Two amazing holiday houses       in Scotland's greatest landscape 

The Brochs of Coigach

Brochs are Iron Age roundhouses. You can find several ruined remnants in the Scottish Highlands and Islands. The Brochs of Coigach are built like real brochs - but they are as contemporary and luxurious and unique and eco friendly as any holiday houses you could think of. Or even more so.

Scàl's Broch is a one bedroom hide-away. It has an open plan kitchen, dining and sitting area that is 8 metres long and 6 metres wide. The bedroom is also huge, and so is the bathroom which has a sauna, too. Pictures by some of Scotland's leading contemporary artists hang on the walls all around you.


Gille Buidhe's Broch

contains two bedrooms and two sitting rooms. The main room is 11 metres long and 10 metres wide. Everything is on a larger scale than in Scàl's Broch. It is suitable for couples, for two couples or for families. Some people rent both Brochs for family holidays.

Gille Buidhe and Scàl were two brothers who are said to have been the first people to settle Coigach, the remote peninsula in the northwest of Scotland where we live. You can take that with a pinch of salt. But it's a nice story. That's how the abodes that we named after them look from the sea. Just a part of the glorious landscape.

And if you need any more reasons to visit The Brochs, Red Magazine wrote that we are "The Best of Britain for a Wilderness Getaway". The German travel magazine MERIAN lists us as "One of the World's 100 Dream Destinations for Two". The Royal Incorporation of Architects (RIAS) named The Brochs as one of the best new buildings in Scotland in 2011. That was the year when we started. And The Civic Trust thinks the Brochs are one of the best new developments in Scotland "for design and cultural, social and economic contribution to the local community." Our favourite is Scottish Field's description of The Brochs as "the most memorably eclectic self-catering property in the country".

On your arrival, a small decanter with finest Scottish malt whiskey is waiting for you. You will also find fair trade tea and coffee, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and all soaps and cleaning products you need, wherever possible products with an eco label.


Oh, and for a bit more showing-off,

the judges of the Highlands and Islands

Tourism Awards reckoned in three

of the last four years that we

are one of the Highlands and Islands's four

best accommodation providers...

... and the male half of The Brochs' creators is also a successful  author. His whimsical recollection of a German immigrant in Scotland, published by Ullstein Verlag, Berlin, runs in its third edition.


If you think Scotland, you think most likely of the Highlands. That's where we are. If the weather isn't as brilliant as in the other pictures - which, to be honest, happens occasionally - the views still are. Like this one of famous Stac Pollaidh in shrouds.
