The Old Byre Self Catering at Arrina, on the Applecross Coast Road

The Old Byre is situated in Arrina, a traditional crofting township on the South side of Loch Torridon, on the Coast road from Shieldaig to Applecross. There are stunning views over the loch to Diabaig, Beinn Alligin and Liathach beyond. Arrina or Arinacrinachd, the full Gaelic name as shown on some maps, means 'The Shieling of the Picts' and there is a standing stone close by. It is an ideal base for all types of outdoor pursuits and a peaceful place to enjoy nature and wildlife. Arrina is 10 miles from Shieldaig and 15 miles from Applecross.


The Old Byre is a tastefully converted byre ( cattle shed) , to the rear of the Old School. In times gone by it would have housed the teacher's cow. Facilities have improved immensely, and it now offers cosy and comfortable for two humans. It even has free Wifi.


There are twin beds with electric blankets. The beds can be put together if required. 


There's a dining table and fold up chairs; easy chairs and sofa; TV, radio,DVD, CD player with ipod dock, and a hairdrier. There's a showerroom with instant shower and toilet; and a kitchen with fridge, microwave, oven/hob/grill, all crockery and cutlery as well as basics like teabags, kitchen towel, cooking oil, foil etc.. All linen and towels are provided. Just bring your food and anything you can't live without. 


The tariff is £30 per person per night, with a minimum booking of two nights. There is no single person supplement. 


The Old Byre is not suitable for children or pets. 


Mobile coverage is very patchy so you can escape the rat race and enjoy the peace and quiet.
