Perched on a wooded hillside sits a unique holiday retreat. Treetop house has panoramic views across Loch Broom and out to the Summer Isles and is truly out-of-the-ordinary accommodation in one of the most spectacular scenic parts of Scotland.
Treetop House is a perfect retreat for couples, but has a second study/single bedroom (with separate shower/toilet facilities) and can accommodate 3 people. Although not built in a tree, it has been built among and overlooking the trees, hence it's 'treehouse' status. Uniquely designed and spectacularly situated with panoramic views across Lochbroom and the Summer Isles. It is also perched beside the gorge of a small stream which becomes a cascade of waterfalls in wet weather. Treetop is tastefully and luxuriously furnished and equipped . A romantic and intimate retreat with ever changing views and the music of tumbling water but only a short walk from Ullapool, a cultural and artistic centre in the beautiful North West Highlands.
Set overlooking Ullapool, just a 10 minute walk from the centre, the Stonehouses combines rural isolation with the village experience. The house backs onto the Ullapool Hill Path network so you can easily explore the wilderness on your doorstep, or you could go climbing and mountain walking in one of the numerous mountains and munros. There are golden sand beaches nearby at Gruinard Bay, Achnahaird, Achmelvich, Clachtoll and Clashnessie, to name but a few, and off the coast you can go sea kayaking or take a boat excursion to the islands. Inland you can play golf at Ullapools 9-hole course, fish on the loch and go pony trekking, or you can discover the ruins of Ardvreck Castle and the Iron Age hill forts and brochs of Dun Canna, Dun Legaidh, and Clachtoll. Inverewe Gardens and Lechmelm Gardens and Arboretum are both well worth a visit, or you could experience the arts, music and festivals of Ullapool itself.
Ullapool is set on a main trunk road only a 70 minute drive from Inverness. Inverness Airport is 64 miles from Ullapool, with flights arriving from London Gatwick, Birmingham, Manchester and Bristol, among others, and Inverness Railway Station is 56 miles away in the city centre. There are scheduled buses from Inverness to Ullapool which connect with the ferries, or you can travel by road. Detailed directions provided on booking. Cars can be rented from Inverness Airport or from Ullapool itself. Alternatively, a pick up can be arranged from the airport to Ullapool for around £95 one way. The house is in the heart of one of the most scenic areas of Highland Scotland, but only an hour and a quarter drive from Inverness airport. You can therefore be stepping into The Stonehouse three and a half hours after stepping onto a plane from London, Bristol, Manchester, Birmingham etc.

Saturday market in Ullapool in summer
A luxurious living space with wood burning stove, satellite TV, Wi-Fi and stereo for evenings in. A fully equipped open plan kitchen and dining area. A sauna, luxury freestanding bath and drench head showers. But most unique of all are the views from every room: panoramic seascape and landscapes, dramatic Highland skies, birch wood and waterfall.
On one side sweeping external stone steps provide access to an intimate and sheltered, terrace overlooking the stream gorge and natural forest. From the living and bedroom spaces a small terrace provides vistas towards the west to watch the sun descending and the frequent sun sets over the summer isles. Treetop House also adjoins the Ullapool Hill Path which provides access to a network of hill paths with views across Ullapool and the neighbouring hills and peninsulas.
Treetop House is opening in April 2014. Due to the small gorge and steps, we do not recommend Treetop for young children (under 12). We would recommend families to stay at the nearby Curved Stone House Ullapool benefits from a range of shops. Necessities are catered for with a top quality butcher, a local fish merchant, a good quality deli and a small supermarket (Tesco). A Saturday market during summer showcases local food delicacies and crafts, and there are also two bookshops and a variety of gift shops to browse. With the warming influence of the Gulf Stream, Ullapool is rarely snow bound. On the rare occasion that there is snow, the fact that Ullapool is on a main trunk road that is the gateway to the Hebrides makes it a priority for snow clearance.
