North Coast 500 (NC500)

Over recent years the NC500 has become a popular destination for visitors from all over the world.  Some like to do it in a few days, but others like to opt for the slow tourism route and spend time in a local area getting to know it.  We offer short breaks from three nights, up to week-long or two or three week stays.  Our location is a great stop off on the NC500 and being not too far from Ullapool you can benefit from peace and quiet in a rural location but still in reach of shops, places to eat and activities.

Cycling the NC500?

We have a cycle store for visitors and even a therapeutic massage service based at the farm to help with aching muscles.

Walking the NC500?

We are a member of VisitScotland Walkers Welcome scheme and we have great local knowledge of walks and out of the way places to go and see.  Lucy grew up here and has children of her own so has a particular passion for finding family friendly walking routes and pram friendly walks near Ullapool.

Motorbike touring the NC500?

Scott is a biking enthusiast and can give you top tips and local destinations.  We also recommend local man Raymond who is mad about bikes and has a service hiring out bikes.

NC500 by car?

We have loads of parking space and our location is well placed as you can reach all the key destinations as a day trip from the cottages: Applecross, Durness, Wick, Brora to name a few.  This is a great option for people who wish to base themselves in one place for a week and experience the NC500 and discover Wester Ross by car.



Just a quick line to thank you for a lovely week at Leckmelm House. Lovely house and I can't think of a better spot. The track out up the hill certainly lets us know we live in flat Lincolnshire! Lottie, our border, has actually gone home with sore paws from the walking we managed. Due to our daughters wedding we never made it to Scotland this summer but we did manage a week in Skye in March and the weather was amazing then as well. You live in paradise although I'm sure you don't have enough time to enjoy it!
