Church House Poolewe


Poolewe is the perfect base for touring the Highlands, walking, Munro climbing, bird watching, golf, pony trekking, sea life cruises, or … just enjoying the peace and quiet.   It lies at the head of Loch Ewe on the Wester Ross Coastal Trail, a drive of approximately 1½ hours north-west from Inverness.

Set back from the road behind St Maelrubha’s Episcopal Church, this purpose-built, church-owned, holiday bungalow adjoins the church hall, but with its own entrance from the church car park. The main bedroom and sitting room are located at the back, overlooking a patio and enclosed lawn area.

Sleeping up to four, there are two bedrooms (1 double, 1 twin) with fitted wardrobes; bathroom with shower over the bath; comfortably furnished sitting/dining room with colour TV, DVD player, radio/CD player, and dining table and chairs. From here the French door leads to the patio and lawn with table and chairs.   The fully fitted and well equipped kitchen has electric cooker, microwave, fridge/freezer and a washer/dryer (plus a washing line in garden). The house is well supplied with duvets, pillows, and bed linen, but does not include towels and tea towels.   Night storage heating, plus extra heaters.   Hair dryer provided. Tea/coffee, milk and shortbread await your arrival.   Clean bed linen provided each week if you are staying for longer than one week.

The village has a well-stocked village store/post office, coffee shop, hotel/restaurant, and an indoor heated swimming pool. The world-famous Inverewe Gardens are within walking distance.

Tariff: £350 per week, inclusive of all heating, electricity and bed linen.  We offer a 10 per cent discount for returning visitors (i.e. £315 per week).

A Quiet Space in the Northwest

The Chapel of St Mary the Virgin is housed on the ground floor of 25 Market Street, Ullapool and above it is a flat.

The flat on the first floor,  has until recently been made available as holiday accommodation on a not-for-profit basis. This arrangement has now ceased, and the flat is now available for use as a resource for the Diocese of Moray, Ross & Caithness, particularly for Clergy, Church-workers or Church groups who wish to make retreat, have quiet time or just ‘time out’.

There are three bedrooms (two twins, and one with a double and single bed), a sitting-room with TV, kitchen and bathroom. No charge is made for using this facility, although guests are asked to cover the costs of the electricity they use, laundry, and cleaning the flat after use (although this last charge can be waived if you wish to do your own cleaning before leaving).

For further details and availability, please contact: Mrs Gilly Court on 01854-612506, or email

Priests using the flat are invited – if they wish – to preside and/or preach at the Eucharist whilst in residence. If this is the case, please contact the Rector, the Rev’d Canon Nicholas Court on:  01854-612506, or via email
