of Big Sand is perfect, the only noise is the babbling burn near The Cabin and on still nights the sound of the waves on the beach. There is virtually zero traffic, just the postman at noon.

The Cabin is situated in a crofting township, so the noisiest neighbourhood inhabitants are the sheep !

Timo's cabin is super cute, and equipped with everything you need. The DVDs, many teas, and beer in the fridge were lovely touches. Timo himself is also a treat — very charismatic. We happened to be at the cabin on a very stormy night (unless that is the usual weather there, you never know with Scotland!) so the sounds of wind and rain were quite pronounced — earplugs or sound machines might be helpful for light sleepers. The location is gorgeous, and a lovely stop on the NC500. Recommended!

We truly recommend this place to people who love nature and spectacular landscapes out of crowd and city centers. The cabin is adoreble and cozy, fully equipped with everything you need (you can even find board games and lots of movies) there was a beer waiting for us and milk and porridge, in the bathroom there was even the hair conditioner. Timo and his wife are very kind people and we deffinitely recommend their cabin to everyone who wants to feel taken care of :)

We had a fab stay in Timo's cabin. We arrived later than hoped after taking the scenic route through Torridon and Appletree and Timo couldn't have been kinder getting us settled into the cabin. It's warm, cosy, comfortable and has been really well thought out with lots of great touches like a DVD library and maps and guides to the local area. The bed is super comfy and we both slept really well in the peace of the cabin. The private bathroom is really close and just on the main house. It's v clean and well set up. Perfect shower after a muddy day out. Timo and his wife were wonderful hosts, giving us lots of tips and history about the area and made our stay really special. We both fell in love with Eska their gorgeous dog Highly recommend the cabin as a base for exploring the amazing beaches, mountains and landscapes of Gairloch and surrounding area. Thanks Timo!

Timo's cabin is the most comfortable, warm and cosy place you can imagine after a long day spent on the road. Timo and his wife are very kind and chatty people with whom we shared very nice time. The breakfast is perfect with delicious hight quality muesli, various herbal tea and real ground coffee. We will definitely come back the next time in Scotland !

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Timo's cabin. The cabin is small but warm & cozy & the bed extremely comfortable. Timo is welcoming & informative but was also respectful of our privacy whilst we were using the main house's facilities. A great stay!
