Property Description

Leckmelm is a traditionally run Highland Estate fifty-five miles North of Inverness, on the shores of Loch Broom. Ullapool, a thriving West Coast village is three miles away: it boasts a variety of shops, cafes and restaurants to suit all tastes.

A holiday at Leckmelm can be tailored to suit your needs, couples, families with children, groups, climbing clubs and pets we can accommodate you. The cottages are open all year. For those who enjoy the challenge of the outdoors there are numerous Munros and Mountains nearby as well as other activities such as pony trekking, sailing and nature watching. In Ullapool there is a leisure centre with 25m pool, sauna, climbing wall and kid's bouncy castle.

We have let cottages for holidays since 1962 which are quality assured 3 and 2 star by the Scottish Tourist Board and the Green Tourism Business Scheme. Many guests come back year after year - we aim to make you feel welcome and treat Leckmelm as your second home.

All houses are fully equipped and graded by the Scottish Tourist Board. Rates are inclusive of all charges with the exception of the Campbeltown Cottages which have a £1 meter for central heating. We wash all our linen in ecover and pride ourselves on using environmentally friendly cleaning products and reducing our impact on the planet.

I am Lucy Beattie, the second generation at Leckmelm. My Dad set the cottage business up in 1962 with the advent of mains electricity to the area and a time when Ullapool began to become more of a holiday destination. Though times have changed since then we still have one family that have been coming since our first year!

I started working in the business as a teen-ager from cleaning, to grass cutting and painting I have tried my hand at it all from a young age. I took over in 1998 when both my parents died, I was just 21. Looking back on it now I couldn't have done it without great support from employees here at Leckmelm, friends and family.

I changed things around a little when I started - got a computer in 2000 and said goodbye to the typewriter and carbon copy invoices...now a website and online bookings! I have a strong love of the countryside and conservation so have brought the cottage business up to the gold award for Green Tourism and in 2003 won an award from VisitScotland for this work.

Now we have a really good team - Shona in charge of housekeeping - she's been here since 1990 so she keeps me right. Danielle in the office who also runs her own B and B and works on the croft at home and various other helpers from time to time grass cutting, decorating and fixing. Even my own kids are getting involved in the business: Duncan aged 11 will play a welcome tune on the pipes, Solais aged 10 does the IT side of things and Brenna aged 5 loves to polish.....
