Guest review at Hartfield

Hartfield House - Applecross Hostel...

Are you looking for somewhere to stay that will leave a lasting impression? A base for your adventures that is peaceful yet right at the heart of the action? Or just somewhere to get away from it all and read a good book. We might just have what you're looking for.

The Applecross peninsula boasts a breathtakingly beautiful and dramatic landscape. The main township of Applecross (or A'Chomraich in Gaelic, meaning sanctuary) is located around the picturesque bay and enjoys uninterrupted views out over the island of Raasay and the Cuillin Hills of Skye.
