Seabank Holiday Cottage is situated in the village of Aultgrishan, Melvaig, Wester Ross in the North West Highlands of Scotland.
It was built around 1900 and is a traditional West Highland croft house, which has been extended. It occupies an elevated position on the Wester Ross Coast with spectacular, uninterrupted views towards Skye, Harris and Lewis. Access is via a private road and bridge over a small burn.
