about us image


Daniel grew up in Applecross and then went on to study Mechanical Engineering at Strathclyde but soon realised he preferred working outdoors! He turned his hand to Joinery which he now does full time for his brother’s business in Applecross. McCowan Joinery has renovated the annex of Clachan Manse into the beautiful 2 double rooms that we run as our bed & breakfast. In the pipeline he is creating a master / family en suite within the house as well as converting the loft into a studio for Clement Design!


The couple like to support and promote locally made crafts and produce where possible. They even have a wee home interiors gift area so that if you like what you see on your stay then you can buy it to take it home to enjoy. As well as Tery’s own interior design range you can purchase toiletries made in Scotland, locally made jams, Scottish artwork, photography and lots of other fantastic and unique finds.


They live in the manse along with their 2 lovely girls Freya & Phoebe who are ages 7 and 8 and their 2 black cats Grizzly and Bo. The family welcome you into their home and hope you have a wonderful stay here.

There are not a lot of accommodation options available in the charming village of Applecross. We stayed one night at Clachan Manse B&B and we were absolutely delighted. We stayed in the Thistle Room, very beautiful and lots of thoughtful touches including a beautiful bouquet of freshly cut flowers. Breakfast was plentiful and delicious. Many thanks to Debs who served breakfast. She very kindly helped me out with a phone call that was a problem. Great service in a lovely setting

- An excellent B&B, September 2019

Only spent one night in the Highland Coo room, and I so wished it were more! Absolute delight of a room, super comfy bed and gorgeous Scottish toiletries and a cosy heated bathroom floor! Tery is charming and helpful and the perfect host. She booked a table for me for dinner and provided a map for me to follow. Breakfast was delicious – really set me up for the day, I sincerely hope I can make a return visit – but for longer next time
