The Scottish Highlands region
The North West Highlands of Scotland offer some of the most stunning sightseeing opportunities in the UK. Kirkaig Chalets are situated within the remote unspoilt beauty of Assynt Coigach National Scenic Area. There are many coastal walks and remote sandy bays, giving you the chance to discover the sea-life that inhabit the coastal waters warmed by the gulf stream.
Minke whales, dolphins, basking sharks and seals are not uncommon. Spectacular mountains waiting to offer you the most beautiful panoramas, with walks or climbs for all grades. Sunsets are a speciality in this rural and remote part of the world. Geologically the area has the oldest rocks and the highest waterfall in the UK, and is just oozing history and legends.
The Lochinver area
Lochinver is the nearest village three miles away from the Kirkaig Chalets. It is a delightful fishing village on the rugged coastline of the Scottish Highlands and it settles amidst the spectacular scenery of Sutherland’s wild dramatic countryside, of high cliffs, waterfalls and hills.
The Assynt Hills are reported to be the oldest in Britain and contain some of the great mountains of the North such as Suilven, Canisp, Quinag and Ben More Assynt. Boat trips to Handa Island bird sanctuary or to the Summer Isles. Or you could visit the bone caves at Inchnadamph or try caving in our ancient cave system. Information regarding all types of fishing and all grades of walking and climbing, along with additional information on activities like cycling, kayakking, adventure days or day trips are available from the award winning tourist information centre in Lochinver.
There is a leisure centre with gym and internet access in Lochinver and a swimming pool complex in Ullapool. The local village hall provides live music from time to time and doubles as a theatre. There are restaurants to suit all in Lochinver from the award-winning, and now Michelin 1 star, Albannach Hotel to a value for money pub - Caberfeidh. In all there are 3 hotels with restaurants, a pub with restaurant and the highly recommended Lochinver Larder with Riverside Bistro. There are also some very good eating places in the surrounding area; to the north there is the Kylesku Hotel and to the south The Altnacealgach Bar & Restaurant. You will find a petrol station, pubs, shops and a supermarket in Lochinver too.
To the north of Lochinver there are several Brochs and cairns of great historic interest with perhaps the biggest broch being at Clachtoll, on the sea coast to the south of Stoer beach. Amidst the dramatic coastline of Sutherland can be found the clear white sandy beaches at Achmelvich, Clachtoll and Clashnessie.
The scenic town of Ullapool is under an hours drive away where you can take the 3 hour ferry to Stornoway or visit the Summer Isles.

The chalet is very comfortable, with spectacular views. Watching the sunset from the balcony with a glass of wine in hand is a pure delight. Great location for spectacular sandy beaches and very safe environment for young children. Lovely to wake up and find deer in the surrounding fields. We've been to the chalet 3 times and have loved every minute.
