we had a lovely week at Torbreck.The house is very clean and well equipped.Sitting outside we could watch dragonflies,take in the views and listen to the birds in total peace,. The nearby beaches were beautiful and Lochinver was a lovely village. The panini van was tasty fare and we went to the restuarant famed for its pies and had a delicious cullen skink and seafood dishes. A truly relaxing week,many thanks

"Haven of peace and quiet"
We absolutely adored our time at Torbreck. It is fantastic to see its maintained by a family from the area who have history there. The house itself is well equipped and maintained to a high standard. Local facilities are what you would expect from this a part of the country with bigger towns within easy travelling distance. The nearby beaches are simply stunning and within easy reach. We regularly had deer visit us in the actual garden and the walk over the hill to lochan beyond is uteerly stunning. We certainly will be back and have already recommended to friends and family.

"Ideal holiday cottage in beautiful setting"
This is a very nice cottage in a beautiful setting just outside Lochinver. The road continues on to the lovely beach at Achmelvich and beyond to the point of Stoer. The cottage is set back from the road so is very peaceful, with a lovely garden with a table for sitting in and small burn nearby. It is possible to walk from the garden up onto the surrounding hills to get a great view of Assynt. We enjoyed sitting in the sun porch in the evenings and watching the deer coming down to the bottom of the garden. The cottage is very well equipped and comfortable, with all facilities you would require including WiFi. All in all I would very much recommend staying at this cottage, particularly if you get the kind of sunny weather we did.
