About this location
The Caithness and Sutherland region
The North West Highlands of Scotland offer some of the most stunning sightseeing opportunities in the UK. Inverallan is 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.
Lochinver is the nearest village 1km away from Inverallan. 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.

"Cottage with a View"
Just spent one week at Inverallan, beautifully located to discover the amazing Assynt region - if you like the wildness of North West Highlands, this is the place to be. Comfortable cottage with what … More
16 Feb 2014
The perfect spot from which to tackle Suilven (situated about a 10 minute drive from Glencanisp lodge) and close enough to walk to the excellent Lochinver Larder (for some superb pies). With everything you need (apart from a dishwasher, but that's being lazy/ fussy) the views from the comfortable living room and kitchen are absolutely incredible. I've stayed in many places across Scotland, and would have no hesitation saying this is the best view I've been lucky enough to wake up to. One point to mention, if it's icy then leave your car at the bottom of the very steep driveway. And if you don't fancy reversing back down then do the same (as the turning area at the top is pretty small). Excellent little place, we were sad to leave.

"A home from home with stunning views"
We had one of the most relaxing breaks ever staying in Inverallan. The location is great and the house was clean, bright and very comfortable. The views from the bedroom, kitchen and living room were absolutely stunning! We can't wait to return!
