Location description from owner

The Caithness and Sutherland region

The North of Scotland is a wonderful place to visit.

There are spectacular mountain ranges and stunning beaches.

Lochinver is situated in the parish of Assynt in the far North West of the Highlands. It is a coastal village nestled within the Assynt/Coigach National Scenic Area and the North-West Highlands Geopark. A wonderful place to relax and escape from the city.

Spend your time in the Highlands surrounded by wildlife, bird watching, walking the hills and beaches.

Lochinver

The holiday house is situated close to Lochinver, within the grounds of Highland Stoneware Pottery, with spectacular views of the village, harbour, sea and mountains.

During your stay in our holiday cottage please visit the pottery to see how the pots are made and to spend your exclusive discount voucher! See the Highland Stoneware website for information.

There are many activities around Lochinver. The quiet pace of life, means that you can also wind down, and relax in the holiday cottage, looking at the lovely views with the fishing boats and yachts sailing in and out of the working harbour and marina.

Several walks can be taken directly from the cottage. You can walk over the Ardroe path to the stunning Achmelvich beach. This leads on to further up the coast to Altanabran, where there is an ancient ruined mill.
If you don't want to walk back to the village you can always try your hand at hitch-hiking!!!

A short walk through the village takes you to the network of paths in the Culag Woods, where you reach the viewpoint or the beautiful 'White Shore', a lovely pebble beach. By making a short drive,there are many more walks that can be done. These include an all abilities path at Lettier Easaidh and also a walk to the spectacular Kirkaig Falls. You might be tempted to visit Achins, the remote bookshop, where you can also enjoy refreshments.

For the more adventurous, Lochinver is a great base for mountain climbing. Suilven is the most distinctive, although it is surprisingly one of the smallest mountains. Ben More Assynt is our local Munro, and most of the other mountains in the area are Corbets.

There are wonderful white sandy beaches near Lochinver. Achmelvich and Clachtoll beaches are the biggest, but with some exploring, you can easily find one of the many secluded hidden gems!

Assynt is an anglers paradise. The many hill lochs provide ample brown trout, some of the larger lochs also hold salmon. There are also the Rivers Inver and Kirkaig for salmon. Of course permits are required - for more information on fishing in Assynt, check Assynt Angling Club's website.

Assynt, is teaming with wildlife, and otters, heron and divers are frequently spotted from the house. The mountains provide a home to birds of prey, not forgetting the many red deer.

Birdwatchers may also enjoy a trip to Handa Island, an RSPB site, with many species, including Puffins in May & June.

Geologically the area has the oldest rocks in the world, and a scenic boat trip, lets you view the highest waterfall in Europe.

Visit the bone caves at Inchnadamph or try going underground into the ancient cave system. - Not advisable for the inexperienced!

Children can safely play in the garden, and around the area, where there is a small playpark, and tarred sport area - great for learning to ride a bike!

Most provisions can be purchased locally, and if you want a really satisfying packed lunch, try the famous Lochinver 'deli' pies.

Pick fresh herbs from the garden to add local flavour to your menus, but if you don't want to eat in every night, Lochinver has become renowned for its wide variety of dining establishments. These range from a Michelin Star restaurant to a Fish & Chip van, all of excellent quality.

As your day comes to an end sit on the patio with a favourite drink and enjoy the sunset , or, if the weather is bad, watch the dramatic waves from the comfort of the cosy log fire.

On a clear night, look up and enjoy some star gazing!

“Perfect Stay”

Reviewed 11 Sep 2016

The cottage is perfectly furnished with an eye to detail, amazing kitchen. Perfect views over the Loch, within walking distance to local restaurants. Loch cruise and ranger led coastal walk were amazing experiences, very informative of the history of this amazing part of Scotland and the dolphins were a bonus. The friendly owners are only too happy to help and advice if required. Don't forget the discount for the wonderful locally produced Highland Stoneware which comes with the cottage rental.

“Beautiful cosy cottage with amazing views”

Reviewed 30 Oct 2012

The cottage was beautifully presented having been fully modernised earlier in the year. It had everything one could need and a cosy fire for the chilly evenings ( the first hard frosts came while I was staying). The Highland Stoneware crockery and pots gave it a special feel. It is very light and sunny ( weather premitting) with south facing windows. If you are a wildlife lover this is a perfect location as there are views out to sea and the hills. It was hard to tear myself away from my seat by the window from which I saw many seabirds, seals, an otter and red deer. The only negative is one can hear some noise from the port area at night.

“wonderful cottage”

Reviewed 6 Oct 2012

wonderful cottage in a beautiful setting. very well equipped and bed is very comfortable.we went in october which was slightly chilly-but there was a great wood burning fire in the house . lots of great places to ea nearby -including michelin starred restaurant within walking distance (the albannach) and a great pub. Scenery was amazing what more could you ask for?

“We had a wonderful and comfortable stay, exceeding expectations.”

Reviewed 22 Jul 2012

We can't think of anything that needs to be changed. The rooms were beautifully presented and had all the equipment and fitting we needed. Being associated with Highland Stoneware the crockery etc was all from the pottery and added a special significance and memory of the holiday. The owners were very considerate in allowing us to bridge two weeks as they didn't have any bookings for either week.

“Magical Lochinver Retreat!”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2012

We were lucky enough to be the first guests to stay here in the first week in June and were blessed with fabulous weather. The house is extremely comfortable with lots of gorgeous Highland Stoneware pottery and amazing views. We cannot rate it highly enough and were even welcomed with homemade pancakes! The house is very well equipped with everything you need for a relaxing stay. We will definitely be back!
