From the garden it is possible to walk freely across the croft land and for miles around including to the Manse Loch, one of hundreds of hill lochs in the area, where brown and sea trout can be caught. Even closer to hand, fish on Lochan Ordain on the croft, 2 minutes from the house. We have built a jetty for your convenience. Fish for salmon on the nearby Inver and Kirkaig Rivers (permits required). At the end of the day, store your rod safely on our purpose built rod rack.

Please note, there is a small burn at the bottom of the garden.

“total relaxation”

Reviewed 2 Aug 2013

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”

Reviewed 4 Jul 2013

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”

Reviewed 23 Jun 2013

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.

“A welcome break in Scotland”

Reviewed 28 May 2013

We stayed in this delightful Croft in the midst of a three week tour of Scotland and what a find it is. We arrived to find the kitchen stove blazing away to make the whole place cozy and inviting. It is obvious that the Croft is a much loved family home and there is a wonderful collage of photos to show many happy times. We found everything we needed including many informative books of Scotland and guides to the walks and places to visit in the area, even binoculars to view the wildlife. Not that they were needed to see the Roe deer that came down to graze most evenings. We counted seven on one occasion within feet of the house. Wonderful.

“A brilliant find!”

Reviewed 13 May 2013

This cottage is lovely - better than the pictures suggest. It is in a superb peaceful position at the end of a short track yet is only 5 minutes drive from Lochinver and from many lovely walks. Euan and Hilary are nearby if needed and were very helpful and friendly. A generous basket of logs for each of the two fires was included and the cottage is comfortable (beds and chairs) and well equipped and decorated with some nice personal touches. The sun room is lovely to sit in and we loved to watch the deer who came into the garden or to the hill outside each evening. We hope to return.

“A Real Home From Home”

Reviewed 22 Feb 2013

The cottage is well-maintained and has nice touches that only come from places that real people made their homes in for many years. All the facilities you could possibly ask for, really clean. The kitchen is well equipped. The bedrooms are spacious and beds comfortable. Owners very friendly and helpful. Great sized garden - amazing to see the deer visit! My son loved walking up behind the house trying to photograph the deer. Well situated for all the walks in the area.
