Description from owner

Description

The artistic owners have created a house of considerable charm filled with an extensive collection of books, paintings and unusual objects of considerable interest. The interior is extraordinarily comfortable.

The house is situated in a stunning location just yards from the beach at Clachtoll with magnificent views fromt the picture window to in the fore-ground, the dramatic shape of Split Rock and beyond, the mountains of Stac Pollaidh, Coigach, and Wester Ross.

Assynt is an area of outstanding natural beauty, a World Heritage site in terms of Geology and an area rich in wildlife and history.

The reality of Clachtoll Cottage always exceeds expectations.

Beautiful, scenic, spectacular and dramatic are all words that have been used to describe Assynt, a parish situated in the North West corner of the Highlands of Scotland.

Location description from owner

The Scotland region

Beautiful, scenic, spectacular and dramatic are all words that have been used to describe Assynt, a parish situated in the North West corner of the Highlands of Scotland. Clachtoll Cotttage is set amidst some of the wildest and most remote mountain and coastal scenery. A legacy of glaciation, much of the hinterland consists of rugged, distinctive and isolated mountains set amidst immense tracts of bare moorland and blanket bog, all strewn with lochs and lochans – where deer are more likely to be encountered than human beings. The coastline is deeply indented by numerous lochs or arms of the sea, producing stunning glimpses of savage beauty at every turn. Sparkling salmon rivers run to the sea where the rocky shore is interspersed with marvellous sandy beaches.
Clachtoll Cottage overlooks one of the most beautiful and safe beaches. Viewed from different vantage points, groups of mysterious and weirdly-shaped mountains peer above the skyline, presenting a panorama of ever changing shapes which may confuse the traveller on the move. Always vast, this landscape can in turn, seem intimidating or by a weather change, assume a mantle of breathtaking beauty. Storm watching from the warm comfort of the cottage is a hypnotic leisure activity. Huge waves crash against the rocks in the fore-ground and the air is filled with spray.

Clachtoll Cottage is situated at a stunning seaside location at one of the most photogenic spots in this magnificent area.

The house is in a perfect position to use as a base to explore Assynt.

Stoer

Clachtoll faces west over the Bay of Clachtoll. The southern half of the head of the bay, south west from the car park, provides a truly glorious beach of white sand lapped by idyllic turquoise water. From the Clachtoll Cottage you gain stunning mountain views to the south. For many this would be enough in itself to make the journey worthwhile.

North west from the car park is another inlet, where the house is situated, which in marked contrast to its neighbour comprises layers of sloping rock strata and stone. This, and the rocks of the headlands either side of the sandy beach, make Clachtoll a renowned spot for geologists. Apparently it shows evidence of an ancient land surface covered by later rocks, and guarantees that you are as likely to see visitors heading for the beach with helmets and geologists' hammers as with flippers and snorkels...

Between the two inlets is a grassy headland on which you find a salmon bothy. This small stone building is part of the Clachtoll Salmon Station, preserved by the Assynt Historical Society and open to visitors from 10.00am to 6.00pm daily. Displays show how the salmon station, which closed in 1994, would have operated. Less obvious than the bothy, and a little to the north east of it, is the ice house in which the catch would be kept until transported to market. Clachtoll Cottage is on the shore of the bay overlooking this area and with superb views south to Coigach and the mountains of Wester Ross

A little north of Clachtoll and almost overlooking the next bay along the coast, the Bay of Stoer, is Clachtoll Broch. At their highest, the broch walls stand about 2m high
