The Cathair Dhubh Estate is tucked into the rugged Sutherland coastline on the NC500 between the villages of Lochinver and Clachtoll. Nestling in the heart of the spectacular Assynt countryside, it is a haven for wildlife lovers, hikers, fishermen, photographers and outdoor enthusiasts, not to mention those families looking for white, sandy beaches and crystal blue waters.
“The location is stunning, and all the cottages have fabulous views out to sea. There’s loads of space surrounding them, and access to a little cove ideal for launching kayaks and canoes, a tiny beach and coastal walks / running paths to the nearby beaches of Clachtoll and Achmelvich. The cottages themselves are really well laid out and exceptionally well-equipped with lots of fridge/freezer space, and all the pots, pans and equipment needed to cater for groups. Kate was a great host, easy to contact and quick to respond.”
This stunning contemporary one bedroom retreat offers exceptional accommodation for couples or solo travellers looking for something special and provides a perfect base for exploring the north west Highlands of Scotland. The house is situated just three miles from the picturesque fishing village of Ullapool and offers uninterrupted views towards the Summer Isles from all rooms. Tigh na Mara is only available for weekly bookings from April to October but we do offer shorter stays in winter.
“This is simply an amazing space and will be stunning at any time of the year. The accommodation has everything you could want or need. We chose to spend as much time as possible at Tigh-na-Mara and utilised the well equipped kitchen to cook each night, looking at the spectacular view. We had combinations of wind, rain, sun, sleet, hail and rainbows, all of which we could watch from the cosy comfort of the living room, with the wood burning stove keeping us warm. I would highly recommend this place, the pictures are gorgeous, but don’t come close to the reality of just how lovely it is. We have stayed at many Airbnb’s - this is absolutely one of the best and will exceed your expectations. If you can get booked, just do it...”
Coillessan Lodge is situated in Inverkirkaig, just a couple of minutes walk from the beautiful Inverkirkaig Bay. The picturesque village of Lochinver is just a short drive away.
“STAY HERE!! Coilessan is a beautiful cozy modern wooden home in the stunning hamlet of Inverkirkaig. Clean, well equipped, beautiful location , fab balcony and nice safe garden - and it’s all just meters away from the shore (perfect for sea kayaking). We have stayed here twice before and we be back again. This is my dream home! We enjoyed our home made meals both outside and upstairs in the fabulous lounge. This time M and I took the bunk room (we had friends with us), and we were v comfortable - the bunk beds are a good size for tall adults ....2m long and a decent width. We did some lovely walks, wild swims and of course a spot of kayaking on glassy water. Turquoise beaches, abundant wildlife ( spotted water vole, a slow worm, various frogs and one toad, a dragons flies, bumble bees, siskins and a vocal tawny owl all in the garden). Elaine and Charlie are lovely hosts. Spend time at this lovely home and you’ll not be disappointed! Hoping the wooden bear will be back too”
