Situated on the spectacular North Coast 500 route, the cottage nestles into the heather covered moorland amidst the dramatic scenery of beautiful, unspoilt Assynt on the west coast of Sutherland. Quinag and the more northerly mountains can be seen from the house and by walking to the top of the garden and climbing the stile, the effort is repaid tenfold by views of the classic Assynt arc of hills and Clashnessie waterfall. A short walk enables the visitor to enjoy the sweeping, sandy beach of Clasnessie Bay. The popular fishing village of Lochinver with its shops and restaurants is around eight miles away with the nearest city of Inverness a 2 hour drive.
There is a large enclosed garden which is mainly grass, heather and rock, with stone seats to allow the visitor to enjoy the magnificent views. Deer are regular visitors to this area and can sometimes be spotted on the skyline. The accommodation itself is on 2 levels, with good access for those who are less active and aims to provide all the comforts of home.
The cottage sleeps a maximum of six in three bedrooms. It has total control central heating. As mobile phone reception can be limited there is a payphone for the use of guests. There is also free Wi Fi internet access.
