A beautiful location and helpful host

This is a very roomy house, if a teeny bit tired, but that is because it has been lived in. We loved all the signs of a happy family life. It feels like a home not a hotel. Ian was very good at replying quickly to email or text queries.

Ian was polite and efficient in meeting us very soon after our arrival and introducing us to Tigh Na Tilleadh. The home was, in a word, homey, decked out with everything we wanted for our stay. The setting was, in a word, magnificent. We really enjoyed our time there.

This was a cozy, welcoming space- great to cook and share meals around the table in such a beautiful setting. We particularly enjoyed visiting the small shop up the road, and the welcome there from the woman who runs it. I hope we can return and stay longer--Thanks to Ian for sharing this home with us.

This is the second time we've visited. Well worth it. Great place, great host!

We had a great time exploring Polbain and the surrounding area, and Ian's airbnb is a great location to stay. It's a little off the beaten path but well worth the scenic drive. The house is comfortable with plenty of room to house guests, in clean and comfortable bedrooms. The kitchen has all the ammenities you need but I would recommend stocking up on food before you arrive. Close to shore and amazing hikes in the surrounding area. I definitely recommend.

Ian User Profile

I am a sixty-five year-old father of two children, a son and a daughter, who are now growing up. One has left home and is currently ski-teaching in Switzerland before going on the University in Edinburgh in the Autumn. The other will enter the sixth form at Ullapool High School after the summer and will soon also be on her way. My background is "eclectic"; Scottish but born in England and returned home via Brazil. My children are a mix of Scots, Swiss and Spanish. I have lived in Achiltibuie for fifteen years but much of my time is spent working away in London and elsewhere. I essentially have two lives. One is spent very quietly in the depths of the Scottish Highlands in a house overlooking the seas and islands. The other is travelling on business. It used to be in Europe, where I was able to enjoy food and simply seeing. Now it is now mainly in the UK, where cinema in recent times has replaced everything else, including music. So for me my five favourite things are six - two children, food, seeing, cinema and music.
In terms of hosting I have two houses, a small one called Bothan na Tilleadh, which is best for two people, who want to have a quiet time looking at the view to Tanera Mor, and a larger one nearby best suited for up to about six people, which is a comfortable but unassuming home, where you can live as if you were at home, cooking and relaxing with books and films, when not exploring a quite unique area even for the Scottish Highlands.
