Ian's hospitality is second to none, with conversations only matched by the large spread for breakfast. Ian's place is a great way to get off the beaten path, and Ian knows all the best places to see throughout the area.

Enthusiastic, personable and knowledgeable host. Stunning location overlooking Summer Isles. Simple but characterful and adequate accommodation - Polbain is situated in the largest wilderness in Europe. Good breakfast. Would happily stay here again.

The location of this place is stunning and had I been able to stay longer I am sure I would have found it to be an ideal base. It felt more like a hostel than anything else and it was quite noisy in my room when people were talking/listening to the radio downstairs, but if you're expecting a hostel then it is high-end, clean and comfortable. Ian was a very welcoming host and put on a fantastic spread for breakfast as well as inviting me to watch the 'leaders debate'. I would recommend this place particularly if you are travelling in a group or want to meet other travellers.

Enjoyed my visit. It's a lovely spot. Remote in terms of miles and communication. Don't expect your Smartphone, SMS, GPS, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN), (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) or (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) to work up here. . . And that's part of the allure. Shedding the shackles of urban life, even for a short while at least. If you're of the nervous disposition, bring a map and send back a message in a bottle.

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.
