Unique, architect designed, one bedroom, self-contained accommodation for up to two people, situated on our croft in Inverkirkaig near Lochinver. We have 2 purpose-built micro-houses (Lazybed Accommodation) both privately situated and surrounded by stunning scenery. It is possible to book either cabin (for less) through us directly if you wish.
Lazybed is a bespoke micro-house with an interior of 31sqm, built in 2011 by North Woods Construction Ltd. utilising 100% renewable Scottish timber. The high sloping ceiling and 3 metre front windows create a roomy, luxurious, livable space tucked in amongst trees. Sheep’s wool insulates the property throughout whilst hot water is powered by a mini, Norwegian-manufactured, boiler system. The main room has a wood-burning stove (and electric heater) keeping the cabin lovely and warm for those occasions when the weather turns inclement. The accommodation consists of a lounge /well equipped kitchen, a separate cosy kingsize/twin bedroom, a bathroom with a walk-in shower, toilet and wash hand basin. There is a generously sized deck area with views South West to Inverkirkaig’s tranquil sea loch and the wonderfully remote peninsular of Rubha na Breige. We now have another cabin for holiday bookings (the Batbox) on the east side of our bungalow and about 65 metres from Lazybed. It is possible to book either cabin (for less) through us directly. Please check all terms & cancellation conditions before making a booking.
Lazybed is located, adjacent to the owner's house, on their small croft in Inverkirkaig, a lovely coastal settlement, a few miles south of Lochinver and about 40 miles north of Ullapool. This area of the magnificent North West Highlands is known as Assynt, a geographically and geologically remarkable landscape. Many of Scotland’s most individual and charismatic mountains are close by and the stunning coastline stretches north to the white sandy beaches of Achmelvich, Oldshoremore and Sandwood Bay and south to the wild, rocky coves and shell sands of Wester Ross. A multitude of trout-filled lochs cover the hinterland and the beautiful River Kirkaig, with its excellent salmon fishing and waterfall path, is only 10 minutes walk from the door. Continue beyond the falls passing Fionn Loch and eventually reach the summit of Suilven, northern Scotland’s most iconic peak. Walking, kayaking, fishing or simply relaxing, this beautiful area of Scotland has it all.
  • Truly magical place. Highly recommended.

  • Great cabin - amazing location

    Clint2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • We spent our New Year’s Eve in the cabin and it was the perfect way to see in the new year completely secluded, with great views of the the bay and the stars at night. The cabin has everything you need and the log burner kept it lovely and toasty!

  • This is a lovely place to stay, everything required for a short stay and super helpful hosts too. We loved the garden, the views, the bench, everything!

    Iain2019-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at the Lazybed cabin for our mini-moon and it was a perfect escape from the hecticness of our special day. The place was perfect . David and Gita included thoughtful extra touches for us to celebrate our wedding, and were also incredibly helpful when we had car trouble! Even if the weather was mainly rubbish we had a fab time hanging out by the fire, and when the sun came out, nothing beat sitting on the bench with a beer, reading and looking over the Loch 💕

    Rebecca2019-04-05T00:00:00Z
  • A lovely cabin in a beautiful part of the world. Well worth a visit

    Anna2019-03-25T00:00:00Z
  • The Lazybed was superb. We loved its eco credentials and the house has been really well thought through. We will definitely stay again and have recommended the Lazybed to several friends. The photos don't do this place justice, hugely snug and spacious. The surrounding area is amazing and the lazybed is fantastically located for hiking. Thanks again Gita for your great hospitality!

    Our Cow Shed glamping shed is unique and a bit quirky. If you are looking to get away to the peace and tranquility of the highlands then look no further. The Cow Shed has fitted kitchen, double bed and wood burning stove, with new shower room and toilet facilities to the outside of the building. Ideal for couples looking for something a bit different. The Cow Shed can be enjoyed anytime of the year, as it is heated with a wood burning stove or electric heaters so you will not go cold.
    Where the Cow Shed is located is ideal for just getting away it looks onto the sea where you have some amazing views. Large fishing boats and Cruise ships pass in the summer and winter months also with the occasional sailing boat. There are some nice places to go fishing if that is your interest and some amazing walks from advanced hill walking to just a relaxing walk taking in the scenery. If you are into whale or dolphin spotting then there is a great place to do this near Stoer Light House this is about a 4 mile walk from the Cow Shed.
  • We had such an amazing stay. Super remote, quiet and beautiful. Great hosts, very friendly and accommodating. Wish we could have stayed longer!

    Bethany2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Really nice place in a beautiful area of the country. The hosts were incredibly helpful. We got into a bit of bother on the road and Mark was an absolute lifesaver. We highly recommend this location.

    Jamie2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Outstanding place to stay. Very different but perfect! The view is outstanding and couldn’t have asked for a better place to stay.

    Sarah2019-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • The cowshed is is set in beautiful setting, so peaceful. You can hear the waves on the beach which is so relaxing. The accommodation itself is cosy and comforting, beautifully set out with everything you need. Sitting by the log fire with a wine or coffee just relaxing. Memorable.

    Yvonne2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • We loved it here. It's a lovely converted building, that was much more spacious than I had expected, in an amazing location with all the amenities you would need. We particularly loved the wood burning stove. Would highly recommend!

    Katie2019-11-14T00:00:00Z
  • This place is SO special. It’s much bigger inside than the photos show and SO cosy. Falling asleep in front of the fire was a dream. There is a beautiful walk down to a really stunning white sand beach and the view from the cabin is lovely in the morning, especially if the sheep are grazing close by. Mark and Hilary are amazing hosts - really accommodating and friendly. What a place to live! If you want a base from which to explore the beautiful sandy beaches and coast line of west Scotland - this is the place. It’s a little slice of heaven. Thanks for having us x

    Katy2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very cozy hut with a full kitchen, bathroom, and a fireplace! We had an amazing time at this little place. I also believe it’s a great get away for couples!

    Maximilian2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Really great stay, lovely wee building with all you need for a peaceful stay away. Hosts were lovely and we loved meeting Boomer the dog too. It's very easy to find, cosy with the burner or heater on and ample space for eating in, should you chose to! Nice little touches too with the Shortbread and dram out on the kitchen worktop for your arrival.

    Lochinver, Scotland, United Kingdom

    A modern house in an ancient landscape. In a country of beautiful landscape, Assynt in the far north west highlands stands out for its extraordinary geology, mountains, lochs and coastline. With some of the oldest rock in the world (3.5Bn years old), numerous remains of iron age settlements, abundant wild life, wild terrain and sporting activities, there is much to see and experience in this special corner of Scotland. It is remote yet accessible, being a 2 hour drive from Inverness through wonderful scenery and generally empty roads. So much so, that at certain times of the year, visitors are more likely to see red deer than other cars. The house is newly built, of solid (cross lateral) timber construction allowing for a very open and distinctive interior. With under floor heating from an air source heat pump and wood burning stove and high standards of insulation it is warm and welcoming throughout the year. The guest bedroom has its own door to the outside and ensuite shower and toilet. It is connected with the rest of the house by 10 steps from inside your room. Guests are free to use the upstairs ‘gallery’ sitting room with spectacular views of nearby sea and more distant mountains. This is where breakfast will be served as shown in one of the images. Please take note that the living room and kitchen area is also very much our own living space during the day and evening, so while it is absolutely fine if you want to sit at the table in the panorama window for a while, you will not be able to use this space as freely as if it was an area especially for guests to use. If you decide to have an evening meal with us (optional) it will be within the kitchen/living room. We are vegetarian so this is the food we serve, but we can assure you of its variety and freshness. We can provide a meal for our guests provided it fits in with other commitments we might have, so if you would like to join us for a meal on one of your evenings please enquire in advance what is possible at the time of your visit. We charge £18 pounds per person for a three course meal (not including wine or beer), you can bring what you like to drink or make a financial contribution to drinks we provide. Being a new house, the garden is in a state of development. There are always projects going on and some materials around, be it related to Nigel's artworks or generally to do with developing the garden. The house is accessed up a track through a surrounding field. There are several houses and crofts nearby, a beach with easy access to the sea and many places to walk and explore. Clashnessie has no shops, the nearest village is Lochinver (8 miles away) where there is a selection of shops, a petrol station, restaurants and other places to visit. Please click on "Location" to read our advice on eating out in Lochinver. It is possible to get to the house by public transport from Inverness, but this is likely to take a day’s travel. To explore the area and for ease of travel it is recommended guests come by car. Inverness is best reached by either train or plane, and we recommend if coming from the south of England, to use the Caledonian sleeper service that arrives in Inverness at 8.30 am. There is a Budget car rental depot five minutes from the station. We can provide further advice on routes etc if required. Assynt is often described as being in the ‘wild north west’. This is an apt description of the landscape and at times the weather. Strangely this part of Scotland often has drier weather than places further south. Being on the coast the weather is changeable with often dramatic skies and ever changing light. Highly photogenic and at times it is extraordinary to experience such variety in a short space of time. Finally, another advantage of being on the coast with wind (of varying force) there are few midges – a real bonus in the height of the summer.
    Clashnessie is a small place and doesn't have any shops. The nearest village is Lochinver, 8 miles south of Clashnessie. There is also "Flossie's Beach Store" by the road in Clachtoll (approx. 2.5 miles away) where you can buy essentials and get a coffee or tea when out and about. We advise guests to make arrangements for eating out if that is what you would like to do. Compared to cities and many places in Europe, restaurants here often don't serve hot food for very late into the evening, especially in the early part of the season or later in autumn. In the summer it can get very busy too, so if you haven't booked a table you may have to wait a while until there is a table available. I am happy to give you more information if needed, but as a general rule I would say, make sure you book a table and don't plan to arrive at the restaurant of your choice too late (especially in the early part of the season (April) some restaurants don't take food orders after 7:30pm). The restaurants in Lochinver are: Lochinver Pie Shop (specialises in all sorts of pies but also serves other dishes), The Caberfeidh Dining Pub (pub bar and restaurant), Inver Lodge (higher end of the price spectrum), An Cala Cafe (serves breakfast, lunch and evening meals until around 8 in the summer), Peet's Restaurant (in the harbour area), Culag Hotel, Glen Canisp Lodge (a B&B which also serves food in the evening to non residents, approximately a mile and a half up a single track road branching off left from the main road). They all have their own websites if you want to do a bit of forward planning.
  • Andrea and Nigel are lovely hosts with an even lovelier space. The room offers amazing views of the country side, and the drive there is one beautiful scene after another. Andrea and Nigel gave us wonderful recommendations of what galleries we could find in the area, as well as showing us their own work. Breakfast was fantastic. We can't recommend this place enough, and would be delighted to stay with them (and Bruno, their wonderful dog!) again.

    Janine2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • This was my first time using Airbnb and Andrea and Nigel provided an outstanding first experience. They thought of everything and the set up at their home was perfect for what we needed. Private yet homey and accommodating - with the extra advantage of an awesome Bruno who welcomed us each time we got back to the house. The place is beautifully and uniquely decorated mostly with their own art which just added to the beautiful landscapes surrounding their home. Friendly people, beautiful animal and lovely home: 10/10 from me!

    Maria2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Would definitely go back there, wish our stay would have been longer. Andrea and Nigel were unbelievably helpful, our car had a flat tire in the middle of nowhere and they were kind enough to pick us up there as there was no other help whatsoever from the hire company. Without them we probably would still be standing on the side of the road. The place was great with amazing views and lots to explore near by. Hope we manage to be back there soon!

    Christoph2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderfull time here in clashnessie ! The bedroom was cosy and clean, the house and garden was super cute, but the best part is the surroundings ! It feels like being in the middle of nowhere, and you can enjoy this while eating breakfast, which was amazing. The hosts were very nice with us, easy to talk to ! Would highly recommend :)

    Joel2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Striking location, intriguing hosts, beautiful accommodations, and a very gracious home for even one day. Countryside is filled with such beauty and history, an excellent choice to stay.

    Tom2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • We spent one night with Andrea and her husband. Their great house is a bit out of the way, but that's why we chose the room. Great hostess, excellent breakfast, great accommodation. We would come back anytime!

    Ramona2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous accommodation in such a remote part of Scotland. Wonderful hosts and enjoyed seeing Andrea's craft workshop and learning about Nigel's sculptures.

    Margaret2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Andrea and Nigel are very nice people. The view is really amazing and the breakfast was really nice with lots of choices and a nice spot with an amazing view. The room and bathroom were very nice and clean. The hosts gave nice and helpfull tips about the surroundings. We had a nice and comfortable stay.

    Clashnessie, Scotland, United Kingdom

    Award-winning tiny house is located the most northerly stretch of NC500, Scotland's answer to Route 66. Stay in this partly off-grid, wooden house on wheels with its breathtaking view, very close to the beach. Lots of other things to explore nearby.
    The tiny house movement began in the USA as people explore the future possibilities of living in compact, low energy spaces. This tiny house was built by British trail-blazer Mark Burton (http://www.custombuiltsurrey.com/one-bed-house-on-wheels.html), who won an award from the Independent Newspaper, and has featured in numerous "lifestyle" TV programmes including Grand Designs. The tiny house in Clashnessie is the first to go largely off-grid, depending on mains supply for water and high-output electric appliances only. Supplementary power comes from photovoltaic panels and cylinder gas, and there is a composting lavatory. But this is not rough-living, and offers a shower, a fabulous king-size bed, a fridge - more or less all you need in a house, except space. The furniture has been chosen to a high design standard; this is emphatically not a caravan!
    We are located on the most northerly stretch of NC500, 'Scotland's answer to Route 66' and voted one of the six most scenic coastal roads in the world by Traveller Magazine. (http://www.northcoast500.com/home.aspx). Clashnessie itself is quite simply a magic place, with a large sweep of safe sandy beach that is never busy, a fascinating coastline and rugged hinterland. The patient observer can see seals, otters, dolphins, porpoises, and sometimes orcas, as well as varied bird-life. Red deer are as common as rabbits - a nuisance to agriculture, but splendid beasts nonetheless. This is Scotland's "wild west", lying north of the Hebrides. It is one of the dark places of Europe, perfect for astronomers. The area, Assynt, is also world famous for its geology, and the tiny house sits on some of the oldest rock in the world. Just round the coast is the spectacular sea-stack, the Old Man of Stoer. The ring of local mountains - Quinag, Canisp, Suilven, Cul More and Beag, Ben More, and Stac Pollaidh, stand up dramatically on the landscape. No Munros among them except Ben More Assynt, but challenging day-climbs for all that. Brown trout abound in local lochs, and salmon fishing can be arranged by permit. There are numerous places suitable for sailing, kayaking and scuba-diving, and the "main" road, scenic, undulating single-track with passing places, makes for interesting cycling and motor-cycling. Botanists also enjoy the area for its flora including varieties of wild orchid. The nearest pub and shop are in Drumbeg, 5 miles to the north, and the hub of local activity is the scenic fishing village of Lochinver, 9 miles south, which has shops, a varied offer of social events, and 9 food outlets from a sandwich bar to a Michelin-starred restaurant. The North Assynt Estate in which the crofting "township" of Clashnessie is situated, celebrates twenty years now since its famously unprecedented tenant buy-out, since when, in an area notorious for the Highland Clearances and absentee landlords, the people finally own the land. The Gaelic language is also enjoying a revival in the area. And yes, there are midges, but we cope with them.
  • Pam is a wonderful host who will go out of her way to make your stay enjoyable. I would recommend going on her 'historical' tour as she is very knowledgeable of the area and history. The tiny house is 'tiny' but contains all the essentials you will need for a pleasant stay. It is a beautiful area with many hike opportunities.

    Tom2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • The Tiny House was a unique and unforgettable place to stay in a gorgeous location. The hike to the waterfall just down the lane was amazing. Host Pamela was wonderful, stocked the fridge with breakfast for us and even came to the rescue with loaner wellies when my shoes got soaked--and dried them off on her radiator overnight! The house lived up to its name--very tiny!--but a fun, cozy adventure in off-the-grid living. Be prepared for an experience a bit closer to camping than a standard b and b, but that was part of the charm.

    Allison2019-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Definitely the best house in the north, great view, nice neighbours with cute fringes, and amazing host that gave us awesome, memorable welcome!

    Kajetan2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • The place is truly unique, can only recommend to visit Pamela's tiny house in Clashnessie.

    Arne2019-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic experience at Pamela's Tiny House in Clashnessie. The house has everything you need for a great stay, and the local area and people are amazing. Definitely worth the trip!

    Jonathan2019-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at the Tiny House was amazing! The house is really small, but is has everything you need (and the bed is amazing with the most beautiful view). We stayed here for 9 days and we loved every day. When the weather would permit it, we would eat breakfast outside while enjoying the view of the beach and the waterfall. We walked al lot every day, the area is beautiful! Pamela was a great host, she was very helpful before and during our stay. She told us about nice walks in the area and she was always ready to help us if needed. This was a vacation to remember.

    Hilde2019-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • The house is located in a wonderful nature and is equipped with everything you need. Despite the size you have enough space and can enjoy the beautiful views. Pamela has explained everything in detail to us, she is a very loving and attentive hostess. We really enjoyed spending some time there. It's really an experience !. Thank you so much for everything. With very best regards Gudrun and Stefan

    Stefan2019-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay in the Tiny House - a wonderful place to get away from it all in a beautiful setting. Pamela was a great host and made us feel very welcome. She provided us with some great recommendations of things to do in the local area to make the most of our time here. Would definitely recommend.

    Bothan na Tilleadh is a wee house on the edge of Europe - in Polbain by Achiltibuie on the Coigach Peninsular in Wester Ross in North-western Scotland overlooking the sea with views of the Summer Isles. It is perfect for couples or a young family.
    Most accommodation on Coigach is larger. Our wee house is one of very few that is ideal for a couple or a young family. It is neat, compact and convenient. It features a large window in the sitting room so, no matter what the weather, and here we have weather, the view can enjoyed, sunshine or rain. We have extra beds, a cot and a high-chair that can put at your disposal.
    Polbain offers tranquility above all. It is quiet with quite superb views over the seas and Summer Isles. Coigach as a wholes has wonderful walking, the superb Achnahaird beach and some of the best sea-kayaking in Britain as well as a good shop and two bars and restaurants.
  • Good scenic location. Rained a lot however bungalow was warm as fully equipped with portable heaters

  • Ian is an amazing host. 5 stars

    Yash2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay. Amazing location. Great local tips.

    Jack2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • Had a great stay at Ian’s place. He gave us detailed instructions since sat nav and mobile coverage up there is spotty so found the place with ease. He gave us spot on recommendations for the pub down the road and we had an amazing meal there. And the views from the sitting room, out onto the water were amazing. Would stay here again :)

    Chris2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • A comfortable bothan at a secluded location, equipped with everything you need. The rules may be a bit more emphasized than usually, and Ian will take a good look at you – no doubt some guests in the past misbehaved a bit –, but he is a genial, thoughtful and attentive host. I definitely recommend the bothan, we had a good time there, and it is quite a special place. Everything is clean and in good condition.

    András2019-09-18T00:00:00Z
  • Tidy flat with all ammenities you'd expect. Fabulous location. Remote if you are looking for that - we were. Stay again.

    Stephen2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cosy cottage in a beautiful location. Ian made us feel very welcome and we were delighted to find that the house not only had absolutely superb views but was full of lovely little touches that made it feel comfortable, homely and so much more than a holiday cottage. Would definitely like to return.

    Jane2019-09-06T00:00:00Z

    Karen2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing pod and hot tub. Lovely place

    Linda2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at this beautiful cabin as part of our nc500 journey. The space was absolutely spotless and decorated perfectly. It was also much bigger than we expected from the photos! The hot tub was very private and the fairy lights made it just perfect at nighttime as we sat looking at the stars. The little touches such as dressing gown and slippers made this stay feel luxurious. Thank you for an amazing stay!

    Laura2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • A treat of a pod to stay in for the weekend. So clean, lots of nice touches like robes, slippers, ice machine for a complementary nip. the hot tub was the reason we booked and it was fantastic, overlooking lochinver harbour but not overlooked. We would definitely recommend and return.

    Becky2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Very nice Pod with a great jacuzzi, which lifted our spirits during our 17 day trip to Scotland. The night was perfect and the gentle awakening in the jacuzzi. Ben is very responsive and quickly answers any questions mo Thanks to him

    Orlane2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Had a very enjoyable and comfortable stay. Hot tub took a while to warm up but it was worth the wait. Memorable experience which we hope to try again in summertime.

    Marty2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Superb wee pod. Everything you need for a few nights stay. Super clean and very accomodating. Star gazing (through clouds!) from the hot tub topped off a brilliant long weekend.

    Maggie2019-12-09T00:00:00Z

    My place is close to the beach and family-friendly activities. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, limited mobility, families (with kids), big groups, and furry friends (pets).
    Our bungalow is close to the white sand beach of Clachtoll Bay. The house is all on one level with a wetroom bathroom. There is also a removable ramp to the front door. Which makes it suitable for limited mobility.
    We are situated in Assynt Coighach National Scenic Area and the Geopark. Surrounded by secluded beaches, stunning mountains and the oldest rocks in Britain.
  • Amazing place and can't fault it at all

    Susan2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Perhaps the best Airbnb experience I've had. An awesome location with beach one way and gneiss landscape the other. Cottage spacious, well equipped, ideal. Host friendly. Definitely recommended.

    Tim2019-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • You will not be disappointed with Williams place. The views are amazing and the themes are awesome. The personal local touches really makes it. I love the puffins wish we could have visited puffin island but sadly we came out of season. Plenty of firewood is provided. We did not feel cold at all. This is definitely worth a visit.

    Lisa2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent host and house. Highly recommend a stay

    Susan2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • A wonderful property in a beautiful and wild part of Scotland. Spotlessly clean, great welcome, William is always available to answer any queries either about the lovely cottage or ideas for what to do and see in the area. Lovely decoration, great wood stove to fall asleep in front of after a long day out. Very comfortable. We had a great time, and would totally recommend either for a short stay if travelling the North Coast 500 or as a base for exploring this stunningly beautiful part of Scotland. Many thanks William and Caroline for all your help and hard work. Look forward to seeing you again soon. Alan

  • Set in a stunning location and very well equipped, the house is a wonderful place to be based to access the splendour and majesty of the Assynt region. We really enjoyed our stay and would recommend the house. The welcome from the owners was warm and friendly

    Andrew2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely cottage, lovely views, dog friendly beaches nearby and very nice, caring hosts. We arrived in the rain half way through a power cut. Willians wife brought us lights and a flask of boiling water for tea. Would definitely recommend staying there.

    Lochinver, United Kingdom

    Swallow Byre is situated 7 miles from Lochinver and has a peaceful outlook not far from some of the loveliest beaches in Assynt.
    Whatever the weather, Swallow Byre is a cozy space to explore the area and return to warmth, woodstove and wetroom. A space to relax, walk, or just gaze at the stars.
    Situated not far from the Stoer lighthouse, whose beam light can be glimpsed on a dark night, a space to "renew ones batteries"!
  • A welcoming base from which to explore the wonders of Assynt, Swallow Byre is cosy, clean and very comfortable. I'll stay again if I get the chance.

    Ruth2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful byre in a great location for peace, relaxing and exploring. Despite it being December we were kept lovely and warm by the Rayburn and wood burner - and what an amazing bed! We would most definately recommend Swallow Byre... It was a little slice of heaven.

  • Beautiful secluded little bothy with loads to see on the in the surrounding area. Lovely owner, thanks for a great stay Jane.

  • We had such a lovely stay at Jane's place. The location is truly stunning, Jane is so friendly and kind, plus the house itself is spacious, well equipped and homely. Thank you!!

    Carla2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place! Jane is a great host, she even offered delicious homemade scones. The old barn is great for a weekend or week away and feels like home away from home. It is very clean. The kitchen offers everything and even more you need!

    Anneke2019-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Best place to stay if you’re doing the NC500 road trip!

    Howard Tjendra2019-01-16T00:00:00Z

    Set In the picturesque village of drumbeg in the north west highlands, We run a little croft with sheep, goats, chickens, dogs & cats so you can experience a taste of rural highland life. An excellent stop over if you are on the NC500 or a space to relax for a few days, the choice is yours. WiFi is satellite so good speed and mobile signal can be slow but that’s all part of life in highlands, instead, fill your day with walks, Munro’s or peat tracks or fishing in the many local lochs.
    Zero light pollution and absolute quiet makes this one of the places where you can really get away from it all. The only noise you’ll perhaps here is the cluck of chickens, the bleat of sheep and goats looking for their breakfast! You are of course welcome to help out on our little croft, gathering eggs, feeding goats etc or just sit and chill out with views to die for of Loch Drumbeg and watch for deer coming down off the hill in the evenings. This does mean that this is a remote rural location and amenities are limited, mobile signal is patchy at best.
    Drumbeg has a village shop with a delicious deli counter and all the basics, including fresh fruit & veg and a good selection of beer and wines, including Drumbeg cask whiskey! There is also a small hotel with bar just a short walk away (seasonal) Restaurants are in lochinver, a 15 mile drive or kyleslu 9 miles so we recommend that you eat prior to your arrival. With the Atlantic on one side and over 200 fresh water lochs on the other, you are always close to water. Ideal for a spot of fishing or just following the old peat tracks into the hills, Drumbeg is the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of life, recharge your batteries and get an idea of what it’s like to live in the least populated place in Europe. Surrounded by history, geology and scenery, and if you’re lucky the northern lights, enjoy the best of rural life with all mod cons.
  • Great wee place to stay. Marianne and neil was Very friendly and helpful. Will definitly stay again.

    Ian2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, surrounded by a wonderful area and location. Very nice people, helpul with tips what you can do in the area. Quite relaxing, in the company of some nice animal. Realy enjoyed my stay. Thank you!

    Simone2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • Does what it says on the tin. Spent 5 nights here on a work trip and all good. Simple room, as stated, but a good place to put the head down at the end of a day. Conservatory for exclusive guest use and supplies for a quick breakfast provided.

    Sam2020-01-21T00:00:00Z

    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.
    At Cathair Dhubh Estate the views are simply amazing! Bring your binoculars and you could be watching whales, basking sharks, porpoises and dolphins all from your window! Thistle cottage is a cosy semi-detached property looking west over the Atlantic ocean, enabling you to enjoy glorious sunsets as you relax after a hard day's hiking in the hills or a an afternoon spent frolicking on the nearby beaches. The cottage has 2 bedrooms; a double bedroom and a twin bedroom. It has a good sized family bathroom. There is a fully-fitted kitchen, incorporating an oven, hob and microwave, together with a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. The open plan lounge and dining area provide a comfy place to relax and is equipped with satellite TV and DVD player and CD radio. We do have Wifi but in keeping with the spirit of getting away from it all, it is quite basic and at times, elusive! There are patios leading to outside seating where you can experience the breathtaking views.
    Cathair Dhubh looks out over Achmelvich Bay and is set against an awesome backdrop of sandstone mountains, with names that trip from the tongue of any walker – Quinag, Suilven, Canisp. These ancient hills are formed from some of the oldest rocks in the world and create a timeless wilderness. In the hills around the estate, wildlife and birdlife abound. Black throated divers, otters, red deer, seals, porpoise and sea birds are but a few of our neighbours. With a touch of extra vigilance, you may even happen to spot minke and pilot whales, orca and sea eagles – binoculars are a must! The coastal path from the glorious sandy shores of Achmelvich passes through on its way to the abandoned millstones at the old water mill at Port Altan ‘Abradhan. Here you will find another beautiful, secluded cove to explore minutes from your front door. If you continue along the path, you'll see the iconic silhouette of Split Rock and then the creamy sands of Clachtoll beach, another Assynt treasure which also plays host to the annual Sand Sculpture competition - a brilliant day out for families. At the entrance to the estate, lies Loch an Ordain allegedly haunted by the mythical Black dog of Creag an Ordain – a two-headed, horned beast belching fire, with a human face and eyes that glow like burning peats – you might not find him listed in many of the nature books but he abounds in local legend!! For those anglers undeterred by the prospect of the Black Dog, the hills behind Loch an Ordain cradle a network of lochs and lochans teeming with brown trout. Some lochs further afield, even have migratory Sea Trout and Salmon passing through them – there is indeed a wealth of fishing opportunities. The picturesque fishing village of Lochinver is about four miles away and provides a good range of local amenities, including two grocery stores, a butcher, a post office, 24 hour filling station, a newsagents, a variety of cafes, coffee shops and restaurants, gift shops, a chandlery, health centre, ATM and Tourist Information Centre.
  • We had a wonderful stay in the thistle cottage. The house has a great view of the sea and the house has everything you need. The environment is incredibly beautiful and there are great opportunities for hiking and fishing. Nearby is Lochinver where there are shopping and a gas station. Kate is a wonderful hostess. We were warmly welcomed.

    Eliane2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • 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.

    Cal2019-07-27T00:00:00Z
  • Stunning location! Beautiful views, well equipped, warm and cosy. A really lovely base from which to explore this spectacular part of the world.

    Rebecca2019-06-15T00:00:00Z
  • This cottage is in a wonderful location with magical views and a fine array of animals outside the front door: highland cows, lambs, red deer and even saw porpoises. A great base to explore Assynt.

    Matilda2019-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing location, beautiful views, lovely walks, great paddle boarding location, nice wee cottage - loved it!

    Gilly2019-05-18T00:00:00Z
  • The property is very well equipped, warm and comfortable. Be prepared to enjoy the solitude, the sheep and perhaps deer close to the property. The autumnal light and changeable weather make the area a palette of delights for the artist or photographer. There are walks from the cottage door or just sit with a nip in the lounge and enjoy the ever changing view in comfort.

    John2018-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Would highly recommend Thistle college! The place very clean! We can't wait to come back and visit again with Alba my dog. Kate is such a welcoming host and has great attention to detail! Can't wait to come back!

    Mhairi2018-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • What a superb spot. I’ve sen these cottages from afar in the past and was delighted to be able to stay there. Don’t be put off by the traditional local architecture - public convenience chic - they’re lovely inside and the situation is frankly unbeatable worldwide. Unobtrusive service, yet instant response. There’s even WiFi, although be prepared to hear the cogs grinding at Highand speed. It rocks.

    The Byre is an old converted cow shed which has been in the family for 3 generations. recently newly renovated. its on a working croft and looks out to sea. There has been a new sun room added which has a log burining stove.
    This Byre has 40 years of highland history, it was once many moons ago a cow shed which was owned by my husbands granny and grandpa.
    There are lots of beautiful beaches and amazing scenery near by, also there is a small local shop which is situated within a campsite (3 miles away). The local village is 8 miles away, with many great places to eat and drink. The local people are extremely friendly and know how to make tourists feel welcome.
  • A very short but much enjoyed break at The Byre. We loved spending time in the snug watching the forever changing view in front of the log burner. An ideal base to explore a beautiful area.

    Robert2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place with great views, it was especially nice getting warmed up in front of the wood burner after being out in some nasty weather.

    Alex2020-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay in the Byre was just amazing! We had some stormy weather, and it was just perfectly cozy, sitting in front of the fire and literally seeing the eye of the storm gazing at you. Heavy weather just adds to the outstanding atmosphere the Byre creates while providing solid shelter and stunning views over the land and towards the ocean. But it was not only the place but the people that made us feel welcome and at home! Thank you again, Hilary and Mark, for being so hospitable and helping!

    Kerstin & Jan2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • I strongly recommend The Byre as a location for a long or short visit to this beautiful part of Scotland. The house is very well equipped and comfortable.

    Rachel2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • What a find! Lovely cosey home from home, my partner stayed here whilst he was working in the area and can’t rate the Byre enough. Clean, tidy, everything you’d need. The wood burner was a massive bonus too!! Thanks Hilary and Mark

    Lauren2020-01-09T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed the location and couldn't have asked for a better base for exploring Assynt and beyond. Thanks so much for sharing all of the great local points of interest/walking routes. We spent long evenings at the log burner and were very warm. Also enjoyed the views from the house once the cloud lifted. A perfect rural retreat, thanks.

    Emily2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Well, my wife and I cant thank Mark and Hilary enough for allowing us to stay in there beautiful Byre. It has all the amenities you need, great shower, oodlings of hot water, a warm comfy bed and views to stimulate your senses. Either simply weather watch or plan your next adventure, sipping a steaming cup of coffee, a nice glass of vino sitting in the cosy snug with the log burner fired up. Assynt is beautiful, whatever the weather. The Byre sits perfectly on a slope looking forward to the sea which changes hourly. It is approx 25 minutes from Lochinver so you cant just "pop to the corner shop". Totally ideal for us as we wanted the feeling of remoteness to escape the chaos of our daily city lives. We cant sing enough praises for Mark and Hilary and of course there beautiful Byre. If you read this tho and want book then I will please ask kindly that you save some time for us to return. Cheers for making our Wedding Anniversary so perfect. See you again soon. Nick & Janice

  • We loved Helen’s place! Communication was great and welcoming from the beginning and she offered many helpful suggestions. We arrived at night and were so happy to climb into such a comfortable bed. We appreciated all the nice touches like the beautiful hand soap. Little did we know the view that would greet us in the morning! Helen and her husband were away but their very kind and welcoming adult son Jack brought us the most incredible breakfast, including eggs from their chickens. Then we accompanied him while he fed and watered all the sweet animals and told us about croft life. We especially loved Polly, one of the cows. Thankfully we had brought our muck boots but we were offered wellies, as it was quite muddy. They were also helpful to keep us dry just down a tiny hill to the gorgeous beach. We rinsed boots off back at the house. We can’t recommend Helen’s place highly enough and only wished we had stayed longer - just go - you will love it.

The place is located close to lots of walks, and there are a couple of books there with walk descriptions if you come unprepared.

    Anna2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Absolutely stunning chalet in an idyllic location. The views are breathtaking. The chalet is immaculate and it has everything you need. The wood burning stove is amazing after a day of exploring! We spotted 2 otters from the window! We will 100% be back to stay. We recommend a visit to Sango Sands and Auchmelvich Beach. Beautiful white sand and blue seas. Thanks again.

    Charlie2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • 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...

  • Marianne's farm is a real farm, in an authentic place overlooking a pretty little lake. Marianne is very welcoming, the room and the bathroom are comfortable. We dined while chatting with her son, and the next day Marianne kindly showed me her farm, and her many animals - shetland sheep, goats, chickens, dogs and cats - a real moment of happiness at a very reasonable rate. No doubt I have my favorite experiences in the highlands! Thank you

    Arie2019-10-19T00:00:00Z

  • The house was wonderfully equipped for all of our needs. It has beautiful views down to the loch. We stayed three nights and were sad to leave. Billy is a great host and answered all of my questions quickly. We were closely situated to some great hiking for which we took full advantage. Lochinver Pie Shop was amazing if you’re looking for good meat or sweet pies. I highly recommend this cottage if you want to enjoy the Highlands.

  • Speechless or should we say stuck for words to write - such amazing hosts, such an amazing place - two nights of hot tub heaven and then a cosy nights sleep with the wood burner crackling - I almost wrote a poem! We will be back in October.

  • Loved this place. Very well done out, great kitchen. Lovely walks, hot tub was great & fab location to explore the Scottish Highlands.

    Jeff2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was absolutely perfect in every way. The shepherd’s hut is located over a loch with outstanding views, and the starry sky at night whilst in the hot tub is just magical. The shepherd’s hut has been finished to the highest standard and there are so many lovely touches that make it the perfect, cosy nest. We got engaged over New Year’s Eve and it couldn’t have been a more romantic setting! Thank you so much as well for the lovely bottle of champagne. Our dog Roo loved it too, and the location was perfect for exploring all the breathtaking scenery. We will be back! Karina & Tim x

    Karina2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • The Shepherd Hut is an idyllic place to stay while touring the Highlands. Spectacular views and the hut is kitted out with everything you could need, completely modern with a great rainfall shower. Then of course there is the wood-fired hot tub. Despite it being 2 degrees outside, we fired up the hot tub on all four nights and spent hours star gazing, sipping on prosecco. Amazing! Hosts Jacqui and Jason are friendly and on hand if you need anything, and have great tips on places to visit. Can not recommend enough.

    Traditional stone cottage on the coast 8 miles from Lochinver, with views of sea and hill, renovated to a high standard with underfloor heating and a modern well-equipped kitchen and bathroom. A peaceful hideaway for 2 people on a working croft.
    Beyond the end of the road, with views across Clashnessie Bay to the spectacular Sutherland hills of Quinag, Ben Stack, Arkle and Foinaven, you will find Laid Bothy. It is a traditional single storey stone cottage, renovated sympathetically and to a high standard. The rooms are warm and cosy, with underfloor heating under natural slate tiles. Walls are natural stone and well-insulated wood panelling. There is a well-equipped modern kitchen off the cosy living room, a high-spec. shower room, and a bedroom with a king-size double bed. There is also a large entrance hall with plenty of space for boots and coats, and a concealed washing machine. The Bothy is ideal for individuals or couples, with the bed normally set up as a king-size double, although it can be separated into two singles. There is free wifi. There is also a television which receives Freesat channels. The house is attached to a byre on one side and is set on a working croft, with rare breed Hebridean sheep, pigs and hens, and Highland cattle on the neighbouring croft. Produce from the croft may be available to purchase, depending on the time of year you visit. Laid Bothy provides a peaceful escape from the pace of modern living, without compromising on comfort and is an ideal base for exploring the magical landscape of Assynt and the Northwest Highlands.
    Clashnessie Bay, with its large sweep of sand and gently sloping beach, is a short walk away (1 km round the coast or 1.5km along the road) and has a car park if you want to transport equipment there. There is also a small stony beach at the bottom of our croft where we launch our kayaks. The main beach is very safe, although we recommend wetsuits if you are going to be in the water for long! There are other excellent beaches nearby, at Clachtoll and Achmelvich, walks to suit all ages and levels, from the All Abilities Path near Loch Assynt, to the Munros of Ben More Assynt and Conival, not forgetting iconic Suilven, Quinag, which you can see from the Bothy, and the other beautiful hills of the Northwest Geopark. This is a mecca for geologists, with a visitor centre at Knockan Crag and a cafe and exhibition at Rockstop in Unapool. Those interested in historic buildings can visit the ruins of Calda House and Ardvreck Castle near Loch Assynt, the old kirk at Inchnadampf and the newly excavated broch at Clachtoll. You can go on boat trips from Lochinver and Kylesku or visit Handa Island, an RSPB reserve where puffins, guillemots, razorbills, fulmars and kittiwakes nest in the cliffs, not forgetting the skuas who may dive bomb you as you walk across the island! There are small but well-stocked licensed grocery shops in Clachtoll, Drumbeg and Lochinver and a Tesco in Ullapool. Drumbeg Stores provides a delivery service for advance orders. Lochinver is also famous for its pottery, where you can see articles being hand-painted, and its pie shop, and there are many places to eat there at all price levels, including a Michelin-starred restaurant.
  • Fantastic spot in an absolutely beautiful spot. Has a really nice cosy cottage feel to it, and nice and warm, especially at this time of the year. My girlfriend and I loved the long weekend spent at this Airbnb.

    Shaun2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay. The view from the cottage is beautiful and there are lots of lovely local walks. The cottage was really well equipped and we had everything we needed!

    Alice2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Laid Bothy. The place was sparking clean and cosy. Vanessa and David provided detailed descriptions of lovely local walks and were very happy to answer any questions we had. I would definitely recommend this place if you want to get away from it all and take in the beautiful Scottish scenery.

    Jennifer2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • A remote and wonderful location. This is a very comfortable place to stay and is highly recommended. Just make sure to bring enough food for your intended stay.

    Michael2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Spectacular location overlooking the bay. A gorgeous stone bothy which has been beautifully decorated. A very special place. Make sure you stock up on provisions for your stay as it’s quite a long drive to the nearest shops.

    Hilary2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • The Laid Bothy is beautifully situated with great views. It's just nice to stay here! It is perfectly decorated, you can start cooking and catering right away, all super practical with fully equipped kitchen, here Vanessa thought of everything. The living room invites you to read and you can also see what happens outside weather wise. You can also start right from the house, otherwise the surrounding area offers very good hiking possibilities. We used several suggestions from Vanessa, all great. The washing machine was also briefly in use. We had changeable rainy weather and felt very well there. We would go back anytime. Also, the larger house above is beautiful!

    Ulrike2019-09-03T00:00:00Z
  • Idyllic stay This is a beautiful little Bothy, tastefully and comfortably converted to all modern needs and with everything you could need (even a knife sharpener which many places could add to their ‘must-have lists’). The location is sublime - with lovely views across Clashnessie Bay and to the mountains beyond and North. It is as the end of a little road, so completely peaceful. A wonderful place to escape to is this stunning part of the world. Vanessa was swift and clear with all communication and welcomed us with a tour of the bothy and plenty local advice. Definitely recommend.

    Westhaven is situated, only a few meters stroll from a pristine white sandy beach, with unrestricted glorious views over the stunning bay of Clachtoll and out across the wild Atlantic Ocean. This dog friendly, bright and warm 3 bedroomed home has all the amenities to enable you to stay in luxurious comfort. Its spacious kitchen is perfect for large family meals before relaxing in the snug or sitting room to be mesmerized by the magnificent ocean views.
    Westhaven faces west over the south end of Bay of Clachtoll, The bay has a truly glorious beach of white sand lapped by idyllic turquoise water. From the headlands either side of the beach you gain stunning mountain views to the south. The northern half of the bay contrasts with 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, and 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. 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. A short walk to the north of Clachtoll bay is, the Bay of Stoer, with its beautifully polished stones and overlooking the bay you will find the Clachtoll Broch the remains of a spectacular iron age settlement. Westhaven is in an area that has some of the very best coastal and inland walks in Scotland with breathtaking views and stunning variety. Towering mountains, jagged cliffs and secluded beaches all surrounded by the ever present, awe inspiring, power of the changing ocean.

  • Amazing location with breathtaking view. We arrived there at night and it was a bit difficult to find the place since it was very dark outside but Karen’s guidance made it easier for us. The pods are very well equipped, with dishwasher, fridge, good speed WiFi and everything you need for a perfect, comfortable stay. Even though we visited in winter time, it was nice and warm. We even had to turn the heating down a bit. As a recommendation to future guests, it s helpful to get plenty of provisions for your entire stay ( no shops or restaurants around). When it comes to hospitality, Karen was an amazing host and our communication with her was spotless. We spent our Christmas there and really felt at home. Highly recommended as it s an unique experience! Thank you very much again for everything, Karen!

    Florin2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • The pod is beautiful, warm and very cosy. If you have been out in harsh weather it is lovely to return to and warm up watching the weather out the doors. In the morning you can sit and watch the sun rise. There is an enormous amount to explore right on your door step. Try the jammery, 10 minute walk. Highly recommended.

    This modern and comfortable chalet is in the North West Highland village of Achiltibuie. With its large picture windows and decked terrace it is a perfect spot to relax and unwind. The views over the Summer Isles and the mountains are stunning as are the dramatic sunsets and starry night skies. There is a bright and airy open plan living area, two bedrooms a shower room and of course wi-fi. The perfect base for exploring, walking, climbing, kayaking, fishing and so much more.
    The local crofting and fishing community has a rich history and was a gaelic speaking area until recent times. It is now a Scottish Wildlife Trust Reserve, ideal for hill walkers and nature lovers. The chalet is in easy walking distance of The Piping School Café, Local Artists Gallery, Community Hall and the Summer Isles Hotel.
  • The cabin is cosy and comfortable and the location is hard to beat. Una is a great host and was helpful with local knowledge including the visit at the village hall by the fish van! The summer isles hotel is excellent for fine dining or a bar meal and the Am Fuaran Bar at Althandu is much better than either the outside or the inside decor suggests and definitely worth a visit. Brilliant seafood platter. Wherever you eat, the seafood is fresh and local.

    Ben2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 3 nights at Una's place. The location is absolutely stunning (can't beat those views!). The accommodation was also super cosy for that time of year. Una was very responsive and accommodating. We would definitely recommend for anybody in search of a special place to stay in that area.

    Isabelle2019-10-19T00:00:00Z

We did walks nearby (saw ptarmigan), took our kayaks out on a nearby loch, and saw deer both in the area and also just beneath the chalet on the edge of the loch. The chalet was the perfect base. Would very highly recommend!

The cottage itself is cosy (especially with the fire going!) yet more spacious than I expected, and really well set up. Everything we needed was there - from wood and kindling for the fire to kitchen supplies and books to read. And incredibly comfy sofas! Iain was absolutely delightful and gave us some great tips for local places to visit. All in all I would highly recommend and will definitely go back if I have the chance! Thanks Iain!

  • Top end, stylish cottage in a beautiful location. It feels very homely and somewhere you can’t wait to get back to after a day of exploring the nearby beaches and hills.

    Olly2020-03-03T00:00:00Z
  • We spent a very relaxing few days at the cottage. It was lovely and warm despite the blizzards outside... and very well equipped. Would love to come back.

    Tim2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • So warm and cosy in an incredible, beautiful and wild place.

    Juliet2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • Raven Cottage was so far the best stay me and my boyfriend had since we started traveing together. It was more beautiful than I imagined it to be. It was cozy, clean, quiet and you really have everthing you need. And I mean literally everything. Chloe has a wonderful taste and made sure that there is nothing missing. If we come back to this area we will definitely come back when we are around this area!

    Dezire2020-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • We absolutely loved our stay at Raven Cottage. It was so cosy, clean and beautifully decorated. The location was perfect we loved our daily walk to the beach with our dog. Can’t wait to come back!

    Sophie Jane2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great weekend at Raven cottage. It has everything you need including a well stocked kitchen and cosy living room. The location is 5 minutes walk from the beach and is a fantastic setting. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

    Jamie2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderful time at Raven Cottage. Chloe has amazing taste in interiors and has really made the space a home from home, with everything you might need in the kitchen, beautifully fluffy towels and linens and loads of books and games to keep you entertained in front of the fire. The area is outstandingly beautiful and we can’t wait to visit again in the summer.

  • Magic place to stay, in a beautiful setting!

  • Ian's place is by the remote village of Achiltibuie but thanks to spot on directions is easy to find day or night. I had a small room with everything I needed, close to the bathroom and shower, which as a walker is appreciated! The area is great for walking and exploring so if that is your thing I think you will like it here. I walked around Stac Pollaidh one of the days which is very easy to get to by car. Other destinations are close by such as the beautiful beach at Achmelvich. One or two things deserve a special mention. I booked at short notice and Ian and Marie Claire's hospitality was second to none. I was provided with an excellent breakfast each day, included in the price of booking, and I was able to join them to see in the New Year, which was appreciated. Another thing I would like to note is that, leaving in a bit of a rush, I forgot to bring my maps - Ian graciously provided his for me to use for the duration of my stay. Ian was more than happy to tell me a bit about the local area which I loved hearing about because I think it's important to know a little bit at least about where you're staying. The pub a couple of miles down the road was able to accommodate me for a really lovely meal at very short notice on New Years' Eve - which was also very much appreciated. A wonderful part of the world to visit and very nice hosts. Thank you Ian.

    Ian2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • I chose this place on relatively short-term for some nights for different reasons, one of them being the western islands' Puffins. Seek for calm and trust and goodwill? Searching for a BnB, done the old way? Need a break from drive-thru tourism? Look no further, here you will find it! Won't find any Puffins though, I grant you that. Ian has not only his striking hospitality to offer, but a load of Scottish lore and bold conversation, too. In at least five different languages. You'll also get a distinct No on "the keys please!", "water-drop the whiskey?" and "any Puffins on Handa?". Good and steady base for trips to the Ullapool-, west- and northcoast areas. Beautiful view on the "Summer"-Isles and beyond. Worthwhile for getting a taste of Scottish Highland remoteness. Apt to intensify a lasting longing for Puffins.

    Johannes2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Had a very enjoyable four-day stay with Ian. There's a lot to see in the area but perhaps the best thing is the total change in pace and approach to life. Ian was a great host - very informal, interesting and entertaining, knowledgeable about all sorts of topics and excellent on local advice. You'll remember your stay here.

    John2019-08-08T00:00:00Z
  • It's a great place to stay. The landscape, the house and Ian are unique!

    Ute2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing area, so beautiful ! ... and great house with a very friendly and interesting host. I will come back the day I travel back to Scotland !

    Pierre2019-07-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, friendly, relaxed atmosphere. As stated in the listing, this is not a typical B&B - rather a room in a private house. Informal, relaxed, friendly. Ian is a bit of a raconteur, full of interesting stories and perspectives on life now and in eariler times in Achiltibuie and more generally Scotland. Definitely worth a return visit.

    Jerry2019-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • Great room in one of the most beautiful towns I have ever seen. Ian was very helpful and breakfast was a nice touch. Highly recommended.

    The Hideaway with private outdoor hot tub and spectacular view is a luxurious cosy cabin overlooking the bay of Lochinver and the Assynt mountains. The property is open plan and features a superking size bed, high quality armchairs, a sleek kitchen and a flat screen tv. From the main living area, french doors lead to a generously sized balcony featuring a BBQ, wood burning stove, seating and stunning sea and mountain views.
    Baddidarroch is a quiet area on the outskirts of Lochinver, with beautiful views across the bay to the mountains beyond, and within walking distance of local amenities.
  • The Hideaway is a great little hidden gem. We didn’t get to use the patio area because of the weather but if the weather was good it would be great to sit out in the evening and enjoy the view. Everything was spotlessly clean and we had very good communication with Jason. We did use the hot tub despite the wind and rain which was great. Disappointed that no restaurants open or take away options so had to get food from the spar. But I guess it’s the time of year.

    Liz2020-02-21T00:00:00Z
  • An extra special hideaway in a beautiful location!

    Roisin2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • A perfect and peaceful getaway for me and my partner. Lovely personal touches and an overall amazingly refurbished tiny home. The hot tub was the highlight for us, with a beautiful view across the bay. Our little cat loves to come on our adventures with us and he loved exploring the surrounding area. I’d recommend the Hideaway to anybody and really look forward to coming back!

    Kitti2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place, we loved every minute of it. Hot tub was amazing with beautiful veiws. And our Dog Diesel enjoyed it aswell. Will Definitely be back. Carla

    Carla2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • An immaculately clean place with outstanding views from the hot tub and a very warm and welcoming cabin. Definitely coming back again!

    Edward2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Jason’s Hideaway in Lochinver was everything we had hoped for and more. We could not fault this little haven of tranquility! Although we didn’t have much sunshine this weekend to go with it, the hot tub was a dream and a great way to end the day. The cabin was immaculate and well equipped with everything you could need - we were worried we hadn’t brought enough stuff with us for the weekend but there was no need to worry as we had everything there. The fire was a great addition as well, especially as we had a chillier evening. All in all a fabulous getaway and we will definitely be back - 10/10.

    Monica2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • Hideaway has every convenience. Beautifully built, warm and clean. Jason greeted us on arrival and was very helpful. 5 star accommodation

    Sitting in a small friendly village is our lovingly recycled and upcycled holiday home with everything you need. Surrounded by many beautiful beaches - including Sandwood Bay - and for those looking for something more active, there are some amazing mountains to climb or cycle. We're also just a few miles off the North Coast 500 route. Enjoy the sunsets in the summer with a glass of wine outside. Or sit by the cosy log burning stove in the winter with a wee whisky.
    Indoors accommodates 4 people comfortably, and outdoors there is a large decking area with table and seats. Another seating area has an outdoor fire.
    Kinlochbervie is a small spread out village with a working harbour. The harbour and boats can be seen from the bedroom window. There is one hotel in the village and another just before - The Old School House - which we recommend. There is also a SPAR shop and general store and a small gift shop.
  • Beautiful views and a great location for walks. The house was perfect for cosy evenings in front of the fire

    Corinne2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • This is a lovely little house which comes highly appointed with everything you could ever need. Its spotlessly clean. the beds are comfortable and the house is warm whatever the weather. This was our second visit this year and we will certainly be back in 2020!

    Maureen2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Great house in a great location. The house has everything you need. Great beaches on the doorstep

    Stephen2019-09-28T00:00:00Z
  • Thistle Dae is a cosy, comfortable base for exploring the area, with everything you could need - I’d happily have moved in permanently! Bryan and Ann are very easy to communicate with. I wish we’d had the weather to enjoy your outside decking area, but it was not to be. Kinlochbervie itself was more industrial than I expected, but the surrounding countryside and views are stunning. As others have said, stick to Bryan and Ann’s recommendations, I can’t fault The Old School House at all, but cannot comment on the Kinlochbervie Hotel because, in spite of all the signs, they weren’t serving food of any kind. Thanks for a great stay.

    Jennifer2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Thistle Dae; it’s cosy and comfortable, there’s plenty of space and it’s well equipped for cooking. We loved the log burner! It was very quiet and peaceful. Lochinbervie might not be the most picturesque of harbour villages, but has its rugged charms and is a great base for exploring the stunning beauty of the areas on the north coast. Ann & Bryan have written recommendations of places to eat nearby - stick to them and avoid the Kinlochbervie hotel in the village. It’s good for a pint, but the food was very bland. The Larder in Lochinver was a favourite; wonderful pies of all sorts! We’d be very happy to return to Thistle Dae in the future.

    Maria2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 3 days at Thistle dae: the house is large and very comfortable, ideally located for visiting Sandwood Bay, Durness, Oldshoremore ... There is a Spar all next door. The stove is a plus when you want to dry laundry.

    Patricia2019-08-28T00:00:00Z
  • Nice spot that offers everything you need even for rainy days.

    Elisabeth2019-08-10T00:00:00Z
  • A well equipped 2 bed house with everything you could need. In the village of Kinlochbervie. Handy for local beaches. Very quiet and peaceful. A great place to recharge your batteries.

    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.
    We have a lovely spacious living/dining area on the upper floor which opens out onto a small lit balcony.
    Peaceful area close to Inverkirkaig Bay. Achins bookshop is not far and also the Kirkaig Falls.
  • This is a very thoughtfully constructed lodge which is well appointed warm and cosy. It is situated in an excellent location betwixt mountains and sea. The surrounding area of mountains and coast is unsurpassed on this unique island of ours.😊😊 exceptional!

    Barry2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • We loved staying at the lodge. It is very homely and a minute walk from the bay. Both in rain and sunshine it was wonderful to stay here and very well equipped! I cannot recommend this place enough!

    Henrica2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • 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

    Nessie2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • This is a peaceful and stylish cabin alongside a quiet bay. It is clean and comfortable, with everything provided that anyone would need in this remote location. Elaine is welcoming and has created a little oasis to enjoy this lovely part of the world.

    Rachel2019-06-01T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay here - such lovely views of the bay from the lodge. Elaine was lovely and made us feel very welcome. Thank you for having us

    Islay2019-03-23T00:00:00Z
  • This was such a wonderful place to stay on the northwest coast! It was clean and spacious and a great value for the space. It was conveniently located close to the town of Lochinver which had restaurants and such. Elaine was super nice and a lovely host. I would definitely stay here again.
