Fabulous house with stunning views and easy access to arguably the most picturesque beach on the planet - Achmelvich.

“Perfect base for exploring beautiful Assynt”
Reviewed 24 April 2017 for a stay in April 2017

Waterloo House was a perfect base for our family holiday. The location is breathtaking - the view over Lochinver to Suilven changes by the minute, we spent a fair amount of time just gazing out of the window in awe of our surroundings. The house has everything you could possibly need. We have two teenagers - they loved the hot tub, giant tv, Netflix(!); the kitchen has everything you could need - proper big pots and decent knives (so often missing in rented houses!). The house was immaculate when we arrived.

Lochinver is a great base for a Highland holiday. The village has a vibrant community feel (not all Highland villages do sadly); everyone we met was welcoming and friendly. Local shops great - no need to drive up with a boot full of provisions. Restaurants without exception excellent, whether you want a pie at the Lochinver Larder or a michelin star meal at the Albannach. Its all there and within easy walking distance. We ate local langoustines almost every night, the Spar has great selection of locally brewed ales, we were in heaven.

You can also find some great walking routes without getting in your car - 30 mins bracing walk with fantastic views along heather track behind house to Achmelvich; or follow the rapids up the River Inver. Kirkaig Falls, Stoerr lighthouse and dramatic sea cliffs also within short drive from home. We had our bikes and had a couple of great days cycling out to Secret Tea Garden for cake at Drumbeg, road south to Inverpolly is also fantastic cycling route (stop for cake at the Achin bookshop) (We like cake stops.) We hiked up Cansip which is a great climb if Suilvan seems a bit too ambitious and of course the views of Suilven are much better from its neighbour!

We stayed for two weeks which meant that if we were a bit tired out or the weather was bad (only two days were really bad) we were happy to stay at home lounging around. Waterloo House was such a beautiful light airy space to share on these days playing board games, reading, writing. It was a really special time together - you couldn't fail to have a brilliant time in this magical corner of the world.

“Lovely house, glorious views, fabulous hot tub!”
Reviewed 6 April 2017 for a stay in March 2017

This house is really lovely , very clean , very spacious but the most important things are the superb views and the brilliant hot tub...perfect after a day in the hills.

From the house we walked to Achmelvic beach, and into Loch Inver to do the River Inver loop.

There are so many hills to climb in this area we will definitely be back and would stay at this house again.

In the village we tried the pie shop, bunkhouse and peets, all good.

Also went up to Kylesku, the hotel was really nice, good food and gin!

Ben, owner, was very friendly via email. We will visit again.

We had a fabulous break at Waterloo House. The accomodation is a perfect home away from home. The view is amazing and one I could never tire of.
Lochinver and the surrounding area has so much to offer. Our group enjoyed every minute, so much that we have already booked to return to Waterloo House next year!

“Stunning house!”
Reviewed 27 December 2016 for a stay in December 2016

We had a wonderful weeks stay in early December and luckily had some mild and dry weather. The area is beautiful but as expected very quiet at this time of year. The house is probably the nicest we have ever stayed in, it is equipped and furnished to a very high standard and is spotlesley clean. The views over the harbour are stunning and on 2 mornings we even had deer in the garden. Overall a lovely relaxing break and we can't wait to return, Thanks

“Beautiful house in a beautiful setting”
Reviewed 21 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

We just finished a lovely week at Waterloo House. On our arrival the house was cleaned to a very high standard and there were lots of little unexpected extras that gave the house a very luxurious feeling. The kitchen was well equipped for cooking every night. The sofa was extremely comfortable for relaxing in the evening. There was a comfortable feeling throughout and the house was beautifully decorated reflecting the surrounding area. In the surrounding area there are lots of walks for all abilities with spectacular views. Even in poor weather conditions the walks are enjoyable and knowing you have such a comfy home with a hot tub waiting for you makes them all the more enjoyable. From the set up we felt that we could make Waterloo House our home for the week. Although the week was far too short to explore all the surroundings and try every flavour of pie at the Lochinver Larder we might have to plan another stay! Thank you Ben.
