Sitting on top of a pretty hill, this charming white Highland home has lovely open views and comes with a gentle pace of life, located in the small, friendly community of Elphin between Ullapool and the fishing port of Lochinver in the Scottish Highlands. View Hill is a warm deceptively spacious cottage and ideal for a family or group of friends who want a ‘get away from it all location’ amongst fabulous scenery. From your cottage you will see sheep and donkeys grazing and the area is one of natural unspoilt beauty. The accommodation is characterful and has been well modernised with a large kitchen and adjoining utility room. Breakfast can easily be enjoyed at the kitchen table with yet another view. Touches of tartan, sheepskin throws and red deer antlers found on the hill make the sit...Sitting on top of a pretty hill, this charming white Highland home has lovely open views and comes with a gentle pace of life, located in the small, friendly community of Elphin between Ullapool and the fishing port of Lochinver in the Scottish Highlands. View Hill is a warm deceptively spacious cottage and ideal for a family or group of friends who want a ‘get away from it all location’ amongst fabulous scenery. From your cottage you will see sheep and donkeys grazing and the area is one of natural unspoilt beauty. The accommodation is characterful and has been well modernised with a large kitchen and adjoining utility room. Breakfast can easily be enjoyed at the kitchen table with yet another view. Touches of tartan, sheepskin throws and red deer antlers found on the hill make the sitting room cosy while the sun porch provides plenty of opportunity for bird watching or a relaxing place to read. Not only is the dining room a place to dine but the table is large enough to have a game of table tennis, why not challenge the family to a competition? Completing the accommodation are three bedrooms, a convenient ground floor double, a single and large double room with a single bed upstairs, the bathroom is also on this floor. Fenced lawned garden surrounds the cottage making it a wonderful play area for children and there is ample parking for three cars. Known for hill walking you couldn't be better situated for climbing and Munro bagging, explore Quinag, Suilven, Canisp, Conival and Ben More Assynt, Arkle and Foinaven. Or try salmon and trout fishing nearby, permits can be bought locally; this highland home has something to please everyone. Spot a buzzard or eagle, build a sandcastle, pat a Highland cow (carefully), catch a waterfall or try your hand at fishing. Whatever you do you'll be sure to have an amazing holiday in an amazing place!More

Amazing house for our 2 week holiday. The house contained everything we needed and the location is amazing. However we were unable to regulate the heating ourselves (thermostat) locked in cupboard. However an electric fire and heaters were available.More

Glad you found everything you needed in your holiday home. The housekeeper has a key to the cupboard and I could have arranged to change the heating had I known about it while you were there, however the alternative heating seems to have done the...More
