Lochinver, Caithness and Sutherland, Scottish Highlands, Scotland
Peacefully and privately situated on 110 acres of croft land yet only 1.5 miles from the fishing village of Lochinver and 2 miles from the beautiful white sandy beaches at Achmelvich, Torbreck Croft House is comfortable and well equipped, perfect for families, small groups or couples. . The croft is situated off of the single track B869, part of the NC500 Drumbeg loop.

The house has 3 bedrooms upstairs, 1 double, 1 large twin and 1 small twin. There is also a luxury shower room newly installed upstairs for 2017.

Interaction with guests
Torbreck Croft House sits peacefully back off the single track B869 road down it's own good track. The B869 is on the Drumbeg loop of the NC500.

There is lots to do! Visit the wonderful unspoilt white sandy beaches nearby. Achmelvich (2 miles), Clachtoll (4.5 miles) & Clashnessie (6.5 miles) are the closest but with some exploring you can find many more secluded gems. Travel a little further to Oldeshoremore and Sandwood Bay, both within an hours drive, or up to Balnakeil at Durness.

Walk along the coast or across the hills and moors, the choice of routes is endless and wherever you go there are stunning views of Assynt and you may not see another person all day. From the cottage, you can walk for miles across the croft and beyond.

Reviewed 4 weeks ago for a stay in June 2017

After six weeks of staying in holiday cottages in Scotland, Torbreck House was the stand out favourite. The owners have made it into a home from the oak furniture, the fully equiped kitchen, two classy bathrooms, good quality bed linen and cosy warmth throughout the whole house. The conservatory was a favourite sunny spot to retreat to with views to...

Arrival at Torbreck Croft House is a joy. The house is exactly as listed and matches all those photos you’ve looked at in advance. Sitting in a hollow of its own it is secluded and peaceful. But as you settle in you quickly realise the house offers so much more. Firstly the many beautiful paintings of Angus Macdonald on the...
