Holiday Rental House
Well placed to access the Coigach Geotrail and the spectacular hill walking around Assynt, with one of the best locations in the area, this spacious and modern property commands stunning panoramic sea and island views and is ideal for a large group or for semi-independent use by two families holidaying together. It has a very well equipped kitchen and large extremely comfortable living room with the gaze-compelling sea always in sight. Large sliding glass doors open out to a natural stone-clad patio area. It further enjoys a first floor sitting room and kitchen, also with large glass doors opening onto a balcony, again with the sea view, and boasts a garden which leads to heather-clad moorland and the coast beyond (200 yards). Just 3 miles from Achiltibuie, it lies on the Coigach Peninsula...Well placed to access the Coigach Geotrail and the spectacular hill walking around Assynt, with one of the best locations in the area, this spacious and modern property commands stunning panoramic sea and island views and is ideal for a large group or for semi-independent use by two families holidaying together.

The location is very isolated which is great. The views are outstanding and the weather and thus the light are always changing. There are plenty of walks on the doorstep and within 5 miles. There is a lovely sandy beach about 8 miles away. There...More

This is a fine property in a wonderful location, and we had a great stay. It's very flexible, with lounges upstairs and down, so two families could share and have some degree of separation if they wanted. Very dog-friendly, with no carpets to worry about....More

Good that the house worked well for you. We have moved away from an open fire for a variety of practical and energy-efficiency reasons. The Assynt hills are uniquely individual but well separated so covering them all from a single base takes time as you...More

Thanks. Conival seems to work very well for outdoor activities. The views are compelling in any weather. During the summer season there are more eating places open and a vibrant music scene both in Achiltibuie and Ullapool.

About the neighbourhood
Spectacular and accessible hills Ben More Coigach, Conival and Stac Polly with more memorable corbetts further North. Summer Isles dominate the seascape to the South West. Great food in restaurants and pubs around (see Achiltibuie Tourist Association website. Coastal walks from the house past the Youth Hostel or the more testing Postie's path for experienced scramblers from the house through to Ardmair near Ullapool. Secluded local beach or a few miles to spectacular Achnahaird beach.
Getting around
Although accessible by bus via Inverness and Ullapool, the area really requires a car.
