Overview

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday cottage in Achiltibiue - Tigh an Uillt

3 Bedroom, 2 bathroom cottage, sleeps 6, with stunning sea and island views

Tigh an Uillt enjoys wonderful uninterrupted views over the sea and the Summer Isles. 2 double bedrooms are upstairs together with a shower room and a further double bedroom is on the ground floor and leads into the second bathroom.

The good sized kitchen is very well equipped and has an oil fired rayburn which provides central heating to the house.

The sitting room has an open fire (coal is provided). There is also a TV with freeview and DVD player. The sun room/dining room with its wonderful views is the perfect place to gaze out over the islands and across to the mountains or to watch wildlife in the croft below. There is even a telescope.

The house is set amongst sea, islands, beaches, mountains and lochs in the recently designated National Geo park. In 2009 the area was used as a location for the film 'The Eagle'.

Enjoy the beach, the wildlife, go kayaking, fishing, cycling, walking, climb Stac Pollaidh, or sit in the garden and relax.

Dogs: Well behaved dogs are welcome but do remember that this is a crofting community and sheep run free everywhere. If you think there is any possibility of your dog getting on the furniture then please bring some covers to protect it. Water and food bowls in the cottage.

Shopping: The two village shops in Achiltibuie and Polbain are very well stocked but are both closed on Sundays. Either will provide supplies to await your arrival. There is a Tesco in Ullapool that is open 7 days a week (25 miles away). Ullapool has a good range of shops including a chemist and butcher. There are a number of very large supermarkets in Inverness (Tesco and Morrisons).

Exactly what it says on the tin !.

  • 5 of 5

After reading the description and then speaking to Sarah about the cottage and finally after spending an idyllic week there. We cannot recommend this cottage highly enough and had a perfect Hogmany in the Mellors home from home.

We would highly recommend this 5* cottage with breathtaking views to anyone who needs to re-charge their batteries.

Perfection!!

  • 5 of 5

We cannot praise this cottage enough it is perfection ! It is spotless and everything you could ask for away from home is available. We have stayed in many properties like this over the years but this one is top of the tree !!! The surroundings are breathtaking the wildlife too it was very hard to drag ourselves away.

I think I must add that the overwhelming feeling with this property is here is a home that a family love!! Thank you for letting us share it

A small slice of heaven!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived at the clean, tidy, warm and well maintained cottage on Saturday evening, to discover a breath taking view of the Summer Isles awaiting us. We flew to Scotland, therefore were unable to take any food with us – but the friendly local store owner does delivery if arranged in advance, so we organised that so we could eat over the weekend.

The owners of the house are very nice and did all they could to help us enjoy our stay - provided lots of information for us about things to do in the local area, as well as recommendations of where to eat – I can recommend the local hand-dived shellfish! Another thing to recommend is walking from the house to Polglass beach where we were lucky to see a basking shark – there’s a beautiful view from the top of the headland too, my camera got a great workout!

One thing that was really nice, the owner tried to call us at the house to make sure we had everything we needed. We weren't in for the phone call (we were out having a lovely lunch at “The Mission” in Lochinver), so instead sent me a text message – something that we got on a couple of occasions during the week, including asking if we’d seen the shark – a nice touch that made us feel very welcome. Customer service is something that many property owners seem to forget, so it’s worth noting when it’s as good as this – everything we could need was catered for (although the house could do with a new frying pan, the non-stick wasn't very non-sticky any more!) We found that many of the locals were very welcoming, and happy to stop and have a chat.

Other recommendations:

– on a nice sunny day, take the Summer Isles boat trip either on the Summer Queen from Ullapool, or the Isabella from Achiltibuie – neither are cheap but well worth the money.

- Take a walk to Inverkirkaig Falls. The last bit of the walk to the falls is a bit steep and slippery, but the view of the falls is worth it. On the way back pop into the bookshop.

- Take a walk around the Culag Community Wood in Lochinver. Afterwards, try the pies in the Bistro in Lochinver – very tasty (they deliver too!)

- From the house, walk to the youth hostel along the road, and then down to the beach. Impressive rocks, a nice beach for the kids to have a play, and lovely views.

There’s so much to do here, I could mention many, many more things to do, but in conclusion, the house is beautiful, the area is beautiful and we had an amazing time- we’ll certainly be staying again just as soon as we can!

Stunning house and area - wouldn't change a thing!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent 2 weeks here in early October. I can't praise the house or area highly enough. House is stunning and stylish yet very homely and feels like a home, not holiday cottage. Views from almost every room breathtaking. Very well equipped - gorgeous kitchen and cosy lounge also great having 2 bathrooms. As for the sunroom - many an hour was spent just overlooking the incredible scenery - 180 degree views.

Garden was a delight - our dog Gillon the black lab loved it - very well enclosed and lots of space for him to explore. Sitting in the garden with a cup of tea and a book overlooking the Summer Isles was heavenly.

Spent a few nights in the Summer Isles Hotel bar - very friendly and welcoming locals - a joy.

The area is incredible - walks from the doorstep are fabulous and a short drive away from some of the most stunning beaches in the UK. Particularly loved Achnahaird and Achmelvich beaches.

Strange as it sounds, a special mention must also go to the mixed salad bags from Achiltibiue Garden (available at local store) - the best salad I've ever had in my life - really!

This house and area are good for the soul - I returned home relaxed and invigorated and the feeling lingers on which says something about the effect this place has on you. We are already talking about going back next year.

Wonderful place - thank you to the owners for letting us share your beautiful home.
