Things to do

-Hiking: The walking trails in Achilitibuie are a real treat. The landscape offers both glorious coastline and typical Highland scenery of glens and mountains. The trails are suited to varying degrees of fitness and endurance so visitors should pick the appropriate routes. There are cycling routes for holidaymakers who prefer two wheels to Shanks’s Pony!

-Climbing: The excellent and often times challenging climbing is one of the most popular reasons people book holiday cottages in Achilitibuie. The cliffs at Reiff are well known by climbers all over and are one of the major attractions of the location, while others are drawn to the array of non-tidal sandstone sea cliffs in the area.

-Fishing: Known to be an area abundant in marine life, Achilitibuie draws in quite a crowd with sea, loch and river fishing available. Keen anglers are welcome on shore, on piers and off the rocks, but should pay attention to any permits or licences required to fish the burns and lochs.

-Sightseeing: The Summer Isles lie just offshore and many visitors in Achilitibuie holiday homes find their way to the picturesque locations. Of the some 20 islands, one can be reached by walking across the beach at low tide while others need a boat trip. They are especially good for wildlife viewing as well as near deserted beaches. There is a tour company offering a boat tour around all the islands during the summer season and intrepid holidaymakers can also explore the islands' coastlines with their many rock formations, caves and inlets by canoe or kayak.

-Day trips: Although the small crofting and fishing community is remote, there are plenty of attractions within day trip reach of holiday chalets in Achilitibuie. The North West Highlands Geopark has plenty of natural attractions and two fishing ports are close by – Lochinver to the north and Ullapool to the south. From Ullapool a trip to Stornoway in the Outer Hebrides can be made within a day. Other trips can include the Assynt Bone Caves, Eas a' Chual Aluinn (Britain's highest waterfall) and Handa Island. Of course, the Highland scenery is spectacular whichever direction is taken.

Weather in Achilitibuie

Temperatures in Achilitibuie drop to an average of 3°C in the winter months, and rise to 22°C degrees in the summer. The North Atlantic Drift keeps some of the more wintry conditions at bay but the best time to book a holiday home in Achilitibuie depends on the hardiness of the travelling party. The area is spectacular whatever the season, but obviously outdoor activities will be heavily restricted in harsh winter periods.

Travel to Achilitibuie

Ullapool is the nearest town so it is best to follow main directions there and then follow local guides. It is possible to get a bus to Ullapool from Inverness, but frankly, a car is preferable. There are main roads to Ullapool from Inverness and Fort William, both of which have railway stations served by Edinburgh trains, and bus stations served by National Express Coaches. There’s also an airport at Inverness. If not using their own vehicle, visitors can arrange car hire in Inverness or Fort William.

Even after spending a great deal of time gazing at it on the internet, those pictures could not do it enough justice and couldn't portray the instant feeling of welcoming warmth that you feel the minute you step inside. We've just spent our family Christmas there and what an amazing Christmas it was! Arriving on the day Storm Barbara was hitting Britain with 90mph winds, in particular NW Scotland, we were a little anxious what we were heading to. All I can say is those fears were soon cast aside and being cosy and safe inside watching the storm howling around us just made the holiday more enjoyable. Nothing like lighting a log fire sat tucked up in a snug warm living room, leisurely playing games and watching the ever changing Scottish skies across Loch Ewe and its beautiful landscapes. The views from the large kitchen diner windows were just as captivating. It was hard to believe how windy it was outside as the house is so wind/soundproof and cosy. I say cosy but Shorecroft isn't small, the house is deceivingly big with so much cleverly designed space inside, plenty of space for our family of six adults and two dogs to spread out. It's a beautifully maintained home with attention to detail everywhere you look and all the facilities and comfort you could wish for and stunning views from every window. It’s not somewhere you want to leave in a hurry. Having to stay in during the storms was not a chore, it was a privilege. From the moment I booked the house, owner Hilary kept in touch and was on hand helping with any queries. When we arrived champagne and salmon was waiting in the fridge, a little touch of luxury much appreciated. Wendy the housekeeper is also a credit to Shorecroft being friendly and welcoming and nothing too much trouble. Wendy’s also very knowledgeable about the local area and wildlife; it was reassuring to know a local friendly face was to hand if needed. It was magical waking up at Shorecroft Christmas morning, making a dash to our 'own' beach wrapped up in PJ's, coats and Christmas hats for the obligatory family selfie then opening Santa's stockings in front of a crackling log fire! The whole area is beautiful, Mellon Udrigle is a stunning sandy beach, Gairloch, Red Point and Cove all picturesque, endless views everywhere you look even on the cloudiest winter days. Fire pit and bikes amazing! Cannot recommend Shorecroft enough and can't wait to return!

The house is spacious and sits in a tranquil setting just above the beach. It is exceptionally comfortable and warm, beautifully decorated and has a very well equipped kitchen. The house has a gorgeous view of Clashnessie Bay and the sandy beach is only a couple of minutes' walk away - our children spent many happy afternoons building sandcastles and playing games there. We also enjoyed all that the surrounding area had to offer including fabulous moorland walks, trips to the waterfall, fishing expeditions and even a boat trip to see the seals. We would highly recommend the house for families as it is the perfect base for a holiday.
