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.

It is in a great location overlooking the beach on this beautiful Scottich coastline. The house has everything that you could wish for and is just like a home from home. Highly recommended.

The house met our needs perfectly with enough bathrooms, a washing machine and a kitchen equipped for enthusiastic cooks! The house was very clean when we arrived and everything worked well. The sitting room was comfortable and we watched the olympics in the evening. There is plenty of outside space for parking and sitting outside. There is a beautiful beach a few minutes walk away, and even a small shop open in the summer within walking distance. The house is on a winding single track road about 7 miles from Lochinver. There are other houses close by and scattered along the road so it doesn't feel isolated, but you leave these behind in moments when you start walking. We went to the area mainly for the walking but one of our group took a mountain bike and we loved the swimming and fishing. We saw otters on our fist walk, and lots of seals.

The landscape is breath taking and driving through it it's a joy. The properly has everything you need and very good layout to enjoy amazing views of the Summer Isles from sun garden and the two bedrooms upstairs. House was immaculate and plenty of space so you will feel like home. Kitchen is great, big with space to socialise and everything you need in it. If you get good weather the garden is lovely to sit and enjoy the views, we also saw a couple of deers that came back for a couple of nights so it was fantastic. The sunsets are beautiful and we spent hours watching them- so peaceful The location of the property is very good as a seafood restaurant (which we visit a couple of times, delicious fresh seafood and lovely atmosphere) is just round the corner. Little shop also 5 minutes which has a website so you can have a look what they sell in there. Also a hotel pub/restaurant. The area is great to visit lovely sandy beaches, mounting walks, bike ride, etc... Also if you feel like exploring a bit further a drive to Durness will allow you to get a good idea of the further north of Scotland. So if you looking for a relaxing break but more importantly a great place to switch off and enjoy nature, You won't be disappointed. Thank you Sarah and John, we had a great week.
