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.

                                                              Our 8th holiday in Achiltibuie, first in Williams Cottage but certainly not the last. Excellent set back position affording elevated views over the Summer Isles with all the home comforts you could wish for in an attractive and well furnished cottage. We will be more than happy to return again next year!

                                                              Fabulous week in The Highlands

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              Meall Dubh is a cosy,warm, comfortable cottage in a fantasic location. The two woodburning stoves are very effective and welcoming and the cottage is well furnished with everything you need for an enjoyable holiday.The property was very clean and there were some nice additional touches eg. the fires were laid, ready to light when we arrived. Customer service was excellent with lots of helpful suggestions for local walks etc. We mainly ate at the cottage but we enjoyed an excellent lunch at The Kyelescu Hotel and we also had a couple of good meals at The Bunkhouse in Lochinver. I would definitely reccomend this property to friends and relatives - in fact I have already done so!
