Make a holiday cottage in Lochinver your home away from home

Lochinver holiday cottages are the perfect way to enjoy all the Highlands have to offer. This cosy coastal village in the Assynt district is actually the second-largest fishing port in Scotland. Visitors can enjoy a wide variety of local and nearby activities or just kick back and unwind from the everyday hustle and bustle. HomeAway holiday cottages in Lochinver display traditional whitewashed exteriors that conceal fully modern interiors. Accommodations sleep anywhere from 2 to 7 people, so it’s possible to travel with a group. Amenities can include linens, lawn toys, broadband or Wi-Fi and these charming properties can be found conveniently close to town, or further out for a more peaceful setting.

Things to do

-Beaches: Achmelvich Beach is an unexpected treat. This slice of heaven is a Caribbean-style beach with white sands and blue, albeit chilly, water. The beach can be reached via a single track road three miles north west from Lochinver. It’s a popular area for windsurfing, water-skiing, fishing and also hiking. If the family pet has been included in the party staying in a Lochinver holiday home, please note dogs are not allowed on Achmelvich beach.

-Sightseeing: The drive along Drumbeg Loop is known for its stunning views and hairpin turns. This single track road is to be savoured with plenty of stops to enjoy the sights, but not recommended if time is precious. Visitors report feeling on the edge of their seat, as oncoming traffic cannot be seen at times, and drivers may need to reverse so others can get by.

-Local culture: The fish market is a main attraction as fishing constitutes the major economic force in the area. Crews from Europe and the local area make this the one of the busiest harbours in Scotland. Visitors may be inspired to try their own luck in the many surrounding fishing spots.

-Natural attractions: Although it’s hard to miss, a trip to view Suilven is a must for all Lochinver holiday cottage guests. Described as the most interesting mountain in Scotland, it actually presents very different views from all angles. Although a few good feet away from qualifying as a Munroe (mountains over 3,000 feet), it is a challenging climb for anyone who wants to tackle it rather than just view its many faces.

-Day trips: Highland Stoneware is open for tours where visitors can see craftsmen create unique, hand-painted pottery pieces. The pottery dates back almost 30 years and even makes its own clay. There’s a shop to browse and although sadly, no on-site café, there are plenty of places for refreshments nearby.

Pretty view of Porsht cove from the garden and location perfect for exploring the area. We felt very at home in the evenings, curled up in front of the fire and beds are super comfortable. Will be renting this gem again :)

It was extremely comfortable and well thought out açcommodation with good quality furnishings and a stunning view over the Summer Isles. It's also well located next to the Summer Isles Hotel. It's pŕobably the best self catering accommodation I have stayed in and is of an extremely high standard. Thank you.
