We knew the area and wanted a house big enough for 8 adults. 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.
