Lochinver, Caithness and Sutherland, Scottish Highlands, Scotland
An Airidh is a recently refurbished converted croft house where we have enjoyed holidays for over 30 years. I hope others will be able to too.
Upstairs there is one double and two twin singles as well as a family bathroom with bath and shower.
Downstairs are two sitting rooms; one with an an open fire, the second with a sofa bed and second TV. The kitchen is fully equipped and there is a downstairs loo and small utility room with washing machine and dryer.

The house is conveniently situated near Lochinver and the white sandy beaches at Achmelvich. It provides a great base for exploring this exceptional area with its unique mountains, numerous lochs, rivers and rugged coastline. It is good for walking, climbing, trout and salmon fishing, deer stalking, cycling, water sports and painting.

Lochinver is a small fishing port with two s...

A great base near the attractive fishing village of Lochinver and well-placed to explore the local sandy beaches , the mountains of Assynt and the very different rocky countryside with its moorland, lochans and little valleys with native woods.

Quite different to anything else in the UK and at times breath-taking and there is plenty of wildlife to be heard and seen.. There is also a good choice of restaurants in the area, with good seafood although some may require a drive.

All in all, I would definitely recommend staying in An Airidh and of course it is quiet with absolutely no traffic noise !

How to get there
Airport: Inverness Airport: 160.0 km
Railway: Lairg: 73.0 km
Head north on the A9 from Inverness and then take the A835 to Ullapool. From Ullapool take the A835 and A837 to Lochinver. Just before Lochinver turn right onto the B869, signposted Stoer and Drumbeg. After about a mile there is a small bridge. Do not turn left to Achmelvich here, but keep on the main road to the right. An Airidh is on the right less than a 1/4 mile after the bridge. If you go up a long, long hill you have missed the house!

Nearest airport is Inverness.
Nearest train stations are Garve and Lairg.
Buses from Ullapool run term time only.
