Interaction with guests
Torbreck Croft House sits peacefully back off the single track B869 road down it's own good track. The B869 is on the Drumbeg loop of the NC500. There is lots to do! Visit the wonderful unspoilt white sandy beaches nearby. Achmelvich (2 miles), Clachtoll (4.5 miles) & Clashnessie (6.5 miles) are the closest but with some exploring you can find many more secluded gems. Travel a little further to Oldeshoremore and Sandwood Bay, both within an hours drive, or up to Balnakeil at Durness. Walk along the coast or across the hills and moors, the choice of routes is endless and wherever you go there are stunning views of Assynt and you may not see another person all day. From the cottage, you can walk for miles across the croft and beyond.
