Bed linen, towels, logs, coal, electric heating and wi-fi are included and there are a selection of games, books and children's DVDs. There are also ipod docks, digital radios which you can connect to with bluetooth for music from your phone, an XBox 360 and a flat screen television. Outside there is a shed perfect for storing outdoor gear and a picnic table and seating for making the most of the house's southerly facing aspect. There are additional deck chairs and a BBQ stored in the shed. From the garden it is possible to walk freely across the croft land and for miles around including to the Manse Loch, one of hundreds of hill lochs in the area, where brown and sea trout can be caught. Even closer to hand, fish on little Loch an Ordain on the croft, 2 minutes walk from the house. We have built a jetty for your convenience. Fish for salmon on the nearby Inver and Kirkaig Rivers. Permits required, check out Assynt Angling website. At the end of the day, store your rod safely on our purpose built rod rack. Although little Loch an Ordain is only a short walk from the house, it is completely fenced and gated and is not suitable for swimming in. An ideal location for beach holidays, walking, fishing, cycling and relaxing. Stop off during your NC500 travels! Perfect for families, small groups or couples. There is a baby bath, travel cot and high chair for your infant. Please note, there is a small burn at the bottom of the garden. More

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.

About the neighbourhood
There is a folder in the house with lots of information about the house and area that should help you settle in quickly.
Getting around
Climb spectacular mountains with walks or climbs of all grades - Stac Pollaidh, Suilven, Canisp and Quinag to name just a few. Visit prehistoric bone caves, a Pictish broch, ruins of 15th century Ardvreck Castle and many more historic sites. Take a boat trip to Handa Island for some bird watching, seabirds gather to breed here including puffins, or to the Summer Isles where Minke whale, porpoise, basking sharks and seals are not uncommon sightings, or from Kylesku to see the highest waterfall in Europe. Golden eagles may be spotted along the way. Try out sea kayaking. NorWest Sea Kayaking run day, 1/2 day, evening, multi-day and week trips in the area. No experience is necessary.
