Heather Cottage - UK5865
Heather Cottage is one of five cottages on this rural estate, accessed via its own private lane. It is detached and has three bedrooms, all en-suite. The main living area is open plan, and this spacious room runs the length of the cottage and affords stunning views from the large patio doors over the surrounding hillside, with sheep grazing alongside. The double bedroom on the ground floor has patio doors which drink in the superb location.
There are wonderful walks direct from the cottage, which meander along the shoreline passing through sandy coves. The nearby beach at Achmelvich is simply stunning, with its white shell-sand bay and the emerald green sea of the Atlantic. The area is a haven for wildlife with red deer, otters, seals, porpoises, Minke whale and numerous sea birds including black throated divers and osprey all seen in the region. The nearby hamlet of Clachtoll has a small shop and café, whilst Lochinver, just 3 miles along the coast, has a larger selection of facilities. This pretty fishing village with its natural harbour has a good selection of restaurants, two pubs, small shops and cafés.
Sailing, canoeing, kayaking, mountain biking, hill-walking, fishing and climbing are all enjoyed locally. There are superb walks and climbs direct from the house, and the dramatic peaks of Suilven, Stac Pollaidh, Canisp, Quinag and Ben More Assynt dominate the skyline of this wild and unspoilt Highland region. Beach ½ mile. Shop 1 mile, pub and restaurant 3 miles.
