Property Description

With one of the best locations in the area, this spacious and modern property commands stunning panoramic sea and island views and is ideal for a large group or for semi-independent use by two families holidaying together. It has a very well equipped kitchen and large extremely comfortable living room with the gaze-compelling sea always in sight. Large sliding glass doors open out to a natural stone-clad patio area. It further enjoys a first floor sitting room and kitchen, also with large glass doors opening onto a balcony, again with the sea view, and boasts a garden which leads to heather-clad moorland and the coast beyond (200 yards). Just 3 miles from Achiltibuie, it lies on the Coigach Peninsula, with excellent walking around coastal paths or to the huge Ben More Coigach – nearly 2500ft and dominating the skyline. As the main settlement on the peninsula, Achiltibuie began as a crofting village, but now attracts a good number of holidaymakers who come for the excellent trout and salmon fishing or to eat at the Summer Isles Hotel or at the Am Fuaran Bar. Also of gastronomic interest is the Achiltibuie Smokehouse a few miles from the hotel, where traditional methods of smoking food can be seen and where the meat, fish and game can be bought afterwards. Founded at the height of the herring boom at the end of the 18th century, the popular holiday centre of Ullapool is 25 miles distant, jutting out into Loch Broom, the longest sea loch in the north-west Highlands. Several hiking trails begin at Conival, catering for all abilities - from shore side walks to strenuous ascents; whilst mountain biking and climbing are also enjoyed. To the north the hills round Lochinver are worth the effort, as is the geological centre at Knockan Crag and incredible limestone caves at Elphin which have recently yielded a bear skeleton. Trips to the Summer Isles – a cluster of uninhabited islets offshore – can be taken from Ullapool and from Achiltibuie pier at Bardentarbet to view the dolphins and porpoises. Trout, salmon and deep-sea fishing is available just 3 miles from the property, with sandy beaches ½ mile and 6 miles. Coastal fishing is good close to Conival or at the pier at Badentarbet which yielded the British record rod caught skate. Shop 3 miles.
