Places to stay in Drumbeg
A modern house in an ancient landscape. In a country of beautiful landscape, Assynt in the far north west highlands stands out for its extraordinary geology, mountains, lochs and coastline. With some of the oldest rock in the world (3.5Bn years old), numerous remains of iron age settlements, abundant wild life, wild terrain and sporting activities, there is much to see and experience in this special corner of Scotland. It is remote yet accessible, being a 2 hour drive from Inverness through wonderful scenery and generally empty roads. So much so, that at certain times of the year, visitors are more likely to see red deer than other cars. The house is newly built, of solid (cross lateral) timber construction allowing for a very open and distinctive interior. With under floor heating from an air source heat pump and wood burning stove and high standards of insulation it is warm and welcoming throughout the year. The guest bedroom has its own door to the outside and ensuite shower and toilet. It is connected with the rest of the house by 10 steps from inside your room. Guests are free to use the upstairs ‘gallery’ sitting room with spectacular views of nearby sea and more distant mountains. This is where breakfast will be served as shown in one of the images. Please take note that the living room and kitchen area is also very much our own living space during the day and evening, so while it is absolutely fine if you want to sit at the table in the panorama window for a while, you will not be able to use this space as freely as if it was an area especially for guests to use. If you decide to have an evening meal with us (optional) it will be within the kitchen/living room. We are vegetarian so this is the food we serve, but we can assure you of its variety and freshness. We can provide a meal for our guests provided it fits in with other commitments we might have, so if you would like to join us for a meal on one of your evenings please enquire in advance what is possible at the time of your visit. We charge £18 pounds per person for a three course meal (not including wine or beer), you can bring what you like to drink or make a financial contribution to drinks we provide. Being a new house, the garden is in a state of development. There are always projects going on and some materials around, be it related to Nigel's artworks or generally to do with developing the garden. The house is accessed up a track through a surrounding field. There are several houses and crofts nearby, a beach with easy access to the sea and many places to walk and explore. Clashnessie has no shops, the nearest village is Lochinver (8 miles away) where there is a selection of shops, a petrol station, restaurants and other places to visit. Please click on "Location" to read our advice on eating out in Lochinver. It is possible to get to the house by public transport from Inverness, but this is likely to take a day’s travel. To explore the area and for ease of travel it is recommended guests come by car. Inverness is best reached by either train or plane, and we recommend if coming from the south of England, to use the Caledonian sleeper service that arrives in Inverness at 8.30 am. There is a Budget car rental depot five minutes from the station. We can provide further advice on routes etc if required. Assynt is often described as being in the ‘wild north west’. This is an apt description of the landscape and at times the weather. Strangely this part of Scotland often has drier weather than places further south. Being on the coast the weather is changeable with often dramatic skies and ever changing light. Highly photogenic and at times it is extraordinary to experience such variety in a short space of time. Finally, another advantage of being on the coast with wind (of varying force) there are few midges – a real bonus in the height of the summer.
Clashnessie is a small place and doesn't have any shops. The nearest village is Lochinver, 8 miles south of Clashnessie. There is also "Flossie's Beach Store" by the road in Clachtoll (approx. 2.5 miles away) where you can buy essentials and get a coffee or tea when out and about. We advise guests to make arrangements for eating out if that is what you would like to do. Compared to cities and many places in Europe, restaurants here often don't serve hot food for very late into the evening, especially in the early part of the season or later in autumn. In the summer it can get very busy too, so if you haven't booked a table you may have to wait a while until there is a table available. I am happy to give you more information if needed, but as a general rule I would say, make sure you book a table and don't plan to arrive at the restaurant of your choice too late (especially in the early part of the season (April) some restaurants don't take food orders after 7:30pm). The restaurants in Lochinver are: Lochinver Pie Shop (specialises in all sorts of pies but also serves other dishes), The Caberfeidh Dining Pub (pub bar and restaurant), Inver Lodge (higher end of the price spectrum), An Cala Cafe (serves breakfast, lunch and evening meals until around 8 in the summer), Peet's Restaurant (in the harbour area), Culag Hotel, Glen Canisp Lodge (a B&B which also serves food in the evening to non residents, approximately a mile and a half up a single track road branching off left from the main road). They all have their own websites if you want to do a bit of forward planning.
  • Andrea and Nigel are lovely hosts with an even lovelier space. The room offers amazing views of the country side, and the drive there is one beautiful scene after another. Andrea and Nigel gave us wonderful recommendations of what galleries we could find in the area, as well as showing us their own work. Breakfast was fantastic. We can't recommend this place enough, and would be delighted to stay with them (and Bruno, their wonderful dog!) again.

  • This was my first time using Airbnb and Andrea and Nigel provided an outstanding first experience. They thought of everything and the set up at their home was perfect for what we needed. Private yet homey and accommodating - with the extra advantage of an awesome Bruno who welcomed us each time we got back to the house. The place is beautifully and uniquely decorated mostly with their own art which just added to the beautiful landscapes surrounding their home. Friendly people, beautiful animal and lovely home: 10/10 from me!

    Maria2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Would definitely go back there, wish our stay would have been longer. Andrea and Nigel were unbelievably helpful, our car had a flat tire in the middle of nowhere and they were kind enough to pick us up there as there was no other help whatsoever from the hire company. Without them we probably would still be standing on the side of the road. The place was great with amazing views and lots to explore near by. Hope we manage to be back there soon!

    Christoph2019-09-26T00:00:00Z
  • We had a wonderfull time here in clashnessie ! The bedroom was cosy and clean, the house and garden was super cute, but the best part is the surroundings ! It feels like being in the middle of nowhere, and you can enjoy this while eating breakfast, which was amazing. The hosts were very nice with us, easy to talk to ! Would highly recommend :)

    Joel2019-09-17T00:00:00Z
  • Striking location, intriguing hosts, beautiful accommodations, and a very gracious home for even one day. Countryside is filled with such beauty and history, an excellent choice to stay.

    Tom2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • We spent one night with Andrea and her husband. Their great house is a bit out of the way, but that's why we chose the room. Great hostess, excellent breakfast, great accommodation. We would come back anytime!

    Ramona2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous accommodation in such a remote part of Scotland. Wonderful hosts and enjoyed seeing Andrea's craft workshop and learning about Nigel's sculptures.

    Margaret2019-09-13T00:00:00Z
  • Andrea and Nigel are very nice people. The view is really amazing and the breakfast was really nice with lots of choices and a nice spot with an amazing view. The room and bathroom were very nice and clean. The hosts gave nice and helpfull tips about the surroundings. We had a nice and comfortable stay.

    Award-winning tiny house is located the most northerly stretch of NC500, Scotland's answer to Route 66. Stay in this partly off-grid, wooden house on wheels with its breathtaking view, very close to the beach. Lots of other things to explore nearby.
    The tiny house movement began in the USA as people explore the future possibilities of living in compact, low energy spaces. This tiny house was built by British trail-blazer Mark Burton (http://www.custombuiltsurrey.com/one-bed-house-on-wheels.html), who won an award from the Independent Newspaper, and has featured in numerous "lifestyle" TV programmes including Grand Designs. The tiny house in Clashnessie is the first to go largely off-grid, depending on mains supply for water and high-output electric appliances only. Supplementary power comes from photovoltaic panels and cylinder gas, and there is a composting lavatory. But this is not rough-living, and offers a shower, a fabulous king-size bed, a fridge - more or less all you need in a house, except space. The furniture has been chosen to a high design standard; this is emphatically not a caravan!
    We are located on the most northerly stretch of NC500, 'Scotland's answer to Route 66' and voted one of the six most scenic coastal roads in the world by Traveller Magazine. (http://www.northcoast500.com/home.aspx). Clashnessie itself is quite simply a magic place, with a large sweep of safe sandy beach that is never busy, a fascinating coastline and rugged hinterland. The patient observer can see seals, otters, dolphins, porpoises, and sometimes orcas, as well as varied bird-life. Red deer are as common as rabbits - a nuisance to agriculture, but splendid beasts nonetheless. This is Scotland's "wild west", lying north of the Hebrides. It is one of the dark places of Europe, perfect for astronomers. The area, Assynt, is also world famous for its geology, and the tiny house sits on some of the oldest rock in the world. Just round the coast is the spectacular sea-stack, the Old Man of Stoer. The ring of local mountains - Quinag, Canisp, Suilven, Cul More and Beag, Ben More, and Stac Pollaidh, stand up dramatically on the landscape. No Munros among them except Ben More Assynt, but challenging day-climbs for all that. Brown trout abound in local lochs, and salmon fishing can be arranged by permit. There are numerous places suitable for sailing, kayaking and scuba-diving, and the "main" road, scenic, undulating single-track with passing places, makes for interesting cycling and motor-cycling. Botanists also enjoy the area for its flora including varieties of wild orchid. The nearest pub and shop are in Drumbeg, 5 miles to the north, and the hub of local activity is the scenic fishing village of Lochinver, 9 miles south, which has shops, a varied offer of social events, and 9 food outlets from a sandwich bar to a Michelin-starred restaurant. The North Assynt Estate in which the crofting "township" of Clashnessie is situated, celebrates twenty years now since its famously unprecedented tenant buy-out, since when, in an area notorious for the Highland Clearances and absentee landlords, the people finally own the land. The Gaelic language is also enjoying a revival in the area. And yes, there are midges, but we cope with them.
  • Pam is a wonderful host who will go out of her way to make your stay enjoyable. I would recommend going on her 'historical' tour as she is very knowledgeable of the area and history. The tiny house is 'tiny' but contains all the essentials you will need for a pleasant stay. It is a beautiful area with many hike opportunities.

    Tom2019-09-11T00:00:00Z
  • The Tiny House was a unique and unforgettable place to stay in a gorgeous location. The hike to the waterfall just down the lane was amazing. Host Pamela was wonderful, stocked the fridge with breakfast for us and even came to the rescue with loaner wellies when my shoes got soaked--and dried them off on her radiator overnight! The house lived up to its name--very tiny!--but a fun, cozy adventure in off-the-grid living. Be prepared for an experience a bit closer to camping than a standard b and b, but that was part of the charm.

    Allison2019-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • Definitely the best house in the north, great view, nice neighbours with cute fringes, and amazing host that gave us awesome, memorable welcome!

    Kajetan2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • The place is truly unique, can only recommend to visit Pamela's tiny house in Clashnessie.

    Arne2019-08-14T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic experience at Pamela's Tiny House in Clashnessie. The house has everything you need for a great stay, and the local area and people are amazing. Definitely worth the trip!

    Jonathan2019-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at the Tiny House was amazing! The house is really small, but is has everything you need (and the bed is amazing with the most beautiful view). We stayed here for 9 days and we loved every day. When the weather would permit it, we would eat breakfast outside while enjoying the view of the beach and the waterfall. We walked al lot every day, the area is beautiful! Pamela was a great host, she was very helpful before and during our stay. She told us about nice walks in the area and she was always ready to help us if needed. This was a vacation to remember.

    Hilde2019-07-25T00:00:00Z
  • The house is located in a wonderful nature and is equipped with everything you need. Despite the size you have enough space and can enjoy the beautiful views. Pamela has explained everything in detail to us, she is a very loving and attentive hostess. We really enjoyed spending some time there. It's really an experience !. Thank you so much for everything. With very best regards Gudrun and Stefan

    Stefan2019-06-22T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great stay in the Tiny House - a wonderful place to get away from it all in a beautiful setting. Pamela was a great host and made us feel very welcome. She provided us with some great recommendations of things to do in the local area to make the most of our time here. Would definitely recommend.

    Clashnessie, Lochinver, Sutherland, United Kingdom

    Set In the picturesque village of drumbeg in the north west highlands, We run a little croft with sheep, goats, chickens, dogs & cat so you can experience a taste of rural highland life. An excellent stop over if you are on the NC500 or a space to relax for a few days, the choice is yours. WiFi is satellite so good speeds but mobile signal can be patchy but that’s all part of life in highlands, instead, fill your day with walks, Munro’s or peat tracks or fishing in the many local lochs.
    Zero light pollution and absolute quiet makes this one of the places where you can really get away from it all. The only noise you’ll perhaps here is the cluck of chickens, the bleat of sheep and goats looking for their breakfast! You are of course welcome to help out on our little croft, gathering eggs, feeding goats etc or just sit and chill out with views to die for of Loch Drumbeg and watch for deer coming down off the hill in the evenings. This does mean that this is a remote rural location and amenities are limited, mobile signal is patchy at best.
    Drumbeg has a village shop with a delicious deli counter and all the basics, including fresh fruit & veg and a good selection of beer and wines, including Drumbeg cask whiskey! There is also a small hotel with bar just a short walk away (seasonal) Restaurants are in lochinver, a 15 mile drive or kyleslu 9 miles so we recommend that you eat prior to your arrival. With the Atlantic on one side and over 200 fresh water lochs on the other, you are always close to water. Ideal for a spot of fishing or just following the old peat tracks into the hills, Drumbeg is the perfect getaway from the hustle and bustle of life, recharge your batteries and get an idea of what it’s like to live in the least populated place in Europe. Surrounded by history, geology and scenery, and if you’re lucky the northern lights, enjoy the best of rural life with all mod cons.
  • Marianne is a wonderful and super friendly host with a wealth of knowledge about the area. The property is lovely, the views are breathtaking and it’s a treat to be on a working croft with a variety of animals around. Highly recommended!

    Connie2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • A really great place to stay. Host Marriane was very gracious and helpful even supplying me with a surprise dinner. Highly recommended.

    Robert2020-01-14T00:00:00Z

    Iain2019-12-06T00:00:00Z

    Ashley2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Marianne's place is in a beautiful, peaceful location and she made us feel right at home. It was the ideal base from which to explore a great part of Scotland.

    Fergus2019-11-22T00:00:00Z
  • Marianne was a lovely host, she took care of my mother and helped her find her way in her journey onwards. I'm very pleased to have booked this accommodation and would recommend anyone looking for a polite and hospitable host and a clean and tidy room to stay here. Many thanks.

    Jonathan2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • Marianne's farm is a real farm, in an authentic place overlooking a pretty little lake. Marianne is very welcoming, the room and the bathroom are comfortable. We dined while chatting with her son, and the next day Marianne kindly showed me her farm, and her many animals - shetland sheep, goats, chickens, dogs and cats - a real moment of happiness at a very reasonable rate. No doubt I have my favorite experiences in the highlands! Thank you

    Arie2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • The place is a little hard to find after dark, but once we did we were made very welcome. It is properly warm and cosy, the breakfast room is nice.

  • Does what it says on the tin. Spent 5 nights here on a work trip and all good. Simple room, as stated, but a good place to put the head down at the end of a day. Conservatory for exclusive guest use and supplies for a quick breakfast provided.

    Sam2020-01-21T00:00:00Z

  • Speechless or should we say stuck for words to write - such amazing hosts, such an amazing place - two nights of hot tub heaven and then a cosy nights sleep with the wood burner crackling - I almost wrote a poem! We will be back in October.

  • Loved this place. Very well done out, great kitchen. Lovely walks, hot tub was great & fab location to explore the Scottish Highlands.

    Jeff2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay was absolutely perfect in every way. The shepherd’s hut is located over a loch with outstanding views, and the starry sky at night whilst in the hot tub is just magical. The shepherd’s hut has been finished to the highest standard and there are so many lovely touches that make it the perfect, cosy nest. We got engaged over New Year’s Eve and it couldn’t have been a more romantic setting! Thank you so much as well for the lovely bottle of champagne. Our dog Roo loved it too, and the location was perfect for exploring all the breathtaking scenery. We will be back! Karina & Tim x

    Karina2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • The Shepherd Hut is an idyllic place to stay while touring the Highlands. Spectacular views and the hut is kitted out with everything you could need, completely modern with a great rainfall shower. Then of course there is the wood-fired hot tub. Despite it being 2 degrees outside, we fired up the hot tub on all four nights and spent hours star gazing, sipping on prosecco. Amazing! Hosts Jacqui and Jason are friendly and on hand if you need anything, and have great tips on places to visit. Can not recommend enough.

    Traditional stone cottage on the coast 8 miles from Lochinver, with views of sea and hill, renovated to a high standard with underfloor heating and a modern well-equipped kitchen and bathroom. A peaceful hideaway for 2 people on a working croft.
    Beyond the end of the road, with views across Clashnessie Bay to the spectacular Sutherland hills of Quinag, Ben Stack, Arkle and Foinaven, you will find Laid Bothy. It is a traditional single storey stone cottage, renovated sympathetically and to a high standard. The rooms are warm and cosy, with underfloor heating under natural slate tiles. Walls are natural stone and well-insulated wood panelling. There is a well-equipped modern kitchen off the cosy living room, a high-spec. shower room, and a bedroom with a king-size double bed. There is also a large entrance hall with plenty of space for boots and coats, and a concealed washing machine. The Bothy is ideal for individuals or couples, with the bed normally set up as a king-size double, although it can be separated into two singles. There is free wifi. There is also a television which receives Freesat channels. The house is attached to a byre on one side and is set on a working croft, with rare breed Hebridean sheep, pigs and hens, and Highland cattle on the neighbouring croft. Produce from the croft may be available to purchase, depending on the time of year you visit. Laid Bothy provides a peaceful escape from the pace of modern living, without compromising on comfort and is an ideal base for exploring the magical landscape of Assynt and the Northwest Highlands.
    Clashnessie Bay, with its large sweep of sand and gently sloping beach, is a short walk away (1 km round the coast or 1.5km along the road) and has a car park if you want to transport equipment there. There is also a small stony beach at the bottom of our croft where we launch our kayaks. The main beach is very safe, although we recommend wetsuits if you are going to be in the water for long! There are other excellent beaches nearby, at Clachtoll and Achmelvich, walks to suit all ages and levels, from the All Abilities Path near Loch Assynt, to the Munros of Ben More Assynt and Conival, not forgetting iconic Suilven, Quinag, which you can see from the Bothy, and the other beautiful hills of the Northwest Geopark. This is a mecca for geologists, with a visitor centre at Knockan Crag and a cafe and exhibition at Rockstop in Unapool. Those interested in historic buildings can visit the ruins of Calda House and Ardvreck Castle near Loch Assynt, the old kirk at Inchnadampf and the newly excavated broch at Clachtoll. You can go on boat trips from Lochinver and Kylesku or visit Handa Island, an RSPB reserve where puffins, guillemots, razorbills, fulmars and kittiwakes nest in the cliffs, not forgetting the skuas who may dive bomb you as you walk across the island! There are small but well-stocked licensed grocery shops in Clachtoll, Drumbeg and Lochinver and a Tesco in Ullapool. Drumbeg Stores provides a delivery service for advance orders. Lochinver is also famous for its pottery, where you can see articles being hand-painted, and its pie shop, and there are many places to eat there at all price levels, including a Michelin-starred restaurant.
  • Fantastic spot in an absolutely beautiful spot. Has a really nice cosy cottage feel to it, and nice and warm, especially at this time of the year. My girlfriend and I loved the long weekend spent at this Airbnb.

    Shaun2020-01-06T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our stay. The view from the cottage is beautiful and there are lots of lovely local walks. The cottage was really well equipped and we had everything we needed!

    Alice2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at Laid Bothy. The place was sparking clean and cosy. Vanessa and David provided detailed descriptions of lovely local walks and were very happy to answer any questions we had. I would definitely recommend this place if you want to get away from it all and take in the beautiful Scottish scenery.

    Jennifer2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • A remote and wonderful location. This is a very comfortable place to stay and is highly recommended. Just make sure to bring enough food for your intended stay.

    Michael2019-10-08T00:00:00Z
  • Spectacular location overlooking the bay. A gorgeous stone bothy which has been beautifully decorated. A very special place. Make sure you stock up on provisions for your stay as it’s quite a long drive to the nearest shops.

    Hilary2019-10-04T00:00:00Z
  • The Laid Bothy is beautifully situated with great views. It's just nice to stay here! It is perfectly decorated, you can start cooking and catering right away, all super practical with fully equipped kitchen, here Vanessa thought of everything. The living room invites you to read and you can also see what happens outside weather wise. You can also start right from the house, otherwise the surrounding area offers very good hiking possibilities. We used several suggestions from Vanessa, all great. The washing machine was also briefly in use. We had changeable rainy weather and felt very well there. We would go back anytime. Also, the larger house above is beautiful!

  • Idyllic stay This is a beautiful little Bothy, tastefully and comfortably converted to all modern needs and with everything you could need (even a knife sharpener which many places could add to their ‘must-have lists’). The location is sublime - with lovely views across Clashnessie Bay and to the mountains beyond and North. It is as the end of a little road, so completely peaceful. A wonderful place to escape to is this stunning part of the world. Vanessa was swift and clear with all communication and welcomed us with a tour of the bothy and plenty local advice. Definitely recommend.

  • Wow, what a fab place. 5 star accommodation, great host, fantastic location. You can’t go wrong with this one.

    Mark2019-05-09T00:00:00Z
  • Clean and comfy room in a serene and stunning location. Breakfast was a nice added bonus. Wish we could have stayed another day to explore the area.

    Erin2019-04-23T00:00:00Z
  • Janet is a very helpful host, and makes you feel at home with fresh milk, homemade shortbread and very easy-to-follow directions. She even helped us find a place to eat dinner on a dreary Tuesday night in the dead of winter. Her homemade breakfast was delicious, and the views breathtaking! The road is quite a bit of fun, take the long road around Lochinver if you're in a small car - the drive is beautiful regardless.

    Chad2019-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • Janet is the most enthusiastic and helpful host ever. the place is extraordinary, remote and stunning. Janet and her husband are still improving the house, and thats no problem at all! It will be even more beautiful than it is now. Janets breakfast is great, but she REALLY made it for us when she turned out to be that person that we saw swimming in the sea (6th of January!!!!) RESPECT Janet !!! Great recommendation for people that love remote and nature places!!!

    A.L.M.2019-01-07T00:00:00Z
  • The house is beautiful, located in a fjord so the view was spectacular. The breakfast is delicious, carefully prepared and we ate in an intimate veranda with a wonderful view. Janet and her husband were really kind so I highly recommend this establishment.

  • Truly wonderful and amazing stay at Janet’s place. The couple is very pleasant and hospitable - made us feel right at home. Room is freshly refurbished - spotless and cosy! The homemade breakfast was so perfect that we could not stop raving about it. Combine all that with the absolutely marvellous view from the house and this is one of the most remarkable stays we’ve had!

    HOLLY is one of two cabins that can be booked at Rustic Cabins, tucked up in the North West of Scotland, on the Stoer Peninsula, 1 mile from the NC500 route and 9 miles from Lochinver. Take your time and explore this remote corner of the Highlands by staying at Rustic Cabins, Achnacarnin which offers comfortable accommodation in a relaxing location for up to 4 people. With iconic mountains and stunning beaches nearby, Holly is the perfect base for you, your family and friends to explore from.
    On the picturesque Stoer Head peninsula lies the quiet corner of Rustic Cabins. Through the gate and past the small wooded area, you reach the cabins of HOLLY and HAZEL. Both face towards the Assynt mountains with plenty of space outside to enjoy, whatever the weather. Inside you will find a nice wee living room with a double room, twin room and kitchen off to the sides and a bathroom with bathtub and shower.
    This is a quiet corner off the main NC500 tourist route. Surrounded by crofting farm land and a mixture of residents and holiday homes. A great place to walk or cycle out from and explore the beaches and coastal landscape. At Clachtoll just 3 miles away there is a well stocked beach hut shop (Flossie's) and the nearest town of Lochinver is just 9 miles.
  • We stayed in Hazel cabin, a lovely quirky clean cabin with great views where we watched deer on the hillside. Fully stocked kitchen and we had a good nights sleep. Great communication with host.

    Andrew2019-09-12T00:00:00Z
  • My dad and I stayed in Holly for one night during our NC500 cycling adventure and loved the charming little cabin. We got caught in bad weather and didn’t make it to the store before it closed at 6pm, but they were kind enough to bring us a basket of food (and beer!) to cook up when we arrived. It was appreciated beyond words! As the bad weather had passed in the morning, we could enjoy the amazing view from the cabin porch. And of course, gorgeous views as we made our way north from Achnacarnin.

    Johanna2019-09-07T00:00:00Z

    Marta2019-07-22T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed at Rustic Cabins with my girlfriend and her parents as part of a road trip up north from Edinburgh. Really nice surroundings and beautiful scenery wherever you look. Will definitely book again.

    Former croft house on the coast 8 miles from Lochinver, with spectacular views, renovated to a high standard with underfloor heating. Downstairs is an open plan kitchen/dining/living room, a utility/boot room and a toilet. In the living area, which can be curtained off, is a king-size sofa bed. Upstairs are two bedrooms, one double with ensuite, one twin and a bathroom with a shower over the bath. A comfortable home for 4-6 people on a working croft with the owners' house adjacent.
    Beyond the end of a very minor road, with views across Clashnessie Bay to the spectacular Sutherland hills of Quinag, Ben Stack, Arkle and Foinaven, you will find Laid Croft House. It is a traditional two-storey stone cottage, renovated sympathetically and to a high standard. The rooms are warm and cosy, with underfloor heating under natural slate tiles downstairs and pine flooring upstairs. Walls downstairs are well-insulated except for two, adjacent to other rooms, of natural stone. Upstairs they are of well-insulated wood panelling, some of which is original. There is a wood-burning stove in the living-room. There is free wifi and a television which receives Freesat channels. At the side entrance is a good-sized utility/boot room where the fridge/freezer, dishwasher and washing machine are kept. Off this room is a small downstairs toilet. The house is set on a working croft, with rare breed Hebridean sheep, pigs and hens, and Highland cattle on the neighbouring croft. Produce from the croft may be available to purchase, depending on the time of year you visit. Laid Croft House provides a peaceful escape from the pace of modern living, without compromising on comfort, and is an ideal base for exploring the magical landscape of Assynt and the Northwest Highlands.
    Vanessa’s home is located in Clashnessie, 8 miles from Lochinver, Scotland, United Kingdom. Clashnessie Bay, with its large sweep of sand and gently sloping beach, is a short walk away (1 km round the coast or 1.5km along the road) and has a car park if you want to transport equipment there. There is also a small stony beach at the bottom of our croft where we launch our kayaks. The main beach is very safe, although we recommend wetsuits if you are going to be in the water for long! There are other excellent beaches nearby, at Clachtoll and Achmelvich, walks to suit all ages and levels, from the All Abilities Path near Loch Assynt, to the Munros of Ben More Assynt and Conival, not forgetting iconic Suilven, Quinag, which you can see from the Croft House, and the other beautiful hills of the Northwest Geopark. This is a mecca for geologists, with a visitor centre at Knockan Crag and a cafe and exhibition at Rockstop in Unapool. Those interested in historic buildings can visit the ruins of Calda House and Ardvreck Castle near Loch Assynt, the old kirk at Inchnadampf and the newly excavated broch at Clachtoll. You can go on boat trips from Lochinver and Kylesku or visit Handa Island, an RSPB reserve where puffins, guillemots, razorbills, fulmars and kittiwakes nest in the cliffs, not forgetting the skuas who may dive bomb you as you walk across the island! There are small but well-stocked licensed grocery shops in Clachtoll, Drumbeg and Lochinver and a Tesco in Ullapool. Drumbeg Stores provides a delivery service for advance orders. Lochinver is also famous for its pottery, where you can see articles being hand-painted, and its pie shop, and there are many places to eat there at all price levels.
  • A remote location overlooking the sea and mountains with stunning walks and beaches nearby. Comfy beds, hot water and a well equipped kitchen. A good base for exploring this beautiful part of Scotland. The owners live next door and were on hand and happy to answer any questions we had. Thank you Vanessa & David!

    Katy2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • This is a very cosy, warm and comfortable cottage which has been fitted to a really high standard.

    Helen2019-09-01T00:00:00Z

    Leslie2019-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very spacious and well furnished. The location very quiet with a nice view. The communication with the landlady was quick and easy.

    Daniel2019-08-07T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 9 days in Clashnessie and had a wonderful and very relaxing time (5 adults). Hiking, starting either from the flat or from some of the trails nearby was great, we were lucky with the weather and spent some time at Clashnessie and some of the other beaches nearby as well. The flat absolutely meets both description and pictures, the views from the rooms are awesome letting you experience this wonderful part of Scotland even when staying inside when one of the rather rare rainy moments occurr. Thank you, Vanessa and David for the wonderful days we have had in Clashnessie.

    Yvonne2019-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • This house a brilliantly located for the beach, climbing hills, fishing, cycling etc. The house is spotlessly clean, very comfortable and the host is really helpful and available as they are next door if required. There are great views from the front of the house to the nearby beach and distant mountains. Really quite spot and a great retreat. We had a great stay.

    Greg2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • A place to get away from it everything... Except the magnificent outdoors of Assynt. Despite some unpredictable weather (come prepared for rain!) we had a great vacation here. Vanessa’s house is a spacious, wonderfully restored farmhouse with lots of charm, dreamy beds, and a collection of greats books and magazines to browse by the fire. Also, we really liked that the hosts are so eco friendly (solar power, recycling and composting options) and support the local economy (the lovely dishes were from a local artisan). There are tons of walks nearby, more than one can do in a week, but the Stoer coast and Clach Toll beach are particularly not to be missed.

    Charlotte2019-07-04T00:00:00Z
  • Vanessa and David were there to meet us, I hadn’t communicated as well as usual as I thought my husband was organising, my mistake, they had had no communication. Still they were there to meet us. The house had everything you would need and sparkly clean. Loved our stay.

    Remote, wild and beautiful by the shores of Loch Nedd on the Atlantic coast within the North West Highlands UNESCO Geopark.
    A simple cottage echoing times from early last century - comfortable but not over improved so it still feels traditional but with modern amenities.
  • Lovely traditional croft house with all the equipment you will need, plenty of space, really comfortable beds and nothing horribly pretentious about it.

    Alison2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Comfortable house in a beautiful setting. Very good to discover this beautiful corner of the Highlands.

    Eveline2019-07-31T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot to explore magnificent North west Scotland. Drumbeg store is very close and convenient but closes at 5:30. Very nice and comfortable cottage. The wood stove is great.

    Denis2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • This is really an authentic croft house in dramatic country side. It is hard to find a similar one in this area. We really enjoyed our stay.

    Petr2019-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • Cosy crofter's cottage in a lovely part of the world. We wished we could have stayed longer. The wood heaters really kept us warm. Highly recommend staying at this cottage.

    David2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • A really genuine croft with a working wood burning stove and one of the most comfortable beds ever. Really beautiful area and some good walking . Plenty of space and easy to make it feel homely.

    Lucia2019-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • Derek’s cottage was the perfect secluded venue for a peaceful holiday. It was clean and the kitchen well stocked. The central heating and wood burners ensured that the cottage was very cosy despite the freezing Highland weather. There’s loads of walks and beeches to explore so there’s plenty to do. All in all a great, simple cottage in stunning scenery - highly recommended!

    Marcus2019-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • The location is stunning. Nedd, Drumbeg and area surrounding nearby Lochinver continually left us short of words to describe how beautiful the country is!!! The house is small but very cosy with the log fire and central heating. My only slight negative would be about the kitchen/cooking facilities. The kitchen is basic with limited supplies. We gave up on the idea of cooking here as it was just too difficult with such limited pots/pans, oven trays and crockery supply. That aside we loved being there and would certainly stay again if we were back in the area.

  • Of our five spots along the NC 500, perhaps our most memorable. Certainly most notable. Hot tub, a pie shop in a neighboring town, and a good balance between communication with hosts and alone time. Much recommended. I worried about rolling into the sea (these things are on wheels), but on examination they are well set in their spots (perhaps kick the tires though?). Slept very well after a soak in the hot tub. Eco conscious hosts to boot! Thanks!

    Robert2019-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • The accommodation is even better than described - completely modern and compact with everything you could possibly need. Considering the size from the outside there is so much room inside! Everything was sparkling clean, the bed was extra comfy and lots of information was provided about the local area. We arrived after dark because of the time of the year, I had kept Jacqui updated via the app, as soon as we arrived they were there to help show us to our wee hut and show us how to work everything. Hot tub was just ready to go with was perfect! We spend the evening in the hot tub which stayed hot pretty much all night, and then inside for some dinner and tv. We had big plans to get up early and go exploring, but as it was so cosy in the comfy bed with a view out across the water we ended up having a long lie and having a lazy day - the atmosphere is just so relaxing and perfect! Jacqui and Jason were the perfect hosts - there and available if we needed help but we had our own privacy to get on with our stay as well. They gave us some recommendations which were spot on (visit the pie shop in Lochinver!) and let us know the best way to spot deer and which beaches to visit! We will be back to visit this place as soon as we can - we didnt want to leave!

    Natalie2019-11-01T00:00:00Z
  • The Shepherd's hut is in an amazing place with an uninterrupted view down to the loch. It is very well equipped to a high standard, with enough space to cook good meals. There are so many thoughtful touches, such as extra towels to use in the private hot tub (which is amazing!) and plastic cups to take drinks out. Jacqui and Jason are very friendly with lots of great tips, and we can't wait to go back.

    Jack2019-10-30T00:00:00Z
  • It’s very rare that you can describe an Airbnb accommodation as faultless but the Iris hut was exactly that Full of little touches and considerations, you can tell a lot of time, care, thought and effort has gone into designing the space, it’s surprisingly spacious, spotlessly clean and full of amenities you wouldn’t expect from a shepherds hut such as a hot shower, usb chargers next to the bed, a full size oven, fridge/freezer, all of the kitchen supplies under the sun, and a ton of storage space, not to mention the wonderful private hot tub with stunning views of the coast Jacqui and Jason were the perfect hosts, attentive but not overbearing, full of handy recommendations and very quick to respond to any messages we sent, I knew if there were any issues (there weren’t) they’d be straight over to sort it, they even took time out to make sure our hot tub was ready for us returning from our evening meal, we couldn’t have asked for any more The location is stunning, a single track road provides some fantastic coastal views on the way in, there were plenty of passing places so navigating was a breeze and thanks to the hosts recommendations we were able to visit some amazing locations Overall it was a perfect, albeit too short a getaway and I would recommend Jacqui and Jason’s accommodation to anyone, that’s if we don’t book it up ourselves first 5/5 stars

  • Such a pleasant welcome on arrival and the hut was spotless with hot tub ready to go which was perfect! Had such a pleasant stay and Jason even helped get the hot tub going on night two for the inexperienced log burners in us!

    Iain2020-02-22T00:00:00Z
  • Fabulous location on the NC500 with luxury accommodation ideal for a romantic getaway or relaxing after a day on the hills. Jacqui & Jason have thought through every last detail, if only they had the power to control the weather! However, with the hot tub and log burner the huts are fabulous come rain or shine! Will definitely recommend and will be back...

    Sophie2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • We are just back from a lovely weekend away for Valentine’s Day, and we wish we could come back straight away! We drove around 6 hours to Nedd from Glasgow and thoroughly enjoyed the drive, definitely give yourself time to enjoy the scenery, it is breathtaking! After the long drive, our private hot tub was ready for us on arrival, which was amazing. The skies were so clear and we even seen a shooting star! We had such a relaxing trip, the Shepards hut has an absolutely beautiful interior and was spotless on arrival. Jacqui and Jason are the perfect hosts, so helpful if you have any questions about the surrounding areas and things to do, and are always there for you if you need them, but you still feel like you are secluded and surrounded by nature, its bliss. If you need somewhere to switch off from work like we did, I can’t recommend this place enough. We can’t wait to come back in the summer! 10/10!! ❤️✨

    Lauren2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • We couldn’t recommend Jacqui and Jason’s place enough. The hut is really well-equipped and comfortable. We enjoyed hiking up the Quinag on one day and the Suilven in the other, and hopping into the deep hot tub after the walks was lovely. And Jacqui and Jason couldn’t be friendlier, helping us out with bread, wood and local recommendations on short notice. We will be coming back to this amazing little corner of the world again!

    Joseph2020-01-27T00:00:00Z
  • Such a lovely place to stay. Really cosy and an amazing experience. Beautiful sceneries and lots of different things to do! We loved Smoo Caves and the Lochinver Larder! 😁

    Molly2020-01-11T00:00:00Z
  • Staying in one of Jacqui & Jason’s shepherd huts was the most perfect weekend escape. The accomodation is lovely, beautifully presented and exactly as pictured. The location and views out over the sea are simply magical. It is very remote, and the driving in the area is a little demanding, particular with January weather, but this just made the experience all the more exciting! Both hosts are most welcoming, responsive to all requests and happy to provide local tips, including suggestions for some amazing local hikes. We couldn’t recommend this beautiful getaway any more highly!

    Stephen2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Just back from an amazing stay with Jacqui and Jason. Wow. Where to start?.... Communication was excellent with responses being almost instantaneous. Jacqui also managed to source a bottle of champagne for our arrival at my request, which was chilling and ready to pop! The location is beautiful as are the stags that wander freely around the hut! We underestimated the drive a little bit but got there eventually and the view was more than worth it (although we didn’t see that until morning as it was completely pitch black - just heaven!) our hot tub was waiting already warmed for our arrival and we sat with our champagne listening to the water in the distance - utterly bliss. Just be prepared for how isolated the huts are, particularly in the off season, take plenty of food supplies with you. The actual huts far exceeded our expectations, the quality of workmanship was fantastic and everything appeared to be top of the range and ethically sourced. A personal favourite was the rainfall shower which was just heaven. Will definitely return and look forward to seeing the new orchard take shape! Thank you!

    Karen2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • My wife and I are just back from a 2 night stay in "Handa". My partner had no idea where we were going and was blown away by the location, the views and the hut itself. The hut is new so was tremendously clean and well appointed managing to give you the sense of back to basics living without the feeling that you're missing out. The wood fired hot tub was amazing! It was heated prior to our arrival and some spare wood left for us to feed it as required. I found it had retained a huge amount of heat 24 hours later and only required about an hour of heating before it was ready again. The owners Jacqui and Jason have done an incredible job turning their Croft into the perfect spot for a relaxing getaway and it's clear they're extremely proud of what they've achieved. We will definitely be back.

  • The location of the cabin is amazing, the views are really breathtaking and it is all so quiet! We had two wonderful days discovering the area. The cabin itself is very well equipped and beautiful and cosy. I totally recommend it!

  • One of our best discoveries of our trip. Beautiful cottage, pretty decor, great views, board games and books, very well placed to visit the area that deserve a whole week. We only stayed 3 nights but will stay there longer. The sunset from Stoer lighthouse nearby, the beach of Clashnessie just as beautiful and less touristy than Alchmelvitch, the deer that stroll around, the sheep everywhere ... perfect!

The house has a very well equipped kitchen including a 4 oven gas AGA, a games room, books and games. Assynt provides stunning scenery and wildlife, as well as salmon fishing and Deer Stalking on the local estates. Our housekeeper can provide full or half board catering if required.
  • Perfect house for a get together in the bigger family. Good rooms with toilets and a very good kitchen and livingroom for eating and being together. It worked out very well and we were all very happy. The area is quiet and beautiful and the beach is very nice. We will definitely come back.

  • The much beloved family home in Clashnessie is an excellent place for a large family gathering. The house has lots of bedrooms spaced out nicely so there is ample room. There is a lovely, well-equipped kitchen and a beautiful table that can fit the family. The house is located near a beach ( you can see it out a window of the house), hikes to a waterfall and drives to other interesting locations. Well worth the visit!
