Nestling in an idyllic secluded location with wonderful views over the water to the surrounding mountains, this charming detached cottage makes a delightful family holiday or peaceful romantic getaway.

The picturesque village of Lochinver lies at the centre of Assynt, an Area of Outstanding Beauty where spectacular coastal roads lead past cliffs, inlets, sandy beaches and quaint crofting villages. The main road leads inland to the beautiful unspoiled wilderness and the nature reserves of Sutherland. Heading north takes you to Cape Wrath or you can head south to Ullapool. The surrounding area provides unrivalled opportunities for climbing, walking, biking, angling and bird-watching. The cottage is on the edge of the village and the Highland Stoneware pottery is a short walk down the quiet lane, while the main shops, restaurants, hotels, harbour and visitor centre are less than a mile away on the other side of the bay.

On entering this lovely detached cottage, which enjoys a secluded elevated position with beautiful views above Lochinver, you will find yourself in the bright and welcoming lounge/diner. With comfortable seating, TV, hi-fi and wood burner, the traditional and cosy lounge is an ideal space to relax, complete with a charming dining area.

Heading upstairs to the first floor you will find two further comfy bedrooms with sloping ceilings. There’s a twin room, and a double with an en-suite WC. You will also find a bathroom complete with shower over the bath and WC.

Stepping outside, you can relax and unwind in the pretty enclosed grounds which encompass several wooded acres with a charming sitting area, a lovely lawn with play equipment, a tree house, and paths leading to a viewpoint for you to fully appreciate the spectacular surroundings.

this is a delightful cottage with magnificent views. It is in an idyllic situation and one is deafened by birdsong but no other intrusive noise.

We are repeat guests at the cottage and love the location and easy access for walks and Lochinver village for use of local services, all a short walk away. Hope to be back again soon.

For anyone wanting a "Bolthole" from the stresses and strains of everyday life. Darrach cottage is the perfect place. It's peaceful location is ideal and yet not too far from the local amenities of Lochinver. During our stay we didn't require all the heaters to be on but there were certainly plenty should we have needed them.

Very nice cottage, located near Lochinver. A 20 minutes walk brings you to the small village. Well equiped kitchen, nice bedrooms and bathroom. You feel immediately at home when entering the house. The garden around the house gives you the feeling that you are all alone on this planet, nice!
