A traditional lodge within walking distance of local amenities, perfect for families and dogs. Great area for walking, cycling and Munro-bagging.
Surrounded by heather and boasting mountain views of Canisp and Suilven, this brilliantly situated house on the ever-popular West Coast of Scotland is perched high on a hill overlooking Lochinver Harbour. Recently refurbished in 2019, find space and light throughout the contemporary interiors, perfect for families, groups and two dogs who want some time and space away from hectic lives in breathtaking, secluded surroundings.
Popular with fishing and shooting groups, careful consideration has been given to the practical requirements of an active, outdoor holiday. There is an additional pantry; a utility room with washing machine, tumble dryer and plenty of drying space for wet clothes; a cloakroom for discarding muddy boots and two additional WCs - all that you could need after a day on the hills.
With the decor throughout reminiscent of a traditional Scottish sporting lodge, find a mix of authentic charm and modern comforts. Conventional yet chic, find traditional furniture and furnishings against a backdrop of wooden floors and cream walls. Gather everyone together for family meals in the dining room, before retiring to unwind on the sofas. Adults and kids can enjoy their own space in the lounge and snug, and with the choice of two roaring open fires. On cooler evenings settle down to watch a movie in the lounge or enjoy a meal in the dining room in a warm amber ambience, perfect for an evening of rest and relaxation.
Stylish and individually decorated, the five bedrooms are beautifully light and bright. Enjoy a tranquil nights sleep amongst vintage pieces, pretty floral textiles and lovely, crisp linens, a welcome retreat at the end of a busy day. The bathrooms are simple and fresh, ideal for a long soak. With the rural location meaning there won’t be a single sound to disturb you from a peaceful night’s sleep, wake rejuvenated to phenomenal views of heather-clad mountains and beautiful blue sea.
From the grand entrance hall, French doors lead out to a patio area with ample seating. The open garden is laid to lawn, and children and pups will love spending hours exploring. Dine alfresco morning, noon and night listening to the sound of the sea and the marvelling at the wild fern and heather-covered hills. End the day with a wee dram under the dark skies, stargazing the night away. The road up to the property is quite steep but the driveway itself is large, flat and has plenty of parking. The village is within walking distance which includes a restaurant, shop and pub.
