With breathtaking mountain and water views from its balcony, terrace and most rooms, this fantastic lodge is a stylish and unique base from which to explore the west coast of Scotland.

Take in the awe-inspiring views of Lochinver Bay and the Assynt mountains from your stunning glass-fronted holiday home. Relax inside your airy, contemporary wooden lodge, which sleeps up to six guests. Unwind in your infra-red sauna or the bubbles of your hot tub. Explore the scenic west coast of Scotland from your sumptuous retreat, which offers superb indoor and outdoor living.

Your striking holiday home has been designed to make the most of its elevated position and to draw the magnificent views in at every turn. With its abundance of glass and high ceilings, it offers bright, airy accommodation, with more than a touch of luxury. Wooden beams and floors, together with an exposed stone chimney breast, bring a touch of rustic warmth to the modern interior.

Your cathedral-like lounge has a great picture window. Relax together in here beside the roaring multi-fuel stove as your gaze out at your surroundings or watch a film on your TV. Enjoy the underfloor heating during the cooler months. Find your high specification kitchen/diner at ground-floor level too. Dine in here or pull open the bi-folding doors to enjoy meals in the fresh air. Sit up on a stool at your breakfast bar for a cup of coffee and to pour over the newspapers. Find two of your bedrooms, both with en-suite shower rooms, plus a WC, on this floor too. Climb the stairs up to your airy landing to find your sauna and master bedroom. This not only has an en-suite bathroom but also a private balcony, where you can sip your first cup of tea of the day.

Dine out in your garden beside your pond. Fire up your hot tub and luxuriate in the warm water while you survey the picturesque panoramas. Your holiday home comes with private parking.

Go walking, cycling and wildlife watching straight from your beautiful base. Head a little further on from Lochinver to go fishing in picturesque Loch Culag or walking in the delightful Culag Woods.

Spend the day with your friends and family on one of the many beaches in the area. Achmelvich Bay, for example, is just over 4 miles away. This is a stunning, white sandy beach, which is popular for sea fishing and kayaking, as well as swimming. Pack a picnic and stay here all day enjoying the Scottish sunshine.

Visit Loch Assynt, about 8 miles from your holiday home. This is a freshwater loch, where you can go walking and trout fishing, and which is home to a number of historic monuments, including Ardvreck Castle. This was originally built by the MacLeods of Assynt towards the end of the 15th century. During your stay, also visit the Highland Stoneware Pottery. This is less than 1 mile from your holiday home and is a fascinating place to browse.

The lodge ticked all the boxes for us. It was spacious, well laid out and had everything needed for a fantastic week. The owners have clearly opted for quality items in the fittings and furnishings. The hot tub and sauna just added that touch of luxury. We experienced a minor issue with the house during our stay and the way in which the owners dealRead moret with the problem could not have been faulted. Highly recommended and we will certainly be returning in the future. Hide

Brilliant holiday. Mountain lodge retreat was spectacular, the photos on the website looked impressive but in reality the accommodation and location blew us away. Comfortable beds, lovely bed linen and oodles of space. Hot tub and sauna fantastic. Kitchen extremely well equipped, ice machine and Sonos speakers a nice touch. Lochinver itself is greaRead moret, perfect for the NC500 and Delilahs and Peets shellfish awesome. Was a complete wrench to leave both the Lodge and the Highlands. Hide

We enjoyed every aspect of our stay at Waterloo Lodge. The accommodation is first class, clean and well equipped with everything you need and more. We loved the hot tub and warming log fires inside and out during November and that view is truly spectacular. Worth the long journey without doubt. Hope to visit again soon.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
