Self-catering accommodation in Lochinver
This is prime hill-walking country where sightings of the rare golden eagle, sea eagle and pine marten aren’t uncommon. The fantastic group of lochs in the area aren’t shy of local wildlife either; Loch Roe to the north west of Lochinver is home to colonies of seals and is very popular for nature lovers exploring the area. With around 200 or so lochans, Lochinver is a very popular fishing spot in the Northern Highlands – particularly with anglers. In fact, Lochinver is the second largest fishing port in Scotland, and you’ll notice the busy harbour crowded daily with local and visiting vessels.
Exploring the breathtaking scenery around Lochinvar is best done on foot and a walk to the nearby village of Achmelvich to the north west is well worth a trek. The beach here is a hidden gem and one of many pristine beaches in the area - you will delight in visiting this sandy loch shore. Discover a log cabin with a hot tub, a cosy cottage with a wood burner or a lodge set right on the edge of a loch. Spend a few days on a short break, treat a loved one for a special occasion or get together with a group of mates or family friends for a getaway in a big lodge in this picturesque area of Scotland. Pick out a holiday cottage in Lochinver for a tranquil holiday.
