This magnificently situated house sits on the hill above Lochinver on Scotland’s beautiful west coast and has glorious views across the sea and to the great mountains of Sutherland such as Canisp and Suilven. It is hard to better the landscapes and yet nearby you have the facilities of Lochinver village and even a fabulous hotel and restaurant in walking distance at the Inver Lodge Hotel.

The house is newly refurbished and offers spacious, light and fresh rooms throughout – perfect for family holidays or fishing parties. It is a roomy house with big rooms and plenty of light to enjoy those fabulous views.  A large kitchen with extra pantries, utility room and cloakroom is a great place to magic up large meals and the separate dining room a perfect spot to enjoy them and the views as well as a welcoming open fire. From the hall French doors lead out to a patio where you can relish a summer evening drink looking across the hills.

Upstairs the bedrooms are extremely comfortable and most have delightful views. One twin room is smaller than the others and ideal for children.  It is a peaceful place, surrounded by wild country and no sounds of traffic. The area is simply beautiful and there are numerous fine beaches, a nature reserve on Handa Island , salmon and trout fishing that is available locally or a glorious drive to  see the spectacle of the romantic surrounding Summer Isles.

A wonderful place this and one where you will be sad to leave and long to return.

    Iolaire reviews
    This house is truly special. Sitting high above Lochinver, those who stay there have amazing views of Canisp and Suilven, and even peeks of the outher mountains. The inside is gracious, and there is so much room for ten people to move around in, from a two-room kitchen to a large dining room and comfortable living room. The utility room has a very efficient pulley-rack for drying clothes. The outside area could do with some furniture, which we were told had been ordered. All the bedrooms are spacious, many with supurb views. The manager at the local hotel was very responsive, the kitchen well stocked and the beds very comfortable. We were very happy with our stay, and recommend Iolaire with enthusiasm. It is a great location from which to explore the Scottish Highlands. We recommend the Lochinver Larder and The Caberfeidh for lunch and dinners, and ask when the live music is on - it was great! The local visitor center by the Lochinver Bunkhouse and Cafe is an excellent resource.
    Ms Bartholomew - August 2017
    We enjoyed our 5 nights in Iolaire. The house was comfortable, spacious and well equipped. Upstairs there are 3 bathrooms, one with shower over bath, and 2 ground floor WCs. We sat one evening in the drawing room marvelling at the views of Suilven in the changing light, and watching deer grazing in the grounds beside the house. The location is private but within a few minutes driving of Lochinver village, with its local grocery shops and restaurants - booking advisable. (The unique pies in Lochinver Larder are well worth checking out!). We would particularly recommend a day trip to Cape Wrath, the most north-westerly point of the British mainland; fly fishing with Stewart Yates of Assynt Fishing; and a visit to Clashnessie Beach. Assynt Visitor Centre was very helpful, while the Leisure Centre near the harbour was most welcoming to children on wet days!
