A quiet and comfortable base by the sea and away from the road. Ideal for hillwalking, fishing, wildlife watching, or just getting away for that long weekend. You can even bring the dog! Beautiful sea views from both spacious guest rooms.
Panoramic views across the Minch to the Western Isles and south over the split rock of Clachtoll to the Torridon Mountains can be enjoyed from all the rooms in our family home.
Stac Fada, named after the sea stack in Stoer Bay, sits on the hill above the bay, along a private lane, midway between the wilderness and the sea. A short stroll takes you down to the beach, where otters emerge to bathe in the burn and dazzlingly white gannets perform their feeding aerobatics. A wander through our garden gate leads you through wild scented orchids into the wilderness, home to red deer, buzzards, red-throated divers and recently two golden eagles. Wonderful views over Canisp, Suilven, Stac Pollaidh, Cul Mor and Quinag can be seen from here.
From our sunroom you can see local fishing boats coming and going from Lochinver and use our telescope to spot passing dolphins and Minke whales. In spring and autumn, migrating geese and swans are an unforgettable and noisy spectacle.
There are numerous hill lochs within walking range, the nearest just 5 minutes away. Your host is a keen fly fisherman and expert beach fisherman and will be delighted to direct you to the best spots.
For evening meals you have a choice of hotels, restaurants and bars serving good food a short drive away. We can reserve tables for you if you wish.
Assynt is internationally renowned for its fascinating geology, hill-walking and bird-watching and is a popular destination for fly-fishing enthusiasts, photographers and artists: a very special place. Maybe, like us you will never want to leave!
