Inchard Cottage is a cosy well equipped home in a great location for walkers, climbers, kayakers and nature lovers or simply those who wish to explore this wild and beautiful area of the Highlands. Whether you want an activity packed adventure or a chance for quiet reflection this is the perfect place to start. This is a year round destination where there is space and freedom to explore a unique landscape. Make time to escape and be revived by the wilderness which nourishes the soul.
We also remain open for key workers requiring accommodation in this area if they are travelling within the Scottish Government's restrictions current at the time of their stay.
The cottage is right on the loch shore at Rhiconich, 15 miles from Durness to the North and around 40 miles from Lochinver to the south. We have amazing mountains (Ben Stack, Foinaven and Arkle) in our back yard, Quinag, Suilven, Cranstackie, Ben Hope and Ben Loyal all within reach. The nearby beaches of Oldshoremore, Sandwood and Balnakiel are legendary, but there are many more lesser known treasures too.
For rock climbers there are the sea cliffs at Sheigra, and kayakers can enjoy the many sea lochs and inlets. If you want a less active holiday there are plenty of tranquil walks and picnic spots, fascinating geology, and opportunities to see the wildlife. Otters, seals and a huge variety of birds are easily spotted from the cottage, and you can also visit the sea bird colonies on nearby Handa Island.
The house is well situated with the village of Kinlochbervie just 4 miles away where there is a grocery shop, general store, filling station, Post Office and GP surgery and 2 Churches as well as the hotel and bar. Nearer still are a hotel and restaurant and a small local shop.
