Beautifully situated on the glorious Assynt Peninsula, this charming, south-facing detached cottage enjoys magnificent views over the green valley to the moors and is at the mid-point of the scenic single-track road which winds round the coast from Lochinver to Kylesku. The surrounding area offers excellent outdoor activities including walking, climbing, fishing, diving and boat trips.
