    “We had a fantastic stay at Hilltop.”

    The stylish modern interior came as a welcome surprise in what looked a fairly unremarkable property at first sight. The location about half way between the Clachtoll and Stoer beaches was perfect, and the fish and chip van was practically next door! ...

    The stylish modern interior came as a welcome surprise in what looked a fairly unremarkable property at first sight. The location about half way between the Clachtoll and Stoer beaches was perfect, and the fish and chip van was practically next door! As other reviews have said, there are a couple of old cars and a small cuttting/quarry on the way up to the house, but this is a rural area and that is not unusual. They certainly didn’t spoil our view and we didn’t feel the need for pictures on the walls. The antics of the various animals on the Croft next to Hilltop we’re fascinating and made for entertaining viewing. If you are interested in geology, the view from the house inland is wonderful, showing the change from the red Torridonian sandstones to the grey Lewisian gneiss. There were a couple of minor issues with the property, although these didn’t affect the quality of our stay. There was some perishable food left in a cupboard by previous holidaymakers; we would have expected this to be disposed of in the present circumstances. The shower didn’t drain well at first, although this was solved by putting some cleaner (provided) down it. The mattresses on the twin beds were quite hard and might not suit some people, me being one of them! One side of the double bed seemed rather lumpy. However, these are minor points and the place overall was very clean and comfortable. We would certainly stay there again.

About the location

LOCHINVER

Inverness 103 miles.

Set amongst the spectacular mountainous scenery of Assynt, Lochinver is a busy little fishing port with a regular fish market. The Visitor Centre houses a display on the history, geology and wildlife of the area. There is a pottery with craft shop and a range of other retailers. Lochinver also offers excellent fishing, while walkers flock to the line of distinctive and isolated mountains which run parallel to the coast. Heading north from Lochinver, and a couple of miles off the main road, is Achmelvich a tiny bay village with stunning white sands and turquoise blue water. The stunning views at the hamlet of Culkein, and the amazing seascapes at Stoer point make travelling the scenic west coast road a delight. A host of other natural attractions are within reach, such as Britain’s highest waterfall at Loch Glencoul, and the remote Kerrachar Gardens. A tranquil and picturesque base.
