The scenery in the north-west of Scotland is about as good as it gets… majestic mountains sweep down to a wild and miraculously unspoiled coast. It is one of the most remote and beautiful corners of the British Isles. There are abundant walking opportunities both along the coast and in the surrounding hills.

Hill House offers a unique self-catering holiday in an old croft house which has been owned and enjoyed by the same family for 35 years. It is simple but charming, and an ideal holiday retreat for those wanting to spend time outdoors experiencing this unique area of Scotland. The self catering cottage near Achiltibuie is full of character and charm with pieces of furniture made from driftwood and herring boxes. Hill House will appeal to anyone looking for an atmospheric place to stay with access to an unspoilt area of Scotland.

Accommodation:
Hill House does not contain the normal luxuries expected of Tourist Baord standards (TV, fitted kitchen, linen, cleaners, etc) but has everything you need to be very comfortable. A recently added conservatory allows you to admire the wonderful views of sea, islands and mountains.

Although the house is let out so that it pays its way and for improvements, it is very much a “lived in” home and not an impersonal rental house. Downstairs – kitchen, bathroom, sitting room and conservatory. Upstairs WC/basin, two bedrooms each with 2 beds (foam on peg-board – extremely comfortable). Some of the furniture is made of driftwood and herring boxes; but is has one or two elegant pieces of furniture as well!

Directions:
Altandhu is approx 2 hours drive from Inverness – 1 hour to Ullapool and 45 minutes from Ullapool. From Ullapool take the A835 Ullapool to Durness road and turn off about 10 miles north of Ullapool. Follow directions to Achiltibuie. The most obvious landmark is the Summer Isles Smokehouse in Altandhu which is on the road itself. There are three houses above the road behind the Smokehouse. It is the one in the centre with black metallic roof, white-painted walls and a wooden conservatory.

What's included:
Electricity in the summer. Duvets and pillows are provided but no linen so bring your own sheets, undersheets, duvet covers, pillow cases, bath mats, tea towels and bath towels. Coal/peat can be bought at the local shop.

Cost and availability.
The cottage is rented out year round - change over time is on a Saturday at noon. The owners request that the house is very clean ready for the next guests.
