Seaside Croft House
The Seaside Croft House is in the small crofting village of Achintraid, sitting on the very edge of Loch Kishorn with magnificent views across to the Applecross hills and the famous Bealach-na-Ba (Pass of the Cattle). Sit out on the upstairs balcony and enjoy views towards the mountains of Skye and also the fantastic sunsets. The surrounding area is rich in wildlife and there is an abundance of birds where the river joins the sea in front of the house and you can enjoy long forestry walks or climb the hill paths.
The area is very popular with artists and Kishorn hosts regular art classes. The village is fortunate to have an interesting village shop selling art, unique gifts and local crafts and a much loved Sea Food Bar serving produce straight from the sea.
Within easy reach is the fishing village of Shieldaig, Torridon with its famous mountains, Lochcarron - known for its weavers and golf course and Attadale Gardens, Plockton and Applecross - always beautiful and made even more popular through their TV fame. A little further afield but still suitable for a day trip is Eilean Donan Castle, Inverewe Gardens, the Isle of Skye and even Inverness.
You will find a variety of dining experiences in the surrounding area all with an emphasis on using the abundant local produce. If you prefer to eat at home, the Lochcarron butcher is renowned for best quality meat and local fish.
Take a well earned break in Achintraid and visit all these attractions, or on the other hand just come to Achintraid and relax in its beautiful, tranquil surroundings and take a stroll along its shores.
