The Meeting House
Kishorn, near Lochcarron, Wester Ross
This is one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland and Kishorn is a great place from which to explore the west coast Highlands. It's only 1.5 hours drive from Inverness with Skye, Applecross, Shieldaig and Torridon all under an hour away. The Meeting House is virtually on the sea shore, tucked away on a single-track road, yet only 1/2 mile from the NC500 route - the location is stunning as are the views.
You can walk for miles direct from the house not seeing anyone all day once you get into the hills or coastal paths. Serious walkers can get to Torridon, with Beinn Alligin, Liathach and Beinn Eighe (all over 3000ft) in about half an hour by car. The shore in front of the house has a good population of wildfowl, waders (oyster catchers, ringed plover and turnstones are numerous) and other sea birds including eider duck, herons, mergansers and terns. Seals are often visible from the shore, and otters occasionally make an appearance. In the summer months, you could see dolphins and porpoises and hear the black-throated divers overhead as they fly to feed from their nests on the hill lochans inland. The Beinn Eighe Nature Reserve is a short drive away.
Fishing and kayaking/boating opportunities are everywhere (you can launch small boats and kayaks right in front of the house) and artists are spoilt for choice. Alternatively, you can simply relax in comfortable and beautiful surroundings and wander up to the Kishorn Seafood Bar for delicious lunches and dinners of local seafood.
