The ideal place to get away from the stresses of everyday life!  Comraich is gaelic for sanctuary.

Just the perfect atmosphere to paint those pictures, begin the book you always meant to write, shoot the best photographs, or just sit ........

You can enjoy this magnificent view too. You are in the North West of Scotland; situated up the dramatic coastline above Lochinver in West Sutherland.  The cottage is sited above Maiden Loch, and the B869 on one of the most picturesque stretches of the North Coast 500.

The birds of Sutherland are everywhere arctic terns, fulmar, puffins, oystercatchers, kittiwakes, divers, gannets, eider duck, ptarmigan, grouse, moorland songbirds, and waders in abundance.  Also birds of prey, including the resident buzzards, also  white-tailed sea eagle & if you are lucky maybe even osprey or the iconic golden eagle.

You can also see red deer in the garden, and  badgers, otters, seals, dolphins, whales, etc. in the vicinity.

Walks through the rough countryside and peatlands, and along the rocky shore are almost without limit. The fertile machair land is rich in flora and alive with colour in the Spring. Mountain walking or scrambles are some of the best in Scotland with so many beautiful mountains to explore; these include Suilven, Arkle, Stac Pollaidh, Glas Beinn, Conival, Coigach, Ben More Assynt.  Assynt has been designated  as the Northwest Highlands UNESCO Global Geopark -  Scotland's first Geopark & attracts geologists and fossil collectors, as well as climbers and walkers.
Washed by the warm waters of the Gulf Stream, Assynt has a better claim than most parts of the British Isles to a unique collection of plants and animals.

Explore the sheltered rocky parts of the coast, or the beautiful sandy bays. White sandy bays of crystal turquoise sea are to be found at Clashnessie, Clachtoll (stone with a hole), and Achmelvich (field of the sand dunes).  Nearby sandy Clachtoll is sheltered with rock pools so ideal for families to explore and play. It is also good for windsurfers and kayakers.

Photography? There is so much to capture in the changing moods of the dramatic landscape. How about the occasional deer passing below the cottage or along the skyline? Highland cattle grazing by the loch?   Or soaring buzzards or golden eagle? Grey seals in the surf? Maybe a sea otter?  Or a passing school of dolphins, or porpoises - Minke whales in summer.  Or the Northern Lights? Or unpolluted starry night skies?.........
