More Information

The house stands on a working croft and it is forbidden to take dogs , however well-behaved, as agreed with the local crofters - we are sorry.

Comraich is situated 300 metres up an un-Tarmaced track.  The surface is  rough in places, however it is accessible with normal vehicles driven with care (although cars with an abnormally low suspension may find it difficult).

There is a large amount of glass (floor to ceiling wall of glass and glass doors) in Comraich, and visitors should be aware of this if they have young children.

Visitors are requested to leave the house as they would wish to find it - clean and welcoming.

Assynt is home to some of the most dramatic mountain scenery in Europe. The coastal road to Lochinver is a spectacular drive which weaves its way through traditional crofting communities. Inland there are hundreds of hill lochs which offer brown trout fishing, and magnificent mountain peaks. These mountains have long been celebrated by artists, poets, photographers, geologists, and countless hillwalkers. The area boasts a wide range of other natural and built attractions, many of which are featuered in Lochinver's Assynt Vistor Centre and Tourist Information Centre (where the friendly staff will help you); including a Pictish broch at Clachtoll. Some of these are the famous sea stack " The Old Man of Stoer ", Inchnadamph National Nature Reserve with its prehistoric Bone Caves (fossils of Pleistoncene ice age animals), and the Knockan Visitor Centre which has fascinating geological and nature trails. Visit Ardvreck Castle, the Falls of Kirkaig, and The Summer Isles. Handa Island, to the North, is a special summer visit to see puffins, terns and other sea birds, and the island-walk is well-worth the visit. See Links page.

Further North, visit Oldshoremoor, Sandwood Bay, Faraid Head, Cape Wrath (Norse for Turning Point), Smoo Cave .so much to see!

Weather: The weather is changeable because of the mountain and sea influences on the winds, etc; enjoy the long summer days and spectacular sunsets over the Hebrides.  The Gulf Stream's influence keeps the Autumn and Winter months mild, snows come and go but without much frost.  The Autumn and Winter skies can give amazing displays of the Northern Lights, which shimmer and dance above you.  And double rainbows over stormy seas for winter drama.  In the Spring and Summer the sea breezes bathe the coastal lands to chase the midges away!

Assynt Crofters Trust : The North Assynt Estate extending to 21,500 acres was purchased by the inhabitants from a foreign landowner in February 1993. This historic event fuelled the change in land ownership in the Scottish Highlands and laid the framework for the current community buy-outs.
