ELEGANT ACHILTIBUIE COTTAGE WITH STUNNING VIEWS OF THE SUMMER ISLES

Achiltibiue Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Elegant, spacious cottage with wonderful views of surrounding hills and islands

A beautifully presented croft style house situated in the heart of Achiltibuie.

Looking across to the Summer Isles, this very well equipped cottage offers delightful accommodation in a stunning and romantic holiday location. The cottage has full central heating, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sitting room with open fire place, dining room and kitchen and a large, private garden with ample parking. Freeview TV, DVD, iPod dock and WiFi. Surrounded by hills, lochs, islands and beaches, Achiltibuie is a popular holiday destination and a perfect base from which to explore the North West Highlands. Hill walking, kayaking, birdwatching, mountain biking, sailing, fishing or taking the local cruise boat around the islands are just some of the activities to enjoy in the area. Alternatively, just come to relax and enjoy the tranquillity of this extraordinary part of the highlands. Local restaurants include the nearby, award winning, Summer Isles Hotel, and two pubs serving excellent seafood

Welcome Pack: For your arrival we supply the following: milk, tea, coffee, sugar, olive oil, salt, pepper, dishwasher tablets, toilet paper, soap, logs for the fire and fire-lighters. Should you wish to pre-order supplies from the local stores, please get in touch and we can arrange this for you. It is worth noting that local shops are closed on Sundays. There is a huge Tesco in Inverness and a smaller one in Ullapool (25 miles) open 7 days a week. You may order newspapers to be collected at the local stores. You will receive a full information pack of all suppliers, activities, etc. on booking.

Dogs: We welcome dogs by arrangement. The village is a crofting community with many sheep roaming free. The garden is well fenced with a cattle grid at the entrance. There are many walks where dogs can run free, but through the village it is important to keep dogs on leads.

We are sure your dogs don't sit on the sofas or beds but if you think they might do so please bring your own dog blankets to cover our furniture.

Activities: Many visitors come to walk in the area. We supply a list of 25 tried and tested walks of different lengths along with maps. It is a great area for kayaking. If you do not have your own kayaks it is possible to go out with a local guide. Sailing and windsurfing are both available on Tanera, the largest of the Summer Isles. Day cruises around the Summer Isles are available from Achiltibuie and Ullapool. Achiltibuie Traditional Music School offers piping lessons amongst other instruments. The village hall has a wonderful sports hall for badminton, indoor football, table tennis for wet days and also hosts many ceilidh and other musical events throughout the summer. Ullapool has a great leisure centre including an excellent swimming pool. Golf is available at Ullapool's challenging 9 hole golf course.

A STUNNING COTTAGE IN AN INCREDIBLE POSITION

William's Cottage was superb in every respect.

The cottage was extremely spacious, very well maintained, and equipped with every home comfort and gadget anyone could possibly desire. The furnishings were very clean and ultra-comfortable. The décor was just superb. We gained lots of ideas for successful interior design!

The kitchen, so often the let-down of holiday cottages, couldn't be faulted - it was clean, with everything one could possibly need.

Located in a stunning position, overlooking the Summer Isles, we were treated to some truly amazing sunsets, late at night whilst sitting in the garden with a glass of wine - even after 11 pm. I look at my photos regularly to remind me just how special it was!

All the local shops/ facilities were most welcoming and very helpful. The boat trip from the local pier was brilliant.

The only thing lacking was mackerel! They just didn't turn up for my grandson and I. We'll be back to find them!

Definitely FIVE STAR.

William's Cottage is a wonderful house, very clean, well-maintained and tastefully furnished - we felt at home from the moment we first walked in. It was a lovely place to come home to after the excursions we went on during the day. The weather was lovely, so we enjoyed long walks and excursions into the countryside. Coming home, we frequently enjoyed a cup of coffee in front of the house, basking in the sun...The children also loved the big garden, which they explored and played hide-and-seek in.
When the washing machine broke down, the proprietors replaced it in no time, so that we could do our laundry.
We would definitely love to come back to this lovely cottage and its surroundings and we can absolutely recommend you to spend your holidays there.

William's cottage is a well maintained and equipped house set in a quiet spot which has spectacular views of the Summer Isles. It is comfortably furnished with adequate seating for a houseful of visitors. The website description and photographs are an accurate reflection of the cottage and the area.
Achiltibuie is also an ideal base for hill walks. The hinterland has some of the best views in Scotland
Whilst we didn't eat at the Summer Isles Hotel right next door, it has a good reputation for its food. We did have drinks from the bar at its outdoor seating area.
The Piping Centre's snacks and cakes are also good value.
Polbain Stores was very helpful when ordering newspapers. Achiltibuie Stores is good for a wide range of basics as well as some excellent local produce. Locally harvested scallops were particularly good.
Gerry, the owner, was perfectly efficient in her dealings with us.
We would confidently recommend William's Cottage to family and friends and hope that we can pay another visit before too long.

Exceptional cottage with stunning views

What a fantastic location, quiet with beautiful mountain and sea views. I could quite easily have spent the entirety of my holiday relaxing in the lounge or garden.

The house is extremely well maintained and equipped to the highest standards both inside and out. Gadget lovers will rejoice when they see a Bose Ipod dock and swanky SMART TV whilst the old skoolers will have plenty of board games to choose from. If the weather turns you won't be short of things to do inside of this cottage.

Overall a lovely cottage and well worth the 5 stars.
Owner's Response: So pleased you enjoyed William's Cottage. Thank you very much for your lovely comments.

We had a wonderful week at the cottage! It was beautifully remodeled, and it's quiet, remote location boasted spectacular scenic views! It was perfect for relaxing with a book as well as getting out and exploring the countryside! We hope very much to return someday.
