A holiday home on the stunning north west coast set amidst hills and islands.
A newly refurbished traditional croft house situated at the heart of Achiltibuie. Looking across to the Summer Isles, this very well equipped cottage offers delightful accommodation in a most stunning and romantic holiday location. The cottage has full central heating, 2 bedrooms, 2 luxury bathrooms, wood burning stoves in the kitchen/dining room and the sitting room and a wonderful sun room to while away the days. 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 tranquility of this extraordinary part of the highlands. Local restaurants include the nearby Summer Isles Hotel with one Michelin star, 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, shampoo, logs for the fire and firelighters. Should you wish to pre-order supplies from the local stores, please get in touch and we can arrange this with 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 stores.
Walks information: We supply a booklet of 25 tried and tested walks in the area. Local maps are supplied.
Dogs: We welcome dogs by arrangement. The village is a crofting community with many sheep roaming free. The garden is well fenced up to approx 4 feet high. 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.

Beautiful setting lovely cottage
The setting at Number Seven is perfect. An expansive vista of sea sky and beauty whatever the weather. You can drink it all in from the cosy sun room (which you won’t want to leave). The cottage is clean and very comfortable but more than that it has been given character with tasteful furnishing and wee touches. Nothing better than lighting the log burners n cosying up! We enjoyed lovely weather with not too much rain so walks at Reiff Garvie Bay and Stac Pollaidh But the walk just through the village and along the shore by the Broch was great too. Lovely seafood platter at the Summer Isles and the stores and locals were friendly n helpful. Return visit needed Thank you
Perfect location, spotless, warm, cosy great attention to detail.
We had a fabulous week in Achiltibuie, lovely walks and a great cottage to return to after.
There are a handful of eating places close by, each one serving tasty local food. Local people made us feel very welcome wherever we went.
I can't recommend the cottage highly enough.
Thanks Lisa - we are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay in Achiltibuie and Number Seven Cottage . We hope to see you again soon.
Wonderful panoramic seaview across to the Summer Isles.
The weather changes within in an instant but the views remain breathtaking whatever is going on outside. The cottage is very well appointed and certainly feels like a home from home. We enjoyed bracing walks on local beaches, climbed up Stac Pollaidh for 360 degree views and went on the Isabella trip across to the Summer Isles. We had fabulous food at the Albannach near Lochinver, but also thoroughly enjoyed the seafood at Salt and Am Fuaran.
We can't wait to return.

Beautiful cottage with incredible views
Delightful cosy cottage with stunning views across the bay. Cottage was very nicely decorated with lovely furniture and art and very well equipped. The beds were super comfy and we slept so well. Achiltibuie is an amazing place with some of the best scenery in Scotland and No 7 cottage was the perfect place to enjoy the views and explore the surrounding areas.
Clean, comfortable, stunning location. We loved our week. Everything we hoped and more.
