Assynt is in Sutherland one of the most remote and beautiful parts of Scotland.
It is a land of steep mountains, trout filled lochs and spectacular sea views and cliff scenery. There are 5 small, utterly quiet, sandy beaches within 5 miles of the cottage. Within a 10 minute walk there is Porsht, a small cove ideal for swimming, canoeing or snorkelling. Locally, trout fishing, both brown and sea trout, deer stalking, birdwatching, whale watching, sea kayaking, mountain walking and climbing, are all available. Assynt is bisected by the Moine Thrust, a geological fault and the area along the fault is designated a Geopark, one of only seven in the UK. The nearby villages of Lochinver or Drumbeg have a full range of shops and restaurants. In the summer this is, nearly, the land of the midnight sun, it hardly gets dark. In the winter the mountains are snow clad and with a bit of luck with the weather the Northern Lights will flash across the skies.
