The area surrounding the cottage is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts and wildlife spotters, with grazing deer and basking seals frequent visitors to the vicinity. There are scenic walks straight from the doorstep across moorland and through the valley to suit all ages and abilities or hop in the saddle to pedal the coastal road and take in the spectacular views. Spot whales and dolphins as you discover The Old Man or Stoer (9.5 miles), an amazing 70-metre high sea stack or wander the tranquil banks of Loch Drumbeg (1.5 miles) and try your hand at trout-fishing. Challenge yourself with a hike up Suilven (15 miles), one of the most distinctive mountains in the area.

Spend the day at one of the region's beautiful beaches. The soft golden sands at Achmelvich are perfect for sandcastle building and beach games, with clear blue water to slip your toes into. With white sands and turquoise waters, the beach at Clachtoll (7 miles) is truly stunning. Visit the ranger's hut to explore the wildlife and geology of the area or walk along the headland for panoramic views.

Jump on board the ferry from Tarbet (22 miles) to the Handa Island Wildlife Reserve. Wander the island spotting the array of wildlife that make their homes on the dramatic cliffs, including the 100,000 seabirds that return each summer to breed. Watch the playful puffins and magnificent eagles soar overhead and spot otters splashing in the waters below.

Everything was great,,,, as was listening to the local stag,, calling one another,,, certainly, this is the ideal holiday from getting away from it all, secluded private... Surrounded by wildlife, where outside world seems,,, forgotton, as Internet is variable,, this also makes you calm and focused on nature. Ideal get away from it all, holiday.

A well equipped, comfortable and cosy cottage in a spectacular location. Due to the location (single track, passing places etc), car travel can be tricky and time consuming but the scenery and landscape more than compensate for any inconvenience. A great location to have a "get away from it all" holiday !

A cosy cottage surrounded by wonderful scenery and an abundance of wildlife. A perfect base for exploring the area. Friendly locals, great beaches and lots of dog walking opportunities. It is a working farm and we were lucky to see some sheep shearing in the back yard. Definitely a place to relax and get away from it all.

Wonderful farmhouse in a fantastic location. Road to property was an experience but worth doing it in daylight for the views. Deer every night in garden was great entertainment. Perfect for peaceful break..

This Property was really cosy and perfect in every respect. If getting away from it all is what you need, look no further. It doesn't get much more remote than this. We loved it.

Comfortable, clean and well equipped cottage in a stunning location. Seals and deer abound. Although remote, there is a good village shop in Oldany. Access is via a single carriageway road with ample passing places.

Very nice cottage. I know the area very well and have been going over 40 years and love it although first time Ive stayed in Drumbeg. You do need the car or bikes to do everything tho - as there are no walks or beaches right on doorstep so very dependant on driver. Even pub and shop is a 3 mile round walk. For peace and quiet it is superb.

This cottage is fantastic. Great location if you like to get away from crowds and enjoy the outdoors and wildlife. The cottage itself is spacious and very comfortable. Can't really fault it, but you do have to be prepared to use your car as it's located on single track road 30 minutes away from the main road and going in the other direction, 30 minRead moreutes from the nearest small town, Lochinver.
