The mountains of Assynt are amongst some of the most striking looking mountains in Scotland.
From Kirkaig Lodge we can see:
Suilven: Assynt’s most popular mountain stands at 731 metres. Although not a Munro, Suilven is considered to be one of the finest mountains in Britain because of its sugarloaf appearance caused by a base layer of Lewisian gneiss with Torridonian sandstone on top.
Canisp: An 847 metre Corbet that forms part of the Moine Thrust. It gives magnificent views of the whole of Assynt and beyond!
The easiest access to Canisp can be found just off the A837 on the north tip of loch Awe.
Stac Pollaidh: A 612 metre Graham, Stac Polaidh’s jagged peaks add to an already beautiful landscape. If you don’t fancy an all day hike, Stac Polly is just the climb to do!
Follow the single track drive south towards Achilitiebuie and turn left heading for Ullapool. Stac Pollaidh is just a few miles further on the left.
Other mountains in the area include: Ben More Assynt and Conival (our only Munro’s), Quinag, Cul Mor and Cul Beag.
The list of other walks in Assynt is never ending! Just ask us for info on: The Old Man of Stoer, The Culag Woods, The Glencanisp loop and Leitir Easaidh to name but a few!
Lochinver has some fantastic places to eat including a Michel Roux Restaurant at The Inverlodge Hotel, the Caberfeidh Dinning Pub (owned by the Albannach) which serves fresh produce, Peets Place, a very highly recommended and friendly restaurant, and the Lochinver Larder famous for its pies.

The Private House Stay's Guide
The West Highlands is defined on PrivateHouseStays as the area from the Summer Isles north of Ullapool to Morvern in North Argyll. The coastline meanders round beautiful sandy beaches and wild low population inlets with idyllic little villages and winding roads taking in Gairloch, Torridon, Plockton & Kyle of Lochalsh, Knoydart, Mallaig, Ardnamurchan and Morvern. It is much recommended that this area is toured by car but it must be done by taking your time, stopping to admire the scenery, allowing a few hours to climb up the hills to get the best viewpoints or allowing yourself (or your children) time to run wild amongst the sheep or on the beaches
