Description

Ghillies at Riverside is a bespoke handcrafted shepherd’s hut inspired by a traditional design and hand-crafted in the Highlands. Using high quality materials throughout, it is small but beautifully formed and provides a warm, cosy and relaxing place to stay in a wonderful setting. The shepherd’s hut is set in a large garden in a very quiet and secluded rural area.

Ghillies at Riverside is situated in the small hamlet of Inchnadamph in the stunning Assynt area of the North West Highlands. It is surrounded by hills, lochs and the River Traligill that flows just yards from the property where salmon and trout fishing is available (by permit, purchased locally).

A short walk from the riverside car park along the bank of the river leads to the country garden and up into the hut. The accommodation is open plan with a small kitchen area. The full-size double bed, set into the main window, has high quality linen and colour co-ordinated soft furnishings. At the far end of the hut is a shower room. Immediately adjoining there is a ‘wee ghillies’ which provides a useful space for boots and outdoor gear. The ghillies is very well equipped throughout and built to a high specification, with reclaimed, solid wood flooring and double glazing. As an addition, the owners have provided a fire pit which doubles as a barbecue for al fresco dining whilst overlooking the tumbling river.

The surrounding area is a haven for wildlife. Deer are regular visitors, and eagles, otters, pine marten and numerous small birds are all seen close by. The local area is renowned for its archaeology and geology and attracts interest from around the world. It is also an outdoor pursuit paradise with climbing, hill walking, kayaking, golf and cycling all available locally. The renowned North Coast 500 Route is just a stone’s throw away, which passes through some of the most dramatic scenery to be found anywhere in the British Isles. Beach 15 miles. Shop and restaurant 12 miles, pub 100 yards (open during the summer fishing season only).

Ghillies at Riverside can be booked together with Riverside Cottage (ref 29339) to accommodate up to 6 guests.

About the local area

Discover a wonderful variety of contrasting landscapes that will make a lasting impression, from the remote rock-hewn wilderness of far north west Sutherland to the green rolling coastal lands by the Cromarty Firth. Wherever you travel you're surrounded by some of the most outstanding remote natural beauty in Scotland.

The Highlands is not only blessed with wonderful countryside, there are also miles of dramatic coastline, with quiet pristine sandy beaches, picturesque sea lochs and a scattering of pretty coastal villages close to clear turquoise waters. This is a place to really enjoy `The Great Outdoors', with plenty of activities from mountain climbing and white water rafting to gentle family walks and mountain biking for all abilities.

This part of the British Isles is also a great place to see wildlife; unsurprisingly wildlife flourishes in this great wilderness and there are plenty of opportunities to get out and about on land and sea - take one of the many boat trips on offer for close encounters with seals, whales and dolphins or simply get out into the glens, hills and forests to see eagles, deer and maybe even the elusive pine martin to name but a few.

For a holiday at a more leisurely pace visit the region's many historical sites, ancient castles, stately homes and fascinating museums, learn about the Highlands rich history and culture, its clans and conflicts, the tragedy of the Highland Clearances and its role in the Jacobite risings.

Summer visitors to the Highlands (mostly July and August) may not want to miss the annual Highland Games, which are held across the Highlands and are a unique spectacle of athletic, dancing and piping events which should not be missed!
