Description

Loanan is a detached, single-storey cottage situated amidst dramatic scenery in the heart of picturesque Sutherland. Set in its own garden grounds that lead directly down to a tumbling Scottish burn, it offers peace and seclusion in a superb setting. The main living room is very attractively presented, with patio doors opening onto the garden and offering uninterrupted views across the hills towards Loch Assynt. There are two pretty cottage bedrooms, with colour coordinated soft furnishings throughout. The modern kitchen/dining room is very well equipped, with plenty of dining space for up to four people.
Loanan is situated in the little hamlet of Inchnadamph, surrounded by some of the most dramatic and amazing landscapes to be found anywhere in the British Isles, with hills, lochs, rivers and mountains as far as the eye can see. It is just off the North Coast 500 Route which encompasses some of most incredible scenery and remote unspoilt areas in Scotland. The immediate area is a haven for wildlife. Deer roam close to hand and eagles, otters, pine martin and buzzards are all seen in the region. The local area is of significant archaeological and geological interest; a trip to the nearby bone caves is a must.
There is a hotel just a few yards away, which provides meals and drinks to non-residents throughout the summer season. For more comprehensive facilities, the charming village of Lochinver is just 13 miles away. This pretty fishing village with its natural harbour has a good selection of restaurants, two pubs, small shops and cafés. The Inver Lodge Hotel perched on the hillside above the village has a renowned restaurant, Chef Roux, run by the legendary Albert Roux; ideal for a spot of lunch whilst admiring the stunning views across the bay. Sailing, canoeing, kayaking, mountain biking, hill-walking, fishing and climbing are all enjoyed locally. Situated at the head of Loch Assynt, there are superb walks and climbs direct from the house and the dramatic peaks of Suilven, Stac Pollaidh, Canisp, Quinag and Ben More Assynt dominate the skyline of this wild and unspoilt Highland region. Beach 13 miles. Shop 13 miles, pub and restaurant 100 yards.

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!
