Inverkirkaig and beyond

The Lazybed and the Batbox are privately located either side of the owner's house, on their 3 acre croft in Inverkirkaig, a coastal settlement, a couple of miles south of Lochinver and about 40 miles north of Ullapool. This area of the magnificent North West Highlands is known as Assynt, a geographically and geologically remarkable landscape. Many of Scotland’s most individual and charismatic mountains are close by and the stunning coastline stretches north to the white sandy beaches of Achmelvich, Oldshoremore and Sandwood Bay and south to the wild, rocky coves and shell sands of Wester Ross. A multitude of trout-filled lochs cover the hinterland and the beautiful River Kirkaig, with its excellent salmon fishing and waterfall path, is only 10 minutes walk from the door. Continue beyond the falls passing Fionn Loch and eventually reach the summit of Suilven, northern Scotland’s most iconic peak. Get into the Flows, Europe's largest peatland blanket bog and (globally) an extremely important carbon sink. Whether it's cycling, walking, kayaking, wildlife spotting, running, wild swimming or simply relaxing, this beautiful area of Scotland has it all.
