Nestling in a stunning and tranquil rural location, this fantastic secluded farmhouse is a perfect destination for anyone wanting to enjoy a picturesque and relaxing Highland retreat.

In a peaceful, secluded location close to the charming village of Lochinver, you’ll find this beautiful traditional farmhouse that would be perfect for a family or group of friends holidaying together, along with their best four-legged friend. With two good-sized bedrooms and comfortable living and dining areas, this house feels like a haven of rest and relaxation. Here you’re literally surrounded by miles of traffic-free countryside making this property an ideal base for walkers, cyclists and nature lovers alike.

The farmhouse is cosy and welcoming with traditional features such as a woodburner in the lounge and wooden flooring, sitting comfortably alongside modern sofas and soft furnishings. The separate dining room is a wonderful space to gather and discuss the day’s adventures over an evening meal, with the pretty sash windows providing diners with the most incredible show of nature. A drying room adjoins the well-equipped kitchen and is an ideal place to keep muddy wellies and wet dog leads. Upstairs you’ll find two comfortable bedrooms with beds perfectly positioned to be able to drink in the views over the green valleys to the moors, the perfect spot for a morning coffee.

Situated on the glorious Assynt Peninsula, this property is at the mid-point of the single-track road that winds itself around the coast. After you’ve unpacked and made yourself at home, you’ll want to head straight outside to stretch Fido’s legs and may just be rewarded with a glimpse of a basking seal or a deer grazing whilst on your stroll. The village of Lochinver is just 12 miles away and was named by The Guardian as Scotland’s new foodie hotspot, with an award-winning home-made pie shop selling the most delicious sweet and savoury pies.

Cottage is in a lovely location, quite remote, very peaceful and quiet. It was very clean, warm and plenty of hot water. The garden not enclosed and signage says dogs must be on a lead at all times, lots of sheep about. The scenery is beautiful and we enjoyed exploring the area. Short drive to beaches which are stunning. 3 mile drive to nearest shoRead morep and the local hotel next to the shop was only open to non residents so 12 mile drive to nearest pub in Lochinver.

The farmhouse is prettier in real life. We had a wonderful week exploring the Assynt peninsular, after my son recovered from the lack of WiFi! A perfect family holiday in the sunshine. The views surrounding the farmhouse are stunning.

This is a beautiful cottage in a stunning location. It was a pleasure to return to after a day walking or playing at nearby Clashnessie beach. The immediate vicinity of the house was great for exploring too, with a stream at the bottom of the drive for playing in. Its a great base for exploring Assynt and I would go back like a shot.

Oldany Farmhouse is easily the best rental property we have ever stayed in. Lovely setting, beautifully refurbished, well- furnished, comfortable, spacious, well-equipped, abundant hot water, efficient central heating and everything works - although TV a bit tricky to operate! Ideally situated for exploring NW Scotland, stunning beaches nearby, almRead moreost deserted in June, and the Lochinver Larder serves fantastic fresh seafood daily, as well as their famous pies.

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..
