Area: This is a remote and beautiful area of Scotland offering peace and tranquility; a real escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Altandhu is a small village with a smokehouse and a hotel restaurant. In nearby Achiltibuie there is a general store which delivers groceries to the cottage. This is also the nearest place to get petrol. Windyhill is a perfect base for walkers; from strolling along the sandy Coigach Peninsula to ascending the breathtaking Ben More Assynt. Fishing trips by boat are available out to Loch Oscaig; for trout & salmon, and Loch Lurgainn for brown trout. Rods are available to rent and fishing from the Garvie & Beiste banks can be just as prosperous. Alternatively, Puffins & Cormorants can be seen around the rocks and Golden & Sea Eagles and Ospreys are a rare but definite possibility. Great location for those who enjoy walking, fishing, bird wathching or simply those who just want to get away from it all...!
