“A great base camp for a stunning part of Scotland”

I usually spend a week out of every year hillwalking with my brother around North West Scotland. It rains. A lot. For this reason accommodation is pretty important and this house is one of the best that we have used.
The owner's description of the local area and attractions is accurate - if hill walking is your thing then Arkle and Ben Stack are pretty close at hand but it's also not that far to Assynt where you could spend a lifetime exploring the hills. If I were to recommend two days out it would be to spend a day ridge walking on Quinag and if the sun is out make that four mile hike from Blairmore to Sandwood Bay which is every bit as stunning as the guides would have you believe.

Here's the lowdown on the house itself - I'm giving the information here that I would be looking for based on the fact that if the weather is awful you might be stuck inside a lot -

The kitchen is properly equipped - amazes me how many of these houses don't have a frying pan, tin opener or tongs but have a cupboard full of cake stands - thankfully this is not one of those houses. It has electric cooker, microwave, washing machine and dryer, toaster and plenty of fridge and freezer space. The appliances are all pretty modern and the kitchen has obviously been fitted quite recently.

Bathroom/toilet (one room) are not fancy but are clean and fit for purpose.

Bedrooms are comfortable with ample bedding and plug in heaters (whole house is double glazed - still pretty unusual for a rental property).

Living room has a good sized flat screen TV/DVD combi and a selection of DVDs which were actually pretty decent (30 or so discs with plenty of kids titles). There is a dining table and desk and a couple of modern comfy two seater sofas. There is also a small CD player and a selection of books and boardgames. The Wi Fi is not super fast but is perfectly fine for email, google and Facebook (would struggle with streaming). I can't speak for other phone networks but I had a full signal with EE.

The conservatory is modern, comfortable and has a clothes line. It gets pretty warm when the sun is on it and wet clothing dries really fast (essential!)

Electricity is on a meter but it's not particularly thirsty - it was a pound or so a day which is pretty cheap as I used the washing machine a few times and the cooker is electric.

Over all it is clean, tastefully decorated and mercifully free of terrible ornaments and nic naks. It's an ideal and reasonably priced base camp for exploring an amazing location.
