The Cathair Dhubh Estate is tucked into the rugged Sutherland coastline on the NC500 between the villages of Lochinver and Clachtoll. Nestling in the heart of the spectacular Assynt countryside, it is a haven for wildlife lovers, hikers, fishermen, photographers and outdoor enthusiasts, not to mention those families looking for white, sandy beaches and crystal blue waters.
“De locatie is prachtig en alle huisjes hebben een fantastisch uitzicht op zee. Er is veel ruimte rondom hen, en toegang tot een kleine inham ideaal voor het lanceren van kajaks en kano's, een klein strand en wandelingen langs de kust / looppaden naar de nabijgelegen stranden van Clachtoll en Achmelvich. De huisjes zelf zijn echt goed ingedeeld en uitzonderlijk goed uitgerust met veel koelkast / vriezer, en alle potten, pannen en apparatuur die nodig zijn voor groepen. Kate was een geweldige gastheer, gemakkelijk te contacteren en snel te reageren.”
