View Hill


Sleeps 4   pets welcome


View Hill is a traditional croft house in the scenic village of Elphin with uninterrupted views of Sutherland. Sleeps 4/5



Sitting on top of a pretty hill, this charming white Highland home has lovely open views and comes with a gentle pace of life, located in the small, friendly community of Elphin between Ullapool and the fishing port of Lochinver in the Scottish Highlands.

View Hill is a warm deceptively spacious cottage and ideal for a family or group of friends who want a ‘get away from it all location’ amongst fabulous scenery. From your cottage you will see sheep and donkeys grazing and the area is one of natural unspoilt beauty.

The accommodation is characterful and has been well modernised with a large kitchen and adjoining utility room. Breakfast can easily be enjoyed at the kitchen table with yet another view.

Touches of tartan, sheepskin throws and red deer antlers found on the hill make the sitting room cosy while the sun porch provides plenty of opportunity for bird watching or a relaxing place to read.

Not only is the dining room a place to dine but the table is large enough to have a game of table tennis, why not challenge the family to a competition?

Completing the accommodation are three bedrooms, a convenient ground floor double, a single and large double room with a single bed upstairs, the bathroom is also on this floor.

Fenced lawned garden surrounds the cottage making it a wonderful play area for children and there is ample parking for three cars.

Known for hill walking you couldn't be better situated for climbing and Munro bagging, explore Quinag, Suilven, Canisp, Conival and Ben More Assynt, Arkle and Foinaven. Or try salmon and trout fishing nearby, permits can be bought locally; this highland home has something to please everyone.

Spot a buzzard or eagle, build a sandcastle, pat a Highland cow (carefully), catch a waterfall or try your hand at fishing. Whatever you do you'll be sure to have an amazing holiday in an amazing place!

Hugely enjoyable

“We had a hugely enjoyable stay at View Hill. The house was a great base from which to launch our adventures. We conquered Ben Mhor Coigach and went to Sandwood Bay and stuffed ourselves with pies from Lochinver Pie Larder!
