Remote location with the friendliest people
Finding the lodge can be tricky if you’re not familiar with the area, but it’s worth the search. Extremely friendly couple running the place, nicely furnished rooms and incredible scenery all around the lodge. Excellent food and warm, comfortable environment.

Fantastic, secluded, scenic Lodge
Situated by a loch and views of nearby Suilven and Canisp mountains. Lovely welcome from Sam and Rachel. Relaxing and peaceful spacious lounge with log fire and honesty bar. We had a huge ground floor room and huge bathroom. The bed was really comfortable and the bathroom well heated. Breakfast was superb. Good grounds to walk in and explore. We spent a couple of hours early evening sitting by the loch in the sunshine, admiring the mountains and the deer on the surrounding hills. Wonderful place to stay and support the community Assynt Foundation in protecting and promoting the lovely Glen Canisp.

a peaceful haven
Loved every bit of our stay. Spacious, peaceful with a beautiful setting. The long driveway was a bit rustic but it added to the charm. The young couple running the hotel were welcoming and provided a lovely breakfast. The lounge room was a great informal place to chat with other guests.

One if the NC500 favourites!
Beautiful hotel in the most amazing setting. Rachael and Sam were so very welcoming and knowledgeable about the area and Estate. They have a real project in their hands but have made a fantastic beginning. Look forward to going back when they are open for dinner too. Definitely worth adding into your accommodation schedule.

Great place to stay
We really enjoyed our stay at the Lodge during our short trip around Scotland. The location is superb: on the edge of a beautiful loch but close enough to Lochinver for dinner. The owners were very friendly and helpful, organising a dinner reservation for us and cooking a delicious breakfast. We'd love to stay again!
