I really loved my stay in Heatherbrae cottage. It is well equipped and has a private garden, where I spent some hours in the sun when I wasn´t out on one of my walks or excursions.
The cottage has a large kitchen with a seating area, bedroom, bathroom and lounge.
Lochinver has shops, restaurants, a bank and even a small police station, and the cottage is just a short walk away from Lochinver High Street.
What I did enjoy about the cottage was its charm. True, as some have commented, everything is not brand new, but in my opinion that is not necessary either.

Apart from uncomfortable seating this was very good self-catering accommodation. It was very well equipped and spacious for 2 persons. The shower curtain leaked but this was to be replaced. The situation is ideal being within short walking distance of the village centre. It had a lovely garden but watch out for the dreaded scottish midge. Mobile reception was sometimes possible within 3 feet of the garden gate. Finding a suitable Fresat TV channel was a pain and not as good as Freeview. The trout fishing from assynt anglers is superb value.
a bit disappointed
Left on 09/03/2012 for a stay in August 2012 | J. Hauzeur
Considering the price, we were a bit disappointed about the quality of the furniture : beds and armchairs were really old and for some persons could hurt the back (it was my case). The mossy garden offered to us another surprise: it was fully infested with tiny ticks, far more than in the moor after hours of walking ! We couldn't use it.

A lovely relaxing holiday

A beautiful old cottage set in a perfect location with a lovely garden, stunning views and just a few minutes walk from the village shops restaurants and pub. Inside the comfortable mix of old and new furnishings made us feel very much at home. Kitchen very well equipped and we especially appreciated the large fridge/freezer. Owners friendly welcoming and a pleasure to talk to with lots of helpful and interesting information which made our holiday seem extra special. Not at all intrusive but made it clear we could contact them at any time. We had a great time here and would love to go back.

Cosy idyllic little cottage in a beautiful highland village.
Left on 07/17/2012 for a stay in June 2012 | John Stewart Moir
This is an ideal cottage for a couple. Comfortable sized kitchen and cosy if slightly old fashioned sitting room. We would have preferred double bed but understand twin beds may suit other renters. Good sized garden and good outlook over part of village. Central for walks round both sides of village which surrounds river running into sea loch. Good restaurants and pub in village. Ideal location for exploring assynt which is spectacular
Traditional cottage in great location
Left on 07/17/2012 for a stay in June 2012 | Sandie C
Nice, traditional cottage - very comfortable. The location is fantastic - 5 minutes walk from the village centre, including a good pub (the Caberfeidh) and the Lochinver pie shop (highly recommended!) Ideal for anyone wanting a peaceful base to explore the mountains of the North-West. We had a wonderful time there.

Do not book this cottage

Stated off street parking ( a layby at the side of the main road also
used by other people.
30ft incline to the front door of cottage (not stated in details and would not be desirable for anyone infirm or difficulty in walking)
Old furniture/old carpets and curtains,kitchen and bathroom need refurbishing or a really good clean.
Self erected old shower curtain that only covers half a small bath,
difficult to have a proper shower especially when water runs along bath edge on to the floor because of poor shower curtain.
Neglected garden,grass very long only cut on the thursday of our stay
despite having good weather previous weeks.Garden furniture needed
really good clean before able to use.
Stated in details no pets.Very hot day on arrival open top of windows
to be greeted by two cats trying to gain entry(found cat bowls under
Obviously this cottage has never been inspected by Mackays and if as
they state they are not liable for anything they should not put
their name to cottage. Read more
