Town: The small crofting township of Nedd (An Nead - Gaelic for nest) is situated on the north coast of the parish of Assynt. Ancient native woods surround Nedd, which overlooks Loch Nedd, a sea loch that’s home to a wide variety of sea birds, seals and otters which appear occasionally. The famous colony of puffins at Handa Island is nearby. Nedd is an excellent base for hill walkers and climbers who are keen to explore Quinag, Suilven, Canisp, Benn Stack, Arkle, Ben More Assynt, and Foinaven. Trout and salmon fishing and stalking is available by arrangement on the many hill lochs for fishing enthusiasts. The Stoer Lighthouse, the renowned garden of Kerrachar, the caves of Assynt and the incredible geological feature of 'Moine Thrust', are all within easy reach of the holiday destination of Nedd.Read more

A lovely peaceful place to get away for rest and relaxation. The house is well equiped and spacious. Our dog loved the place. Plenty of wildlife and even had the deer at the fence one evening. Great beach just along the road.

We arrived in the dark so the sight of Deer and badgers in our headlights was a wonderful sign.
The cottage is very secluded, has marvellous views and is very cosy.
For the birders amongst you, the variety of birds viewed from the cottage was wonderful including Redpoll, Siskins and Buzzards.
The garden was perfect for a lively two year old and the whole area was wonderful for his grandparents.
You have to like the wide open spaces to like Recroy but we do and for us it was perfection!

Clean and tidy, all facilities that one would require. Spacious yet cosy.Location is ideal for exploration of the North West of Scotland. The amenities were close by (1 Mile)and you could purchase all you needed to remain at Recroy without having to go off to the bigger towns.
Liked very much the family time together with no TV to disturb us.
Need to inform potential residents that the shop closes on a Saturday at 4pm.

We had an absolutely wonderful time at Recroy. We set off every day from the cottage, either by foot, car or on bikes. No matter what direction you head, the scenery is outstanding. A short drive by car and you can be on some of the most beautiful beaches, white sands and a deep blue sea, even though we were blessed with good weather we had the beaches to ourselves. The cottage was wonderful, very spacious and had everything we needed. (Two bathrooms was brilliant especially with two teenagers). All of a very high quality and with the availability of a washer, dryer and dishwasher making life easier for all. They have a good video library and lots of books and games which we all enjoyed in the evening and although it was a warm week and we didn't really need to light a fire we couldn't resist it and it added to the atmosphere. The gardens were lovely, full of fruit trees and gave quite a bit of space for the dog being well enclosed. This is a remote location which suited us just fine but there is a pub that serves good food and an excellent village shop at Drumbeg. We wanted a holiday where we could get away from it all and have time together and Recroy ticked all our boxes. To see so much wildlife was amazing, on the night of our arrival we were stopped by a Stag sauntering across the road in front of our car, quite an experience. Seals came to watch the kids swimming and we were lucky enough to watch a family of Otters playing along the shoreline. Our teenagers, and dog, loved the adventure of it all, being able to just set off on bikes or climb the hills (with maps and compass) straight from the cottage door. What was really nice about the cottage is the spaciousness, it has enough room for everyone to spread out. We only booked it for a week and we didn't get around to doing everything that everyone wanted so we definitely will be going back.

As a family, we could find no fault with the service at all. The cottage was everything the brochure promised and more! It was light, spacious and fairly isolated - exactly what we wanted. The cottage was spotless and had everything we needed for our stay.
Nedd itself has only a few houses scattered about and there are no shops, restaurants etc but the location is absolutely ideal for exploring the north-west of Scotland, which is SPECTACULAR! This is the ideal place for a "get away from it all" break. Our children were aged 17, 14 and 10 at the time and they absolutely loved our time at Nedd. None of us wanted to leave! We were surprised at the amount of little restaurants, inns etc which we saw when we travelled about during the week. Also the locals are very friendly wherever you visit. We could never tire of the whole are and all it has to offer.
The only comment we would make regarding what could be improved upon re the cottage, would be the garden, which could be fabulous with a little care and attention.

I love Assynt and this is the best place I have stayed there. A characterful building, stocked with a great collection of books. Loads of space and well maintained. A few meters away is a loch stuff full of wild brown trout and a £20 week long ticket from the Assynt crofters gets you access to more lochs than you could visit in a year.
The scenery is stunning, the weather always beautiful (even when its raining).
If there is a better place in Europe than Assynt for those who love the outdoors, nature, the hills and the sea, then in all my travels I haven't found it. And this is one of the nicest places to stay whilst enjoying your visit.
remote, warm, great views, well equipped, perfect for what we ne

Met no-one - so remote that the key was left for us but that was fine by us! It was clean and well equipped but because of its remoteness we might have appreciated a 'welcome pack' of basic foodstuff. If wwe had been given the address of the shop in nearby village we could have arranged for one ourselves. The views of the coast and surrounding moorland were stunning, we were visited by a herd of wild deer and watched buzzards from the living room window. We feasted on fruit from the orchard and were comfortable and warm.
