Surrounded By Wildlife

With some of the most diverse bird life in the UK, this area is an excellent location for avid bird watchers. Others may be seeking a glimpse of rare species of wildlife like red deer. And keep an eye out for sightings of dolphins, seals and porpoises as you walk along the coast.

Enchanting Comforts

In some ways a holiday spent at Cruachan Holiday Home feels as if you have gone back to a simpler time. Keep toasty with the wood fire stove while reading a good book. Throw feed out and watch the different species of birds enjoy a meal from the large viewing windows in the main living area. Take a walk out of the back gate for a fantastic view of the ocean while enjoying the sounds of the wind. Enjoy one of many hikes through the woods, along streams and rivers or walk to the Inverkirkaig shore and listen to the crashing waves.

About Us

For almost two decades our family has been enjoying living and vacationing at Cruachan, as well as, enjoying the many excellent restaurants and outdoor activities in and around Lochinver, Ullapool and Kylesku (click here for more information). In 2016 my wife’s father decided to move back home to be closer to us and in 2017 we decided to share Cruachan, the home we love so much, with others.
