About this property

Nedd 0.2 miles.

A single-storey detached cottage with spectacular views nestled on a remote hillside above the tiny hamlet of Nedd, along the western shore of Loch Nedd, 2 miles south east of Drumbeg. Offering comfortable well-equipped accommodation, this property is ideal for families wishing to really get away from it all and explore the area. There is an orchard garden, a haven for children, and a large lean-to play area means that even if it rains, they're well catered for. The numerous spectacular beaches along this coast make it a perfect seaside holiday base, as well as something of a birdwatcher's paradise, with the famous puffin colony and bird sanctuary on Handa Island close by. For hill walkers, Munro baggers and climbers, you couldn't be better placed for exploring Quinag, Suilven, Canisp, Ben More Assynt, Benn Stack, Arkle and Foinaven. With salmon and trout fishing available by arrangement, this property has something to please the whole family.

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.

    Perfect spot for us nature lovers. The cottage has plenty space and we liked the different possibilities for a sit. The furniture is dated and you feel that in use. The wood stove is cosy but a disaster with the smoke when opening the door. But we enjoyed the stay.

  • Philip

    Great location, quiet, peaceful with great views. Updating required. We did not use the main living room as TV was not live, only DVD and video's. So we used the hallway area TV, but very small and BBC 1 had message most of the time so could not see 1/4 of the lower screen. Small TV in both areas not great for visually impaired. Not  very comfortable  seating in hall area. The cottage appears to be an inheritance property. This just has feel of owner just about to come home. Some people may like this. Currently no wifi but owner investigating for next season this will help with TV.

    Cottage well equipped. Sea view down the valley, plenty of local wildlife immediately around the cottage.
