From the very first moment of arriving at Assynt House, the grounds, house and inside of the house were just amazing. Graham and Elizabeth were amazing hosts, where nothing was too much trouble at all. The location of the house made it easy to get around to so many places so easily, and at the end of the day to come back to Assynt House and relax!
The rooms were clean, well equipped and comfortable, with the views from the bedrooms over the Highlands, which was just stunning!
The meals prepared by Graham & Elizabeth were excellent and just added to the overall stay at Assynt House!
Overall, we thought Assynt House would be a superb place for anyone looking for a large space to relax, entertain and explore in the Highlands!

We hired Assynt House as we wanted a beautiful venue for our wedding and also a holiday home that we could relax in with our friends and family for a few days either side of the big day. Assynt House easily met this criteria.
The House is immaculately presented and has everything you would need while in a home from home, with lots of little extra touches as well. The housekeeping is all taken care of and managed to the highest standard. The rooms are so comfortable it is a challenge to drag yourself away and go out. For those who manage it there is plenty to explore within a few minutes of the house. In one direction there is a deep gorge and in another Loch Glass with Ben Wyvis towering above it.
The owners will do as little or as much as you wish. Graham is a fantastic chef and if you get the opportunity to sample his cooking, take it!
In terms of a wedding venue. It was perfect for us. We had 40 guests and the main room was just the right size to accommodate them for a meal and the ceilidh band and dancing afterwards. The wedding itself was in the garden - yes, we got lucky with the weather - glorious sunshine and warm (in April), of course being Scotland it then snowed the next day! Elizabeth and Graham were an enormous help with our wedding preparations and removed so much of the stress from the process - they could not have been more attentive.
The whole experience was fantastic. We have some truly amazing memories of our time there and just wished we could have stayed longer.
We can't recommend the house enough.
