Interaction with guests
Torbreck Croft House sits peacefully back off the single track B869 road down it's own good track. The B869 is on the Drumbeg loop of the NC500. There is lots to do! Visit the wonderful unspoilt white sandy beaches nearby. Achmelvich (2 miles), Clachtoll (4.5 miles) & Clashnessie (6.5 miles) are the closest but with some exploring you can find many more secluded gems. Travel a little further to Oldeshoremore and Sandwood Bay, both within an hours drive, or up to Balnakeil at Durness. Walk along the coast or across the hills and moors, the choice of routes is endless and wherever you go there are stunning views of Assynt and you may not see another person all day. From the cottage, you can walk for miles across the croft and beyond.

About the neighbourhood
There is a folder in the house with lots of information about the house and area that should help you settle in quickly.
Getting around
Climb spectacular mountains with walks or climbs of all grades - Stac Pollaidh, Suilven, Canisp and Quinag to name just a few. Visit prehistoric bone caves, a Pictish broch, ruins of 15th century Ardvreck Castle and many more historic sites. Take a boat trip to Handa Island for some bird watching, seabirds gather to breed here including puffins, or to the Summer Isles where Minke whale, porpoise, basking sharks and seals are not uncommon sightings, or from Kylesku to see the highest waterfall in Europe. Golden eagles may be spotted along the way. Try out sea kayaking. NorWest Sea Kayaking run day, 1/2 day, evening, multi-day and week trips in the area. No experience is necessary.
