Cathair Dhubh Estate, Lochinver, Sutherland, The Highlands
Cathair Dhubh Estate offer luxury cottages in the Highlands which present you the rare opportunity to experience the unique atmosphere and many pleasures of this remote and beautiful area. We are situated at Lochinver in Sutherland.
We have five cottages available; Heather, Fern, Orchid, Myrtle and Thistle.
Cathair Dhubh looks out over Achmelvich Bay and is set against an awesome backdrop of sandstone mountains, with names that roll from the tongue of any walker – Quinag, Suilven, Canisp.
These ancient hills contain some of the oldest rocks anywhere in the world and they form quite a landscape.
In the hills along the coast, the wildlife and birdlife are as impressive as the scenery, black throated divers, otters, red deer, seals, porpoise and seabirds are but a few of the local inhabitants.
For those prepared to be extra vigilant there is the possibility of sighting minke, pilot and killer whales, dolphins and sea eagles. In spring and autumn Cathair Dhubh is on the flight path of huge skeins of migrating geese on their way to or from Iceland and the Arctic.
The coastal path from Achmelvich passes through on its way to the abandonned millstones at the old “click” mill at Port Altanabradhan where a peaceful and sandy cove is also to be found.
