Achiltibuie on Scotland’s north-west coast is a place to unwind, relax and soak up the magnificent scenery. There is no urgency in anything that you do in Achiltibuie it is a place to unwind, relax and soak up the magnificent scenery. it’s all about relaxation and nature, the eagle souring high in the sky, catching a glimpse of the elusive otter or watching for whales.
Try some fishing on the many lochs, or walking the mountains, strolling on the quiet beaches and just listening to the sound of the sea. Achultibuie has a small shop and post office, café and of course the Summer Isles Hotel, with its restaurant and bar, the chef here has a michelin star. Whilst here you should visit the Hydroponicum and learn how to grow plants without soil!.
Ullapool is a busy tourist town and offers all the amenities one would need including a wide range of shops, supermarket, post office and petrol station. A selection of restaurants, cafes, bars, a leisure centre (swimming pool and fitness centre) and a Museum. The Cleidh Bar offers fine food at reasonable prices and for a cup of tea, visit Tea by the Sea on the harbour road.
From the ferry terminal boat trips are available one of which takes you by the Summer Isles to see the bird and sea life. North of Achultibuie then one place you should visit is the incredible Sandwood Bay. It is only accessible by foot via a 4 mile walk, but the scenery and beach are quite magnificent, so well worth the effort.
Lochinver a small fishing village north of Achiltibuie, is worth a visit, if only to visit The Lochinver Larder, they have the most delicious pies.

Lovely week in Achiltibuie. House a little too technical for us but did get to grips with it before leaving. Under floor heating in double room downstairs was not functioning very well.Hot tub a great success, less so the infrared sauna! We know the area very well and Stac Pollaidh was fantastic on Christmas Day.
Just returned from another weekend away with the girls at Stac Polly. What can I say just fantastic! House, Location, Hot Tub. Fantastic weather to top it off. Will return again next year. Can't wait.
We have just returned from a truly wonderful weekend away at Achultibuie. Stac Polly is definitely 5 star with every mod con available, hot tub, sauna, surround sound music system, WiFi etc. We had good weather, big blue skies and glorious sunsets not what we expected in November. The views over the Summer Isles from the large windows in the lounge are just stunning. The hot tub was a firm favourite, as was the sauna, great time was had by us all and we hope to return next year. We highly recommend Stac Polly and would like to thank the owners who have made this a very special place, well done!
