Stoer Lodge is situated in the small hamlet of Stoer close to the fishing port of Lochinver. The property enjoys an elevated position with uninterrupted views of the white sandy beach of Stoer Bay, and the dramatic peaks of Stac Pollaidh, Suilven and Canisp. Newly renovated the property makes an ideal base for those wanting to explore the Assynt Peninsula.

The original part of the property dates back to the 17th Century and in 1868 was extended to create a village school. The school relocated many years ago however, the property today retains many original features such as the panelled walls, timber flooring and double height ceiling that can be found in the dining room and sitting room.

The property is all located on the one level, has been equipped to a high standard throughout and furnished with an eclectic mix of modern and traditional furniture.  

The main door of the property opens into a porch with doors to the dining room and sitting room. The dining room has a table and seating for ten and the sitting room comfortable sofas. From the dining room a door leads to the main corridor off which the remaining accommodation is situated.

The property has four bedrooms; the master with its king size bed, enjoys double aspect views over Stoer Bay, as does the double. The two twins are located to the rear of the property and enjoy views of the surrounding mountains. A bathroom with a traditional style roll top bath; and the well equipped kitchen with direct access to the garden area complete the facilities.

We had a wonderful family week in Stoer Lodge. We were so lucky with the weather and we found the lodge so comfortable and clean and in a great location to explore this beautiful part of Scotland! It is quite special to be able to wake up and go down for a dip in the sea or sit out watching the sea and wildlife. It was a great recharge for our busy lives. We would love to return. Thank you!

We had the most wonderful relaxing time at Stoer Lodge in September. The location is perfect, and many days were spent swimming in the sea and lazing around the house. The only downside was that the heating was not working, and we never received a response to our message but thankfully we had the log burner.

We loved our week at Stoer Lodge. This cottage has loads of character and history. There's some lovely touches - the old school chairs, the photos and many of the original features. The cottage is well equipped and was spotlessly clean. Stoer beach is easy to access, there's some fabulous walks and the assynt region definitely worth the long drive north.

Lovely spacious and well-equipped property with a safe enclosed garden sitting immediately above a sandy bay which you will have to yourselves most of the time. Don't underestimate distances! Roads are narrow, winding and slow. Kylesku is an hour; only Lochinver with its heavenly pies is close by. If you like it remote you'll love it. Only negative to mention is the single bathroom and toilet which might be a significant challenge if a full party of 8 across two families.

We had a wonderful break at Stoer Lodge- what an amazing setting- out the back gate and onto the most beautiful beach. The property sleeps 8 in 4 bedrooms. There were only 2 of us and our dog so plenty space. Only having one bathroom might prove an issue for larger groups. The character of the old schoolhouse remains- but I feel that the property would benefit from some TLC- broken light fitting- faulty dimmer switch- protruding nail on floorboards-loose tap- kitchen cupboard front missing None of this detracted from our holiday- just pointing out that some repairs should be done to ensure others have a great holiday

This was the third time that we stayed at Stoer Lodge. What a wonderful house in a beautiful place. Still some reservations. Upon arrival (6 pm in November) everything was completely dark, not really welcoming. Fortunately we were able to find the key safe from last year. The lock of the 'front door' (sea side) is broken and does not open from outside to inside. The lock between corridor and living room is blocked and can hardly be opened. There are useless junk in various cupboards in the house. This certainly applies to the kitchen cabinets. The sliders in the kitchen were not clean inside. The aluminum cooking pots are dirty and worn (and unhealthy to cook in). The pans in stainless steel are OK. Crockery and bedding are in order. But above all, what a wonderful house!

The Location and the Surroundings are great - Excellent views to the beach - close to street (a lot of Motorcyclist - new Route 500...) - that would everything be o.k. - but the Lodge/Cottage/ old Schoolhouse could be much cleaner - everything was quite muddy when we arrived and not clean at all. Very old everything incl. dirty sofa's, uncomfortable beds - we are sure, with a clean, refurnished house, we would have enjoyed our stay.

Location location! We have always wanted to stay here, whenever we have passed it on previous visits to this part of Scotland we have admired it. This cottage is full of character and original features, and apart from the high ceilinged living space cosy cosy warm with the oil heating. The living room space warmed up with the wood burner lit in the evening; it was February! Great bath too, and loads of very hot water. As there was only two of us we slept in the only bedroom with a full sea view, and we slept so soundly the bed being ultra comfortable! There are only two not so good things - the shower is not very powerful (we wondered why there is not a mains shower) and the dining chairs we found very uncomfortable. Oh and the Welsh words above the fireplace was a bit odd given we were in Scotland...but apart from these fairly minor things that stop me from saying 'Excellent' Stoer Lodge is very homely and kind of envelopes you in its embrace so you don't want to leave! It's full of atmosphere and history, and perfectly located right on the beach. We saw some fabulous sunsets from the garden. That was another definite highlight. We would come again, but I think with a few tweaks it could be more luxurious.

Beautifully located, only on a hill. The sea, the pebble beach, the old cemetery, the tiny village nearby. Wonderful starting point for long trips. Charming, old house, refurbished with love and a great sense of beauty. Spacious, light and cozy. Every room, every corner a picture. Each window gives a different view of the beautiful surroundings. A house to love. A bit of a shame that, on arrival, the whole house was pitch dark and freezing cold. The kitchen is due for renovation, the kitchen cabinets were messy. Dinnerware is in order. Stoer Lodge exceeded our expectations. We left with regret, after a wonderful week.

We stayed at Stoer Lodge last week and thoroughly enjoyed it. The location is wonderful, there is a gate from the garden straight down to beach so perfect for kids. The lodge is lovely, characterful, clean and tastefully decorated. Very comfortable beds and nice bedding. There is only one bathroom/loo so with a full house this was a downside. The area around Stoer is lovely, beautiful beaches and scenery. Will definitely return and would love to stay in Stoer Lodge again. Highly recommend.

This is a wonderful part of Scotland. If you like being out of the way then this is the place to go. Beach on your back door step, the enclosed garden is also much bigger than the pictures make it seem, plenty big enough for an energetic border collie to run around in. All bedding and sofa cushions are feather so if you are allergic I would advise bringing your own bedding/ pillows. The internet is of good enough quality (about 1-2mb) for searching for local attractions/ driving routes etc. The lounge/ dining room is a brilliant size and would easily fit 8 people (we were only in a group of 4). Again the pictures do not show how large this room is. There is a huge dining table that would comfortably fit 8 and probably more. There were basic things like salt, pepper, oil, various spices left there when we arrived which was useful but I would advise doing a decent sized shop at Tesco in Ullapool on your way in, you can get most things though from the Spar in Lochinver There is a bigger beach 5 mins up the road, Clashnessie Bay, perfect for dogs to have a big run, also we saw seals here swimming around close to the shore and also laying on the rocks over to the right of the bay.

What a week we had at Stoer Lodge! All the family gathered for a rare get together and were thrilled when we saw our home for the week, so comfortable and welcoming, with every possible need supplied for our stay. Huge sitting room, with large table for family meals and a log burner to gather round at night. However, hardly required, as we chose possibly the best week in Assynt this summer. Wall to wall blue skies, with the temperature climbing to 23 degrees at one point. And the lodge was a perfect base for all the beautiful beaches, walks and Munro bagging the family enjoyed. Will be back!

A wonderful week at Stoer Lodge, pure relaxation. Beautifully presented in a traditional school style, yet very homely and cozy. You really couldn't find a more perfect location over looking the almost private, stunning white sand beach! The coastal line all along the area is beautiful and Stoer Lodge provides the comfort from which to explore it. Make sure you stock up on provisions though!

Stoer Lodge is a beautiful, well equipped property and provided the perfect getaway for my other half's unwelcome 40th birthday celebrations! Setting off Chinese lanterns in complete darkness from the beach at midnight was truly magical and we will definitely return soon. We visited in January and unfortunately had to leave a day early as the weather really closed in. Thinking back, we should have allowed ourselves to become snowed in, there could be worse places to get stuck!

The holiday was a family get together with 7 of us and 1 dog.I know we were lucky with the weather but also felt we were lucky choosing the property Stoer Lodge. It does look quite impressive overlooking the small beautiful bay. The coal fire gave off plenty of heat for the large living room and there was a cosy feel to the place.Everything you need is provided for and you feel comfortable in the surroundings. Great place, great location.
