Cala, Nedd near Drumbeg

Sleeps 4 - Wifi - Wood Burner - Sorry no pets

Cala is an exceptional home that sits on a hill, nestled in nature, with dramatic views of Loch Nedd and the magnificent Quinag mountain. Its design was inspired by a desire to create a structure to blend in with the untamed, rugged landscape of Assynt yet provide a warm and comfortable haven sheltered from the sometimes extreme weather conditions of the region. 

The simple yet striking charred larch exterior is mirrored in the simple clean lines and functionality of the interior space.  The open plan living area and master bedroom enjoy breathtaking views. Large windows and skylights allow the sun to saturate the house with light and warmth.  There is a wood burner as well as infrared central heating. The kitchen is equipped with top of the range appliances. An outside deck provides a space for al fresco breakfasts when the weather permits.

The material used to make this modular house is called CLT. It is a form of compressed timber and is highly insulating. The house was designed by Mary Arnold Forster and was featured in the More 4 TV series, Impossible Builds.

A perfect retreat from a busy life. Cala is a very individual property in a beautiful spot with stunning views of the Scottish Highlands and sits just above Loch Nedd. We found the space so relaxing with plenty of space, large windows and a well equipped kitchen. The well stocked local store at Drumbeg not only offered food and drink for our weeks stay but were welcoming and offered us local knowledge which complemented the information at the house. We enjoyed mountain and coastal walks, a host of wildlife and cosy afternoons at home.

We had the most wonderful time at Cala. Getting there already is an experience of its own, on the winding narrow road from Kylesku. The location and view are simply amazing, you can look out of the window the whole day and just watch the changing scenery. The interior is tastefully put together with all you need. Cooking is a pleasure, the bed really comfortable, bathrooms are equipped with showers to spend a day under.... I wouldn't recommend it for 4 people though, as there is little space to store clothing etc. Being only 2 we used the second bedroom for this. We fell in love with the Assynt and definitely want to come again!
