Seahorses, Nedd near Drumbeg

Sleeps 6 - Wifi - Wood Burner - Pets Welcome

Seahorses is located in a secluded position in the village of Nedd near Drumbeg. Its impressive coastline location offers panoramic views across the sea and towards the Quinag mountain range. The property offers spacious accommodation for a family or a group of friends looking to explore and enjoy all the activities that this scenic part of north-west Scotland has to offer.

At the heart of the property is an open-plan kitchen and dining room, with a utility area to the rear. The lounge which is spacious and light has an impressive fireplace and offers direct access to the garden. A bedroom is located on this level, this being a king with an en-suite shower room, it enjoys views to the garden and towards the sea. Completing the facilities on this level is a cloakroom. Upstairs there are two further bedrooms; a king and a twin; both have en-suite shower rooms and again enjoy impressive views to the sea and the mountains. 

Seahorses is the perfect place if you’re looking for somewhere remote to escape from it all. Although Drumbeg is a small village, it is serviced by the Drumbeg stores, where you can pick up essentials. At Assynt Aromas, you can buy candles that will instantly transport you back to the Highlands after you have returned home. For a bigger shop, stop in Ullapool,  here you can find a supermarket, as well as restaurants, a museum and ferries over to the Western Isles.

At Seahorses, you can immerse yourself in the wonders of nature. Watch wildlife from the comfort of the garden, where you can spot many species, including seals, deer, eagles and owls. There is even a badger that comes to visit most evenings. Due to the absence of light pollution, the skies come alive at night with twinkling stars. Get a closer look at the heavens with the provided telescope.

The area of Assynt is rich in natural beauty, and there is no shortage of activities to enjoy. Fishing is available at Lagg Trout Fishery, or simply head to the shore with the fishing equipment provided in the house. Hikers are spoiled for choice with the range of trails in the area. Walk from Loch na Gainmhich to Eas a Chual Aluinn – Britain’s tallest waterfall and a whopping three times higher than Niagara Falls.

An abundance of beaches is found around Drumbeg, including Achmelvich beach and Clachtoll beach, also home to the remains of an Iron Age broch. For those looking to go a little further afield, there are many possible day trips. Head north to Durness, where you can find Smoo Cave and Cape Wrath, Britain’s most northwesterly point. Alternatively, take a boat trip over to Handa Island, where you can walk amongst the puffins.

Seahorses is a stunning place within a jaw dropping location and scenery. The property was extremely comfortable and cosy and one of the best equipped places we have stayed. This includes very well equipped kitchen, loads of local guide books and maps, a huge DVD library, torches, binoculars, viewing and star gazing scopes etc. we were snowed in for nearly 5 days before the local snow plough could clear the road which was gorgeous just to sit and enjoy the scenery. Just make sure you have plenty of supplies and logs for the fire. The owner and housekeeper were really nice and helpful, and some of the locals were really nice and offered help in the snow if we needed it. We will definitely return sometime to do some local touring, which the Scottish winter stopped us doing this time.

Pretty cottage in fantastic location with awesome views from every window. Very well equipped, comfy & warm. Access roads not for the faint hearted or those with low slung sports cars. Worth the challenge.

What a beautiful location, wonderful cottage with all the modern conveniences, stunning views overlooking Loch Nedd and beyond into the Atlantic Ocean . All the weather you could ever want in one week , Snow,Fog,Torrential rain and Gales but it didn't matter when you could just stay in and watch it all go by. Would highly recommend it if you want to get away from it all.

An exceptional holiday cottage in an absolutely stunning location!!! Comfortable and cosy we loved the spacious open plan living area, the kitchen was probably the best equipped of any cottage we've ever stayed in, the views in every direction were stunning... Seahorses outperformed our already high expectations in every way. The incredible book selection covering everything from local wildlife to geology to stargazing and the huge array of excellent local walking guides was matchless. Could not recommend more - probably the most wonderful place we have ever stayed as a family, thank you so much to the owners for sharing your truly special house with us. Worth every penny and every second of the time spent driving the single track road in and out!!!

What a beautiful, comfortable house. I have never had a holiday house that is so well supplied - books, films, bird food and more kitchen implements than I own myself. Such generosity - everything you could possibly need on holiday and might have forgotten to bring was here. You could bake here. Loved the underfloor heating and the views.

A beautiful modern house in a simply stunning setting. The house was very clean, always warm and had everything we needed. Having visited in November many local facilities were closed, but we were well prepared. The scenery and walks are never closed and the views from the house will remain with us for a long time.
