“We had a fantastic week living it up in the high quality accommodation
of Ardmair Bay House, thoroughly deserving of its 5 star rating.
The location and layout makes the most of the view over the Loch and Island
to the mountains, stirring in the night and seeing the mountain and Loch
from bed was amazing, the six of us were the first to stay in this holiday
accommodation, it had all the equipment we needed, so taking turns to cook
there was no point eating out with this house and location to enjoy.
There was lots of space, we could gather together in the large lounge
or go to separate rooms to watch TV or sit out on the patio to admire the
view. The house is very well equipped with a modern clean “designer” style,
the high quality substantial furnishings making this work very well,
with interesting fixtures for the bathrooms.
The hot-tub was one of life’s luxuries sitting out there in warm bubbling
water looking across the loch and Island to the mountains.
The downstairs bedroom and wet room was ideal for the member of our group
with weaker legs. Internet access let us bring a laptop to keep an eye on
weather forecasts and use walkhighlands website to plan our wanders.
The whole group enjoyed the “all abilities” path to the Lochs just beyond
LochAssynt Lodge, another day two of us took the Quinag stalker’s path past
the Lochen and reached the summit of Sail Garbh. Other outings were the easy
but interesting walk along Knockan Cliffs geological trail, a wander round
Leckmelm gardens, Rhue lighthouse to watch the sunset, (there’s a geocache
there) and the afternoon cruise round the entrance to Loch Broom
and in to Ardmair Bay.”
