  The Detail...

The breathtaking views from the house directly overlook Reiff Bay, which conveniently has a beautiful beach you can access straight from the front garden. Further into the distance and across the sea, you will notice the Summer Isles, Skye and Lewis - the outline of these on a clear day possess an almost mythical quality. All of this can be enjoyed from the one acre enclosed garden that contains outside decking and furniture.

Each bedroom has stunning views out to sea and the mountains beyond. The master bedroom contains a king size double bed and en suite with shower and a bath for some added privacy. All other rooms are perfect for children or teens with a selection of bunkbeds and single beds - each room is provided with fresh towels and linen for the duration of your stay to make life a little easier. The kitchen is the centrepiece of the house. Panoramic views from the large bay window over Reiff Bay and a spacious open plan design ensure maximum comfort and the perfect place to cook up a storm after a long day walking or enjoying some of the numerous activities up and down the coast. The owners have a penchant for cooking and have made sure you have all the mod cons needed to enable you to cook up your own storm - there are also excellent WiFi speakers with iPhone and Spotify connection.

The living room is a cosy retreat with deep, comfortable sofas, a flat screen TV/DVD player, puzzles, books, speakers and of course, yet more impressive sea views. It is worth mentioning that there is also a games room with a pool table and dart board (perfect for teens) and a boot/laundry room, handy for drying out wet beach costumes or perhaps a dripping dog.

The North West Highlands is an outdoor enthusiasts dream. Ample opportunities for walking, climbing and cycling are just minutes from the door of Tigh Na Mara. The coastal walks that take in unspoilt, sandy beaches with secret rock pools and coves are unparalleled in the UK for their rich biodiversity. You may even want to experience these magical coastlines by kayaking, a popular pastime in this region and rental is extremely easy. You can leave the front garden, jump in your kayak and take an expedition out to the secluded and uninhabited island of Ristol, a Scottish Wildlife Trust Reserve - it contains yet another gorgeous beach known to the locals as The Queens Beach (the Queen herself recently stopped there on the Royal Yacht Britannia).

Boat Trips are a popular attraction and a great way to see the Summer Isles, islands replete with seal and otter colonies, curious rock formations and the possibility to witness whales or dolphins! You can also revel in a spot of fishing, the owners are keen anglers and will share with you some secret spots to help you increase your chances of landing a big one - dont forget that fishing requires a permit.

Further afield you have the quaint fishing town of Ullapool (25 miles), plenty of pubs, amenities and the renowned Seafood Shack, an awesome little pop up that serves up whatever is caught that morning and was featured on the BBC Good Food Awards. There is also the nearby campsite shop at Altandhu (two miles) and the Achiltibuie Stores (five miles) where you can get anything from petrol to local ice cream.
