For 4 generations my family have owned a house called Greenhill, in Achiltibuie. It is comfortably & traditionally furnished (see pictures of the rooms below).
Greenhill is set in its own gardens with a fenced-in wild wooded area and small lawn to sit out on. There are fantastic views across to the Summer Isles and direct access down to the sea via a short walk over the croft.
The house sleeps between 2 to 6 people & has a sitting room with open fire, dining room, kitchen and utility room. There is a victorian bathroom with the original enamel bath and a shower. The house is heated by electric storage heaters in each of the rooms. It has a TV with Freeview, DVD player, washing machine and tumble drier.
We have deliberately chosen not to put wi-fi in the house to encourage our own children away from devices but it is available in the local bars and at the community centre next door. A reasonable mobile reception is available on most networks. There is parking space for 3 cars next to the house.

Bookings & enquiries about availability:
The best thing to do if you want to enquire about availability for booking Greenhill is to e-mail me, Rory Brown, firstname.lastname@example.org or phone me on 0791 717 8326. I’ll get back to you promptly. If you have any questions about either the house or the area please do let me know.
Letting periods run from 3 pm on Saturday afternoons to 11 am the following Saturday.
Included in your rental is everything apart from bed linen and towels – these are available for £7 per person (you are welcome to bring your own if you would prefer). Please make sure to request at your time of booking. A non-refundable booking deposit of £250 per week is required to reserve your week with the balance due 6 weeks prior to arrival. The house is no-smoking and I’m afraid that we do not allow pets.
We employ a local caretaker rather than a cleaner. By booking you agree to leave the house clean and tidy for future visitors. Full instructions will be waiting for you on arrival and our caretaker will call to arrange pick up of the key.
