Self catering house to rent in Achiltibuie

Greenhill - old crofters house extended in the 1930's

Greenhill – old crofters house extended in the 1920’s – e-mail rory.home@gmail.com for availability

For 4 generations my family have owned a house called Greenhill, in Achiltibuie. It is comfortably & traditionally furnished (see pictures of the rooms below). This is very much a family house that we use as often as we can ourselves rather than a commercial holiday let.

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 for anyone with withdrawal symptoms 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.

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 £300 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.

  1. Hi June,
    Apologies for the slow response but I’m afraid that week is already taken.
