Customer Reviews of Achmelvich Bungalow - Sleeps 7
"a lovely secluded retreat"
Spacious and well equipped bungalow.Well designed with a good outlook from the lounge.
"We had a wonderful holiday, partly because weather was fantastic"
Good modern house with lots of space for extended family including baby and toddler. Usual conveniences including microwave, combi boiler so hot water all the time, efficient central heating although no fire. Bit low on cooking dishes and bowls, no casseroles and no food storage such as bread bin, tins etc. Loch is lovely for adult swimming and very shallow so warm and safe, and short car ride (or bike) to wonderful beaches. Midges might be a problem in July/August but we were lucky as it was sunny and a breeze mostly. Wonderful bit of the country and lots of hills, fishing, etc and some good places to eat, craft shops etc in Lochinver
"Fantastic property, stunning location & an unexpected heatwave i"
We were a party of 6,(members of Barrow Mountaineering & Ski Club) ranging in age from 40 to 73yrs old. The accommodation was perfect for us to share;it contained everything we needed, was clean, spacious, with plenty of room to spread out.Very well maintained, with stunning views over the loch. Beautiful loch side location, perfect peace & quiet; the unexpected heatwave 24 degrees with wall to wall sunshine meant we could use the BBQ in March. The clear night skies were an absolute delight to us city dwellers. It was possible to walk to the nearby beaches, also to Lochinver over the fells & there were many mountains to climb without having to drive a long way. The icing on the cake was being able to take the boat out on the loch. A fantastic time was had by all.
