Achnasheen Hotels & Accommodation
Here are our selection of hotels in Achnasheen, which is a tiny settlement of just 28 people on the far north of Scotland. For hundreds of years it has lain at an important junction in the centre of the northern Highlands. Here the road from Inverness, just over 40 miles to the south east, splits in two.
The village sits at a height of around 500ft in the broad valley of the River Bran, offering very little shelter of any kind. Since the name Achnasheen comes from the Gaelic for field of the Storms, it is easy to believe that any cattle drovers caught by a storm here would remember it. The Achnasheen Terraces,one of the major attractions is located towards the road to Kinlochewe. These flat topped features look artificial, but are in fact glacial outwash deltas that have been here for 10,000 years or more.
A few miles east along Strath Bran, up a steep grassy path is the graveyard at Cnoc na Bhain. Here you'll find the grave of Captain Bertram Dickson, a pioneer of military aviation in the years before the First World War. Strath Bran is a regular low level route for modern military fast jets.
