Lochinver is a working harbour town situated at the bottom of two magnificent but still accessible peaks; Suilven ‘the sugar loaf’ and Canisp, each of which can be walked within a day.
The Assynt hills are reported to be the oldest in Britain and a walker’s paradise. If you want to know more, we are more than happy to provide detailed descriptions of the walks around the area.
From our Lochinver restaurant you can also walk 3 miles along the coast to Achmelvich. Its outstanding beach is equipped with attractions such as water-skiing and windsurfing, and there are plenty of other beaches to choose from too.
The area has plenty of shops and accommodation to offer, as well as the local fishing port. The 200 lochs in the area makes fishing, yachting and boat trips extremely popular in the area, especially since Lochinver is the second largest fishing port in the whole of Scotland.
The tranquil scenery and well maintained roads in the area mean that cyclists, motorbikes, classic cars and any other form of transport bring people from all over Britain to Lochinver. If you want a drive with a view, there are a selection of roads around Lochinver and Assynt that we would recommend, each of them offering amazing scenery around every corner.
