This stunning location in the Scottish Highlands naturally lends itself to outdoor activities like hill walking, cycling, and fishing. Lochinver is a beautiful area in the Scottish Highlands worth discovering. It is often referred to as one of the most striking and wild places in Europe with its rolling hills and mountains. The landscape of Assynt is dominated by the mountains of Canisp and Suilven, and glampers can get more information on possible hikes at the visitor center. This is also a great area for fishing of all types—trout lochs, salmon rivers, fly fishing, and sea fishing are all options.
In addition to those activities, there are lots of other things available in Lochinver like the two grocery stores, a butcher shop, a newsagent, a bank, a post office, a place to rent bikes, a gas station, a leisure center, and a doctor’s office. Should guests need anything, this area should be able to provide it. There are some fantastic restaurants in the area, definitely worth trying and perfect for a night out on the town after a rejuvenating day spent outside.
There is plenty of wildlife to see in Lochinver. That wildlife includes seals, common seals, dolphins, Minke whales, and basking sharks. Other wildlife to see include birds like oystercatchers, curlew, hooded crows, puffins, buzzards, and golden eagles. Other animals guests might see include mountain hares, pine martens, otters, and red deer. And as for staying on a croft, guests might expect o see chickens, cockerels, highland cattle, and sheep.
It’s also a perfect place to sit back and relax, and simply soak up the breathtaking surroundings. Another great activity in the Highlands is stargazing. Because the light pollution is so low, there is hardly anything between guests and the sky, setting the perfect scene for a night of watching stars. Glampers might even get a glimpse of the great Northern Lights.
