Tigh na Sith - A Friendly Top Quality Guest House.
We'd like to take this opportunity to introduce you to Tigh na Sith (pronounced Tie na Shee), a lovely Guest House run by some folk who have become friends of ours, David & Irene.
Tigh na Sith is set in its own grounds in an elevated peaceful location looking out over the picturesque harbour in Lochinver on Scotland's rugged north west coast.
David & Irene have 3 guest bedrooms, all with en-suite showers & WC's and equipped to a similar level to Crubenbeg, ensuring you'll enjoy a comfortable stay with them.
There are two rooms on the ground floor, as is the superb Guest Lounge and Breakfast Room, which is great news for guests for whom stairs are a bit of a problem.
The Guest Lounge and Breakfast Room plus two of the bedrooms enjoy those stunning views out over the harbour.
You'll also enjoy their great breakfasts, with a good choice of dishes ranging from the Full Scottish through to lighter options, plus a couple of special menu items that offer you something just a little bit different. As we do here at Crubenbeg, special dietary needs are very well catered for too.
Unlike other B&B's or Guest Houses in the Lochinver area, David & Irene welcome single guests.
Lochinver, Assynt & Sutherland - waiting to be discovered, by you.
It is a sad fact of life that far too many visitors choose to simply rush through Assynt & Sutherland, frequently staying just the one-night in the area, not even remotely scratching the surface of what is a unique, very special part of Scotland.
On the Tigh na Sith website, you'll find concise notes about the many & varied things that there are to see and do and, we're sure you'll agree that a longer stay - 2, 3 nights or even more - is well worth it.
There are glorious, peaceful, sandy beaches, remote wee coves, rugged coastline and tiny hamlets to explore. There are walks to suit all abilities, too numerous to mention here and even an all abilities, wheelchair-friendly trail just a few miles from Lochinver.
You can enjoy a splendid coffee & cake at the café next to Britain's remotest bookshop just a short drive from Lochinver or a truly magnificent Hot Chocolate at Cocoa Mountain when you're up in Durness. You're also not short of quality places to get a bite to eat or a wee drink in Lochinver which is a lively, friendly village with other good local services - a garage, health centre and shops, should the need arise.
Once refreshed, imagine, if you will, having the palm of one hand on one piece of rock, the palms of your other hand on an adjacent, but separate, rock and learning that the 2 rocks differ in age by over 5 million years!! Wow! The landscape in Assynt & Sutherland is amongst the oldest in Great Britain, indeed, in the whole of Europe, with spectacular mountains, the likes of Suilven, Canisp & Stac Polly, which can only be described as unique.
What is more, you don't even need to climb them; you can see them from afar if you're using Tigh na Sith as a base for touring the area.
Birdwatching, fishing, loch cruises. history, cycling and archaeology - all are available when you stay at the Guest House. You can even play golf too, with a choice of two courses, including the northernmost course in Great Britain, just a modest drive away.
Two Centre Holidays
When you're planning your holiday to Scotland you might want to consider getting the best of both worlds with a few days stay up in Lochinver combined with a few days more with us, here at Crubenbeg.
We hope that idea takes your fancy. If so, please contact either ourselves or David & Irene at Tigh na Sith, either by e-mail or using the Contact Form on either of the websites.
