Cathair Dhubh Estate, Lochinver, Sutherland (Sleeps 1-6)

Cathair Dhubh Estate, Lochinver, Sutherland

Taken from the Gaelic for ‘Black Chair’, Cathair Dhubh derives its name from the dramatic hillside to the east of our cottages. Established in 1993, the small, secluded estate is situated a few miles north of the well-serviced and attractive fishing village of Lochinver, directly on the Route NC 500 (North Coast 500). 

The cottages themselves are situated in the valley, well away from the public road and are ideally placed to enjoy the tranquillity and the breathtaking, panoramic coastal views.

Cathair Dhubh looks out over Achmelvich Bay and is set against an awesome backdrop of sandstone mountains, with names that trip from the tongue of any walker – Quinag, Suilven, Canisp. These ancient hills are formed from some of the oldest rocks in the world and create a timeless wilderness.

In the hills around the estate, wildlife and birdlife abound. Black-throated divers, otters, red deer, seals, porpoise and sea birds are but a few of our neighbours. With a touch of extra vigilance, you may even happen to spot minke and pilot whales, orca and sea eagles – binoculars are a must!
