Kirkaig Lodge

Nestled on a working croft less than 200m from the sea and 3 miles from Lochinver, Kirkaig Lodge provides a unique base with which to explore the magical and wild landscape of the North West Highlands of Scotland.

It has been our privilege to welcome guests from around the world since 2011 and it is our mission to ensure your stay is as enjoyable as possible.

The Swallows Nest is a self-catering barn apartment connected to the main Lodge building. It offers privacy, warmth, comfort and all the facilities and equipment necessary to ensure you have the freedom to enjoy your stay, no matter what your schedule.

The Swallows Nest

Relax after a long day in your own private sauna adjoined to the Swallows Nest entrance.

Enjoy an early morning or evening walk/swim at Kirkaig Beach, watch as the sun sets into the sea horizon and, on a clear night, wonder at the stars in an area with very little light pollution or human footprint.

From £125 per night

Assynt is where the mountains meet the Atlantic Ocean.  An unspoilt wilderness forged through millions of years of continental drift, collisions and tectonic thrusts. Its stunning landscape and unique geology, coupled with a teaming native wildlife, make it an area of outstanding natural beauty and history.

Whether it be walking or hiking in the great outdoors , fishing in the rivers and lochs, kayaking, swimming or simply enjoying the fresh air (very fresh air) at one of our breath-taking beaches, Assynt offers something for everyone.  This includes for food lovers, where the area has rapidly gained a reputation as a gastronomical hub with excellent eateries, all within 4 miles of Kirkaig LodgePeets, The Albannach, Lochinver Larder and Inver Lodge to name a few.

Is it any wonder this secret location has become such a firm favourite on the North Coast 500.
