Lochinver is an attractive fishing village located on the north-west coast 100 miles from the Highland capital Inverness and 35 miles from Ullapool. It is set in the mist of the stunning west coast scenery close to the world famous north-west 500 tourist road. This part of the Highlands is renowned for fishing, climbing and its remote sandy beaches.
The village is a lively community with a post office, two supermarkets and six restaurant/hotels. Primary school pupils attend the school in the village and upper school pupils travel by school bus to Ullapool High School.
The Rose sits in an elevated position across the bay from the village a 5 minute walk away giving stunning uninterrupted views over the bay and to the hills beyond.
The Rose has double glazing throughout and is heated by oil fired central heating. Broadband connection and mobile phone signals are excellent.

Susan Breen was excellent returning my calls promptly and provided clear concise clarifications, the latter greatly assisted us liaising between our English solicitor dealing with our sale in Bristol and the purchase in Scotland. This all contributed to a seamless completion day and date of entry.
