We are so excited by everyone eagerness to secure their 2020 holidays in our beautiful north west coast chalets in Stoer Bay.
As we continue with our new kitchen fittings, which so far are going great we are looking ahead into our third season.
The feed back we have been recieving has been amazing. The bookings already made for next year must be our biggest compliment that people are happy in Stoer Bay chalets.
This means so much to us and makes all our hard work worth every moment.
A few wee comments left for us after guests have stayed at the chalets.
Our chalets are also becoming very popular for larger gatherings. With family’s and friends booking all three chalets for reunions and family celebrations. What a fantastic idea. With hill, lowland and beach walks. There is something for all abilities and lazy evening wanders.
Staying in the chalet grounds is also becoming popular with brown trout fishing in the loch in front of our chalets. (There are lots of trout fishing lochs sprinkled all over Assynt with permits very reasonably priced.) There are many different birds on the loch and around the chalets. Our new bird tables make some of these feathered friends easier to spot. If you are as lucky as many of this years guests you hopefully will spy our local otters swimming in the loch or at Stoer Bay just across the road from our chalets.
Herons are often spotted at our loch as is this wee fellow, a wee stoat.
There is plenty of history to find close by too. Across at the Bay we have Clachtoll Broch (an iron-age defensive tower) which has recently had lots of archelogy digs carried out with many interesting finds. For more information on this, just google Clachtoll Broch and you will be inundated with pages with information on all the finds and insights. Take a walk from there along the coast line to Clachtoll beach and you will pass a section of wet grassland which is formed into little terraces. These are lazybeds, remains of old cultivation for vegetables Carry on through to the monument to the Revd Norman MacLeod, a locally-born minister who led his people first to Nova Scotia and then to New Zealand. Its also worth visiting the former salmon-fishing bothy. The poles outside were erected for drying the drag-nets used to catch the fish. The bothy has information displays inside.
