    very cozy pod, felt like our own little nest - the layout is really nice and the pod itself lovely decorated. The view is great (if you're lucky, you might spot some seals) and in just a couple of minutes you can reach achmelvich beach.

    The location was absolutely great with stunning views no matter what the weather did. With a car it was close enough to all the fabulous beaches for fantastic sea swimming and also to Lochinver for shops and restaurants.
