Our Location

Arial Achmelvich Beach

You’d be forgiven for thinking that you’d been teleported to the Caribbean upon stepping foot on Achmelvich beach.

The fine white sandy beach and turquoise water of the bay are at first a stark contrast to the rugged beauty of the surrounding Assynt area.

Sand castle builders, water-skiers, sail boats, swimmers, kayakers & fishing enthusiasts alike, are a common sight in and around Achmelvich bay.

At night there are often (responsibly managed) bonfires where friends will share a drink or two.

Back Achmelvich Beach

Achmelvich Beach has won numerous awards.

Some for the cleanliness of the water and some for the quality of the beach as a whole.

This really is one of the best beaches in Scotland.

There’s something magical about the place and the people who visit time and time again.

Our pods are a mere 2 minute walk from this stunning, clean and often bustling beach. Why don’t you join us?
