Near Assynt, Lochinver is an incredibly stunning part of the Scottish Highlands with a natural playground of mountains, lochs, waterfalls and beaches to explore. Lochinver stretches around the head of Loch Inver with the second largest fishing port in Scotland, and a hub for much of the local industry, while the surrounding landscape is teeming with wildlife and birdlife. So visitors can expect a hub of activity with ships from all over the world!

A lively coastal village, Lochinver boasts an abundance of unique artisan crafts, shops, eateries, outdoor activities and much more. At the southern end of the village is the busy harbour while the main street carries on up the village, with accommodation and shopping options. The north end of the village, across the river, has more accommodation and the local Highland Stoneware gift shop to purchase a unique keepsake from your visit.
