The accommodation is a perfect spot for exploring the direct surroundings and a stone’s throw away from the scenic route around to Achmelvich and further north. This is an area of Scotland that I've not spent enough time in exploring so I was really keen to actually spend a good few days in this location and slow down a bit!
initial plan for the trip was to do some hiking and head up to a few of the
peaks in the surrounding the area; (the cabin is perfectly situated close to
some of the most unique interesting peaks in Scotland yet the forecast was
misty so we decided to have more of a slow adventure, make the most of the
cabin and dedicate our time to exploring the surrounding area of Assynt and the
scenic route North instead. We spent the days we had at the Cabin fully
relaxing and immersing ourselves in the chilled out atmosphere of the place; (something
we don’t make much time for normally) whilst watching the surrounding wildlife (there
have been otters spotted on the shoreline right next to the cabin) and a
lot of time in the hot tub (this is a luxury we don’t get too often either!)
On our last day having spent the weekend slowing down, driving around the coastline and relaxing, we awoke to clear blue skies where we were truly able to appreciate the majestic location of this cabin. The towering peaks rose in the distance and it was very obvious why the cabin has been placed where it is. The best part about staying in the Muir-Lan Log Cabin? Walking back home to the cabin after dinner along the shore to slip straight into the jacuzzi to have an evening beneath the stars, an absolute must and an evening that I’ll not be forgetting anytime soon!
I would highly recommend this place, not only for the ideal location for exploring the surrounding areas of Assynt but also for spotting wildlife and slowing down to appreciate the wonderful details of this thoughtfully built Cabin whilst being immersed in its beauty and homely charm. I’m already looking forward to going back!
