Direction by Car
Travel: By far the easiest way to find us is by car, but we’ve included links to train and bus timetables.
Directions by Rail or Bus
Trains run from Inverness to Achnasheen. From Achnasheen you can get a bus to Poolewe, which is 3 miles from Taigh Sonais. We may be able to pick you up at the Post Office.
Please plan your travel itinerary carefully, as this is a rural area and public transport isn’t always interconnecting. We find that’s part of the charm in living in the north west Highlands. A real get away from it all place.
Here are some useful links for planning your journey:
There are numerous sandy beaches and plentiful walks which, combined with turquoise seas and ever changing light, make Wester Ross unforgettable.
Rich in wildlife and steeped in history, Poolewe and the surrounding area will provide you with an abundance of things to see and do: From Archaeology to Geology and from adventurous activities, to sitting back and watching the world go by, we’re convinced there’s something for everyone.
At the furthest end of the 8 mile stretch of the Western side of Loch Ewe, you will find Cove with it’s relics and remnants of the Russian Artic Convoy, Firemore Beach, with a stunning view of Loch Ewe and the Mountains. You may be lucky enough to see an otter!

We had a lovely stay in the studio flat and enjoyed the spectacular and ever-changing views of the water and mountains. A wonderful fresh and clean space with excellent cooking facilities. Lots to do around about, without driving too far.Yvonne, Scottish Borders
Elaine & Gary were wonderful hosts and the location is absolutely idyllic. Glamping was a new experience for us and it was so much fun. Again the location was brilliant and views to die for.Carol and Lawrence, East Lothian
We really enjoyed the experience of sleeping in a rustical setting with our family (2 adults, 2 children). The fresh air tired us out, so sleeping wasn’t a problem. A very tranquil place, with great views. Our son was curious about the composting toilet, but the majority of us decided to make use of the facilities in the main house. Bluebell Bothy, we’ll be back!The Rennie Family, Midlothian
