Inverkirkaig is a small community three miles south of the busy fishing village of Lochinver, where there are many facilities including shops, cafes, petrol, tourist information centre, leisure centre, post office, bank and health centre.  In Ullapool, forty minutes drive to the south, is the ferry terminal for the Isle of Lewis, large supermarket, leisure centre, swimming pool and golf course.

Sealladh na Mara (pronounced Shall-uh nuh Maa-ruh and Gaelic for “View of the sea“) is a spacious, modern, detached house accommodating eight.  Close to the seashore and set in about an acre of wild, partly wooded garden, there are stunning views across Inverkirkaig Bay to the Assynt mountains.

Sealladh na Mara is furnished and equipped to a very high standard with four large bedrooms, one with balcony overlooking the sea.  There is a bathroom with spa bath and a separate shower room.  The kitchen is fully fitted with modern appliances.  Downstairs rooms have polished hardwood floors with rugs and from the dining room double doors lead to a verandah.  The house is double glazed and has oil fired central heating. 

The surrounding area is famed for its wildlife; otters, seals, red and roe deer, pine martens, golden eagles and divers may be seen.  There is a wealth of plant life including many alpine species and orchids.  West Sutherland is a popular area with walkers, mountaineers, geologists and anglers.  Mountain bikes can be hired in Lochinver.  Close by there are fine white sand beaches for relaxing and bathing.
