The Smithy House is a former blacksmith’s house with converted byre and smithy, and an owner
occupied croft lying close to the scattered hamlet of Stoer near Lochinver. The property is in a
beautiful setting with views over an unspoilt landscape and towards Loch Neill Bhain.
The surrounding area is one of the last great, unspoilt wildernesses in Europe where the dramatic
outlines of Suilven, Canisp and Quinag provide a backdrop for a beautiful landscape of moorland
and coastline. The village of Lochinver is a thriving and busy port with fishing vessels from many
parts of the world landing their catches at the fish market. The village has two small supermarkets,
Post Office, petrol station, Health Centre, Community/Leisure Centre and a primary school as well as a number of other shops and facilities. Ullapool, about a 50 minute drive away, has a wider
range of amenities including a secondary school.

The current owners purchased The Smithy House in 2016 and have carried out improvements to
both the house and letting annexes to create delightful accommodation and a successful, versatile
holiday letting business with the potential to expand.
The Smithy House is a charming, sensitively renovated cottage with comfortable and well laid out
accommodation. Recent upgrading work includes new double glazing, new bathroom fittings and
complete redecoration. In addition, the original fireplace openings have been reinstated in the
sitting room and morning room and wood burning stoves installed enhancing the character of the
cottages as well as providing a further heating source.

The Byre lies to the rear of The Smithy House and provides well appointed, one bedroom
accommodation. The property retains echoes of the original farm building with the same footprint,
the original window openings, and an exposed stone wall in the sitting room. The Byre is sold fully
furnished. The Smithy is a delightful cottage lying immediately adjacent to The Smithy House. A former smithy, it has been sensitively converted to create a warm and welcoming interior with attractive
one room accommodation with a separate shower room. The Smithy is sold fully furnished.
