Bed & breakfast Philosophy

Bed & Breakfast

Contact us now!

In 2015 we wanted to change our lives and soon took the decision to do this in a drastic way. We decided to sell everything in Belgium to start new lives in Scotland with a brand new philosophy in life. The name of our new B&B “Philosophy” was created from a combination of our own joined names.

B&B Philosophy is situated on the North West Coast of the Highlands ( between Lochinver and Drumbeg ) , 2.5 hour’s drive from Inverness, 1 hour from Ullapool , 1/2 hour drive from Lochinver and 3 miles from the NC 500 route. Clashmore overlooks Loch na Claise , 2 miles from Stoer Lighthouse and close to the beautiful beaches of Balchladich, Clachtoll, Achmelvich etc…. . You can find more information on the ‘What to do ‘page on this website.

We transformed the old barn into a 2 modern rooms with contemporary comfort. The  B&B building is separate of the croft house what gives you privacy with your own garden area . When the weather is fine you can sit outside and enjoy the scenery . The breakfast is served  in the house .

What to do?

Remote and beautiful, spectacular and scenic, Assynt is waiting for you to explore. The mountains have dramatic shapes and since they stand alone you can see the distinctive shapes of each one , including the iconic Suilven. Stunning to be by the sea on one of the beautiful beaches, looking across to the Hebrides or to the mountains of Wester Ross. Or out on the hill and moor with their hundreds of lochs.

Come to see and experience for yourself. There are a variety of places to stay – hotels, B&B’s, youth hostel, bunkhouse, self catering and camp sites. In Lochinver there are also eating places with a choice to suit you.  Round the area are further eating places like Kylesku Hotel and several small enterprises.

Once here, there is a huge choice of things to see and do depending on your interests.

Assynt is a hill walkers paradise with mountains like Suilven, Canisp, Cul mor and Cul Beag, Quinaig and others. But also wonderful low level walking and coastal walks. Assynt is in an International Geopark which has a centre at Knockan where you can find how our hills were shaped millions of years ago. And you will learn about the geology encouraging you to find out more for yourself. There are also ranger led walks to show you wild life and places of interest here. Details from the Visitor Centre in Lochinver where there is a ranger area and information as well as Ranger led activities.

The sea offers exciting possibilities for swimming, sailing, kayaking or just messing about at the water’s edge. There are also boat trips from Lochinver, Kylesku and Achiltibuie. Again you will find information at the visitor Centre in Lochinver.

There is an abundance of bird life with many sea birds. An exciting day is a trip to Handa Island , a bird reserve, taking  a boat from Tarbert, Scourie. Often you can see dolphins, porpoises, seals and whales round the coast. At Stoer lighthouse there is a whale watching point – and a van serving tea and food as well as a toilet.

There are hundreds of fresh water lochs for brown trout fishing and there is salmon fishing on the Inver and Kirkaig rivers. Permits can be obtained at the tourist information centre/Visitor Centre. In the award winning Visitor Centre are displays of all the life and interests of Assynt and someone to help you find what you want to see or do.

There is stalking for red deer on our hills.But if you do not want to shoot but would like to shoot photos this is the place for you. Apart from the spectacular landscape there is an abundance of wild life – deer, otters, birds and sealife.  A photographer’s paradise.

If archeology is your interest there is an active local group who welcome you to digs. There is a broch at Stoer which is to be restored to make it safe for us all to visit and imagine life here many centuries ago.

Recently a road route called “North Coast 500” has been established, bringing many cars, motorbikes and cyclists round our coast. We welcome all visitors but hope that you will stay for a few days to enjoy the beauties of Assynt rather than going round as quickly as possible, thereby missing so much beauty.

And if you just want to relax and chill out, where better than sitting on a rock in Assynt contemplating this ancient, beautiful place.
