Cat lover for log cabin in the North West Highlands
Hello, my name is Helen. I live with my 2 cats in the far north west corner of the Scottish Highlands. Our home is a log cabin situated on the edge of Loch Drumbeg, in Assynt. I am self employed and run my own business which is mainly during the busy summer months of the tourist season. During the winter I like to see my family who live away. My fur babies need company and hate being left alone.
Our Home & Location
Britain’s last wilderness. Situated in a region of the North West Highlands of Scotland known as Assynt. Along the NC500 route. My log cabin is located about halfway along the remote breathtaking beautiful B869 single track coastal road. Overlooking loch Drumbeg. 14 miles north of the fishing village of Lochinver and 90 miles north west of the highland capital of Inverness. Surrounded by remote white sand beaches and breathtakingly beautiful mountains.
Providing Uninterrupted views over loch Drumbeg, heated by wood burning/multi fuel stove and electric heaters. Sitters must have experience using a multi fuel stove. Facilities include range cooker, dishwasher & washing machine, sky tv with movie channels....
The area offers many outdoor activities such as hillwalking, climbing, birdwatching, and an abundance of wildlife. Not to mention peace and tranquility. In the winter we have incredible views of the night sky (the area has dark sky status) the Milky Way can be clearly seen, and you may get sightings of the northern lights.
My home is a perfect retreat to get away from it all. (Yoga/Pilates mats can be provided. There is also a running machine/treadmill for the more energetic!)
Drumbeg has a well stocked small village shop located close by, otherwise the nearest amenities - post office/petrol/shop/medical centre etc... are 14 miles away in Lochinver. For larger supermarkets the nearest is in Ullapool, approx 1 hours drive away. A car is absolutely essential. I must ask that there are no naked flames and absolutely no smoking inside the house. Will suit single person or couples. No children. + More info
Responsibilities & Pets
Responsibilities are feeding the boys twice a day - Morning & Early evening. Ensuring they have clean water, are warm & comfortable. They are very sociable so interaction with them is very important, talking (they talk back!), petting and lots of love. They are not lap cats, but are very affectionate and love company. They have a cat flap and total run of the house and are no trouble at all. Aries is the most beautiful gentle little soul, his brother Loki is more mischievous but just as gorgeous.
