Split Rock Croft House and Cottage is set on a traditional working croft in a stunning area of the Highlands of Scotland, near the towns of Lochinver and Clachtoll. The Croft (small Highland Farm) was derelict for many but has now been lovingly brought back to life using time honoured methods of farming and land management.
Our hens, cockerels, geese, pigs, highland cows, dogs and other livestock live freely on the Croft, often making daily visits to the two beaches that are within the boundaries of the Croft. To see the Highland Cows and Hens all roaming free on the beach is an unusual but very rewarding site to behold! We also have a flock of sheep but in true Highland tradition, these roam the hills for most of the year, only coming onto the Croft for lambing and shearing. We eat or sell all our own produce. The Kylesku Hotel takes our pork and mutton and is looking forward to our beef when it becomes available for their restaurant menu.
The Croft sits on a peninsula of land jutting out into the north Atlantic and boasts an amazing array of bird and sea life including basking sharks, whales, dolphins, porpoises, seals and otters as well as gannets, puffins and oyster catchers, to name but a few. Basking sharks are often seen cruising close to the in our little bay.
It is a haven for wild flowers and orchids which grow in profusion around the and is a nature lovers dream.
It is a photographers dream and the light is quite spectacular; the sunrises and sunsets have photographers out in droves to capture the stunning vistas. The Assynt area boasts a great deal of unspoilt nature, including the beautiful Quinag mountain range, and Suilven and Canisp mountains.
The surrounding lochs and rivers are with wild brown trout and many are within walking distance as is sea fishing from the rocks or from the beaches. We can also offer sea angling trips or sightseeing trips in our own boat which moored nearby. Salmon fishing can be arranged by request.
Deer stalking trips, sea and hiking trips can all be arranged by the owners on request, with some of the necessary equipment supplied. Please just ask for more information.

Pets: I am sorry, but we do not take pets at the Croft as we have 3 dogs of our own.
