Located just a few steps away from our shop is the newest accommodation in Achmelvich. North Coast 500 Pods is glamping at its finest. Here’s a little about what they have to say of their new venture launching in April 2019:
“Our handmade timber pods are fully insulated and feature underfloor heating, making them ideal for when the weather is more Motherwell than Miami.
Each pod has a living space with L-shape sofa & dining table and a kitchenette with oven/hob, fridge & Belfast sink.
The pods can comfortably sleep 4 (1 double bed and 1 double sofa bed) and have an en suite WC with on demand hot water & electric shower.
All of our pods feature WiFi, in-built Bluetooth sound systems, smart TVs & USB wall sockets.
You’d be forgiven for thinking that you’d been teleported to the Caribbean upon stepping foot on Achmelvich beach. The fine white sandy beach and turquoise water of the bay are at first a stark contrast to the rugged beauty of the surrounding Assynt area.
Sand castle builders, water-skiers, sail boats, swimmers, kayakers & fishing enthusiasts alike, are a common sight in and around Achmelvich bay. At night there are often (responsibly managed) bonfires where friends will share a drink or two. There’s something magical about the place and the people who visit time and time again.
Our pods are a mere 2 minute walk from this stunning, clean and often bustling beach. Why don’t you join us?”
