By Road From Inverness continue North on the A9 over the magnificent Kessock Bridge to the Tore roundabout. Bear left (West) on to the A835 following the signs for Ullapool. 10 miles north of Ullapool turn left onto the single-track road signed to Achiltibuie. 15 miles later you reach a T junction. Turn right at the junction and continue on for approximately two miles. You will come to a high point in the road (Brae of Achnahaird) with a fabulous view of the Summer Isles, the right turn to Reiff is at the bottom of this hill. After taking the right turn continue on for a mile and a half. The holiday cottage is the last but one house on the right-hand side, just before the road ends.

In April 2019, the Smith family bought Reiff Steading from the McLeods who successfully ran it as a self-catering holiday cottage for several years. Having enjoyed many a happy family holiday here since 2009 and always feeling very ‘at home’ during our stays, we are delighted to now be the new owners of this wonderful holiday cottage in this spectacular corner of North West Scotland.
Over the years we have recorded photographically many happy memories from our times in this wonderful corner of Scotland; all the photographs on this site reflect some of these memories!
The Smith Family
