Welcome to Amberskye Annexe, so-called because on certain days, during sunrise and sunset, you can expect to see these shades of amber, pink and purple on the horizon.
At certain times of the year (mainly Nov-April), this spectacle is occasionally upstaged by the infinitely more mesmerising Northern Lights, which illuminate the night sky during Winter (seen twice by ourselves in Nov 2017 and once in March 2018).
Even on Summer nights, the valley is quiet and the stars are plentiful and piercing.
Definitely worth sitting outside on the private deck and keeping cosy in front of our little chimnea!
Amberskye is surrounded by croftland, so sheep are often found in the fields behind and spring time is a wonderful season to view newborn lambs here, which can be magical.
From the north side of Amberskye, the valley of Lairg spans out before you, encompassing the view of the Loch and stunning mountain views towards the West and North West Coasts.
A short drive from Lairg itself puts you on the NC500 route (North Coast 500 scenic drive), find more info here.
The Annexe is situated on a hillside just under 2 miles east of Lairg, where you have local shops, eateries and a petrol station at your disposal.

"The Annexe was the best accommodation we had with Airbnb! Perfect for people who like to be in nature and want to relax for a few days. The chimney made it extra comfy during the stormy days. The annexe is clean and decorated nicely. It was a very nice stay!"
