The name ‘Meall Dubh’ translates in Scottish gaelic to ‘Black Hill’ and is a direct reference to the hill of the same name just opposite the cottage. The larger than usual windows (for an old crofter’s cottage) in the lounge and the kitchen allow great views of the mountains of Assynt from the kitchen dining area or the easy chairs/sofa in the lounge.
The house was acquired by the current owners, Wayne and Iona, in 2006. It was in need of some major attention so with the assistance of local tradesmen the cottage was stripped back to the bare essentials in order to install up to date plumbing, electric, heating, damp proofing and insulation and is now a comfortable and well equipped holiday home. Since buying the cottage, we and our young daughter have grown to love it and the area and so still take all of holidays there most years.
Although remote and very peaceful, Raffin is a friendly and busy little “township” containing around 10 dwellings. Raffin’s residents are busy with a diverse range of activities such as pottery, writing , painting , “Lochinver Llama Trekking “and last, but not least, The ‘Living the Dream’ Tea and Snack Van selling great homemade cakes during the summer months.
From Raffin and Stoer there are regular sightings of basking sharks, otters and whales during the summer months. One guest managed to shoot a picture of a two Orcas from Meall Dubh garden with a zoom lens.
