    The croft is situated in a stunning beautiful position with an open vista by the sea comprising of house, bothy, semi mature woodland. A large vegetable & herb garden and meadows on the south side of Lochbroom.

    My name is Chris now 70 years old. Over the last 40 years we have created all organic croft that supply's myself and visitors with fresh fruit, vegetables and herbs. At one time running a dried herb business (Highland Herbs). I survive well but do need help as I grow older in a hands on practical way. I have been a host for many years and I am used to welcoming people as volunteers from all over the world, young and old from all backgrounds. I especially seek those who enjoy the outdoors and have a happy disposition with a sense of adventure. Abundant wildlife prevails from Sea Eagles, Deer as well as Dolphins and the occasional Whale.
    Achmore is a difficult(could be considered remote) to access. 1 mile from the local off grid community of Scoraig. People who can make their own way are appreciated.
