About Us

Staying here you quickly realise that you are in one of the most beautiful parts of the world. The possibilities are endless so we encourage you to discover the natural splendour of the surrounding area whenever you can.  Guests are welcome to walk round the garden or stroll down to the edge of the loch and soak up the invigorating ambiance and the stunning scenery. Beyond the gardens, you look down onto to the crystal clear waters of Loch Assynt; the largest loch in the parish.
 
A place of outstanding natural beauty and unspoilt landscapes that offers total freedom from everyday city life. The breath taking views of the loch, the wild mountains opposite and the many peaks of Quinag to the rear all add to the magic of Ruddyglow Park.

Ruddyglow Park is ideally suited as a base for exploring the North West coast. We are less than 6 miles from Lochinver, 40 miles from Ullapool and places like Drumbeg, Kylesku, Handa Island, Durness, Cape Wrath and the far north are all within an easy drive. 

The house is owned and run by Patricia Filmer-Sankey, a native of the parish of Assynt. Attention to detail, guests' wishes, their comfort and enjoyment, are the main ingredients that the house runs on.

We get many questions about our name. Where did "Ruddyglow" came from? The answer is simple; Patricia's father, the late Captain Filmer-Sankey, had one great love in his early years; riding. His favourite horse, "Ruddyglow" won over 27 races and the Grand Military Gold cup 3 times. An original oil painting, by an artist, of the times, still hangs in the dining room depicting the last Military Gold Cup win.
