The Best Place to Stay: Achmelvich Pods

As times and trends change, as the year goes on, more people are looking for a break. A holiday. Time to relax with our family and friends. The only problem is that travelling far and wide has become somewhat a luxury, it can be really hard to find somewhere to go.

Going on holiday in the United Kingdom is becoming increasingly popular, especially because of the reasons stated above. However, many are still skeptical about having a break in their own country. At one point in time, it was the standard for everyone. 

Holidays abroad are not the only option though, going on holiday in the UK can be even better than going abroad. There are many beautiful places to visit, activities to get involved in and fun for all the family. You just have to look at the right places, one of these being Achmelvich Pods in the highlands of Scotland.

Let’s take a look at Achmelvich Pods and why you should give them a visit in the future for a holiday of beauty, scenery and fun. 

What are Achmelvich Pods?

The official name for these pods are NC500 Pods, as they are placed on the North Coast 500 route going across the north of Scotland. Achmelvich Beach is the coast very close to the pods, so close in fact that you can see it from the pods themselves. 

These are no ordinary pods, but glamping pods designed specifically for you to have a modern, luxurious break. Achmelvich Pods are increasingly popular, with these pods having bookings very frequently. They include the luxuries of modern life, such as a TV and WiFi, but are placed within the beautiful countryside of Scotland, giving you the best of both worlds. 

Things to do at Achmelvich Pods

There are many things for you and your family to get involved with once at Achmelvich Pods (NC500 Pods). Here are a few of our favourite things that you can participate in:

Achmelvich Beach

This one is definitely somewhere that you should visit. The Atlantic Sea on the horizon and the soft, white sand under your feet, Achmelvich Beach will take your imagination and drift it off to exotic lands.

If you are someone who enjoys the finer things in life and loves beautiful scenery and views, then this beach is definitely for you. It is absolutely stunning, lie back and relax in Achmelvich.

Achmelvich Golf

Overlooking the beach, there is a 9-hole golf course for you to participate in. Old or young, professional or amateur, this course will definitely keep you entertained. Bring your family or friends, and have a fun day.

Enjoy a relaxing game of golf whilst overlooking the beautiful beach. You can’t beat the feeling!


As you are already aware, Scotland is a mountainous country with some of the biggest hills, mountains and cliffs in the United Kingdom. In the area close to Achmelvich Beach, there are many famous hills including Quinag, Ben More, Cul Mor and Stac Pollaidh. 

Take a family day trip out and go on a hike up some of the most beautiful countryside and nature that you will ever experience. It is adventurous, adrenaline pumping and fun for all the family.
