Achmelvich lies just three miles north west of Lochinver. However, they are three long miles when you take into account the "sporting" nature of the single track road that takes you there, and especially the last mile and a half of it leading down from the B869 coast road.
This is a wonderful place, and you shouldn't let the idea of some unusually challenging single track roads put you off making the short trip from Lochinver. For more information and photographs, see the Achmelvich Feature Page.
