With superb country and sea views, and perfectly situated in a secluded and tranquil location, this cosy and welcoming 19th century detached cottage is an ideal Highland retreat.
This Highland hideaway is charmingly traditional and features unparalleled country and coastal views due to its secluded and peaceful location. Perfect for a small family wanting a break from their busy schedules, here you will be free to enjoy the simple pleasures in life: watching the birds, listening to the sound of the ocean and spending time with up to two of your best four-legged friends. Guests to this pretty whitewashed cottage can expect to feel rested and rejuvenated after their short break here.
A former 19th-century school house, this property is packed with period features and has been sympathetically modernised to ensure its character remains. The bright white walls and ceiling in the lounge give the room a feeling of space and light, with a woodburner and dark-wood fire surround taking centre stage. A shelf running the length of the room groans under the weight of hard-backed books, positioned above squishy sofas that invite you to curl up on them and read. The two cosy bedrooms feature well-positioned comfortable beds that allow you to take in the beautiful views whilst enjoying a lazy breakfast.
The village of Lochinver is just under 10 miles away and was named by The Guardian as Scotland’s new foodie hotspot, with world-renowned chef Albert Roux having recently taken over the kitchens at Inver Lodge restaurant there. The sandy beach of Culkein can be found within a mile of the property and would be a wonderful spot for a game of fetch with Fido or to simply sit and daydream with a flask of coffee to keep your hands warm on chilly days. The falls of Kirkaig are a 17-mile drive and here you can walk up a beautiful wooden glen to catch sight of this most impressive waterfall.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
