Relax in this charming beachside cottage, with the coast on your doorstep. It''s the perfect space to cosy up in the cold Scottish winter or bright Highland summer. Enjoy a 1.5-mile stretch of beach or head to Durness Golf Club.
Found at the extreme north of Scotland, close to the village of Durness, this fabulous little beachside cottage makes a glorious romantic retreat for two guests and a four-legged friend. Stepping out of the door in the morning you are greeted by 1.5 miles of immaculate white sand, which leads on to fantastic coastal walks in either direction – perfect for salty seadogs who want to splash in the surf. An absolutely sublime location.
Despite its compact size, the property has been finished to an exceptionally high standard, with a cosy open-plan living space offering stunning views across the bay from its window-facing dining table. Alternatively, you can move outside, taking advantage of the supplied BBQ and garden furniture to dine al fresco and enjoy the sunset together with your canine companion who will probably be waiting patiently to snag a sausage or two! Back indoors a king-sized bed awaits, with the sound of the waves lapping at the shore accompanying you as you drift off to sleep.
Although this is the perfect place for solitude and romance, the property is also set in a dramatic coastal landscape that is begging to be explored. You can sniff around the ruins of Balnakeil Church, which lies within 200m of your door; have a splash about at glorious Sango Bay, just 1 mile away; or take a longer 2-mile walk out to spectacular Smoo Cave, perhaps stopping off at one of the cafes or galleries you pass along the way. For more energetic excursions you are also within reach of some of northern Scotland's most spectacular mountain peaks, including Foinaven (which stands at 911m) and Ben Hope (at 927m), both of which lie within 30 miles of your cottage – ideal if your dog has great stamina.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
Please note there is a refundable £150 security deposit for this property payable closer to the start of your holiday.
