Welcoming and bright, this cottage is set conveniently on one floor. The sitting room has plenty of comfortable sofas to nestle into after a day outside. Warm your toes by the wood burner with a glass of wine or have a family film night and watch your favourite film together. Traditional fabrics, an oak mantelpiece and beautiful pictures help to create a cosy space to relax. A patio door leads out to the outdoor seating area and makes a splendid backdrop of rolling hills and crystal water. Well-equipped to cater for a large family or group, you can cook up a storm in the kitchen/diner and serve a delicious meal that everyone will enjoy. The antique dark wood table is the perfect setting for casual and more formal meals. Adjacent is a handy utility room. All four bedrooms have been beautifully decorated to make you feel at home, with contemporary colours and simple, stylish decor. The bedrooms have comfortable beds and ample storage, as well as views of the luscious countryside scenery. Two of the bedrooms have spacious en-suite bathrooms, and there is a third modern bathroom.

Fearna cottage fulfilled all our expectations: it is extremely well equipped; was clean; and spacious. We were a party of 6 adults plus a dog and the cottage was ideal and the grounds secure so the dog could run free. The shop at Drumbeg was well stocked with good quality produce and Lochinver provided a wider choice. Whether you approach from the Read moreLochinver direction or the Kykesku direction, you will have to negotiate several miles of narrow single track roads with blind bends and summits. Hide
