A beautifully presented home just half a mile from the village centre in Durness, this property is great for families that want to get out to explore the beaches nearby.

Durness is a beautifully rural part of Scotland; here, the sun, sky and stars meet the unspoilt scenery of jagged grass-topped cliffs and vast stretches of white-sand beaches. Walkers and hikers, on two and four legs, will find fantastic trails over rugged mountains and expansive moorlands. Situated on a quiet road, rolling fields surround the property adding to the overall charm of this Highland home. Sleeping ten guests in four bedrooms, plus two canine chums, this property is perfect for a large family or group of friends who want a break from hectic lives in open, peaceful surroundings.

The rooms within the property are spacious, yet warm, welcoming and designed to accommodate large numbers with ease. Rustic charm and nostalgia at every turn, paintings on the walls and a library full of books make this a real home from home. The kids will love having sleepovers in the dorm room where there are four single beds and, when you all need some space, they can head to the additional snug and rule their own roost, as the adults relax in the main living room next door.

Step into the large entrance hall and discard muddy boots and coats, leaving the northern chill at the door. Head through to the living room, where comfortable sofas beckon you to relax and rest your walk-weary limbs. Windows on three walls bathe the room in light and provide fantastic vistas of the ever-changing scenery. Bright during the day, the room takes on a cosy ambience as the sun goes down and the wood burner is lit, perfect for a movie night. Prepare a home-cooked meal in the large kitchen before gathering everyone at the dining table. Comfortably seating ten people, this table is made for happy, sociable dinners and hearty breakfasts. Handy extras, such as the pantry with an additional fridge/freezer and the utility room that has plenty of drying space for outdoor clothes, cater to the practical requirements of large groups.

As the day draws to an end, retire upstairs to the simple yet cheerful bedrooms. With two of the four bedrooms having an en-suite bathroom, and with a further family bathroom plus a shower room on the ground floor, everyone has their own space. With picture-perfect sea views from some of the windows, wake to birdsong to take your coffee in the garden.

Outside, enjoy wonderful views overlooking the surrounding croft land and beyond to Sango Bay. Fully enclosed, children and pups can spend hours playing on the grass here while you sit and relax, glass of wine in hand as the sun sets across the picture-perfect vista. There is ample parking space on the gravel driveway for five cars – very useful if party members are arriving separately.

The most north-westerly village in the British mainland, Durness is surrounded by a rocky coastline, white beaches and vast open spaces which makes it a great escape from all the hustle and bustle. Situated under 0.25 miles of the small supermarket and petrol station, this property is ideal for exploring the sheltered sandy coves and grassy cliff tops that surround Durness. Thrillseekers can get the adrenaline pumping by soaring at 45mph on the Golden Eagle Zip Line (3 miles), 100 feet up in the air. Beautiful and vast stretches of white sand can be found at Balnakeil Beach (1.5 miles), Sango Sands (0.5 miles) and Ceannabeinne Beach (3 miles). Rough coastal walks that stretch along the dunes at Kyle of Durness provide miles of space and freedom, perfect for getting away from it all. Smoo Cave (1 mile), a 50ft-high dramatic and spectacular sea cave can be explored by boat or by the path, and is a must-see. Munro baggers can conquer Ben Hope, the most northerly Munro – but it’s not for the faint-hearted and walking boots are essential. For a gentler pace, play a round at the Durness Golf Club (1.5 miles) with unparalleled views out to sea, or visit the John Lennon Memorial Garden, as Durness was where he spent most of his childhood holidays.

Gorgeous house amazing views, very home from home, two mins in the car to the beach, less than 5 minutes to Smoo caves. Everything you could ever need is in the kitchen. We had a great family new year. Just note if you have dogs garden is enclosed with low fence and no gate so not completely secure. Loads of walks near though not a great inconvenieRead morence for us. Hide

A gorgeous house with everything you could need. Warm and cosy even when the weather is awful. Big windows to watch the sea, the sky, birds and animals. Plenty of space with big bedrooms and four good sized bathrooms. A readers dream with hundreds of books in the two sitting rooms. The location is perfect for beach and countryside walks. The local Read moreSpar is great for fresh bread etc and is very well stocked. Fresh fish at the Smoo Cave Hotel was wonderful. We thoroughly enjoyed our week! Hide

An excellent property, very spacious, tidy and well equipped. Great location for walking and climbing hills. Good size car park, we had 7 cars between 10 of us (for various reasons) and it was easy to get them all parked and not block each other in.
