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.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.

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.

From the isolated and peaceful Shetland Islands in the north to the thriving border towns and cities in the south, across wild mountains and serene lochs, and encompassing over 700 islands, Scotland’s rich and dramatic landscape simply must be seen to be appreciated. Scotland is home to the ten highest mountains in the UK – including Ben Nevis, the UK’s highest peak – and is bordered by three seas, offering epic scenery unlike any other you may have seen.

Whether you choose to explore the Highlands, lowlands or islands, lovers of the great outdoors will be thrilled by the stunning Scottish landscapes where some of the rarest UK wildlife can be glimpsed, including golden eagles, dolphins and whales. Take a road trip on the North Coast 500, Scotland’s version of Route 66, to experience the sheer beauty of the land’s wilderness or, as Scotland is the home of golf, either tee off at one of the 550 courses across parkland, heathland and links courses.

Scotland is also a land of unique culture where the people are renowned for their incredible warmth and hospitality. Experience the peaceful Isle of Lewis where Scots Gaelic is widely spoken, or immerse yourself in the cosmopolitan cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh and Aberdeen which are vibrant with thriving arts scenes, delicious restaurants and bustling nightlife. And no trip to Scotland is complete without exploring the castles and distilleries: learn about clan rivalries or bloody battles amongst 13th-century battlements or try a taste of Scotland itself during a tour of one of the 120 whisky distilleries. Pure Scottish culture in a glass.

With so many beautiful places to visit and things to experience, a break to Scotland should not be missed. Our fantastic Scottish holiday cottages will ensure a truly memorable getaway. Whether it’s a dog-friendly countryside cottage for two, or a vast and resplendent castle for the entire clan on a tranquil island, we have a holiday in Scotland to suit everyone.
