This lovely period property located in the charming crofting village of Culkein, offers peace and tranquillity to those wishing to really get away from it all. Perfect base to explore an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

Stay in this rugged and remote Scottish location, where grassy hills are interspersed by charming detached cottages and the far-reaching sea thrashes around in the background. Sleeping four, this wonderful cottage is perfect for a small family or two couples on a romantic retreat.

 

Each nook and cranny of this cottage is filled with charming little titbits, be it ornaments or books, creating an ultimately homely and welcoming atmosphere. You’ll get an instant feel for the coast when you reach this whitewashed home, 70 yards downhill from a communal parking area, and the coastal colour scheme continues throughout with bright turquoise and crisp whites.

 

Step inside and first drop off muddy coats and boots in the porch area, before heading straight into the cosy lounge. Settle into a cushy sofa or armchair and switch on the TV with the multi-fuel wood burner flickering before you. The lounge leads onto a well-equipped kitchen, where you’ll find everything you need to cook for your party, and a dedicated lounge at the front of the home.

 

Two bedrooms, both full of character, can be found on the first floor. The first of these is a bright double bedroom with a stunning view out to sea. Enjoy a touch of privacy and settle into the armchair, relaxing with a book or simply taking in the view. The second bedroom is a cosy twin that can also be set up as super king-size thanks to a zip-and-link bed. Both rooms have a TV for enjoying lazy mornings and a USB charging point.

 

The home is surrounded by an enclosed garden, ideal for letting dogs out or allowing kids to play. There’s seating to both the front and the rear of the home, ensuring you can enjoy sitting in the sun both morning, afternoon and evening.

 

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

  • 2 Bedrooms: 1 Double and 1 twin with zip-and-link (that can be made into a super-king-size on request)
  • Kitchen: with electric oven and hob, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washer/dryer and microwave
  • Bathroom: with shower over bath and WC
  • Lounge: with TV, DVD and wood burner (initial supply of logs)
  • TV and a USB charging point in both bedrooms
  • Wi-Fi included
  • Electric and heating included
  • Enclosed garden with front and rear seating areas
  • 2 dogs welcome
  • Ample parking, the property is accessed approx. 70yards down a hill from the parking area
  • Shop, pub and restaurant 1 mile, beach 4 miles
  • Arrival: 5pm

This wonderful coastal location puts you in close proximity to plenty of charming beaches, and arguably the most beautiful of these is 5 miles away at Clashnessie Bay. This sandy beach boasts a mild microclimate and is a great spot for visitors of all ages to enjoy. Go for a swim or wander up the stunning 15-meter Clashnessie Falls (5.5 miles).

Enjoy a memorable day out with a trip to the famous Handa Island, accessible 22 miles by car and a short ferry ride. The varied wildlife on the island includes red deer, otters, seals, dolphins and sometimes even whales, but the area is also famous for its large community of puffins.

The area is abundant in varied walks and hikes, including the stunning three Corbetts in Quinag, accessible around 19 miles away. Take on one of these peaks or tackle all three, enjoying remarkable views on each one. Alternatively, if you prefer fishing, the area is awash with inland lochs for fly fishing or coastal spots for sea fishing. Come home with salmon or brown trout and enjoy fresh local produce from the comfort of your home.

Enjoy a trip to the local village of Lochinver, 15 miles south of the cottage. This cute fishing port boasts a large fish market for enjoying a fresh catch and a popular local stoneware store for grabbing a souvenir to take home with you. Stay and enjoy a meal at the local lodge or sample the village's superb seafood restaurant.

What a fantastic cottage. Stunning location, yes its remote and the road is long and twisty, but it is so worthwhile. The beaches nearby are beautiful and v quiet. The hill walking out of this world. We went sea kayaking from the jetty 5min walk down the road (Summer Isles Sea Kayaking). Delilahs restaurant in Lochinver is certainly worth a visit.

This is a very nice cottage. Very clean and well equipped. Our dog was welcome which was great. However, it is about 12 miles down a single track road and that is not an easy road to drive for the uninitiated! There is also a steep slope down from the carpark to the front door. So this may not be for everyone. Beautiful setting and garden is large Read moreand has considerable amenities.

This is a lovely cottage with everything you could want for your stay. The owners have thought of everything and we made use of both the inside log burner and the outside chiminea. The views are stunning from the cottage and the garden. We loved the drive along the quiet road where we saw deer on several occasions. We would love to go back.

Cottage is good but somewhat dated in decor. Beautiful remote location and views. Probably worth mentioning that it is a 13 mile drive in to the cottage on a challenging single track road.

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.
