This delightful Scottish holiday cottage is situated close to the sea at Littleferry in Sutherland, capturing far-reaching coastal views and offering bright, airy accommodation.

Sitting in an elevated position with panoramic sea views, this wonderful coastal cottage sits just metres from the sea near the pier in Littleferry. Families and friends seeking a relaxing break close to the water can enjoy beach walks straight from the doorstep and for wildlife watchers, various seabirds and seals can be seen from the cottage. Enjoying a peaceful location on the banks of Loch Fleet, this seaside sanctuary boasts light and airy open-plan living space ideal for socialising together. With fabulous views across the water this is a tranquil haven where the sounds of the waves will soothe you to sleep.

Entering into the open-plan living space, the clean lines and neutral tones add to the sense of space. At one end of the room is the contemporary kitchen where you will find everything you need to prepare your meals. Plan your day’s activities over a hearty breakfast at the centrally positioned table, and after a long day of exploration sink into one of the plump sofas and enjoy the gentle warmth of the wood burner. Overlooking the water, enjoy leisurely meals around the dining table in the conservatory, a lovely space to while away the evening with a glass of wine. The pretty twin bedroom and a spacious shower room can be found on this level. Take the central wooden staircase to the first floor where you can indulge in a long soak in the roll to bath before drifting off to sleep in the master bedroom where the 5-foot bed is dressed in crisp linens for a good night’s rest.

Outside, the garden leads straight down to the edge of the loch and is a tranquil spot for enjoying a morning coffee or dining alfresco as the sun sets on the water. Fire up the BBQ to grill freshly caught fish for a sociable meal late into the evening. There is private parking at the property.

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

Nature lovers will enjoy spotting the wildlife that make their homes on Loch Fleet and the National Nature Reserve (8.5 miles) on the opposite bank of the sea loch offers wonderful walks through wildflowers and woodland and the chance to spot seals, otters and ospreys. Be rewarded with panoramic views across the Sutherland landscape with a challenging walk up Ben Bhraggie (4 miles) to reach the 100ft tall Sutherland Monument. Follow the woodland paths from Golspie (3.5 miles), crossing the burn on wooden footbridges to reach the dramatic Big Burn waterfall crashing through the gorge.

For an exhilarating experience head to the Highland Wildcat Trails where mountain bike tracks traverse the mountains above Golspie with routes for all ages and abilities. Novices can cycle through Big Burn woods or along the wider lowland tracks, while advanced cyclists will appreciate the white-knuckle ride down the longest descent in the UK. Golfers have a choice of courses within easy reach from the scenic course at Golspie Golf Club, the challenging holes of Brora Golf Club (9.5 miles) and the spectacular links course at Royal Dornoch (13 miles).

For a more leisurely day out, the imposing 13th-century Dunrobin Castle (5 miles), looks like something from a storybook. Explore the eclectic collection of artefacts in the castle museum, stroll through the formal Victorian garden and be awestruck at the incredible aeriel displays by the birds of prey on the falconry lawn.

Golspie is my childhood home so I am prejudiced but the whole area is great to explore. We particularly enjoyed watching the dramatic tidal changes and the movement of the wildlife with each tide. I am a returning customer for this property but I got your details as the current letting agents from the property owner.

Our second visit to this lovely comfortable house and it will not be the last! Being light until very late we spent most of our time in the sun lounge watching the birds, seals, the tidal race and simply the view. The welcome pack of local fare was so generous. Although the weather was very mixed we covered a good amount of the Area. Recommend the Read morecafe at Berridale Braes and the Pier at Lairg and the Mac and Wild at the Falls of Shin. Hide

What a wonderful cottage!! This was our third time staying in the Customs House and only gets better. The house is immaculate and everything you need is there.

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.
