Stay in the unspoiled Scottish Highlands, where stunning beaches, rugged countryside and vast fishing lochs offer plenty to do for holidaymakers looking for an outdoor adventure break.

Escape to the breathtaking Scottish Highlands at this cosy cottage, which is set within the North West Highland Geopark. Discover the area’s bens, glens and seascapes which have been claimed as Europe’s finest scenery. Spend your days walking, hiking and biking the surrounding area of historic Sutherland or fishing on Loch More, with a boat and two rods included within the rental. With two twin bedrooms, this is a fantastic escape for groups of outdoor-loving friends or a small family.

Located on the edge of the loch, enjoy incredible views as you dine morning and night at this inviting holiday home. Eclectically styled, the single-level property is packed with character as well as an abundance of space, with a focus on comfort and homeliness throughout.

If you can tear yourself away from exploring all that is on your doorstep, gather around the table in the dining room for a hearty homecooked dinner; you’re sure to have worked up quite the appetite with so much to see and do. Retreat to the lounge with full bellies and make plans for tomorrow beside the warming woodburner on a dreich evening. Two twin bedrooms lie ready for you to lay your head and catch some Z’s, both decorated in a warm and welcoming style to make you feel right at home. There is also a bathroom with shower over bath at the property. Due to its remote location, the Wi-Fi signal can be poor, making this the perfect spot for an ‘unplugged’ stay.

Enjoy the scenery from the large enclosed garden, with an extensive range of outdoor pursuits just the other side of the fence. Please note that during the stalking season (which begins in early August) guests will be asked to give their cooperation to the estate. Garage parking is available.


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

Lace up your walking boots; the Reay Forest Estate is home to famed mountains such as Ben Stack (7.5 miles) and Arkle (10 miles), both with excellent hiking routes to explore. For even more adventure, try white water rafting in Aberfeldy

Get closer to the local wildlife at Handa Island (19 miles), where bird watchers will be amazed as nearly 100,000 seabirds breed here each summer, including guillemots, razorbills and great skuas. Plus, the dramatic sandstone cliffs provide stunning ocean panoramas that need to be seen to be believed.

Walk the rugged coastline, starting from Durness (30 miles) - the most north-westerly village in the British mainland. Here you'll find a string of sheltered sandy coves, as well as the beautiful Balnakiel beach (31.5 miles) and Smoo Cave (31 miles).

The geopark is a haven for keen fishermen and women, with brown trout fishing available on a number of the estate hill lochs, with sea trout and salmon fishing also available on Loch Stack and Loch More. If you prefer to eat your fish rather than catch it, embark on a day trip to Lairg (26 miles) where you will find restaurants and other eateries, as well as shops to explore, or head to the bi-weekly fish market at Kinlochbervie (20 miles).

Wonderful break it was just perfect. Cottage was lovely and cosy. Fished most days as you just walk to loch and boat there. Walked everyday with dog and outside was fenced to keep deer out but also keeps dog in. Definitely recommend a visit.

Excellent setup for a fishing holiday. The estate office were really helpful with any enquiries. Opening times of places to eat very limited.

Reviewed by Mr Khan April 2019

Everything offered in the cottage worked, very neat and clean, guidance was accurate, WiFi marginal but that may be a blessing as one may want to enjoy the settings than worry about rest of the world. Location is remote, serene and windy. Lochinver, Ullapool and Kylesku areas are best places to visit from this location. Highly recommended.

Reviewed by Mr Mullin April 2019

We really enjoyed our short break in this well appointed and comfortable cottage. If you love remoteness, peace and quiet and beautiful scenery this is the ideal location for exploring a wonderful part of the country. The estate team were also most helpful and friendly.

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.
