Property code: CA130

A spacious four-bedroom cottage, perfect for larger families and friends seeking a relaxing base close to the beach from which to explore the rugged coastline of Sutherland.

This wonderful family home boasts stunning views over the estuary. From the elevated first floor lounge, you can watch the River Brora run into the North Sea, an unforgettable waterside view in the rugged Highlands. This functional home is perfect for family groups, offering two family rooms that are ideal for parents and young children, and plenty of space both indoors and outdoors ensures a comfortable stay for eight guests.

 

This cottage has been decorated throughout as a homely place to stay. Traditional country furniture, patterned soft furnishings and unique artwork add to the overall character of the place, but the cosy lived-in style ensures you feel instantly at home. The decor is primarily made up of clean whites and bright pastel shades, giving the property a light and airy feel and fitting in perfectly to its seaside surroundings.

 

Enter via the ground floor and find yourself instantly in the spacious kitchen. This room offers French doors that open out onto a sea view, allowing you to let a fresh sea breeze flow in on a warm day and still ensuring a pretty view even on colder days. Sit down to a casual breakfast or lunch at the kitchen table or make use of the space to pack a picnic for the day ahead. Evening meals can be enjoyed together in the dedicated dining room, which is equipped with a sociable round table. Two of the bedrooms can be found here on the ground floor, including one versatile family room sleeping three guests, ideal for a family with a young child.

 

Head upstairs to the first floor for an enjoyable space to relax. Putting the lounge on the first floor ensures wonderful sea views, creating a calming spot to unwind with a good book or sit down to a board game as a family. You may prefer to simply crash on the sofa and watch a DVD, energising for the day ahead. The remaining two bedrooms are here on the first floor and have unique vaulted ceilings. A family bedroom with three single beds is ideal for a children’s sleepover.

 

The garden can be found to the front of the property, accessible via the French door leading off the kitchen. Partly set to lawn and partly patio, this enclosed space is ideal for children to play. Relax on the lawn or dine alfresco at the picnic table. Be sure to find time for a BBQ throughout your stay, with the sound of waves and smell of sea salt filling the air around you. Those here on a sporting holiday can store equipment in the lockable garden shed.

Play a round on the James Braid designed links course at Brora Golf Club (0.5 miles) for a challenging game in a breathtaking setting. Mountain bikers should head to the Highland Wildcat Trails at Golspie (6 miles) which includes the longest descent in the UK from 1300m above sea-level. There are routes to suit all ages and abilities from novices to experienced riders, from scenic green trails through woodlands and low ground through to the fast descents and high jumps of the exhilarating black runs.

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.
