Situated within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this is a true haven for nature lovers. There is an abundance of adventures from the doorstep of the property. Explore the dramatic scenery, climb mountains and hike the rolling hills.

The village of Durness is 0.5 miles away with a couple of eateries and shops. Scotland’s most popular driving route, the North Coast 500 passes through the area too, with many people stopping off to visit here. Don’t skip a visit to the magnificent Sango Bay (0.5 miles), a superb, sandy, cliffside beach, which is home to a wide variety of wildlife and dramatic scenery, and is popular for fishing.

Just 3.5 miles away is the Golden Eagle Zip Line. Take a ride on the most northerly zipline next to the Atlantic Ocean over the beautiful beach of Ceannabeinne. While here, you could also take a walk on the Ceannabeinne Township Trail, a route on the site of an abandoned village.

If you prefer to stay firmly on the ground, visit Balnakeil Beach (2 miles), a wide sandy beach backed by dunes, that looks like something straight out of a holiday brochure. Take a walk around the beach and the headland and enjoy the calmness of the bay.

If any members of the group like to play golf, Durness Golf Club (2 miles) offers a spectacular course with a challenging final hole. Those who enjoy fishing can try out trout and salmon fishing from the beaches, or head to Loch Caladail (1.5 miles) or Loch Borralie (2.8 miles) for trout fishing.

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.
