A beautifully converted steading with a wood burner, ideal for a cosy night in, and with many opportunities for fishing and other outdoor pursuits nearby.

This luxurious property is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with a wonderful, elevated position and sea view towards Sango Bay. It’s a haven for hill walkers and mountain climbers, with exceptionally beautiful beaches and dramatic scenery, and is renowned for its trout and salmon fishing.

The village has a couple of well-stocked independent shops and restaurants within walking distance.

Entering the charming property through the front door into the hall, follow the hall into a light and bright, stylish lounge, enjoying magnificent countryside views with Sango Bay in the distance. The perfect place to relax in the evenings, light the wood burner here and enjoy a good movie or your favourite TV programme on Sky Q after an epic day out exploring the local area. The lounge has patio doors that lead directly outside to a paved seating area where you can sit and watch the world go by whilst enjoying all the view has to offer. Returning through to the hall, you continue into a very well-equipped kitchen/diner – the perfect place to cook up a storm. The kitchen hosts a Neff double oven and induction hob, fridge/freezer, microwave and integrated dishwasher and washing machine.

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.
