Property code: CA399

In an elevated position with spectacular views over Scourie Bay, this much-loved property is ideal for large families looking for a remote getaway.

Surrounded by the rugged beauty of north-west Scotland, this stunningly situated retreat is the perfect base for a group of adventurers to set off and discover the hills and habitats of this unique Highland coastline.

 

The property itself is a traditional coastal cottage; a sweet boarded structure on an elevated grassy lookout. Inside, the rooms are a blend of modern and quaint, with warm cheery spaces that you’ll love just hanging out in.

 

The heart of the property is a large open-plan area, which catches the light from the bay and showcases the cottage’s stunning panoramic views. With a cosy sitting room at one end and a dining space at the other, it’s great for enjoying a sociable meal with the group or curling up by the fire. Next door is the kitchen, a handy space with everything you need to rustle up meals for your active troops. Also on the ground floor is the first of your bedrooms: a twin with a neighbouring shower room, useful for guests who want to get up and out early without disturbing others.

 

Upstairs on the first floor are a further two bedrooms: two doubles which each unzip to form twins on request. Each is decorated in a delightful Scottish style with homely touches to make your night’s sleep a restful one.

 

The exterior of the property makes the most of the sights and sounds of this remarkable location, and with an enclosed garden, you can enjoy the fresh air in privacy and comfort.

  • Sleeps 7+1
  • 4 bedrooms – 2 double zip-and-link (which can be made up as twins on request) 1 twin, single with addtional child's single bed

  • Arrival: 17:00 onwards
  • Departure: before 10:00 unless otherwise stated in your arrival details
  • Sorry, no dogs allowed

The cottage is situated overlooking the ragged coast of Scourie Bay. Less than 1.5 miles along the shore, you'll find the little village of Scourie, an old crofting village now with seafood eateries and fishing spots.

From here, you can make your way around the dramatic north-west coast. Journey to Handa Island; there's a ferry from the mainland to Handa from about 3 miles north of Scourie. Here, you can soak in the view of the coastline and take one of several walking trails around the unspoilt wildlife habitats of the island, discovering cliffs and the ‘Great Stack', a monumental rocky outcrop that seems to defy physics.

There's plenty to do inland too, from loch fishing to kayaking, and there's a collection of peaks — Ben Stack, Arkle and Foinaven to name a few — that provide a day's mountaineering for the brave at heart. These climbs are wonderful territory for coastal and Highland wildlife, so don't forget to pack your binoculars and your camera.

Had a fantastic week, 5 stars are insufficient to describe the location and views. The cottage is a home from home, very cosy. The kitchen has everything that you need, well equipped. Would hope to return one day.

A fabulous base for exploring the north west of Scotland. The views in both directions are wonderful and the location, just off the main road, is perfect for accessing all areas of interest. The accommodation is generous and comfortable.

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.
