Situated just metres away from the shoreline of Loch Fleet, The Girnal is a fantastic property for large families and groups who are looking to explore Sutherland and everything it has to offer.

The property is a former granary that was once owned by The Duke of Sutherland, and is a cosy and homely retreat with views across the water from most rooms. The kitchen is a slightly unusual layout in that it is split across two adjoining rooms, which actually makes it easier when preparing meals for big groups. There are two living room areas - ideal for families with children that would like to have their own space in the evenings. Both sitting rooms have fires, so cosy up with your favourite tipple in hand and relax beside the glowing flames after a busy day of being out and about. All of the bedrooms in the property are on the first floor, all of which are equally charming and bright. The views from each bedroom are truly stunning, and there’s nothing more relaxing than listening to the sound of the water lapping on the shore as you drift off to sleep.

From golfing and fishing to historical castles and beaches, this holiday home is close by to it all. The Girnal is just a short drive from the village of Golspie which has all of the required amenities, and is the perfect private retreat for those looking for a bit of tranquillity. Nature lovers will love the abundance of animals that can be seen from the house itself, as well as the plentiful walks in the area, including Ben Bhraggie and the Big Burn Walk.

For smaller parties of up to four, check out Customs House which is located nearby.

    Holiday Protection Scheme

    This property is covered by our Holiday Protection Scheme.

    Holiday Protection Scheme

    Cottages & Castles Ltd. (acting as agents for property owners) provides a guarantee for tenants who have to cancel their holiday at a cottage.

    If it is necessary to cancel your holiday, for any of the reasons A 1-5 below, you may do so at any time up until the close of business on the last working day before your tenancy commences and we will refund your balance. Your deposit is not refundable. If you have made a late booking and paid in full you will receive your payment minus the normal deposit sum (usually 30%).

    There is no charge for this holiday protection – it is included in the cost of your holiday. Please note that the protection does not apply to holidays in our properties with codes beginning with P (usually castles, mansions and lodges).

    Deposits may be transferred to a different date for a holiday at the same property within 12 months of the original holiday date, subject to availability, but not, however, for a different property. If the new booking is at a higher rate the tenant must pay the extra cost. No refund will be made if the new date is at a lower rate.
