Accommodation description

This detached, former fisherman/crofter’s cottage has been tastefully restored to provide very comfortable holiday accommodation. The property overlooks the Kyles of Tongue, a dramatic expanse of pristine golden sand, and the many skerries that create this fabulous coastline. The ever-changing seascape and light make this area a truly get-away-from-it-all holiday experience. The area has much to offer, with Ben Hope and Ben Loyal for the serious climber and low level coastal walks. Smoo Cave, Castle of Mey, the former home of the late Queen Mother, Cape Wrath and a day trip from John O’Groats to the Orkney Isles are within a short drive. Loch and sea fishing are available, and a wide range of seabirds, such as puffins, waders and hen harriers can be easily spotted. Shop 500 yards, pub and restaurant 50 yards.

Ground floor: Living room. Dining room/kitchen with tiled floor. Study. Shower room with toilet. First floor: 1 double bedroom.

Multi-fuel burner in living room (initial fuel included). Electric heaters and electricity by meter reading. Oil central heating (controlled by owner), bed linen and towels included. Freeview TV. DVD. Electric cooker. Microwave. Washer/dryer. Dishwasher. Fridge/freezer. Small garden with sitting-out area. Parking (2 cars). No smoking.

    cottage was very nice, but some of equipment did not appear to have instruction books, the boiler for the heating was broken and the toilet leaked.

    This was a very expensive cottage with a lovely kitchen but unfortunately a very uncomfortable bed, a very noisy boiler and not true to say there is parking, there are two patches of very uneven grass. The location was brilliant but cottage didn't live up to expectations I am afraid!

    Response from:

    Response on behalf of the owner; I am sorry that you were disappointed. No-one else has commented that the bed is uncomfortable: we will investigate on our next visit. Yes, the boiler is a little noisy, but no other tenant has complained. There is adequate parking: the grass may be a little (not very) uneven, but this is the north of Scotland, not suburbia. August is inevitably more expensive than less popular months.
