A perfect stay - very hard to leave!

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was beautiful and truly felt like home. We thoroughly enjoyed the Durness area and wish we had spent more than our four nights there. Our hostess took very good care of us, and the cottage was even better than we had anticipated... And the starry nights were just spectacular!

Lovely cottage, fully equipped, in the best location possible

  • 5 of 5

Cottage was very clean, very well equipped and in a stunning location. The walks into Durness on the Manse Road were a joy, with wildlife in abundance, during our stay we have seen Minke Whales at Polin Bay, otters on the kyle, daily Herons on the Kyle and seals on a boat trip down at Kylesku..which is a must day out . Can't wait to come back,

Peaceful, beautiful Location

  • 4 of 5

Lovely cosy wee cottage. Very clean and furnished to a high standard. Situated very close to a shingle beach on one side and a little behind property is a lovely Loch you can walk to. Plenty of opportunities for nice walks, particularly nice one if you walk beyond the Cape Wrath Ferry port. Only slight downside to the property is that none of the windows look out to the view, had the weather been nice however, we would have enjoyed sitting at the picnic bench which faces onto the beach. Would definitely return to the area as scenery is breathtaking although perhaps to take full advantage of this would book the 'sister' cottage, Shore cottage which has better view out to the sea.

Kyleview cottage - can't wait to go back!

  • 5 of 5

The holiday begins as you first catch sight of the holiday cottage location as you drive alongside the Kyle of Durness. Kyleview is the most delightful location with fabulous views, spotlessly clean with everything you need for a relaxing peaceful holiday and a great base for discovering the most northern westerly parts of Scotland. Ideally located for walkers, fishing, photography and nature lovers. Didn't want to leave and will most certainly return in the future!

Third stay at Kyleview

  • 5 of 5

This was the third year in a row that we stayed at Kyleview Cottage and that should tell you more than any review!

Kyleview is in a wonderful location, looking South along the length of the Kyle of Durness. The cottage is an unassuming bungalow from the outside but the inside has been modernised and brought up to date to a very high standard. A range cooker in the kitchen, two modern bathrooms (with showers only, if it matters) and three bedrooms with comfy beds and best quality cotton bedding. The best thing about staying at Kyleview is Roz, who looks after the two cottages. She's always there if you need something but never interfering if you're just looking for peace and quiet.

Kyleview Cottage is the ideal location for peace and getting away from it all, but still with a handful of other properties nearby. This also means that the local shop in Durness doesn't open on Sundays - plan ahead!

In conclusion, and to paraphrase a famous actor - we'll be back...
