Fishing in the limestone lochs and golfing on the most northerly course are just a couple of the attractions. Locally the Smoo Caves and Cape Wrath, which have the highest cliffs in Britain, are worth a visit.

A wee highland gem - what you see is what you get

  • 4 of 5

We had a late arrival, which caused no problems. The cottage is not large, but we don't tend to spend much time inside anyway - perfectly sufficient for our needs. Well equipped, clean & tidy. Janet was very accommodating; even gave us her own toaster when it turned out the one in the cottage didn't work. We had a fantastic stay and there are plenty to see and do in the area. We will return in the future and will recommend this place to others. Many thanks Han & Ian

nice, clean, well equipped little cottage!

  • 4 of 5

We had a fine stay in this nice property. The cottage is small but well equipped and well taken care of. Reasonable price too. Maybe a bit small for 4 adults but for couples (with kids?) sufficient, I think.

The village is nearby and so are several beaches. We had wonderful walks both inland and along the coast. We liked both buzzards and puffins a lot and we fell in love with the Highlands.

We definitely recommend it, especially to people who prefer a non-pretentious quiet place in wonderful surroundings.
