Kyle Cottage Sleeps 4 (2 Bedrooms)

Kyle Cottage faces both east and west but is predominantly south facing.

To the left of the entrance hall is a downstairs double room with its own shower room. To the right of the hall is a cosy but spacious sitting-room with two sofas and an armchair. Off this is a well-equipped kitchen including a dishwasher.

If you head upstairs from the sitting-room, there is a twin room with its own bathroom together with a comfy television area. The sofa (bed) here can be converted to provide extra accommodation at special request.

Leading on from the kitchen is one of the highlights of this cottage – a west facing garden room. It is pine lined, with under floor heating, soaks up non stop summer and winter light from both south and west, uninterrupted views, and has a sofa and a dining table for 6/8. French windows lead straight out via a seating area into the garden and beyond to the mountains of the west.

Centrally located very comfortable holiday home

  • 5 of 5

A very homely property, ideally situated if prepared to travel to eat out and to reach sites. This is not a negative as the scenery in all directions is incredible, and the position enables discovery of the 3 coasts and central Sutherland and Caithness.

The property is well equipped, nicely decorated in the style of a country cottage, and the garden is large and beautifully natural. Very welcoming owners who presented the property in spotless condition.

Optimal holiday cottage for visiting all of the North Highlands

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is situated at the begin of the single track road that

leads from Bonar Bridge to Ullapool (A837).

It is large, cozy and arranged on two floors with one bedroom and one bathroom for each floor.

The cottage is equipped with a well organized kitchen, a good wifi service, a well maintained garden and a very nice living room with wide windows to enjoy the amazing landscape around the cottage.

From the cottage it is possible to reach all the main places of North Highlands with one to two hours of car driving.

Liebevoll, Wohnlich, Gemütlich

  • 4 of 5

Haus mit Liebevollen Details und gut ausgestattet, Leider ist der Teppichboden im Bad unhygienisch und die restlichen Teppiche waren für Allergiker nicht geeignet, die Plastiktischdecke war sehr klebrig (kann man aber runter geben). Ansonsten waren wir sehr zufrieden, hübscher Garten, sehr netter vermieter, super Trockner :) Preisleistung +++
