Spectacular Cottage in Pastoral Setting

  • 4 of 5

Our stay at Archway Cottage was very comfortable, relaxing and enriching. Roomy, modernized cottage with spectacular views of the Kyle of Sutherland. Immediate garden full of flowers with woods nearby for hiking. Easy access by road to Lairg, Bonar Bridge and beyond. Very friendly and accommodating landlord/lady. We even enjoyed our neighbors in the adjacent cottage. The two cottages are smartly arranged for either interaction or solitude. And the price is right. We couldn't be happier with our stay.
