With beautiful sea views and a cosy sitting room with open fire, this homely cottage makes a wonderful base for holidaymakers, regardless of the weather.

Situated on the outskirts of the ancient crofting village of Durness lies this large holiday home. With simple, no-nonsense accommodation, the property is comfortable and minimal, though well equipped throughout. Able to sleep nine people in two double rooms, a family room with three single beds and a room containing adult bunks, this home is a great location for anyone looking to go on holiday with a large group of friends or their extended family. With the village of Durness close by, with its wide range of activities, this makes a great base to explore northern Scotland.


RECENT CUSTOMER REVIEWS

The location is wonderful and the view from the kitchen window is outstanding. There are many fine walks from the property and we didn't need to use the car. The house is well equipped and clean.

In and around Durness is simply stunning. It was great after a day out exploring to come back to the well presented property. The space was good in and outside the house. It was cosy and homely with everything you could possibly need in the kitchen (and more!).

The house was lovely and comfortable. I have never stayed in a better equipped house, there were lots of crockery and cooking utensils. The log burner and coal fire made it cosy as it was unusually cold for May. The house isn't "posh" which suited us fine with a 2 year old and our dog, but it was homely, had a lovely feel and we would highly recommend it. The housekeeper was lovely and the view from the kitchen window cannot be beaten! Thank you for a lovely holiday.

Nice area
Had a lovely time up in Durness. The house was comfortable and warm with a multifuel stove in the kitchen and an open fire in the sitting room. The local shop delivers coal and it was waiting for us when we arrived so we were cosy from the first night. Plenty of nice walks and stunning beaches in the area and Smoo Cave is well worth a visit. The drive down to Ullapool is lovely as well . Would stay again.
