Recroy is a detached holiday cottage nestled on a remote hillside above the tiny hamlet of Nedd which offers breathtaking views along the western shore of Loch Nedd.

Located two miles south east of Drumbeg, the single storey accommodation is comfortable and well equipped and includes two bedrooms, a fitted kitchen, dining room and sitting room with multi-fuel stoves, and a large lean-to play area for the children for rainy days. The pretty orchard garden is a wonderfully peaceful place to spend the evening, dining or simply relaxing. Recroy provides a great holiday home for all the family, and is well placed for guests to explore the attractions of the area including the coast, hill walking, cycling and wildlife watching.


The property is surrounded by breathtaking scenery and is a comfortable retreat in beautiful Sutherland.

Recroy was absolutely spotless upon arrival. It was very well equipped with the only neighbours being the passing sheep. I especially liked the relative isolation of this part of Scotland, which is exactly what I wanted, a get away from it all type of holiday.

My husband, sister and myself all senior citizens stayed at Recroy for one week from 13th September and found it disgusting. There was no running hot water apart from the shower and a note left on the table said that we should light the fire for hot water. The weather was beautiful and it was much too hot for a fire. However we had to light it but there was no bucket or shovel for the ashes and after two days we couldn't get the logs to burn because of all the ash build up so we had to carry hot water in saucepans from the shower or use the kettle. The dishwasher was broken the baskets were off the runners and could not be fixed so the door wouldn't close. No washing up bowl so had to use the sink which was disgusting and stained badly. There were cobwebs on the ceilings. There wasn't one shelf in the fridge and as we had stopped for shopping it all had to be piled on top of the salad box including bottles of wine.The shower room was disgusting and the tiles and round the edges were full of mildew. The floors were badly badly stained. Some of the windows were so dirty we couldn't see out of them. No cupboards to store food in it all had to be left on top of the work surface. I had driven 80 miles to reach Recroy, arriving in the evening after our late flight from Bristol to Inverness airport and if I hadn't been so tired we would never have stayed there. Couldn't get a signal on our mobile phones so was unable to phone the owner/caretaker to complain. The whole place need a thorough clean and was in a bad state of disrepair. If you like home comforts then stay away from Recroy.

A great location spoiled
Expected a basic cottage (judged by site photos) but it was neglected & unclean. No racks in fridge, problems with using dishwasher & T. V, which we had to solve for ourselves, mould in walk in shower, on draining board & around taps, table tennis table was propped up underneath with a garden chair & condensation on windows spoiled the view .

The holiday was very relaxing with beautiful views from the property. The scenery in the area is outstanding.
