“Hobbit house surrounded by rabbits!”

This house is popular, I booked a year in advance. It is tiny which should be no surprise as pics make this clear! Suitcases will go in the boot of your car, and don't bring too many clothes or shoes! Walking boots, beach shoes and one other will do! Small fridge, washing machine but no dishwasher, micro wave and electric cooker, wifi, furnishings by Anta. Bedroom, small shower, and one room for kitchen and living room make this a house for those who really get on with their partners or for solo travellers! Needs knife sharpener and hair dryer and I could have done with extra blanket but no one returned my calls to mobile. Rabbits all around and lively walks, even for me in worst summer in 43 years! Large tv useful when rainy!

We loved this cottage. Yes, it is small but it is very comfortable and has everything you could need. It is beautifully fitted out, with a large window looking straight on to the beach. The kitchen has everything you need, from a gorgeous little red Smeg fridge to plenty of equipment. There is a comfy sofa (a couple of cushions would be good here) and plenty of TV channels. The bathroom is tiny but the shower is good with plenty of hot water and large towels and bathrobes. The bed is comfortable and you can lie in comfort and look through the window up at the night sky. The location is stunning - a few seconds and you are on the beach. We walked a lot - on the beach, up to Faraid Head and through the sand dunes. Plenty of birds to see and friendly sheep just outside. We are definitely coming back!

“A beautiful house on a white sandy beach with turquoise sea”

Its a long way North but its worth every mile. The cottage is well equipped and sits on the dunes overlooking a wonderful bay of white sands. Lots to see and do in the area if you like the natural things and peace . Great for sunsets too. We had wonderful weather and were able to sit with a bottle of wine in the dunes as the sun went down. Lovely.

“Sea, beach and mountains and sunshine on north coast of Scotland”

The Beach Bothy is small, but warm, nicely finished and well equipped. The location is sensational - right on the beach in a beautiful bay of golden sand ( when the tide is out you can walk for 2 miles on the beach to the headland). Views of the mountains on one side and the sea on the other. Surrounded by wildlife. And the sun shone every day in March!
The home made chocolate cake on the table on arrival was another attention to detail that made this a very special place to stay.
You are miles from any big city or buzzing night life - but then that's the point. Absolutely fabulous.
