With spectacular views towards the Outer Hebrides, this characterful timber bungalow lies half a mile from the sea in a secluded crofting village and is ideal for outdoor holidays in the Highlands.

Set in the remote fishing village of Scourie, this is a perfect cottage for those wanting to explore the wonderful dramatic scenery of the North West Highlands. A ferry leaves regularly from nearby Tarbet and crosses to the bird sanctuary on Handa Island where many species of birds and plants will delight ornithologists and botanists. Loch, river and sea fishing can all be enjoyed near Scourie. You can walk the 4 miles from Blairmore to Sandwood Bay, reputed to be the most magnificent beach in the UK and only accessible on foot, or you can explore south past Quinag to Lochinver, or north to Kinlochbervie. Or you can take a day trip to Cape Wrath, mainland Britain's most northerly point.

On entering this simple and practical but characterful and cosy detached timber bungalow, you will find yourself in the pretty and welcoming lounge/diner. With comfy seating, TV ,DVD and radio/CD player this is an ideal place for relaxing in at the end off a busy day. You will also find an ideally situated dining area. Moving into the kitchen, you will find it fully equipped with everything you may need during your stay including an electric oven, dishwasher, microwave, fridge/freezer, coffee machine, washing machine and tumble dryer. You will also find a delightful sun porch, with table, seating and plenty of room to dry outdoor clothing. Exploring this cosy cottage further, you will find three comfortable bedrooms.
