Set close to the remote and breathtaking Loch Laxford, this delightful holiday bungalow makes a fabulous base for keen nature-lovers, anglers and walkers seeking a welcoming and peaceful holiday home.

Enjoying a quiet location in the beautiful Sutherland countryside, this delightful property makes a fabulous base for families keen to discover this breathtaking part of the Scottish Highlands. Fishing for brown trout, seat trout and salmon can be arranged on Loch More (10.5 miles) and Loch Stack (6 miles), and bird-watchers can take the ferry to Handa Island (7 miles) to see puffins, guillemots and razorbills. This is also a glorious area for hill walking and mountain biking. Heading north to Kinlochbervie, sea angling is possible, or you could simply explore the stunning beaches along the coast. The idyllic village of Scourie (6 miles) has a shop and pub and is home to the most northerly palm trees in the world.

On entering this pretty holiday home, you will find the light and tastefully furnished lounge. With a woodburner, TV and comfortable seating, this attractively decorated room is an ideal space to unwind in at the end of a fantastic day. Exploring this welcoming property further, the spacious kitchen/diner features a delightful dining area perfect for enjoying a family meal together, and is equipped with an oven, microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. You will also find three fresh, snug and cosy bedrooms: a single, a twin and a super king-size zip-and-link which can be made up as a twin room on request. The bathroom is complete with a shower over the bath and a WC.

Going outside, the large private and walled garden features trees, bushes and wild flora. Please note that a burn (stream) tumbles past the house, just on the other side of the stone wall.


Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
