    All on the ground floor.
    Bedroom 3: With LPG wood burner, double bed and Freeview TV.

    LPG underfloor central heating, gas, electricity, bed linen, towels, Wi-Fi and logs for wood burner included. Welcome pack.

    Enclosed 1-acre garden with decking and garden furniture. Hot tub for 4 (private). 300-acre croftland (shared with owner). 3 dogs welcome, to be kept on a lead (working croft). Private parking for 4 cars. No smoking. Please note: There are 2 steps to the decking and hot tub, and there is a fenced pond in the grounds adjacent to the garden.

    This detached and quintessential, romantic hideaway lies deep in the Sutherland hills on the owner’s croft with sheep and beef cattle. Over 200 years old and accessed by a track, it has 2ft thick stone walls and traditional tin roof, and has undergone a unique and innovative conversion, together with an adjoining stone barn. Transformed into a holiday home offering a bright and contemporary living space, it retains the very best of its original charm. A large wood burner and uninterrupted views across miles of open hillside, as well as a hot tub on the elevated decking outside, add to the experience.
    The stunning main living area is open plan, with a large wood burner at one end and a well-equipped, contemporary kitchen with handmade units at the other. Steep ladder stairs lead up from the kitchen to a bedroom, which occupies the whole of the mezzanine area. Very low double doors open through to the ground floor en-suite bedroom, but due to the height and depth of the stone wall, it is advisable to access this bedroom from the part-covered walkway around the perimeter of the cottage. This charming bedroom has a hairdryer provided and a feature claw-foot bath, as well as an adjoining en-suite. At the opposite end of the cottage is a bright shower room, accessed via the part-covered decking. Another bedroom (also with hairdryer provided) is located within a separate stone barn conversion a few steps from the main cottage, and enjoys the same incredible views down the glen to the hills beyond. Capercaillie Cottage is superbly well equipped and furnished, with deep leather sofas and high quality appliances throughout. It is set within 1 acre of grounds, with raised decking and hot tub located just outside the main entrance, with a feature ornamental pond below.
    The owners work 300 acres of the surrounding croftland and hills, which you are welcome to explore with their prior permission. Wildlife is prolific in the area, with red deer, pine martens and abundant birdlife, including rare red kites, golden eagles, oystercatchers and curlews. Whilst the location is completely secluded, the charming village of Rogart is 4 miles away, with its thriving village pub and restaurant, shop, post office and railway station. Visit historic and archeological sites, as well as romantic castles such as Dunrobin, seat of the Dukes of Sutherland. Mountain biking along lovely forest trails, golf, fishing and various watersports are all available. The picturesque seaside town of Dornoch, with its award-winning sandy beach and championship golf course, is just 20 minutes’ drive away. For the less energetic, sit back, relax, enjoy the hot tub and watch the ever-changing scenery from this inspiring and totally unspoilt location. Beach 12 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 4 miles.

    Fantastic cottage in a great location. Very dog-friendly. Very kind and considerate hosts. We came for a holiday home in a quiet and rural setting as a base camp for exploring the eastern and northern Highlands. Capercaillie Cottage was exactly what we were looking for. Beautifully built to a very high standard. Would definitely return.

    A wonderful relaxing week at Capercaillie. Perfect for exploring both east and west coasts. Situated in wild and remote countryside, yet easy to access. The cottage itself is rustic, quirky, immaculately clean and very well equipped. The separate little annexe room just perfect when daughter and partner decided to come with us too. Dog friendly with lots of walks and a secure garden - lovely pond which was fenced off, although he found his way through and took a dip once (oops - sorry). Hot tub just right for relaxing after days out sightseeing, watching the sun go down over the heathery moors. Very mindful. Lovely friendly hosts, lots of helpful sightseeing suggestions including sublime pies from Lochinver. Dornoch - special little town for exploring and coffees, recommend the village store and deli! Local beaches amazing, walked for miles without seeing anyone. Thank you - loved it

    Beautiful well presented cottage with the added benefits of a peaceful and tranquil setting in which to sit and unwind in the hot tub. Mackle & Eimear are great hosts, very helpful, informative, but happy not to impose on guests and respect their privacy. The drive from East to West coast I’d gorgeous, breathtaking and well worth doing. Our dogs loved the secure garden and owners fields, which they were allowed to explore. We all left on Saturday with a heavy heart, after a great relaxing week.

    We had the most wonderful week stay at Capercaillie Cottage. The secure garden, empty fields and fabulous accommodation were perfect for us and our nervous dog. We've already booked to go back next year and recommended to cottage to lots of friends.

    Beautiful cottage in fabulous surroundings. The perfect location to explore the surrounding area by foot, bike or car. The cottage is the perfect place to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet after a day out exploring. The owners were helpful and welcoming. I couldn’t recommend the cottage more.

    Cannot praise this cottage, location and owners enough. Spotlessly clean and comfortable, and most importantly peaceful. Mac and Eimear went beyond the call of duty to make us feel at home and even helped to keep our little boy entertained. There is such a good feel good factor about the whole place. The location is perfect to see the East coast and a gorgeous coast road to take you to the West coast if you fancy exploring. Really miss the cottage and the bird song. Cant wait to go back.
