Off road parking for 1 car.\n\n Melness Cottage is a traditional croft cottage situated in a stunning location with panoramic views across the Kyle of Tongue. This detached two storey cottage is situated in the quiet hamlet of Skinnet in North West Sutherland. Just a short walk from the sea and surrounded by majestic mountain ranges awe inspiring beaches and pretty harbour villages the cottage provides an ideal base from which to explore this wonderful and totally unspoilt region. The cottage has been upgraded and refurbished whilst retaining its original charm. There is a cosy lounge a separate dining room and a small but well equipped kitchen. On the first floor are two good sized bedrooms and a bright modern family bathroom. The views across the bay with the mountains beyond are simply stunning. There is a large garden mainly laid to lawn bounded by an original low stone wall. Whilst this far North West coastline seems wild and remote there is a good selection of amenities and facilities in the immediate area. There is also a local bar and restaurant just 12 mile from the cottage. Perched on a promontory overlooking the magnificent Kyle of Tongue the nearby village of Tongue enjoys spectacular views across the sea with the mountains of Ben Hope and Ben Loyal in the distance. The village has a good selection of local amenities including a general store two hotels with restaurants post office petrol station craft shops and village church. There is a slipway and harbour for small boats within a mile of the property. " https://img.chooseacottage.co.uk/Property/718/840/718069.jpg CC511315

    Enjoyed our stay at the cottage everything you need for a comfortable stay, Fantastic views from the cottage over the Kyle of Tongue, Nice walk down to Talmine bay and harbour. Cottage could do with some updating, Fridge/Freezer would be a big help as it is along way to the shops.

    Good cottage, DVD didn't play any discs, which was unfortunate with 3 children. The property is advertised as sleeping 4/6 but is realistically not set up for parties bigger than 4 due to its size and seating availability in the lounge. There is a pull out sofa in the lounge but too much of a faff with the rest of the furniture in the lounge. Otherwise well appointed and very clean, cupboard and fridge space is limited in the kitchen, which makes it difficult to shop for a few days given the remote location. In a great spot, lovely views and friendly neighbours. Cragagon Hotel down the road offered a lovely meal and friendly service, although struggled to cater for our vegetarian on the night. A strange whining noise is very apparent when its windy outside, this was impossible to sleep through. Would stay again but not as a 5.

    Spectacular views from the house. Beautiful beaches where you can spend fantastic evenings with the family. Lovely neighbors. Dream place to get lost without too much tourism
