Please note There are 5 steps from the patio to the garden.\n\n Shepherd’s Cottage is a charming detached 19th-century croft cottage set amidst stunning scenery in the heart of spectacular Sutherland. It shares it’s courtyard setting with a second holiday cottage but the owners have been careful to ensure neither cottage is overlooked and each has its own private fully enclosed and ’dog friendly’ garden. Having undergone a complete refurbishment by its farming owners the cottage provides a high standard of accommodation in a completely unspoilt setting. The pretty sitting room has an original reclaimed shepherd’s cottage wood-burner which makes a delightful focal point as well as providing a warm and cosy ambience. There is a bright contemporary kitchendining room and an original staircase leads up to two pretty bedrooms with colour coordinated soft furnishings and high quality beds. Accessed by a rough track and set in its own private and fully enclosed gardens it enjoys stunning views across the Kyle of Sutherland to the hills beyond. The property is set on a working farm and the owner’s sheep and Aberdeen Angus cattle graze nearby.\nThe area is renowned for its beauty and wildlife. Deer eagles otters osprey pine marten and numerous birds are all present in the vicinity. There are renowned mountain biking trails in the local area and fishing golf hill walking climbing and a wide variety of water sports are all local pastimes.\nWhilst located in a quiet countryside setting it is easily accessible for exploring the whole of the Highland region. Head west along a spectacular route with mountains lochs and rivers to Ullapool and Lochinver. A drive to the far north provides equally breathtaking scenery. Head south and Inverness the capital of the Highlands is just over an hour’s drive. Watch salmon leaping at the Falls of Shin visit Royal Dornoch with its beautiful sandstone cathedral award-winning sandy beach and championship golf course or explore the grand house and gardens of Dunrobin Castle seat of the Dukes of Sutherland.

    Loved it , absolutely loved this cottage. Nicest we have been to so far ! Nice location too , plenty of touristy stuff in all directions nearby, but far enough to keep that secluded rural feel.

    We had the most amazing time at Shepherds Cottage. It was well equipped, very comfortable and with the most stunning views. The owners were so kind, helpful and informative about the area.

    If looking for a beautiful, quiet, clean, comfortable & rejuvenating respite from the world... Shepherd's Cottage is the place to holiday. Nestled in a rural area perfect for nature lovers and/or artists, this cottage is a most excellent home away from home. From the delicious items in the welcoming basket to the maps, books and local information on the shelves, the wonderful owners have mindfully thought of everything I could have possibly needed.

    Cosy comfortable cottage with stunning views. There is another cottage next door but because they both enjoy different aspects your not aware of having neighbours (except of course from the sheep and cattle ). A very relaxing place to be! The owners are welcoming, friendly and understanding.
