    Shepherd’s Cottage is a charming 19th-century croft cottage set amidst stunning scenery in the heart of spectacular Sutherland. 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 kitchen/dining 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.
    The 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.
    Whilst 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. Beach 18 miles. Shop 3 miles, pub ¾ miles and restaurant 4 miles.

    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.

    We had a lovely week at the cottage. The cottage was spotless. Anne and Robert were available if needed and supplied good knowledge about places to go and visit. We really enjoyed the peace and quiet of the cottage.

    An idyllic cottage in a magical setting. Even though the weather was very changeable during the week we were there, literally sunny one minute then drizzling the next, nothing could dampen our enjoyment.

    We have had a fabulous week at Shepherds Cottage. The cottage itself is very well equipped, very comfortable and spotlessly clean. The location is just stunning and it is easy to get to many places from there. Ann and Robert the hosts are lovely and very helpful, our dogs were very happy about their treats in the very nice welcome package in the kitchen. We will definitely be returning.

    Perfect cottage in a perfect location. Really comfy beds and excellent shower. Facilities in cottage were amazing. Garden wonderful for our two dogs secure as long as you don’t have excellent jumping dogs. Ours showed interest in sheep in next field but didn’t attempt to jump over walls which were approx 1 and a half meters high so enclosed garden was a treat. Scenery and views lovely. A very kind gesture of a welcome box with goodies in was appreciated. We planned a delivery of shopping the night we arrived by a supermarket which worked out well for us. Anne the owner was very kind and helpful. We would love to go back the beaches are great for dogs and us, rock pools fab.

    Completely agree with previous reviews. Top marks and thankyou to Anne & Robert for making their property available to rent; I highly commend what they are doing/providing regarding their property and themselves i.e they're friendly, welcoming, informative and genuinely wanting people to enjoy staying at their wonderful cottage. You can tell a lot of consideration, love and care has gone into the property. I am already planning to return to this cottage, also the area is stunning.
