Ideally situated for exploring the beautiful Scottish Highlands, this traditional and welcoming cottage is perfectly positioned close to a picturesque bay with stunning views.

Scenic single track roads lead round the coast to Kylesku and to Achiltibuie. There are charming villages and quiet sandy beaches with spectacular views of cliffs, sea and mountains at every turn. Lochinver is also home to a choice of excellent restaurants, craft shops, stores and a pub, all within walking distance from the property.

On entering this traditional cottage which is within walking distance of the village and its beautiful waterfront and working harbour, you will find yourself in the welcoming lounge with an open fire (which is available by prior request), TV and hi-fi, this is an ideal space for relaxing in after a great day exploring the stunning local area. Moving into the kitchen/diner, you will find an ideally situated dining area, and you will find the kitchen is fully equipped with everything you may need during your stay including an electric hob and oven, fridge/freezer, washing machine and microwave. Exploring this charming property further you will find a cosy and comfortable twin bedroom, and there is also a bathroom with a shower cubicle and WC.

Heatherbrae is situated in a perfect location and community of Lochinver - a great base for exploring both the northern parts of the highlands as well as going south. The 360 views from up on the hills were breath-taking. The place is everything a country cottage should be in terms of history and style. The bathroom is modern and clean with a greatRead more shower. The garden is almost magical in places. Mobile phone reception was very good and no internet access a refreshing change! A great place!

Perfect for our purposes. The lack of Wi-fi was not a problem for us as there was good mobile signal with 3 and EE networks.
