The house, in its own grounds & surrounded by croft land and sheep, is just a few minutes walk from the sea; laid out on one floor -
we have tried to make it as 'accessible' as plans allow.
The lounge has a cathedral
ceiling giving a feeling of space with lots of natural light from the three
windows in the ceiling and two sets of patio doors - one door leads onto the
veranda which overlooks the beach
and another door leading into the conservatory/dining room,
also overlooking the bay and the hills (& huge waterfall) to the
west. There is oil fired central heating and also a multi-fuel
stove in the lounge.

Dining / conservatory
sleepily into the conservatory as day was breaking in early
March to find the most magnificent stag grazing right
outside the largest window, not ten feet away - I stared at
him for about a minute, he must have sensed me and looked up
- we stared at each other for about 30 seconds; time stood
still then he turned slightly and was off. That moment of
connection made it so special. One of the bonuses of coming
early or late in the season as stags don't leave the higher
places so often in the summer.
at sunrise; has a door leading out onto a
small veranda at the front of the house.

One of the wonderful
things about being this far north in the high summer is it is light late
at night - e.g. at 11pm it is adequately light to go out for a walk, the
day lasts forever - quite magical.
