The House

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

I walked 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.

The kitchen is open plan with the lounge - (who wants to be stuck in the kitchen on their own) & has usual mod-cons - electric hob and double oven, microwave, dishwasher, fridge/freezer.
There is a utility room with sink, washing machine and tumble drier.


The main double bedded room is en-suite
with its own shower, toilet and wash-hand basin. Fitted wardrobes.

Heating is by oil but fuel enough for the first couple of days will be left for those wanting to use the multi-fuel stove in the lounge.

Sunrise over Clashnessie Bay from Ocean Surf

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.
