Fearna Cottage is a very spacious, single-storey cottage situated on a private estate in a stunning location right on the shores of Lochan Fearna. This detached cottage is located amidst the unbelievably picturesque landscape of North West Sutherland surrounded by lochs, hills and superb, pristine beaches. The living room has a warm, welcoming wood burner and patio doors that drink in the amazing views down the loch, which is just a few yards away. The kitchen/dining room is extremely well-equipped, with integral appliances and a large dining table for up to eight guests.

The owners run a small fishery and visitors are welcome to fish the numerous hill lochs for wild brown trout free of charge. There is also a stocked rainbow trout fishery which is available on a day ticket basis. There are wonderful walks direct from the cottage and an abundance of wildlife in the surrounding area.

About the local area

Discover a wonderful variety of contrasting landscapes that will make a lasting impression, from the remote rock-hewn wilderness of far north west Sutherland to the green rolling coastal lands by the Cromarty Firth. Wherever you travel you're surrounded by some of the most outstanding remote natural beauty in Scotland.

The Highlands is not only blessed with wonderful countryside, there are also miles of dramatic coastline, with quiet pristine sandy beaches, picturesque sea lochs and a scattering of pretty coastal villages close to clear turquoise waters. This is a place to really enjoy `The Great Outdoors', with plenty of activities from mountain climbing and white water rafting to gentle family walks and mountain biking for all abilities.

This part of the British Isles is also a great place to see wildlife; unsurprisingly wildlife flourishes in this great wilderness and there are plenty of opportunities to get out and about on land and sea - take one of the many boat trips on offer for close encounters with seals, whales and dolphins or simply get out into the glens, hills and forests to see eagles, deer and maybe even the elusive pine martin to name but a few.

For a holiday at a more leisurely pace visit the region's many historical sites, ancient castles, stately homes and fascinating museums, learn about the Highlands rich history and culture, its clans and conflicts, the tragedy of the Highland Clearances and its role in the Jacobite risings.

Summer visitors to the Highlands (mostly July and August) may not want to miss the annual Highland Games, which are held across the Highlands and are a unique spectacle of athletic, dancing and piping events which should not be missed!
