Situated down a quiet lane, just 50 yards from a stunning sandy bay, Rosslyn Cottage is a charming traditional detached stone cottage. Originally a fisherman’s cottage, the property has been superbly renovated throughout and now provides bright and spacious accommodation in a wonderful setting. The large living room has a warm welcoming ambience, with a wood burner acting as the focal point. This leads through to a spacious fully fitted kitchen/dining room. Wide traditional stairs lead up to the first floor. Here, there are two beautifully presented bedrooms, one with a kingsize bed and the second with twin beds, as well as a pull-out bed. Both bedrooms are en-suite and enjoy superb sea views. Outside, there is a lovely sun-trap courtyard with table and chairs for al fresco dining.

Just across the road is a sweeping sandy beach, with stunning views to the Sutherland mountains beyond. The small fishing harbour has a pier and a variety of small local craft. It also boasts an excellent seafood restaurant, pub (seasonal), café and a traditional links golf course which is open to visitors.
