My self catering flat stands in my family’s Sutherland croft, on a hill approximately 153 metres above sea level. The property is compact and cosy, with electric central heating, and it is my priority that visitors have everything they need for a comfortable stay. The lounge/kitchen area is fully equipped with hob, oven, microwave, toaster, steamer, fridge, washing machine, dishwasher, pots, crockery, cutlery, table and chairs, Sky TV, Wi-Fi being installed, comfortable sofa-bed and armchair. The bedroom has a kingsize bed, and ample wardrobe storage. For the shower and washbasin, I have provided Arran Aromatics lovely hand- and body-wash products to relax and soothe you.

Because this is a highland home, I have kept a certain sense of tradition in the decor, with a variety of plaid fabrics, and some old photographs and objects which I hope you will enjoy looking at. You may browse a selection of books by a diversity of Scottish authors.

Ruth's place is one of the nicest places we've been with airbnb, it is tastefully decorated, sparkling clean and the view is terrific, on a hill overlooking the sea and the yellow gorse fields of spring. We did not want to leave it at the end of the day and we can wholeheartedly …

Ruth's little apartment is a real treasure and a wonderful and quiet place to relax and to enjoy a gorgeous view. Ruth was very welcoming and gave us some good advice on where to go in the area. The only thing we regret is that we could not stay any longer.
