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.

Stayed here after a long day travelling. Ruth went out of her way to make us feel welcome and we really enjoyed our stay. Had a fantastic sleep and it was made better by the wonderful views from the bedroom and living room. The Croft contains some really nice, thoughtful touches …

This is an excellent place to stay for many, many reasons. Location is wonderful for exploring the North (less than 2 hours from the very tip). We loved being in a small village that had just enough convenience without being too built up. The view is absolutely stunning and the p…
