The combination of mountains, water and sky makes an awe-inspiring view, and not one easily forgotten. The languid roll of Shore Cottage at Croft 103 has been designed with the view in mind, and built using local timber, stone and traditional building techniques.
Any reservation placed at Shore Cottage is provisional as we need to check availability with the owner before confirming a booking. At Shore Cottage holidays run from Saturday to Saturday
The living space blends effortlessly with the outdoors through the use of floor-to-ceiling glass windows and doors which lead out to an expansive patio right on the shores' edge. Seating has been arranged so you can sit back and watch the ever-changing view (maybe with a warming whiskey in your hand!) and the under floor heating and impressive wood burner will ensure you are toasty warm. Much attention has been paid to the decor, which is minimalist in style with thoughtfully chosen bespoke pieces.
The brushed-steel kitchen, running along the back wall, supports Caithness stone worktops and is fully equipped with a state-of the-art cooker, microwave, dishwasher and fridge freezer. Outside you'll find a barbeque - perfect for cooking seafood straight from the loch or some lovely highland beef. A beautiful wooden dining table sits directly in front of the window, affording the best seats in the house.
Like Hill Cottage, a fabulous 7ft feather topped bed awaits you. Designed by artist blacksmith Sam Barlow, it is of leather and finished steel. It's really the heart of the property, and you'll never want to leave it! There's a chic industrial feeling to the room with lovely bespoke furniture such as the storage unit for clothes and fab lighting. Gorgeous drop curtains mean you can shut out the night should you want to. If you're feeling brave, there's a stunning outdoor bath, tucked away and out of sight - go on, we dare you!
The bathroom leads off of the bedroom and boasts a luxuriously deep roll top bath for two, situated just by the window so you can peek out at the lake and mountains. Lovely handmade tiles in sea blues and greens give a little colour to the room and the gentle lighting gives the room a peaceful feel.
Durness lies in the county of Sutherland on the North West tip of Great Britain. The wild remote and beautiful expanse of Cape Wrath enjoys one of the most dramatic landscapes in Europe. An abundance of wildlife and vast open space create an overwhelming experience. The village of Durness is surrounded by some of the best walking locations in the world and an endlessly fascinating environment, made for exploring.
A combination of spectacular natural features, not least the stunning coastline of towering cliffs, golden beaches backed by rugged mountains and expansive moorland have ensured our region boasts a well deserved reputation as a walkers paradise.
