The property

Lairg 1.5 miles.

Snuggling into the side of a gentle hillside, close to the village of Lairg is this typical whitewashed stone crofter’s cottage.

This lovely cottage makes a very attractive holiday retreat for those who really want to get away from it all!

Accessed via a track that leads up through a field to the cottage, the elevated location ensures stunning views, making it ideal for a family group or group of friends who will appreciate the cosy ambience of the wee cottage and the unspoilt beauty of the area.

There are two bedrooms under typical low sloping ceilings, one a twin and one a double.

All the other accommodation is at ground floor level with a main living area comprising of a fitted galley style kitchen open to the sitting area which has a fabulous, cosy woodburning stove.

Just across the hall is the smart dining room with a comfortable seating area where guests can sit and enjoy a quiet read away from the hubbub of the kitchen.

The bathroom is also on the ground floor and the entrance porch/boot room is the place to leave those walking boots and outdoor clothes.

To the rear of the cottage is a large utility/shed housing the washing machine and dryer.

To the outside of the property is a large, fully enclosed garden with lawn, picnic bench, dog proof fence, large double outdoor kennel and run.

The garden is an ideal place to sit and relax after a busy day exploring the local countryside.

This area is a true outdoor enthusiast’s paradise and close by there are fabulous forest tracks to be enjoyed either on foot or on cycles.

Lairg is just a short drive away, ideal for picking up essentials whilst the larger village of Bonar Bridge has better shopping opportunities to enjoy.

Just a short drive from the cottage are the stunning golden sands of both Dornoch and Embo beaches, a real magnet to tourists.

Whether you choose to head to the far north and explore Cape Wrath or stay closer to home, there are always places to visit and things to do in this unspoilt and scenic part of the Highlands.

Braevaal is a cosy cottage which will be appreciated by all, at any time of the year.
