About the location


Lairg 56 miles; Thurso 75 miles.

The most North Westerly village in mainland Scotland, the ancient village of Durness, unspoilt by modern convention, offers a truly peaceful location amidst awe inspiring landscape. The village is steeped in history and boasts evidence of an 8th Century Christian settlement, cave dwellings and Viking invasions. The surrounding coastline is fringed with spectacular beaches of silver sand, soaring cliffs and deep caves. It is a splendid location from which to explore the solitude of the Highlands whilst watching the varied wildlife, or enjoying a spot of golf on Britain's most northerly golf course. Vist Smoo Cave, a large sea cave with a tiny river running through, and the large colony of puffins at nearby Faraid Head, offering a superb opportunity for wildlife photography. The local Craft Village, situated on a rather picturesque old RAF radar base, affords visitors the opportunity to purchase local giftware and art, produced by this sustainable, hospitable community. A vast area of outstanding natural beauty, Durness makes an ideal base for touring the rest of the Highlands.

Good view from the conservatory in any weather. Breathtaking scenery all around this remote area, from the vast pristine beaches to clear, sharp blues of the sky. The area is full of Iron Age and Neolithic ruins which are easily accessible; with brochs, chambered cairns and a wheelhouse close by. We saw a Golden Eagle above Loch More, an otter at Skerray Bay and a weasel in his white coat in the cottage garden. At night we looked at Jupiter and his moons, the Orion nebula ,the Pleiades and many other stars.

Very quiet, safe area for children. The Smoo hotel is only 500 yards away for good food and drink. Sixth week stayed there in last two years. Love it.

Mr Warren, Nottingham, November 2012

The location of the property was ideal, quite isolated but within a few minutes drive to shops etc.

Mr McLean, Mindrum, November 2012
