Please find below a selection of self catering holiday cottages to rent in Durness, Scotland.
Escape-from-it-all and discover a deliciously slower pace of life with a stay in a Durness holiday cottage, situated in mainland Britain's most north-westerly village.
As you approach Durness on the single track road, you can see why visitors come from far and wide - even John Lennon holidayed here as a boy! This far-flung speck on the Scottish map sits amid wild, sweeping countryside bordered by limestone cliffs and shimmering beaches. The sleepy community is basically a string of crofts lining the coast and a village square. There's a grocer's and small supermarket with Post Office, petrol station, pub, restaurant and Visitors' Centre, plus the weekly services of a mobile bank and Sunday newsagent.
Historians will relish the rich evidence of ancient stone circles and early settlements, but there's no doubt that Nature's finest handiwork will be the star attraction. The must-see beauty spot of Cape Wrath is just ten miles along the coast, while the breathtaking sandy beaches in and around Durness could have been lifted from the page of a Caribbean brochure. Head inland for mountains, moorland, rivers and lochs, offering all kinds of opportunities, from superb fishing to wonderful walks. Add amazing sunsets and star-studded skies - what more could you want? Round of golf? The Durness Golf Course welcomes visitors and boasts spectacular views of the mountains and sea, along with an unforgettable last hole...just wait and see.
So, if you want to flee the pressures of everyday life and find a heavenly hideaway in the Northwest Highlands, a Durness cottage holiday is the answer.
