    Skipaflotta was just stunning. The drive there from the NW England was long and in wintry conditions interesting, but definitely worth all the effort, taking us about 9 hours in all. We arrived in day light and were over the moon with the property , it's look and feel were everything that we had hoped for.

    Skipaflotta was just stunning. The drive there from the NW England was long and in wintry conditions interesting, but definitely worth all the effort, taking us about 9 hours in all. We arrived in day light and were over the moon with the property , it's look and feel were everything that we had hoped for. Our two children were delighted with the big open plan living area and their smart and cosy bedroom. The views from from the house were amazing and we had to take turns at meals to sit with our backs to the view as everyone wanted a view seat. The house was lovely and modern which meant always a good temperature and a great base to come back to each day. Everything about the house seemed well thought out, with a great entrance porch / utility area to get rid of outdoor clothing etc and space to store our rather copious amounts of stuff! The living are was light and spacious with some great sofas ( especially a round one which rotates which was definitely a hit) . Even the kitchen, which can be a bit of an afterthought in some properties, was well designed and had loads of things which we hadn't expected and made cooking easy. Elisabeth and Peter were charming and thoughtful with regular top up supplies of wood and kindling when needed ( the fire was a luxury rather than a necessity, and certainly added that cosy factor).We had some great days out including walking to sandwood bay which was stunning , remote and wild , a couple of days kayaking and walking around loch Laxford where we saw sea otters , a golden eagle and white tailed sea eagle and lots of seals not to mention all of the other bird life . The bay's nearby are just stunning and an easy if somewhat windy walk from the house or a short drive ( oldshoremore ) . We also made use of The Spice Route takeaway service on one night which was brilliant, and just a short drive to collect ( order a day or so before) . The local Spar in Kinlochbervie was well stocked and although we brought most things would have easily catered for anything we needed. The only down side would have been the broadband connection which was slow ( but remember where this house is and you will see why) but serviceable and was more than combatted by a box of DVDs which we had brought with us and a DVDs player which Peter sorted out for us( a big thank you) . Phone reception as you would expect was poor generally, but great if you wanted to throw you phone in the drawer for the week which we did ! Finally a really big thank you to our hosts for an amazing holiday in a stunning place with such a wonderful property. We will be back

The property

Kinlochbervie 4 miles.

An architecturally designed house providing something a little bit special!

One of two similar properties, the owners live next door, this spacious, bright and contemporary house will ensure a wonderful holiday in the remote north of Scotland.

This house would be ideal for a family group or group of friends who want to get away from it all to this unspoilt and stunningly beautiful part of Scotland.

The ground floor has a contemporary open plan living area with a well-equipped kitchen, a dining area from which the views can be really appreciated and a lovely sitting area set around a cosy woodburning stove.

There is a utility/boot room and ground floor shower room.

On the upper floor there are two bright bedrooms and a family bathroom.

On the pleasant evenings visitors will most certainly appreciate sitting on their private balcony and soaking up the views with a nice glass of wine or two!

It may be hard to leave such a lovely house but close by is the famous Sandwood Bay Beach reputedly the most beautiful beach in Britain.

The wild and spectacular Sandwood Bay is backed by huge sand dunes and a loch and visitors can enjoy a lovely walk, paddle in the clear blue water or even a picnic!

If you want to tour the area then why not head up to Durness the most north westerly point in mainland Scotland.

Whilst here you must visit the spectacular Smoo Cave, a combined sea and freshwater cave complex which you can explore by boat or by the path from the car park.

There is so much to see and do in this remote and beautiful area of Scotland and this lovely holiday home ensures an unbeatable holiday.

About the location

KINLOCHBERVIE

Durness 18 miles; Lairg 46 miles; Thurso 89 miles; Inverness 94 miles.

Situated in the far north west of Scotland, Kinlochbervie is the most northerly of all the fishing ports and boasts a large fish handling depot from where catches are dispatched throughout Europe. Because of this the roads in the surrounding area are first class! The area has a stunning rocky coastline which attracts many visitors throughout the year. The village itself has a well-stocked shop, a post office and hotels and restaurant that are open all year round. From here it is easy to access both Oldshoremore Beach and the more famous Sandwood Bay Beach which some claim is the most beautiful beach in Britain!
