  • “What a beautiful cottage and location.”

    Had everything we needed between me and my little boy. Absolutely loved it. Away from all the hustle and bustle of life. Went on some beautiful drives… Outstanding beaches near by and The cottage was fantastic.

The property

Resting a stone’s throw away from the shores of the Scottish Highlands in the small township of Sheigra near Kinlochbervie is this characterful barn conversion, Deer House.

This semi-detached holiday accommodation is a unique find for those seeking a tranquil oasis in which to switch off from the hustle and hustle of everyday life and to explore the coastline of this corner of Scotland with Sandwood Bay Beach nearby, which some claim to be the most beautiful beach in Britain.

Soak up your lovely surroundings and admire the soundtrack of the nearby running brook, before entering into the open-plan living room, offering a social hub for you all to gather to create some wonderful memories.

Light up the woodburning stove and sink into the plush seating arrangement, before flicking through the channels of the TV to find your evening’s entertainment.

Joining the space is the well-equipped kitchen, where a range of quality appliances arranged in a contemporary assortment is certain to encourage a spot of home-cooking, as well as a dishwasher and a wash/dryer to serve as a helping hand.

Concluding the interior of the all ground-floor dwelling are the two elegantly-appointed king-size bedrooms, served by a sleek family shower room.

Balmy mornings can be spend savouring your morning cup of tea on the patio and look forward to returning in the evening to enjoy a spot of alfresco dining, whilst admiring the countryside views.

For local amenities, travel south to the scattered harbour village Kinlochbervie, home to a shop, a post office and hotels with restaurants that are open all year round.

A short drive will take you to the Oldshoremore Beach, or keen walkers can enjoy a four mile walks to a scenic wild beach of Sandwood Bay backed by huge sand dunes and a loch, which some consider to be most beautiful beach in Britain.

About the location


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!
