    “We were fishing near Bettyhill for the week.”

    A lot of snow on the ground and ice on the river. The house was a pleasure to come back to after fishing in Arctic conditions. We could not fault anything about Rhianchaitel House . If we are back near Bettyhill again I would be very happy to rent this house.

The property

Rhianchaitel House is an impressive stone croft house, set on an elevated site and surrounded by a lovely natural garden.

A gated driveway leads up to the house and from here the views across the village and over to Farr Bay are breathtaking.

This property is ideal for a family or group of friends who want to embrace the stunning unspoilt scenery that this remote and beautiful part of Scotland has to offer.

The house is spaciously set out and benefits from three bedrooms and the impressive bathroom has a fabulous slipper freestanding bath, ideal for soaking in at the end of an energetic day.

The kitchen/diner is well-equipped and delicious home-cooked meals can be enjoyed together around the dining table.

The stylish and comfortable sitting room is ideal for an evening of relaxation whilst planning the next day’s events.

The area is extremely popular with walkers, cyclists, anglers, wildlife enthusiasts and for those who simply want to escape the day-to-day hustle and bustle in exchange for a totally relaxing break to de-stress!

Bettyhill has a good selection of local amenities and two splendid sandy beaches where children can play safely, and even in the height of the summer you may have the beaches all to yourself!

A quiet pathway leads directly to the beach just a very short walk away.

The roads in this area are still relatively quiet even in the summer months and a drive along the rugged and dramatic coastline visiting the various villages is a must.

Other places worth visiting include Durness and Cape Wrath and the RSPB Reserve at Forsinard, which offers daily excursions to enjoy some of the wildlife residents in the area.

Whatever you choose to do in this special place, Rhianchaitel House is a wonderful holiday home to be enjoyed all the year round.
