    Mr Mackenzie

    “We give Glaven a top recommendation.”

    ...

    Glaven is a lovely, spacious house, set back from the road, with stunning views to the south across the Dornoch Firth. At the house, there were endless opportunities to relax and be entertained; dawn light on the water, ospreys hovering for their prey and a multitude of other birds, through to spectacular sunsets over the Kyle of Sutherland. The accommodation and facilities were as described (and better) although I do think that Wi-Fi is essential nowadays, especially when mobile coverage is so patchy in the area. The village can meet all of your basic needs with a special mention for Crannag Bistro, truly exceptional food and Ardgay Game for venison and more. Lots to do in the area as well; outdoors, golf, history and heritage are all to the fore. Handy for the North Coast 500 as well!

The property

This detached cottage takes an elevated position on the edge of Bonar Bridge, with views overlooking the Dornoch Firth and Ardgay beyond.

Perfect for families, friends, or a group of travellers, bring everyone along to experience all that this location has to offer.

Upon entering you will arrive at a cloakroom, as well as a snug room, perfect for cosying up and reading a book in the peace and quiet.

The utility area lies close by and the garage is your own little escape for some family time playing pool, or a game of table football.

Relax in the sitting room which is home to a log burner and comfortable sofas, where you can chill out in the warmth and admire the calming views.

For more of this, you can prepare those home-cooked meals in the well-equipped kitchen/diner, before wandering out through the French doors to the patio area.

A family bathroom also lies on the ground floor and has been completed to a high standard with a shower over the bath.

Choose from three bedrooms for a good nights sleep, including a king-size with en-suite, also boasting a walk-in wardrobe and beautiful views to the front of the cottage.

A double and twin room are equally as stylish, should you want a change of scenery.

Outside, mature shrubs, with wildflower and orchard slope down to the main road and you can enjoy some 'me time' on the patio area.

Bonar Bridge is ideally placed to explore this region of Scotland and the Royal Burgh of Dornoch with its beaches and famous golf course is close at hand.

The Falls Of Shin visitor centre with its waterfall, viewing platform, salmon leap, forest walks and restaurant is only a short drive away.

About the location

BONAR BRIDGE

Dornoch 13 miles; Inverness 37 miles.

Bonar Bridge sits on an ancient fording point across the estuary that leads into the Dornoch Firth and dates from pre-historic times. Originally a ferry crossing and a fording point for cattle drovers, the first bridge was engineered by Thomas Telford and completed in 1812. Nearby historic Croick Church witnessed the Highland Clearances in the mid nineteenth century and messages scratched onto the windows of the church at the time are still visible today. Bonar Bridge is ideally placed to explore this region of Scotland. The Royal Burgh of Dornoch with its beaches and famous golf course is close at hand. The Falls Of Shin visitor centre with its waterfall, viewing platform, salmon leap, forest walks and restaurant is a half an hour’s drive. Salmon fishing and deer stalking are available locally and there is a spectacular range of flora and fauna to enjoy including buzzards, osprey, grey seals and golden eagles nearby.
