The property

Castletown 1.2 miles.

Nestled on the outskirts of the coastal village of Castletown, in the Scottish Highlands, is this superb white stone cottage.

Bayview Cottage provides a wonderful base for those looking to explore this rural area of Scotland, with the bustling town of Thurso within driving distance.

This property all rests on the ground-floor, with assisted wheel chair access at the front door and down into the kitchen, and therefore would be suitable for those requiring wheelchair access.

Step into the spacious sitting room with a large sofa and footstool, so you can put your aching feet up after a long day sightseeing and spend the evening catching up with your favourite shows.

Walk through to the spacious kitchen/diner, with a large dining table giving you the chance for a family gathering over a lovingly prepared home-cooked meal, in the well equipped kitchens.

Retire to any one of the two bedrooms, consisting of a double and twin with plenty of modern furnishings to store your personal items and lovely views across the surrounding countryside.

The family wet room provides easy access for wheelchair users and has deluxe fixtures and fittings for your ultimate comfort.

Discover a wrap-around enclosed garden with plenty of furniture so you can sit out in the afternoon sun with a refreshing beverage and simply enjoy the country views whilst your pets enjoy the communal dog exercising paddock.

While you're in the area, travel towards the coastal town of Thurso and discover its delightful bay with a long stretch of sand where you can spend the afternoon relaxing in the hot weather, or taking the opportunity to get involved with a variety of watersports activities such as surfing, sailing and kayaking.

Due to the rural location, you will have easy access to a number of footpaths for some scenic walking and cycling opportunities, with a plethora of bird life to spot along the way, ideal for those keen photographers too.

Thurso provides a larger selection of traditional pubs and restaurants for some fine food and real Scottish ale, as well as a range of shops and supermarkets for all of your amenities.

Bayview Cottage is the ideal secluded property for those looking to explore this rural area.
