  • "The house has everything you would want, a home from home."

    Very clean and tidy, lots of local information available. It was larger than we expected and a big bonus although not listed to have a dish washer. A nice touch was to find essentials to make a drink and something to eat on arrival. The housekeeper who lives locally popped along to make sure we had everything we needed and to sorted out the tv

  • "Excellent property to explore the north of Scotland."

    Clean and comfortable with plenty of space. Could do with an info pack, had to Google how to use cooker and ask neighbours about bin collection. Also if arriving late there’s not even a pint of milk to make a cup of tea. Minor things I know but important.

  • "We had a wonderful week in Lairg, the cottage was fantastic, and located in the centre (crossroads of the north) of the Northern Highlands which made it easy for us to travel around most of the NorthCoast 500 route."

    Lairg itself is a lovely wee village with such friendly residents. The cottage had plenty of space which allowed us as a family never to feel on top of each other, the additional lounge area on the first floor allowed extra space- not that we needed it! The cottage was spotless on arrival and bed linen and towels were immaculate. The huge kitchen and dining table meant we sat as a family in the evenings, all the utensils you could need to cook meals. I can’t wait to return to Lairg - if only I could afford to buy this cottage.

About the location


Inverness 50 miles.

Located 50 miles north of Inverness, Lairg is centrally placed for touring the remote and beautiful Northern Highlands. The area has much to offer the visitor, from fine golf courses to outstanding fishing, some of the finest hill walking and mountaineering country in the land and the grand castle at Dunrobin, the home of the Earls of Sutherland. The castle, overlooking the sea, boasts a magnificent formal garden inspired by the grandeur of Versailles in France. Golfers can enjoy a round at local courses in Bonar Bridge, Golspie and Ullapool as well as at the world famous Royal Dornoch Golf Club. Lairg provides a convenient base for trips to the West, North and East coasts with breath-taking scenery in every direction. Walkers are within range of the most northerly Munro in Ben Hope as well as the iconic mountains Suilven, Arkle and Foinavon. Whisky enthusiasts can enjoy visits to nearby distilleries such as Balblair, Clynelish and Glenmorangie. Keen fisherman are situated at the southern end of the lovely Loch Shin and have a wide choice of scenic trout lochs in the local area. In the immediate area are several other outdoor adventure activities including falconry, bird watching and photography, woodcarving, geology, kayaking, or even dry stone walling. For the true Highland experience you won’t find much better.
