The property

Lying at the heart of the idyllic village of Lairg, Burnside is a charming and traditional cottage boasting incredible views of the Northern Highlands.

Surrounded by breath-taking landscapes, this pet-friendly dwelling makes a fabulous base from which a family or group of six can discover the true delights of Scotland.

Be greeted by a well-designed utility room as you step inside this homely abode, perfect for washing all your mud-splattered clothes following a fun-filled day exploring the area.

Take a seat at the spacious oak dining table that rests within the pretty country-kitchen, mapping out plans for the duration of your stay whilst the chef of the group prepares a hearty home-cooked dinner with the help of the striking range cooker.

Tuck into your fantastic feast in the warmth of the dining room, before retiring to the inviting sitting room and unwinding with a movie on the impressive flat-screen TV whilst admiring the eye-catching feature fireplace.

A lovely king-size bedroom can be found on the ground floor and is served by a handy shower room, ideal for guests with limited mobility.

On the first floor, a beautifully appointed twin bedroom can be transformed into a king-size upon request and benefits from its very own en-suite shower.

Across the way, two single bedrooms offer a wonderful place to retreat with a book for a moment of peace and quiet.

Guests can also escape the excitement with an indulging soak in the spacious tub that sits within the airy first floor bathroom.

On warm summer days be sure to delight in an afternoon in the garden, soaking up the sunshine as you lounge on the decking whilst the dogs run freely on the lawn.

Explore the very best that Scotland has to offer with an exhilarating hike along the The Ord Archaeology Trail or through the nearby Ferry Wood.

Embrace the great outdoors at the Falls of Shin Forest or travel over to Golspie for a stroll along the pale-yellow sands.

Take a tour of the grand Dunrobin Castle & Gardens, before venturing up to Cairn Liath and stopping for a spot of lunch in the village of Brora.

Avid golfers will relish in a quick round at Bonar Bridge Ardgay Golf Club, whilst historians will enjoy a day trip to Inverness, home to an imposing Castle and Cathedral, all within a pleasant drive.

Spot elegant birds at Loch Shin Bird Watching Hide, or try out a new and exciting watersport at Go Wild Highlands.

Grab dinner at the iconic local restaurant, The Pier, or pick up some groceries from the well-stocked supermarket ahead of a quiet evening indoors.

For an action-packed adventure with friends and family, be sure to book a stay at Burnside.

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.
