    “The old kirk was brilliant and more than we had expected.”

    I have worked in holiday cottages for the last ten years and this was as good as I have ever stayed in. We loved the extras provided such as the odd blanket, the roasting tins, the wok, the slow cooker used twice and wine glasses that met our high expectations with red wine. I needed a bigger colinder/strainer but that's been difficult to find in Sutherland as a sieve seems to be OK but I needed a big one for rice, pasta and washing the spuds.

    I have worked in holiday cottages for the last ten years and this was as good as I have ever stayed in. We loved the extras provided such as the odd blanket, the roasting tins, the wok, the slow cooker used twice and wine glasses that met our high expectations with red wine. I needed a bigger colinder/strainer but that's been difficult to find in Sutherland as a sieve seems to be OK but I needed a big one for rice, pasta and washing the spuds. No worries we were very happy with our stay at the Old Kirk and ideal for 3 manic fisherman.

The cottage

Melvich 4 miles.

Originally a church, this stunning holiday home is situated in unspoilt countryside, four miles from Melvich, in the remote and beautiful north of Scotland.

The church dates from 1837 and has been impressively transformed into a unique, spacious holiday property, ideal for any group who will appreciate its comfort and style, and embrace the opportunity to explore this dramatic region.

This Melvich cottage has two large bedrooms both with en-suite facilities, as well as a luxurious family bathroom where guests will enjoy a peaceful soak at the end of a busy day.

A mezzanine-style balcony, complete with chaise longue, makes a perfect, private reading area, whilst the open plan living area in this Highland holiday cottage, with its high ceilings and oak flooring, exudes style and quality.

Doors from the living area in this cottage near Melvich open out to a private, rear patio garden where the only sound to be heard is that of birdsong.

The little communities of Melvich and Portskerra are just a short drive away, whilst a journey further along this far north coastline will take you to the larger village of Durness, which is surrounded by wonderful mountain scenery and spectacular coastal views, as well as having fabulous sandy beaches and bays.

For lovers of birdlife, a trip to the RSPB reserve in nearby Forsinard is a must, and for fisherman, Sutherland is a location hard to beat.

This Melvich cottage is a very special place, offering a holiday to remember in a beautiful area of Scotland.

About the location

MELVICH

Thurso 17 miles.

The village of Melvich is located on the north coast of Scotland near the mouth of the River Halladale and is set in the rolling and open space of Sutherland known as 'Mackay Country'. At the head of the bay is Melvich Beach, a beautiful and unspoilt stretch of golden sand and a popular venue for surfing. Melvich has a village shop and Post Office as well as a village inn with a restaurant. Melvich attracts many visitors, especially during the summer months, as it is an ideal base for touring the north coast of Scotland. Orkney is just a short ferry ride away, and fishing is available on many of the local lochs.
