Achue Croft Cottage in Sutherland, a cottage in Highlands: Achue Croft Cottage exterior

Quiet, well appointed cottage, ideal base for North Highlands

The cottage is a great base for exploring the Northern Highlands : you are 1 hour from Inverness, 2 hours from John O'Groats and 1 hour from the rugged hills of the west coast. Close at hand, there are walks through forests, along the seashore and over the hills.

There are opportunities for salmon, trout and sea fishing, golf at Royal Dornoch or at the other 21 courses in the area (the nearest course to Achue is only 2 miles away). Alternatively, you can visit Dunrobin Castle, follow the Pictish Trail, go panning for gold at Kildonan, investigate iron age brochs, go mountain biking, trace the history of the Highland Clearances or watch salmon leaping at the Falls of Shin.

You could spot red deer on the hills or roe deer in the woods, look out for ospreys, red kites and hen harriers, see otters at Loch Migdale or dolphins in the Moray Firth. Or take a guided tour round the Glenmorangie Distillery and go to the Highland Games. Nearby Skibo Castle is where the rich and famous go for peace, golf and relaxation (and where Madonna got married) so you will be in good company.

Or you can just sit in the sun lounge, enjoy the view and relax in the peace and quiet.

This property offers 1 king size double bedroom with ensuite shower, 1 double, 1 twin, bathroom with corner bath, lounge and kitchen/diner. The bedroom with ensuite facilities is on the ground floor and so is suitable for those who don't want to use stairs.

Achue is sits by itself in open countryside where you need binoculars to see your neighbours and yet is only 2 miles form Bonar Bridge which has shops, pubs and restaurants. Nearby Tain and Dornoch have a good restaurants and a range of shops and facilities.
