Orchid Cottage - sea and mountain views!

Family-friendly holiday home in Lairg
The Cathair Dhubh Estate is tucked into the rugged Sutherland coastline on the NC500 between the villages of Lochinver and Clachtoll.

Nestling in the heart of the spectacular Assynt countryside, it is a haven for wildlife lovers, hikers, fishermen, photographers and outdoor enthusiasts, not to mention those families looking for white, sandy beaches and crystal blue waters.

The space

At Cathair Dhubh Estate the views are simply amazing! Bring your binoculars and you could be watching whales, basking sharks, porpoises and dolphins all from your window!

The Estate houses five lovely, self-catering cottages which are listed on HomeAway. Orchid cottage is a cosy semi-detached property looking south over beautiful Achmelvich Bay and to the distant mountains beyond. The cottage has 2 bedrooms; a double and a twin. It has a good sized family bathroom. There is a fully-fitted kitchen, incorporating an oven, hob and microwave, together with a fridge/freezer, dishwasher, washing machine and tumble dryer. The open plan lounge and dining area provide a comfy place to relax and is equipped with satellite TV and DVD player and CD radio. We do have Wifi, but in the spirit of getting away from it all, it is quite basic and at times, elusive!
There are patios leading to outside seating where you can experience the breathtaking views.

Guest access

Guests have access to the entirety of Orchid Cottage.

Interaction with guests

I will normally be available at the beginning and end of our guests' stay. However, during the week, I will often be in Kent. I am always contactable by phone and we have an absolutely brilliant maintenance team who are on hand to iron out any difficulties in my absence.

Other things to note

The Cathair Dhubh Estate is located in rugged croft land. There are rocky outcrops, steep slopes and the ground is frequently uneven. Guests are responsible for their own safety while on site - both indoors and outside.
The quality of our Wifi service is limited by local infrastructure and affected by weather conditions. It can be intermittent and very slow. We therefore do not recommend that you rely on it.
Guest accommodation at this holiday home offers a hairdryer and an iron/ironing board. Kitchens offer fridges, hobs, microwaves and kitchenware and utensils.
Bookings for this property are managed through Vrbo, part of our Expedia Group family.

5/5 Excellent

September 18-25th 2021
Property was in a fantastic location with easy access to coastal walks and beaches nearby. Rooms were very clean and comfortable, kitchen well-equipped. Ideal as a base from which to explore the area. Beautifully quiet and peaceful. Lochinver 15 minutes drive away for the basics and fuel.

5/5 Excellent
