5/5 Excellent

Comfortable house with spectacular of hills and beaches on the north coast of Scotland
We spent a very enjoyable week in this property that is centrally placed along Scotland’s north coast. We explored the quiet beaches near to the property and visited the small villages and towns along the coast. This is a remote area but this is part of it’s charm, you can get away from it all and still enjoy the comforts of home in this warm and comfortable retreat.

5/5 Excellent

Wonderful place with stunning views
We had a wonderful stay with friends at the family home. It had everything we needed and was perfect for exploring the East coast. A short walk to Farr Beach and a short drive to Torrisdale Beach, both are stunning! The owner Ali was really helpful and ensured our stay was hassle free, would recommend staying here if you are after a place that is quiet, with stunning views, homely and perfectly located to explore.

5/5 Excellent

wonderful escape in a beautiful location
what a wonderful week we've just had up in Bettyhill. The house was wonderful, clean, comfortable, cosy, extremely well equipped and with amazing views from all of the windows. Bettyhill is a wonderful spot with very easy access to breathtaking beaches and all that the North coast has to offer. Don't miss Farr and Strathy beaches. Beautiful.

5/5 Excellent
