Kips Cottage is a rustic former bothy, with very few mod cons, other than amazing views and copious hot water. If you love going back in time and feeling like you are living on the edge of the world, it will be perfect for you. If you are looking for something even vaguely modern, Kips Cottage may not suit.
The cottage is situated in a stunning location just off the North Coast 500 in Sutherland. The cottage looks over the North Atlantic and is surrounded by hillside with fantastic views of the changing coastal scenery.
There is a spacious living area with a sofa and 2 armchairs, and a pine dining table and a wood-burning stove at one end. A charming double bedroom is accessed from the other end of the living space. Also on the ground floor is a basic kitchen, slightly like being on a boat, with a kitchen table and French doors out onto the decked area outside. The kitchen has an electric oven and a butler’s sink. Situated off the kitchen is a charmingly ramshackle bathroom with bath and basin and lavatory.
Up some steep stairs by the kitchen is a long attic area with twin beds at one end. The attic has limited headroom and is perfect for children.
There is plenty of parking and a garden to explore.
Let Saturday to Saturday, but other changeover days considered in low season.
