                                            Spectacular Cottage in Pastoral Setting

                                            Jim S.Illinois

                                            Our stay at Archway Cottage was very comfortable, relaxing and enriching. Roomy, modernized cottage with spectacular views of the Kyle of Sutherland. Immediate garden full of flowers with woods nearby for hiking. Easy access by road to Lairg, Bonar Bridge and beyond. Very friendly and accommodating landlord/lady. We even enjoyed our neighbors in the adjacent cottage. The two cottages are smartly arranged for either interaction or solitude. And the price is right. We couldn't be happier with our stay.

                                            Fabulous stay

                                            Jim S.Illinois

                                            Archway cottage is an absolutely charming stone cottage in an idyllic setting with stunning views and gorgeous flower gardens. Robert and Day gave us a warm welcome and were helpful in every way. If you're looking for a peaceful place to relax in an area with scenic walks that's convenient to the coast, then look no farther. You have found the perfect place.

                                            We had a wonderful stay in Howden family's archway cottage:

                                            Amaia G.

                                            We felt like home in the charming archway cottage, Robert & Davina are lovely, and there are lots of things to visit in the area, we could visit the west and the east cost. Thanks for everything.
