Beautiful location, large property that needs upda
The views from the property are wonderful and the area very peaceful. The house itself is large and could easily sleep 8 people, it was let down somewhat by a slightly worn appearance. The bed mattresses, quilts and pillows could do with replacing and the fitted kitchen needs updating.
We did however have a good week away and found much to do in the area, one highlight being a visit to Smoo cave near Durness.
