The lounge contains a log fire, well stocked bookcases (including plenty of board games and DVDs) and a TV/DVD player. The lounge has a feature wall with a huge map of North Scotland made up from OS maps.

Outside, there is an enclosed garden area and a small copse of native trees, with the immaculately maintained (though infrequently used) football/shinty pitch and enclosed children’s play area, a minute's walk away.

A footpath gives easy access from the house to the beach and village centre, both around a ten minute walk. For bird and wildlife lovers there is a viewing hut looking over the bay. The village centre consists of a well stocked shop (which includes an off licence and post office), hotel with bar and an outdoor/fishing shop which also has 24 hour petrol pumps. Trout fishing licences for the local lochs can be purchased here.

As you can probably see from the pictures, Cnoclochan is not (nor is it intended to be) a luxury self catering cottage, and this is reflected in the price. It is however a large, warm, clean and very comfortable home to relax in and to use as a base whilst exploring and enjoying this truly amazing part of Scotland.

We hope you have a memorable stay!

Location description from owner

The Caithness and Sutherland region

Scourie is situated in the North West Scotland Geo Park, described as “one of geology’s holy places”. Knochan Crag Visitor Centre explains the area’s geological significance. Ancient caves near Inchnadamph are worth a visit as well as Smoo cave near Durness.

The area is famous for its fishing; brown trout in the hill lochs (permits can be obtained locally), mackerel and pollack can be caught from seashore and boat. Boats can be launched from Scourie harbour and the bay is good for canoeing and windsurfing. The beach is safe for children to play on.

Exhilarating hill walks in the nearby mountains include Ben Stack, Quinag, Suilven, Arkle, Stac Pollaidh and up to the highest waterfall in Britain. There are magnificent white sandy beaches to explore up the West Coast, including Sandwood Bay and Oldshoremore, on the north around Durness and southwards near Stoer and Lochinver.

The area is also popular amongst bird watchers; Handa Island with its small ferry crossing offers a great day out and the chance to see amongst others, puffins, guillemots and skuas. Buzzards and eagles are seen amongst the hills and red deer, otters, pine martens and seals are amongst the local wildlife. Wild deer can graze close to the house.

Scourie

Cnoclochan is within 5 minutes walk of the village SPAR, which is well stocked and includes a post office and off licence. The Scourie Hotel next door offers bar and restaurant meals. Also in the village are the outdoor/fishing shop, 24/7 fuel pumps and a GP surgery.

The cottage is right beside the well kept village football pitch and a small play park with swings/climbing frame etc.

There are a choice of good local restaurants with the Shorehouse Restaurant at Tarbet just to the north and the Eddrachilles Hotel just south of Scourie. The Scourie Hotel is popular for bar meals and the Scourie campsite runs a restaurant during the summer. The Spice Route (details in the cottage) delivers authentic home cooked ethnic food to order, delivering to Scourie every Friday.
