Lakeside, seaside, countryside, hillside…wherever you can picture your perfect cottage, you’ll find it with Welcome Cottages!


Set in a rural location, this property has sea views and has a number of attractions closeby.

This detached, former fisherman/crofter’s cottage has been tastefully restored to provide very comfortable holiday accommodation. The property overlooks the Kyles of Tongue, a dramatic expanse of pristine golden sand, and the many skerries that create this fabulous coastline. The ever-changing seascape and light make this area a truly get-away-from-it-all holiday experience. The area has much to offer, with Ben Hope and Ben Loyal for the serious climber and low level coastal walks. Smoo Cave, Castle of Mey, the former home of the late Queen Mother, Cape Wrath and a day trip from John O’Groats to the Orkney Isles are within a short drive. Loch and sea fishing are available, and a wide range of seabirds, such as puffins, waders and hen harriers can be easily spotted. Shop 500 yards, pub and restaurant 50 yards.

    Perfect, almost! A lovely cottage and in a perfect setting. Very nicely designed and we certainly appreciated the literature that was available. Very comfortable. Cosy rooms and big well equipped kitchen

    A warm, well-maintained, comfortable cottage in a quiet, fairly remote location, Northern Lights was a pleasant place to stay. The kitchen was equipped to a high standard with all modern facilities, the lounge was cosy and benefitted from an open fire, as well as central heating, which came on from an oil-fired boiler situated in the downstairs bathroom. Our only quibble would be that the boiler was quite noisy when it came on. The upstairs bedroom was comfortable, and had plenty of storage space. In the chest in the lounge there were lots of useful information about local attractions and local services.

    What a fantastic little cottage in the most stunning location. We hire lots of holiday cottages and this was the best so far. Great to have only plenty of cupboard space instead of been crammed full of pots and pans and crockery you would never use. Also the cleanest cottage. The views out of the windows were to die for. You have to pay for the electricity you use but we didn't feel the cost was that much for what we used. We did not want to leave could have stayed there for ever.
