Croft cottage situated in a stunning location with panoramic views across the Kyle of Tongue

Melness Cottage is a traditional croft cottage situated in a stunning location with panoramic views across the Kyle of Tongue. This detached two storey cottage is situated in the quiet hamlet of Skinnet in North West Sutherland. Just a short walk from the sea and surrounded by majestic mountain ranges, awe inspiring beaches and pretty harbour villages, the cottage provides an ideal base from which to explore this wonderful and totally unspoilt region. The cottage has been upgraded and refurbished whilst retaining its original charm. There is a cosy lounge, a separate dining room and a small but well equipped kitchen. On the first floor are two good sized bedrooms and a bright, modern family bathroom. The views across the bay with the mountains beyond are simply stunning. There is a large garden, mainly laid to lawn, bounded by an original low stone wall. Whilst this far North West coastline seems wild and remote, there are a good selection of amenities and facilities in the immediate area. There is also a local bar and restaurant just 1/2 mile from the cottage. Perched on a promontory overlooking the magnificent Kyle of Tongue, the nearby village of Tongue enjoys spectacular views across the sea, with the mountains of Ben Hope and Ben Loyal in the distance. The village has a good selection of local amenities including a general store, two hotels with restaurants, post office, petrol station, craft shops and village church. There is a slipway and harbour for small boats within a mile of the property.

    Beautiful location overlooking the water. Comfy, warm cottage which is very well equipped. Great central location for visiting either east or west. Food at the Craggin hotel was fantastic.

    Given that we were seeking isolation, this suited fine. The cottage was warm and comfortable. Access to the local shops in Tongue and Talmine was acceptable albeit that the variety of products and produce was understandably limited. The views were stunning. The weather was kind to us apart from an almost constant wind. Beaches were great and we walked alot using the local guidebook for walks in the area. The next door neighbours were delightful and a meal at the Craggan Inn was excellent. If anything was lacking it was a freezer facility. Also, an this is not restricted to this cottage, is a lack of storage boxes in the kitchen (e.g. biscuits, cheese etc) Don't be misled by the above. We had a lovely holiday.
