Perched on a hillside overlooking the Moray Firth, it enjoys superb uninterrupted views across the Sutherland hills to the sea. Originally Kate’s Croft comprised a small, two-roomed croft house and barn. The cottage has been renovated by the current owner and now provides delightful accommodation that oozes rustic charm in a quiet and peaceful setting. It is situated on a small no-through lane that leads directly onto the open hillside. Just 1½ miles from the A9 and the renowned North Coast 500 route, it is easily accessible too. Wildlife is abundant in the immediate area and deer, golden eagles, otters, dolphins and seals are seen locally. The large kitchen/dining room in the converted barn area is simply stunning. With a farmhouse kitchen table, wood burner and bright, contemporary kitchen units with large range cooker, it makes a wonderful hub for the whole family to gather around. It is also extremely well-equipped. There are two separate living rooms, one with a large wood-burner, making this an ideal cottage for a two-family holiday or larger groups. The main bedroom is accessed via its own separate staircase. Located in the old hay loft and built into the hillside, the owner has cleverly added French doors which open onto a decking area with patio table and chairs where you can enjoy the morning sun, or if you are lucky, an amazing view of the Northern Lights. At the other end of the cottage a second staircase leads up to another double bedroom, a twin room and a single room. All enjoy the same wonderful sea views. There is a small enclosed garden with a picnic bench. From here, steps lead up to a small decked area behind the house which can also be accessed from the master bedroom.

Situated in the pretty hamlet of Gartymore, it is just over a mile to the attractive coastal fishing village of Helmsdale. Here there is a thriving small harbour and a good selection of small local shops and restaurants as well as a fascinating, award-winning museum detailing the area’s rich and varied past. There is a 9-hole golf course in the village and other championship golf courses at nearby Brora and Dornoch. The local shoreline is renowned for its fossils, which are regularly found along this particular stretch of coast. This region is also known for its unspoilt beaches, wild and rugged coastline, and traditional villages. Travel north to visit the Castle of Mey, John O’ Groats and the Orkney Isles. Golf, fishing, cycling, hill-walking, surfing, kayaking and pony trekking are all local pastimes. Beach 1 mile. Shop, pub and restaurant 1¾ mile.

Guest Comments

"So peaceful, wonderful views. Cottage well equipped. Will definitely be booking again."

Rebecca, August 2021

"This is an ideally situated cottage to explore the far north east of Scotland.The cottage itself had excellent and comfortable downstairs space, a fabulous kitchen and everything we needed for a weeks holiday.The bedrooms upstairs were comfortable and roomy, but be aware of the sloping ceilings if you are tall.We wouldn't hesitate to book Kate's Croft again, we had a fab time, as did our two dogs with great walks on your doorstep.Top holiday with loads to see."

"Lovely croft really good views"

Lesley, October 2020

"Fantastic cottage, only things letting it down... mattress on master suite bed was not the best, definately needs and deserves something better. Secondly, a bench or seats on the balcony deck would make this space perfect for relaxing in the sunshine, or stargazing. These are only niggles though as we found the cottage to be fantastic. We couldn't and wouldn't use a lot of nearby facilities due to Covid restrictions but even on a rainy day our teen found the WiFi excellent and wasn't stuck for things to do.All I can say is I definitely want to be back at the cottage and I'm sure we definitely will be."
