Kips Cottage is a former croft situated in a stunning location facing the north coast of Sutherland and surrounded by hillside. It is a charming and homely cottage and offers total peace and quiet while being part of the hamlet that is Kirtomy. It has amazing views over the sea and fantastic views of the changing coastal scenery.

Sutherland offers beautifully wild landscape combining amazing white sandy beaches with imposing mountains, rugged hills and rushing streams in between moorland and coast. Kips Cottage is uniquely placed to explore the north coast of Scotland being centrally situated with both east and west coasts within striking distance.

The area is an outdoor paradise with mountains to climb, fish to catch, beaches to roam, waves to ride and wildlife to spot. There are several rivers within a short drive � Naver, Borgie, Strathy and Halladale - all which offer good salmon fishing and also there is a myriad of lochs, streams and estuaries to explore.
