Sutherland is an area of outstanding rugged beauty and ideal place to stay if you want to rent a remote Scottish holiday cottage. This northernmost part of Scotland has remained largely undiscovered and is totally unspoilt, but is definitely a must if peace and tranquillity and not much in the way of traffic is what you are looking for.

Sutherland offers empty, beautiful open landscapes and the most idyllic beaches - nearby Farr Bay and Bettyhill have dunes and smooth white sand. The heather-clad hills offer wonderful walking and abundant bird and wildlife. Fishing is a great attraction in Sutherland - near to the cottage, the River Naver has prolific salmon and Loch Duinte has trout and wild brown trout. Exploring Sutherland's wild and dramatic landscape offers a variety of walking - from munros to cliff-top walks with the waves crashing below. This is perhaps the most beautiful part of Scotland and if you want to totally escape from 21st century life then this lovely self-catering cottage in Sutherland is for you!
