Cnoc Ard is a traditional property located in the coastal village of Scourie in North West Sutherland. The village itself offers a small range of facilities including a couple of small shops, a petrol station and a local hotel. The property is situated in a quiet location and would make an ideal base for exploring this part of Scotland including Handa Island, a reserve run by the Scottish Wildlife Trust.
The property has been tastefully furnished and equipped to a high standard. The living room and kitchen are open plan. The living room has modern leather sofas and a flat screen TV with DVD and also benefits from a wood burner, the exposed stonework being a particular striking feature. The kitchen has all the usual appliances and a good range of crockery and equipment.
Further facilities on the ground level include another sitting room with a sofa-bed, which can be utilized as an additional bedroom if required. This room has a dining table and seating for six and another flat screen TV with DVD. The main bathroom is also located on this level and has a bath, ideal for relaxing in after a day walking in the surrounding hills.
Upstairs guests will find two bedrooms both of which enjoy views to the front of the property. The bedrooms are identical in size and both have a double and a single bed. A shower room completes the facilities on this level. The property has a small enclosed garden to the front of the property and the owner has provided seating and a barbecue.
The property does have two bedroom each with a double and single bed, however there is a sofa-bed available in the sitting room that can be used if required, please request at the time of booking.
Two well behaved pets are allowed at the property free of charge, however guests should be aware that due to the house being situated in a crofting community, that there is the possibility that sheep will be in the vicinity and in the surrounding fields.
A Good Housekeeping Deposit of £75.00 is required at this property.
Very well equipped, and cosy cottage. Even though the wind roared we were warm and comfortable inside! Books, DVDs and jigsaws available, as well as Wifi and good mobile reception which we hadn't bargained for, being in a remote part of Scotland. Excellent fish and chip van operates twice a week and fish van calls once a week so we were able to enjoy really fresh fish and shellfish.
Had a great week at Cnoc Ard Everything you need for a comfy and cosy stay in this wonderful park of the UK. All the appliances/TV etc. are all modern and easy to use. Kitchen all fully kitted out. Great shower and hot water on demand(unlike many other cottages) but still keeps the traditional feel of a 'croft' dwelling. Easy transaction and instructions made booking and arrival/departure a breeze. Some amazing sights, Sandwood bay, Old man of Stoer. Easy walk to the campsite bar and hotel if you want to eat and drink out. To get away from it all in comfort and character I give Cnoc Ard 5*
We had a great week at Cnoc Ard. The location was perfect with easy access to the beautiful beaches and walks of Sutherland. The cottage was cosy and comfortable with lovely views and a log burning stove for chillier nights. Would highly recommend.
Comfortable cottage in great location. Weather was good too so all made for excellent holiday break.
Very good accommodation in a superb area; remote and quiet, yet within walking distance of Hotel/bar and also a Spar shop for the papers! The cottage is very well equipped with all amenities and everything is of good quality (I imagine because the owners stay there themselves too occasionally). Beds are quite comfy and no noise in the bedrooms/upstairs even when wind & rain is battering from the Atlantic one night! Would stay again there again, as the surrounding area is beautiful and fantastic beaches nearby.
