Roseville is located in the coastal village of Scourie in North West Sutherland. The property sits in the heart of the village with amenities close by. The property is beautifully presented and is equipped and furnished to a high specification. The location would make an ideal base for exploring this part of Scotland which is on the North Coast 500 route.
The accommodation is located over two levels. At the rear of the property, there is a large spacious kitchen/dining area with direct access to the garden. The kitchen is equipped with all the usual appliances including a large American-style fridge/freezer, and the dining area is an ideal place to relax after a day of exploring and to catch up on the day’s events. At the front of the property, there is a sitting room with comfortable sofas, a feature fireplace and a Smart TV. Additional facilities on this level include a beautiful shower room and a bedroom with a double bed.
Upstairs there are three bedrooms, a king, a double and a twin. The spacious master has a king-size bed and a lovely en-suite with a shower. The double and twin bedrooms are located to the front of the property and have en-suite shower rooms. All the bedrooms are tastefully furnished and have hair dryers and charging facilities for phones and iPods. Quality bed linen is used throughout and towels are supplied.
At the rear of the property, there is off-road parking and a large grassed garden which is enclosed.
The village of Scourie is nestled alongside a sandy bay in the far north Highlands. This is the perfect place to come to leave it all behind. Only a 10-minute stroll away from the property is Scourie Beach, with its white sand, clear blue waters and bird hides for watching the wildlife. You can easily feel the hours slip by in this relaxing corner of the world. If wildlife watching is your kind of thing, you can take the ferry over to Handa Island, where over 150 species of birds are waiting to welcome you. Come during May, June and July to find the charming puffins who make this island their home. If a boat tour is more up your street, wildlife cruises operate from the nearby village of Kylesku, where you will have the opportunity to spot other animals, such as whales, dolphins and otters.
Located within the North West Highlands UNESCO Global Geopark, Scourie is the ideal location for lovers of outdoor pursuits. Walks from the village include wandering along to the cliffs for dramatic views to the mountains, climbing Cnoc a' Bhuthain or trekking to the village of Tarbet. For those looking to tackle a mountain, Ben Stack, Ben Hee and Suilven are all within an hour’s drive. The sea and many lochs surrounding Scourie provide the perfect environment for water sports. Kayaks, canoes and small crafts can be launched from the Scourie Pier – only a 5-minute walk from the property. Fishing is a popular activity in the area, with brown trout, sea trout and salmon all being plentiful.
Although Scourie may be remote, all basic needs can be met by the fantastic local services.

We had a fantastic stay at Roseville, it is exceptionally well appointed, warm and comfortable. The location was fantastic for a week of exploring the area. Thank you, we hope to come back soon!
Cannot speak too highly of this holiday accommodation. Recently modernised to a high standard, it was a pleasure to stay. Hygiene standards excellent. Within easy reach of hotels and restaurants if eating out is a change from using the superb kitchen. Lots of interesting places to visit, good walks through heather and beaches.
Great cottage. Very nicely renovated in a perfect location. Everything we needed was included in the cottage, and it was spotlessly clean. So many great things to do in close proximity, beaches, mountains, etc.
Having Roseville as our base for exploring the Assynt area was perfect. The house has been designed with careful thought about what visitors want for a comfortable stay. Above and beyond facilities like multiple en-suite rooms, SkyQ and the Nespresso machine were greatly appreciated. The village shop had all the provisions we needed and the hotel, although only serving their guests at the time of our visit due to COVID, seemed to have a nice bar and restaurant. Roseville offered us comfort, high standards, a super location and a real home from home. Can't recommend highly enough.
We really enjoyed our stay at this fab property. Cosy and furnished to a high standard with great equipment/facilities. The property has good access to nearby Scourie beach, local walks to the Scourie Headland and Tarbet; and further a field to nearby mountains.
We stayed here for a week in June it is a really beautiful home from home where every amenity was provided for. We all enjoyed our stay immensely and hope to return again in the future.
