This cottage is absolutely delightful. We used it as a base to explore the northern end of the North Coast 500 route. We would be out all day exploring the area and then spend the evenings in the homely cottage drinking in the view, enjoying the fire and finding out more about th…

Andrew ,I am delighted that your trip went so well. I could only think of your message when you booked how you had camped last year. I was so glad you were able to really get enjoyable relaxing evenings . It is rather fun to say that you had to light a fire in August! But I know exactly what you mean you need one to take off the tiny chill and set the scene. Yes do please come back anytime . We love guests like you !

Gillian's place is the perfect remote getaway in a really wonderful part of Scotland where the mountains meet the sea. Plenty of hiking nearby as well as coastal adventures. The house has all you need for your peaceful weekend. Be aware there is no internet connection and phone …

Hi Sarah So glad you had a real chance to recuperate. Yes those huge skies, mountains ,seas and beaches really do bring one's soul down to earth. Yes the internet is a pain but as you say very liberating also. Great for switch off time . We have no internet or electricity at another cottage up there and that is even more restful. Not easy to find those sort of places in Britain. Yes come cack if you can and we will happily accommodate you .We did the extension in two parts A smaller one first then decided to go bigger! We hardly move out of that room when there! Thank you

Well I am glad that you had time to take in so many sights and walks on your short stay at Carbreck. As you say it wonderfully situated so you can travel north or south from the cottage . Glad you discovered the shop and the Café. Good luck with your book .

Carbreck is a really nice, warm and homely cottage. The kitchen is fully equipped and there are nice and comfy beds. The house is clean and cosy. The area is really beautiful. Carbreck is quite remote, but that is one off the best things. You are completely in the middle of High…

Thank you Reto. We do try to make the cottage a homely place to stay. Sadly these brainless idiots are often the folk who are chasing around Scotland on the North 500 trip. They seem to have expensive cars and as you say race up the tiny roads very often killing our sheep or lambs. We are trying to think of a way to slow down these crazy drivers.
