Our characterful cottage, built in the early nineteenth century, provides four-bedroomed
accommodation for up to eight guests. The Accommodation page provides full details of our facilities.
Uniquely located in the heart of the historic village of Helmsdale, yet overlooking the mouth of the River Helmsdale,
one of the most prestigious salmon fishing rivers in Scotland, our self-catering accommodation is the ideal location
from which to base your holiday in the Scottish Highlands. The Location page shows you exactly where to find us and
we have provided suggestions for what you can do if you come to stay with us on the Things to see and do page.
We are unique in that we offer tailor-made breaks to meet your holiday needs. Many rental properties only offer week-long
holidays. We, however, are happy to provide a quote to you for shorter stays, including during the peak summer season. Prices
for short breaks start from £200. Most rental properties also only give you the option to start your holiday on a Saturday or Sunday.
While our preferred change-over day is Saturday, we are happy to consider alternative days on request. Being able to accommodate
eight guests is obviously a great advantage for larger groups of family or friends but we understand that small parties might
enjoy the extra space we can provide. As a result our pricing structure provides a reduced cost if only one or two of our bedrooms
Please contact us if you have any queries.
You can find our special deals, last minute breaks, up-to-date information on what's happening locally and
much more on our facebook page.
