    About this property

    S69727 is a fantastic family cottage that’s jam-packed with character and charm, ideally situated for exploring the Northern Highlands.
    Situated in the pretty village of Bonar Bridge, S69727 once formed part of the local foundry, where iron ore was smelted for the original Telford Bridge, which straddled the waters of the Kyle of Sutherland. Adjacent to the owner’s home, this charming, 19th century, semi-detached stone cottage has been beautifully renovated and restored and now provides bright and welcoming accommodation throughout.
    The name Bonar Bridge is derived from a Gaelic phrase Am Bannath, meaning at the lower ford. The village is situated near the site of a disused ford and where the Dornoch Firth becomes The Kyle of Sutherland which is tidal for some 10 miles upstream. In the past, Bonar Bridge was a busy port with small cargo ships taking coal and other commodities to the area and uplifting wood, marble from Assynt and iron ore from Rosehall area, all of which had been floated down the Kyle on barges. All this business gradually disappeared when the railway system arrived in the Highlands. The neighbouring crofting area of Ardgay developed into a village around the railway station with a lot of activity and employment centred on goods trains and mail trains.
    Original cottage doors open onto the main living area, which runs the length of the cottage. The deep leather sofa suite and the large 42’’ television provide modern comforts whilst the solid wood floors and windows with deep sills maintain the cottage ambience. There is a family shower room on the ground floor and two double bedrooms on the first floor, both attractively presented with colour coordinated, soft furnishings and views across to the bridge and the Kyle of Sutherland.
    S69727 is ideally located for exploring the best of the Scottish Highlands. The village of Bonar Bridge lies at a unique focus of Highland roads. The route across to the west coast from here is truly spectacular. Breathtaking mountains are interspersed with lochs and rivers, before reaching the crystal-clear waters and the white shell sandy bays of the Atlantic coastline. Travel further north to explore the wild, rugged seascapes of Caithness, or Inverness is just 40 minutes away by car. Bonar Bridge has excellent local facilities including a bakery, butcher, village store, café, pub and a bistro serving freshly cooked dishes using locally sourced produce, all within close proximity. The village also has its own 9-hole golf course. Fishing in the region is second to none, as there are 14 miles of some of the most prolific salmon rivers available to visitors with day tickets. There are also some lovely hill lochs for trout, and sea-fishing is a popular pastime along the coast.
    The Kyle of Sutherland is home to an incredible array of wildlife, such as resident otters, deer and a vast array of birds, which include osprey, whooper swans, golden eagles and buzzards. The property is just 15 minutes’ drive from the renowned Falls of Shin. Here you can watch salmon leaping up the spectacular waterfall from a specially built viewing platform. The area is also renowned for its outdoor pursuits: spectacular mountain bike trails just on the edge of the village offer easy routes for beginners, as well as extremely challenging ones for experienced riders. One thing’s for certain – all will appreciate the amazing views from the hilltop! Stoney beach 100 yards, sandy beach 13 miles. Shop and pub 100 yards, restaurant 200 yards.

    "The cottage was well stocked, clean and comfortable. The local amenities were not great. A local spar is very useful however the local pub is not somewhere I would want to visit again."
    Margaret ‐ 6 Oct 2018
    "This cottage is a wee gem would recommend it"
    Jeanette ‐ 13 Sep 2018
    "Superb cottage and very well equiped with everything you would need and more. The accommodation was spotless and comfortable, also has the advantage of a spacious parking area to the rear. The village has most things you would need - butchers, Spar shop, quaint Bistro (well worth visiting too), Post Office and a Cafe. We had a fantastic week and the cottage is ideally located to be able to get around the east, north and west coasts from here."

    "The hostess is a person who cares for the gests. The house is perfect. Well recomended"

    "Cottage was very clean and had everything you need for your stay. The location for us wasn't very good, too far from anywhere. We did enjoy our holiday but wouldn't go to bonar bridge .Not enough to do locally. The owner we felt was not very friendly, did not ask if we had enjoyed our stay when we handed keys back. Didn't even get a hello have you had a good journey when we arrived"

    "We had a very enjoyable week here. Very reasonably priced and handy for amenities in the village. Thank you."
