    About this property

    With so much to offer both inside and out, this wonderful Highland cottage is the perfect retreat for all the family.
    Roslyn is a detached cottage, set into the hillside above Torrisdale Bay, one of the most spectacular beaches to be found in the British Isles. Built by the owner’s father fifty years ago to maximise the views across the bay, the cottage enjoys the most amazing seascapes from every aspect. Roslyn has been renovated to provide bright contemporary accommodation throughout, thoughtfully furnished with your comfort in mind. The fully fitted kitchen has an oil Rayburn as well as an electric cooker. There is plenty of room for family breakfasts, and there is a separate dining room and a breakfast area in the kitchen. The charming living room has a feature electric wood burner and enjoys wonderful views across the sands to the sea beyond. There is a double bedroom on the ground floor as well as a family bathroom, ideal for less mobile guests. Upstairs are two further bedrooms, which have been well presented with colour coordinated soft furnishings and sumptuous beds.
    Roslyn is situated on the renowned North Coast 500 route, arguably one of the most scenic road trips, encompassing wild countryside, spectacular coastlines, numerous villages, small towns and historic places of interest along the way. There are superb coastal walks right on the doorstep, as well as ancient castles, archaeological sites and places of interest all within a short drive. For wildlife enthusiasts there are puffins, cormorants, seals, dolphins, whales, deer and pine marten all seen in the region. There are good facilities in the small village of Bettyhill, including two shops (one of which includes a post office), hotel, café, restaurant and even a swimming pool. Golf, fishing, kayaking, sailing, cycling, horse riding and hill-walking are all local pursuits. Beach ½ mile. Shops, pub and restaurant 500 yards.

    "It was amazing and the swimming pool in the village was great we loved it and so did the dogs"
    Lynne ‐ 29 Oct 2018
    "We can't fault Roslyn - warm, clean, cosy, homely with great views of the sea, river, beach, mountain and seals! Our host was very helpful and friendly. We could quite happily live at Roslyn. Unfortunately the tourist info, gift shop and other locations were closed meaning that we had very little available in Bettyhill and so we travelled a lot to explore and go shopping. The locals were all friendly and the views were amazing. The weather was not welcoming though but luckily we had prepared for this!"

    "This is easily the best rental we have stayed in.Everything you need was in the property and the views were excellent. The owner was passionate about this property and it showed in the detail, she called to see us and check everything was OK, SUPERB."

    "Lovely cottage. Clean, comfortable and tastefully furnished. Owner has considered everything needed for self catering. View from all windows is fantastic."
    Natalie ‐ 15 Sep 2018
    "Very well equiped cottage with very friendly, generous and respectful owners. We were still surprised by the views which the pictures cannot do credit to. Amazing. Many secret coves and beaches around if you are prepared to explore. Every window in the cottage has a view to die for. In the evenings we sat at the garden bench watching the sea and the changing colours of the scenery. Thanks Amanda for a warm and friendly week."

    "excellent position overlooking torrisdale bay everything in the cottage that you could possibly need the owners were fantastic lovely people the welcome was warm and they made barney our retriever very welcome we would have no hesitation in returning to this lovely home the walks and beaches are fabulous clean with crystal clear waters"
    David ‐ 29 Apr 2018
    "A really stunning location with spectacular views to greet you every morning. You must visit some of the remote sandy beaches and experience the walk with no-one else in sight. An excellent cottage which is very clean and tidy with almost all the facilities you will need and a great welcome pack to get you started. The only reason I did not score a 10 is there is no WiFi and the Sky TV did not perform well in inclement weather. Nevertheless, these are things you can do without in such a wonderful spot. There is a local store for all those essentials, and the local hotel does good meals. Definitely one to return too."

    James ‐ 3 Apr 2018

    "Absolutely fantastic would recommend this lovely place and location to anyone x"
