“Comfortable cottage in a stunning location”

This cottage is quite simply the perfect location for a peaceful relaxing holiday. Located in the small community of Polin, near Kinlochbervie, with beautiful scenery and magnificent sandy beaches.

There is plenty to do in the area, including visiting Sandwood Bay (accessible only on foot but well worth the walk), Handa Island (short ferry trip), Cape Wrath (ferry+bus), Smoo cave and Balnakeil Craft Village in Durness. Walking can be done right from the cottage or further afield for the more adventurous. Or you can relax completely in the lovely secluded garden to the rear of the cottage. We managed to eat a few meals outdoors, table & chairs provided. Midges were not a problem.

Polin Beach House is very well equipped and comfortably furnished. Both bedrooms have a sea view, good storage and extremely comfortable beds. The sound of the surf lulls you to sleep at night and you wake to sheep bleating from surrounding hills. No traffic, nothing to disturb your rest. The kitchen has a Rayburn stove which makes it very cosy, great for drying clothes on the airer and wet boots, too. There is a washing machine and large chest freezer. There is a downstairs toilet with wash basin and the upstairs bathroom has a shower. There are TVs in the lounge and bedrooms, and a selection of DVDs, games and books. Wifi is free and worked well during our visit, however there is no mobile phone signal in the house. The owner lives next door and is very friendly but unobtrusive.

Kinlochbervie has a small Spar supermarket with a cash machine and is only a short drive away. There are a few eating places within easy driving distance.

An idyllic holiday location for couples or families. Polin beach is 5 minutes walk from the cottage and Oldshoremore just along the road. Whether you want to get away from it all and unwind or need a base for an active outdoors holiday, Polin Beach House is ideal. After a week I did not want to leave and cannot wait to return.
