The cozy cottage with the magnificent view of Little Loch Shin not only really has everything a holidaymaker's heart desires, including wonderful tour suggestions and friendly animal visitors in the garden.
In addition, the nice town of Lairg with its supermarket and restaurant is the ideal starting point to explore the Highlands in all directions.
It doesn't matter which direction you choose, whether on foot, by car or by train, and whether you want to travel for two hours or a whole day, it will definitely be beautiful.
Our highlights were the waterfalls at Lairg and Golspie, driving through the Highlands to the lighthouse at Stoer, visiting Duncansby Head and driving to Loch Shin and on to the west coast.
But e.g. Loch Ness and Urquhart Castle can also be reached in two hours.
And with Dunrobin and Carbisdale Castle two magnificent castles are just around the corner.
We enjoyed every day!
And the spectacular sunset over the lake was a daily experience from the sofa or kitchen table.
The weather also played along. And on the hottest day ever on the island, we enjoyed the sun in the north at a pleasant 23°.
Benmore Cottage was the cornerstone of a dream holiday!
We recommend the house unreservedly!
