Take the coast road east out of Durness and, about three miles along, you will discover perched on the clifftop the croft of Ceannabeinne. Rocky hills soar up behind the cottage and, in front, rugged cliffs plunge to a superb sandy bay far below. The location of Ceannabeinne is considered to be among the finest on the Scottish mainland.

Originally a croft cottage and barn, Ceannabeinne has been converted in harmony with its dramatic location to provide an unforgettable holiday setting.

Wake up to the sound of waves breaking on the shore below; stroll outside with your first cup of coffee and breathe in that refreshing sea air; then tuck into breakfast by the warmth of the Aga while you enjoy one of the best seascapes in Britain from your kitchen table.

In the evening, dine in style beneath open timber beams in the huge sitting room, then gather round a glowing fire and treat yourselves to a wee dram.

Please note: we do not include the cost of electricity and oil in the weekly hire charge of the cottage. We prefer to allow our guests to choose how much heating they wish to use and the subsequent costs (which are charged at cost price) are paid after your stay. An average cost is around £70 a week.
