Welcome to Norsehaven 

Take a voyage north to the rugged, breathtaking scenery of Sutherland in the far north west of Scotland. This is Mackay country and the numerous cairns, brochs and ruined settlements in the area are testament to its long and turbulent history. Norsemen would steer their long ships around Cape Wrath on the way to Ireland, and sometimes come ashore at Durness or Kinlochbervie. And it was the Vikings who gave Sutherland its name.

True to their Norse ancestry, the original settlers, love to pass on stories and there is hardly a hill, loch or bay, in the area that does not boast its own ghost or legend.

Although so far we have not met any of these spectral residents, we have witnessed the breathtaking Northern Lights, and joined with locals in watching whales play in the waters beneath the cliffs. Perhaps you too could be lucky if you come and visit us, stay in our beautiful and historic cottage near the village of Durness.

Ceannabeinne Cottage perches on the clifftops overlooking the stunningly beautiful Ceannabeinne bay.

The cottage has been sympathetically restored using local craftsmen and materials to our own exacting standards, so as to maintain the original features and style of traditional Scottish dwellings. But, however traditional they may be, all of them have the mod cons our guests expect in the 21st century.

The cottage is fitted out to a very high specification. All you will need in a kitchen, the welcome warmth of an AGA, plenty of cutlery and crockery, bakeware and cookware and a dishwasher, so no one has to wash up on holiday!

All the beds have luxurious pocket sprung or memory foam mattresses and luxury duvets with doubles on the singles, king size on the double and, along with our deep fill pillows, you’ll always be snug and warm in bed. We also provide towels, bathmats and kitchen linen too.

The magnificent beamed sitting room has a comfy sofa and chairs with throws for curling up in front of our woodturner. Enjoy full Sky TV or bring your own special DVD’s for that cosy evening in.

On beautiful days wake up to the romantic sound of the waves on the beach below and one of the finest views in Scotland.

We know that your dog is a part of your family, and well-behaved ones are always welcome, and we are also very family orientated with a travel cot provided free.

We know your holiday is precious and we take pride in every booking being dealt with personally by the owner, Richard Norman. He is always on hand with his housekeeping staff to ensure your stay in Ceannabeinne cottage will be the best holiday experience you can have.

You can book online securely, with immediate confirmation of your reservation, and then look forward to an amazing stay in Scotland, on the stunning west coast of Sutherland.
