Otterburn 1 in the Remote Scottish Highlands With Breathtaking Seaviews

Waterfront Holiday home with kitchen and patio
Otterburn 1 Cottage is located in the sleepy crofting township of Melvaig, Gairloch in the remote West Highlands of Scotland. A modern, fully equipped, fully renovated crofter’s cottage, where you can recharge and unwind, while you watch the ever-changing seascapes over the sea to Skye. Otterburn 1 offers a double and twin bedroom, upstairs toilet and shower room and fully equipped kitchen including washing machine, dishwasher, oven, hob, fridge and freezer and much more. If it is peace and quiet you are after then Otterburn 1 will deliver, the last house before the lighthouse. Nothing to disturb you in the private garden expect for beautiful white gannets diving into the sea and sea eagles soaring overhead as you watch it all from the comfort of the sofas in the spacious conservatory, which runs the length of the cottages. The cottage offers access to Melvaig’s pebble beach and the most stunning views of Skye, Rona and Raasay. In fact Otterburn got it’s name from the otter which run down the drive of the house as it heads towards the beach for it’s supper. A warm west coast welcome awaits you...
