Customer Reviews of Scourie Cottage, Sutherland - Sleeps 5
"Restful and active at the same time"
We have stayed at this cottage several times before and love its location and the surroundings. The cottage was clean and tidy (apart from the kitchen) when we arrived and all was in order. Although improvements have been made over the years to the property we did feel that the kitchen is now overdue for a makeover and a good clear out.
