Featuring a stunning fan-shaped design, Hill Cottage perfectly complements the contours of the surrounding glacial landscape.
Constructed from Croft 103’s honey-coloured stone and benefiting from a south-facing aspect, this property strikes the ideal balance between spaciousness and intimacy. A substantial 7ft feather-topped bed made of lacquered steel and leather is the centre piece of Hill Cottage’s bedroom. The unique design is complimented throughout by a range of specially commissioned fixtures and fittings. Adjacent to the bedroom, the bathroom area has a walk-in double shower lined with polished Caithness stone. There are two baths – both designed to accommodate two people – one of which is outdoors on the secluded patio area overlooking the sea.
The lounge and dining area includes beautifully upholstered furniture and floor coverings in world-famous Anta tweed and a specially commissioned dining table. Effortlessly combining traditional and contemporary, Hill Cottage offers a wood-burning stove, a state-of-the-art home entertainment system and Wi-Fi. The kitchen provides everything you need to prepare locally sourced shellfish, high quality Scottish meats or to store ample wine for the duration of your stay. It is fully equipped with a modern cooker, dishwasher and fridge freezer. Sink and worktops are hand-finished in Caithness stone and a separate laundry room has washing, drying and storage facilities.
