The coastal village of Inverkirkaig is set in the county of Sutherland, a lovely and unspoilt part of the N.W. Scottish highlands. Situated in a beautiful location in the corner of Inverkirkaig bay, the chalet is about 20 metres from the waters edge. There are beaches where children can explore and play and you can wade out quite a way when the tide is in. The bay is ideal for windsurfing, dinghy sailing and canoeing with most wind directions.
There is a balcony with stunning views out over the bay, where you can eat at any time of day. Taking breakfast outside, to the accompaniment of the sights and sounds of the bay, is a fine way to set you up for the day and leave behind the cares and worries of everyday life.
There are some beautiful coast and hill walks almost on the doorstep and there is an abundance of all sorts of birdlife and wildlife. There are several fishing locations within about a 15 mins. walk from the chalet.
For those not fully familiar with the term 'But 'n Ben', this is a traditional Scottish 2 room holiday cottage with the Butt end being the living-room and the Ben being the sleeping area. It was immortalised by 'The Broons', who holidayed every year at their But 'n Ben in the highlands. Traditionally, there would have been no mains electricity, lighting would have been by Paraffin lamps and water would usually have been drawn from a nearby well or loch or possibly a tank filled by a stream. When you visit our But 'n Ben, you will find we have made some notable improvements on the traditional 'facilities'!
