More about Dunbuie

Dunbuie is a large traditional, detached stone cottage situated in a rural location, just a stone's throw from a stunning sandy bay in the far north west of Scotland. Dunbuie has been in the same family since it was built over a 100 years ago. The great grandfather of the current owner was a cabinet maker by trade and some of his workmanship can still be seen in the cottage. A seafaring family, there is also a beautiful cased model of a well-known tall sailing ship, which was also the handiwork of the owner's ancestor. Having undergone a programme of renovation, the cottage now provides warm and welcoming accommodation in a quiet and totally unspoilt setting.
All the rooms are bright and spacious, with high ceilings and large windows drinking in the superb country views. The attractive living room looks out over open countryside to the hills beyond. The kitchen/dining room has original solid wood flooring and is very well equipped. The adjoining conservatory is an ideal spot to sit and read or plan the next day's excursion, whilst enjoying the pretty and secluded cottage garden views. There is an en-suite double bedroom on the ground floor and a twin bedroom on the first floor. A large family-sized bathroom on the first floor completes the picture. Dunbuie is set in its own grounds, and the country gardens are a profusion of shrubs and perennial flowers, with a small burn flowing just beyond the perimeter.
