Lower Hilton Cottage is a charming cottage set on the edge of the hamlet of Culrain in Sutherland. The cottage is on a sheltered, elevated site and has spectacular far reaching views over the meandering Kyle of Sutherland and to the Sutherland hills beyond. The area is unspoilt and offers a wide range of activities including hill walking, world class salmon fishing on local rivers and golf on the east coast links courses. There is an award winning beach at Dornoch and the west coast with its beautiful coastline and excellent sailing is only an hour’s drive away.
Ardgay has a convenience store while Bonar Bridge has a butcher, post office, bank and primary school. Secondary schooling is available in Dornoch or Tain, both of which offer a further range of shops and facilities. Inverness, about an hour's drive away, has all the amenities of a modern city as well as its airport with regular flights to the south and to Europe.
Lower Hilton Cottage offers extremely comfortable accommodation with its welcoming reception hall and dining room, sitting room with exposed beams and wood burning stove, bespoke fitted kitchen and bright and spacious bedrooms.
The current owners purchased the property in 2017 and since then have sympathetically modernised and improved the cottage to create delightful, well-appointed accommodation. Work carried out includes a new flat roof and larch cladding on the rear extension, a new boiler, new radiators, new wood burning stove and flue, new flooring and underfloor heating in the kitchen, a new bathroom and complete redecoration. The Scandinavian style finishes and decoration create a calming interior.
Prior to lockdown, Lower Hilton Cottage had been a holiday let for 2 years achieving a 5* rating on Air BnB and with a high level of occupancy. The owners haven’t re-opened the cottage for holiday lets.
