Burnside is situated in the scattered crofting township of Clachtoll on the Stoer peninsula on the north-west coast of Scotland. Burnside is in an enviable location, with south facing views to the mountains of the Coigach peninsula and just a short walk from a beautiful sandy beach, one of a number along this stretch of coastline.The surrounding area is one of the last great, unspoilt wildernesses in Europe where the dramatic outlines of Suilven, Canisp and Quinag provide a backdrop for a beautiful landscape of moorland and coastline. The village of Lochinver is a thriving and busy port with fishing vessels from many parts of the world landing their catches at the fish market. The village has two small supermarkets, Post Office, petrol station, Health Centre, Community/Leisure Centre and a primary school as well as a number of other shops and facilities. Ullapool, about a 50 minute drive away, has a wider range of amenities including a secondary school.The current owners purchased Burnside in 2013 and since then have used it regularly as a second home. The cottage has been well-maintained and improved and this work includes rewiring, replumbing, a new heating system with WiFi controlled radiators, upgrading the bathroom to create a modern shower room, and renovation of the porch. In addition, new carpets have been laid and the interior redecorated. The property is comfortable and welcoming and though modernised retains the features and charm of a traditional Highland cottage.
