The House at Mackay’s is a relaxing, rural haven in the Highlands, offering guests unrivalled access to some of the most scenic parts of Scotland. Isolated, hidden away far into the north of the country, The House at Mackay’s is perfectly located for lovers of the great outdoors with plenty of gorgeous hiking routes and walking paths right on your doorstep. Perfect for small groups of friends or family, or couples after a romantic retreat, this property ensures you can absorb all of the natural wonder around you, whilst staying in the most northerly village on mainland Britain.
Made with natural materials, The House at Mackay’s is furnished with a range of bespoke and vintage pieces. Giant, comfy beds offer a great night’s sleep; the big deep baths ensure you’ve got the perfect place for a relaxing soak; and the comfy upstairs living room has a spectacular view out across the rugged countryside. You might even be lucky and spot the illusive Northern Lights. Or why not spend some time in the open-plan living space downstairs and while away hours sitting with a book in front of the roaring fireplace? Once you leave you will have truly got into the spirit of real rural living.
The gorgeous master bedroom is a peaceful haven offering a more intimate space to get away from it all, and both the master and the second double room have comfortable super king feather topped beds. There’s also a twin room on offer, which is perfect for children. There are two bathrooms, where you can rest after a day’s hiking and enjoy a long soak, or just hop in for a quick shower before heading out for the day.
Guests can also cook up some wonderful food in the functional kitchen, which has everything you’ll need to cater for everyone in your party. There’s a range cooker, a dishwasher and a super-sized fridge freezer along with a number of other useful appliances. Then be sure to dine together in style on the walnut table, gazing out at the view.
In summer you can enjoy a morning coffee out on the decking before heading out to seize the day. And those of you who enjoy the wonders of nature will be spoiled for choice. There are endless walking opportunities all around as you stroll among the local farmland, across rugged cliff tops, and down on the sandy beaches nearby. And, whilst the location is remote, there is a very good small village store nearby that the owners encourage you to support.
