About Ceannbeinne

Ceannbeinne sleeps four guests and is situated on the coastal road, approximately three miles out of Durness, in an elevated position perched on the clifftop. With rocky hills towering behind the cottage and rugged cliffs that plunge down to the breathtaking sandy bay below, the coastal location is one of the finest that mainland Scotland has to offer.

Formerly a croft and barn, Ceannbeinne has been converted to harmonise beautifully with its stunning dramatic location. Lay in bed and listen to the noise of waves lapping on the shoreline below; sit outside with your morning tea and inhale the crisp sea air; then enjoy the glow of the Aga as you tuck into breakfast and marvel from the kitchen table at one of the most superb seascapes on offer in Britain.

In the evening, enjoy supper under the exposed beams in the large sitting room and then warm around the fire with a dram or two!

Durness is surrounded by a picturesque rugged coastline and is a thriving crofting community nestling amongst majestic mountains and wide sandy unpolluted beaches.

This is true Mackay country, where you will see lots of ruined settlements, cairns and brochs that give a sense of the long and turbulent history. In days gone by, Norsemen, on their way to Ireland, would navigate their ships around Cape Wrath and at times come ashore and visit Durness. True to their Norse ancestral roots, the original settlers delighted in passing on stories and tales, and there is hardly a loch, bay or hill locally that doesn't have its own ghost to boast about! Although the spectral residents are yet to be seen, the breathtaking Northern Lights provide an equally fascinating sighting, as do the whales playing in the water if you are luck enough to catch a glimpse.

There is plenty to do in the area including fantastic hill and mountain walking; fishing (both sea and salmon/trout), deer stalking; hill lochs to explore, 9 hole golf links, friendly pubs and restaurants and incredible expansive quiet beaches. The traditional large Highland fishing harbour of Kinlochbervie is nearby and worth a visit to watch the fishermen landing their catch.
