The Brigs overlooking Clashnessie Bay, Oldany Island, Handa and the hills of Tarbet

The perfect base to enjoy Sutherland at its best

Hill and coastal walking, fishing, deer stalking, bird watching, sea trips and kayaking, sight seeing, photography, painting, soaking up the history and culture of the Highlands - all available locally.

Located 500 metres up an unmade croft access road, the cottage is uniquely situated to enjoy the beauty and tranquillity of the area.  The views in all directions are stunning. Wildlife abounds.  Foxes, badgers and deer can frequently be seen on the surrounding croft, buzzards soar overhead, and a wealth of stonechats, warblers, swallows, bunting, wagtails and wheatears visit in their seasons.

The best months to visit are May and June when the sun is high in the sky, the days are long,  with short starry night skies, birds breeding, excellent walking and fishing - all subject to the highland weather of course, but average daylight hours and clear days well exceed those of July and August.

Well appointed cottage with expansive views, a place to rest and rejuvenate (Sep 14 - New South Wales)

Quiet, peaceful and beautiful location. We must return in the summer (Sep 14 - South Africa)

Every thing was quite perfect - the house, the views, the weather. I just could not close the bedroom curtain looking to the sea as it was so beautiful. Could have stayed there a long time. The whole area is so special and magical. We would certainly like to return and perhaps make it an annual event. (Jul 14)

Just to let you know we are back home after a wonderful week at your beautiful home. We were very fortunate with the weather and really enjoyed the beaches and mountains. Thank you so much for letting us stay it was a great tonic for us all! (Apr 14)

Third year running - fantastic! (Sep 14)

Perfect place to spend quality time with our New Zealand cousins. Gorgeous setting. Great walks. Could sit and admire the view from the dining room window for another week at least! (Aug 14)

We had an awesome time in your home and the surrounding countryside. To spend time there with my UK based brother, his wife and 2 boys was special. However I mostly want to congratulate you on your home and how well prepared it was for guests. In particular we loved the spaciousness of the living areas, lobby and bedrooms. We have told many others about your house and wonderful local area. Let us know if you travel this way. (Aug 14 - New Zealand)

Picture postcard weather, amazing wildlife and immaculate cottage which catered for every need all made for an unforgettable holiday (Oct 13)

One of the cleanest self catering cottages we have ever used.  Your housekeeper is to be congratulated.

We really enjoyed our stay at Easter.  The cottage was very comfortable and well equipped. The views were fantastic, and we have loads of superb photographs.

We had a fantastic holiday which included seeing the sun and some beach days for the kids. The house apart from being in a stunning location, was lovely and clean and very well equipped for all 9 of us. Thank you for having us, we would love to come back some time.

We had a great time on holiday and have promised ourselves to go back sometime. The house was fabulous, well equipped and very comfortable. There's not much more could have been provided. I'll definitely be recommending your property to friends and family.

Great week and lovely weather. No rain at all! Good fishing (pollock) from rocks on the beach when the tide is in. Wish we had a second week.

Happy to recommend your cottage to friends. The location is fantastic.

We had such a great time. May we book the same weeks next year?

A second fantastic holiday here with 2 weeks great weather. So many wonderful walks and lots of wildlife. Lovely trip to Handa once again.

Lots of beach trips and swimming in the sea. Went on evening wildlife/fishing trip with Paul from Handa Island ferry - 100 dolphins and porpoises around the boat - fantastic for the kids and well worth the £50 for 4 for 2 hours. They also sell lobsters and other shell fish.

Great Location, wildlife, hills, lochs, sea - fantastic. Good fishing for mackerel, pollock & brown trout. Spotted dolphins, porpoises and sea eagles off Stoer.  Guest stars Basil Brush, Stinky the Badger & Vladimir the Common Gull were frequent visitors

Wonderful week with our family here at the Brigs. The house had everything we needed. Thank you.

A great week despite mixed weather. Amazing house. Superb location. Very comfortable and enjoyable time. Thank you.

Amazing place. Stunning views from the house. Saw deer and seals. Don't want to go home. Will certainly come back again.

Wow!  Two weeks excellent weather for walks, paddling, and nature watching and The Brigs so comfortable to come back to.

Such a great location ....... We had everything we needed at the house & loved the location & views. We even made it to the Highland Games which was a fab day out. Would certainly recommend The Brigs to others.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Brigs. Its very much like a home from home. A lot of rentals can seem as sterile and uninspiring as hotels, but the Brigs provides a warm, comfortable and welcoming environment. Its the first time I have stayed at a rental that provides nice touches like binoculars. We all really appreciated that the beds and sofas are very comfortable. 

I have been visiting Assynt for over 30 years and am used to the dramatic scenery but the view from the hills behind the house is astonishing. I got a clear view from Foinaven in the north taking in all of the mountains like a catalogue list all the way past Coigach in the south. An easy walk for everyone and well worth it, with very interesting terrain above the falls.

Excellent trout fishing on the Assynt lochs

Good sea fishing too!
