The cottage has a stair, open from the sitting room area. It is a fairly ‘steep’ Croft house stair. However a stair gate can be fitted but only from 3 steps up. Pets are allowed but if more than one pet please arrange with myself. The garden is fully enclosed, Alix.

However if there are any problems I have family and friends who live close by who will help out with any problems - all you have to do is to get in touch, Alix

We had a great week in a lovely cottage. Our dog loved the secure garden and we walked out the door to Torrisdale beach most days. Good base for NC500. Alix the owner was very welcoming and helpful. Hope to visit again.

About the neighbourhood
Walk out the door and on to the beach - heaven for you and your dog, then come home to relax in the sun lounge. However it's also an ideal location for hill walkers, those with an interest in archeology and or geology. The local museum provides a comprehensive insight into the past of the Highands and archeological finds in the area. Bettyhill has two shops, a post office, a hotel, an Inn, a cafe (chip shop weekend evenings), and a swimming pool. Locally sourced produce and sea food can be purchased and is also served in the local Hotels, which are dotted across the area.
Getting around
All the guest I have had, up until now, have had there own transport. If any guest does not have a car I would only be happy to provide bus times, taxi information and so on. There is a comprehensive book in the cottage with general information for guests to look through, Alix
