The Hoose is right on the Harbour at Helmsdale, in arguably the best location within the village, on a quiet no-through road within feet of the water's edge. Helmsdale is an easy drive up the A9 from Inverness (or you could get the train) has two pubs, shops, a bank, Library, Visitor Centre, the best fish and chips in the North and is well placed for Highland and Island exploration - though the view from the front door could keep you occupied for hours without moving an inch. The Hoose has 3 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sitting room and a newly refurbished stunning modern kitchen/dining room/living room with amazing views of the harbour. There is a staircase in the living area of the kitchen which leads up to a 30ft playroom/study area which is a fabulous space for children to play in...The Hoose is right on the Harbour at Helmsdale, in arguably the best location within the village, on a quiet no-through road within feet of the water's edge.

A cosy home, in a beautiful setting. Would definitely return. Only one 'inconvenience': the lack of a table for meals.

About the neighbourhood
Nestling below Creag Bunillidh the traditional Highland fishing village of Helmsdale is the ideal base from which to explore Sutherland. Situated at the mouth of the River Helmsdale (from which it takes its name) it has a lot to offer the visitorSit by the harbour and watch the boats come and go, explore the beaches for gemstones and fossils, play tennis or golf, go bird watching or hill walking.The River Helmsdale is regarded as one of Scotlan;s salmon fishing rivers. Visitors can fish the river inexpensively on the association water, tickets can be purchased in the village as can tickets to fish one of the many lochs in the area for trout.. Visit some of the many ancient brochs and cairns or spend an afternoon at nearby Dunrobin Castle. When night eventually falls, call into one of th...
How to get there
Helmsdale is an easy drive up the A9 from Inverness. Follow the A9 from to Wick for approx. 70 miles, the roads are excellent but be careful as there is some twisty bends just before Golspie and Port Gower. Alternatively you can get a train or bus from Inverness to Wick calling at Helmsdale. The Hoose is right on the harbour in Helmsdale, on a quiet no-through road within feet of the waters edge.
