'Ceol-na-Mara' – Gaelic for music of the sea – is a beautifully restored former croft house in a stunning position overlooking the north Atlantic.

The croft house was completely restored a few years ago but it retains charming traditional features including a wood burning stove, pine panelling and a Caithness flag floor.
