The ground floor features a light and spacious open plan living room and kitchen with oak flooring throughout, underfloor heating, log burner, smart large screen TV with Sonos soundbar. Large comfortable sofas and a double seater swivel chair from which guests can enjoy the spectacular sea views through the large glass bay window and conservatory.  

The kitchen is very well equipped and includes an Everhot electric cooker, a double induction hob, a large American style fridge freezer, a Franke boiling water & filtered cold water tap. The highlight is the unique handmade oak kitchen table with sea views from the kitchen window.

Outside
The outside space includes a sheltered and private patio equipped with large table and chairs for alfresco dining or sitting out with access from the back conservatory. There is a small raised terrace with table and two chairs outside the front door, perfect for enjoying a morning coffee. At the top of the garden there is a small log cabin which is ideal for relaxing, reading a book or sitting out on the terrace enjoying the spectacular views.
 
Directly across the small road The Neuk enjoys its own private access down to the sandy & rocky beach. Close to the water’s edge there is an enclosed grass area where guests can relax, enjoy the views and watch the passing boats and the abundant wildlife which can be spotted on or close to the rocky Rubha Mor point, where numerous birds, and occasionally dolphins and seals have been seen.

The perfect holiday getaway to relax and escape from the stresses of modern life; located close to local amenities in Kames which include a village store selling local produce and the Kames Hotel, restaurant and pub which is a 5-10 minute walk along the seafront.
