Alan and Nikki
Booking through Sykes Cottages was smooth and simple. The caretaker was friendly, helpful but not intrusive (we only saw her twice and that was at our request).
The cottage was very clean, comfortable and perfectly situated. We especially liked the open fire in the lounge and the wood burner in the kitchen.
The purpose of our holiday was to try to get some pictures of the Northern Lights and we were blessed with amazing displays on two nights. We needed a location that was isolated but not too remote as my wife is disabled. Durness has everything we needed, a local, well stocked shop and quiet, friendly pubs and cafes. Oh, and don't miss the chocolate factory less than half a mile up the road.
The only downside was that everything was very expensive. I had heard that the Scottish national pastime was overcharging and it was certainly true. Having said that, they did it with a smile.
I wouldn't hesitate to go again and in fact, we are planning to do just that. Thank you.
