Traditional 2 / 3 bedroom cottage and garden in the beautiful setting of Nedd, Drumbeg. Superb views across Loch Nedd to Quinag
Description - Set in the crofting township of Nedd amid the spectacular Sutherland mountains, lochs and coastline, this detached cottage has wonderful sea and mountain views out over Loch Nedd and across to Quinag. The cottage was built around 85 years ago in the traditional crofthouse style and retains some original features. It has a spacious living/dining room and a comfortable sitting room which could easily be used as a third bedroom if preferred. The house is double glazed and heating is provided by electric panel and storage heaters. There are fireplaces in the living room and sitting room which are not currently in use.
