Find cottages in LairgVisit Lairg

The Highland town of Lairg is at the crossroads to the most remote villages in Sutherland and is the perfect destination for a Highland retreat amongst stunning Highland fells, snowy peaks and boundless rivers and lochs. Visitors are drawn to this wilderness to get a real sense of the untouched, natural landscapes, thought to be amongst the most beautiful in all of Scotland.

Lairg lies on the southern shores of Loch Shin, surrounded by forest and only four miles from the Falls of Shin, where salmon leap upstream in a thrilling flock of migration. From Lairg you can travel north deeper into the wild through glens and traditional crofting settlements. Native wildlife and highland flora and fauna provide the setting for a wonderful array of country walks, hiking and horse riding trails, including through nearby Dalchork Forest.

From the centre of the village, cyclists can take the well-loved Assynt route to Loch Shin, taking in the breathtaking Scottish scenery. Highlights include the Suilven Peak and the ruins of Ardvreck Castle. Lairg is an excellent centre from which to explore the outer reaches of Sutherland. Travel west to the quaint craft shops of artisan Rosehall and further to the rugged coastline of Drumbeg and Nedd, or take a trip north west to visit the traditional fishing community at Kinlochbervie and the spectacular beaches of Durness.

The region is famous for golf, so heading east to the charming town of Dornoch will provide a contrast to the enchanting peace of Lairg. Here, Dornoch Cathedral nestles amongst gift shops, whiskey pubs and the excellent Royal Dornoch Golf Course.

Search for holiday cottages in Lairg and you'll discover the perfect cottage accommodation for your Highland escape.

Only approximately a one hour drive north of Inverness (the Highland capital), the lodges and cottages have been lovingly restored to the very highest standards to ensure a perfect holiday with every need catered for.
