In Durness, Britain's most north-westerly village – a land of herds of deer, heather-strewn mountains and rugged cliffs – lies Croft103, two super luxurious five-star self catering properties. Hill Cottage and Shore Cottage, well away from main roads in utter isolation, have been a labour of love for couple Fiona and Robbie Mackay, who've taken every effort to create the ultimate contemporary escape for couples. Thanks to their vision and attention to detail Croft103 is hailed as the Highlands' coolest – and most remote - cottage. Whichever property you pick you can spread yourself out on the mammoth seven-foot by seven-foot bed, cook in the sleek brushed aluminium kitchen and curl up on the rug in front of the woodburner. The simplicity of the surroundings trumps it all; gaze out of the floor-to-ceiling glass windows and admire the ever-changing landscape and icy waters of Loch Eriboll, visible from every room.
What makes a stay at Croft 103 unique?

Their focus has always been to consistency, sustainability and providing an atmosphere that is entirely in line with the natural environment.
