An Homage to Norse-Gael Heritage

57 Nord takes its name from its location on the 57th parallel nestled within the dramatic landscape of the Scottish Highlands just south of the Isle of Skye.

These are the kind of landscapes that inspire lyrics and poetry, adventure and wonder. The wild beauty of the western Highlands is where the mountains and moors meet the sea and sky and where history is around every corner.   

Elegantly crafted and curated, this holiday letting in Scotland is in robust but sensitive balance with nature. 

A modern take on the traditional crofter’s dwellings of the Highlands, the design is progressive yet timelessness, and inspired by a love of place, traditions and materials. 

57 Nord’s design philosophy pays homage to the region’s long and rich history, honoring the Norse-Gael heritage of western Scotland in a luxurious balance of modern Scandinavian, mid-century and Scottish craftsmanship.

An idyllic cottage for two, this is the place that embraces the wild beauty of the Highlands and the simple luxuries of nature and design in harmony.

Description

Nestled along the shores at the junction of three ancient sea lochs, this holiday letting in Scotland faces heart tugging views over the Kintail Mountains and the famous Eilean Donan Castle (which dates back to the 13th century) and is lit up at night.

Immersed in the stunning, unspoiled landscapes of the western Highlands, the house was modeled on the traditional crofters cottages that dot the land. 

The house blends influences ranging from a raw West Highland agricultural vernacular to Scandinavian Modernism and a less is more philosophy. 

Clad in timber, the structure is the essence of elegant simplicity inside and out, with open plan living spaces and perfectly placed windows that frame the views. 

The main room features a wood burning stove for cozy nights around the fire, a dining space, and a modern fully equipped kitchen. There is one double bedroom and a spa style bath.  

Styled with understated luxury, the interiors blend Scandinavian, mid-century and modern furnishings and decor. 

Outside, you can admire the spectacular views from the deck and  gather round the firepit.

Stroll down to the castle, and ramble along the trail to the pebble beach to soak in the raw beauty of the landscape.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES

Welcome basket of locally sourced artisanal products, honesty bar with sommelier selected wines, optional private chef available, in-house editorial guide with local insights and recommendations. 

Wifi throughout, satellite TV with Bose soundbar, portable bluetooth Bang & Olufsen stereo speaker, kitchen and bath amenities with GHD hairdryer, laundry facilities, firewood for the wood burning stove. 

AROUND

The scenic coast of Wester Ross, in the Highlands is at the intersection of Loch Duich, Loch Long and Loch Alsh, just fifteen minutes from the the Isle of Skye. 

Foodies are well catered for with nearby fine dining including the famous Kinloch Lodge, a former hunting lodge dating back to the 16th century while whisky enthusiasts will enjoy distillery tastings on nearby Isle of Skye.

Nearby Plockton village is known as the ‘Jewel of the Highlands,’ with its beautiful harbor and a selection of shops and restaurants.

Bealach na Ba is within an hour’s drive, a famous section of the North Coast 500 and one of the highest drives in the country. Twisting through hairpin bends, this breathtaking single-track road eventually drops down to Applecross, the UK’s most remote peninsula.

Glenelg Bay made famous by naturalist Gavin Maxwell in his book ‘Ring of Bright Water’ is a thirty minute drive, and the Kintail Mountains – known as the Five Sisters, is one of the most famous ridge walks with magnificent views.

The northernmost island of the Inner Hebrides – the Isle of Skye is a remote and dramatically beautiful setting.

Dunvegan Castle (believed to be the oldest inhabited castle in Britain) and its charming village, are located at the farthest northwest coast, under an hour from the island’s capital of Portree. The Old Man of Storr is an instantly recognisable landmark and the Cuillin Ridge, Fairy Pools and rugged coastline are irresistible to outdoor types. 

The peninsula includes several townships and an abundance of sleepy country roads and moors, as well as an expansive and protected wildlife habitat with an  incredible diversity of birds and marine life and dazzling displays of wildflowers in the Spring.

LOCATION

Wester Ross, Kyle, Scotland. Nearest Airport: Inverness Airport (80 miles)

BEST TIME TO VISIT: Spring through Fall with almost 18 hours of daylight during the summer solstice, and the snow capped Kintail mountains also make winter a lovely time to visit.
