Rose Cottage is a unique 18th Century lime washed stone built cottage with a south facing aspect which is located a short distance from Whiting Bay. It has been sympathetically renovated creating a delightful home in a peaceful rural location, oozing charm and maintaining much of the original character. Accommodation comprises large open plan lounge area with galleried mezzanine floor, kitchen, bathroom and one double bedroom. It is a Category B listed building of architectural and historic interest and it is believed it was built in the 18th century as a long house typical of the Western Isles built on falling ground with a sloping roof ridge. Further information on this can be accessed on the Historic Scotland website at

Rose cottage is full of charm and character having been beautifully renovated and restored in keeping with its historic status.
The timber stable door to the front entrance opens into the open plan living area, showcasing the exposed oak timber beams and stone walls. There is a handy built-in cupboard accommodating the service controls and under stair storage for out door gear and shoes.
The entire ground floor is finished with slate flagstone tiles with a recessed doormat at the stable door and underfloor heating throughout. Steps lead up to open plan lounge area with an open fire set in to the natural stone wall. The French doors open out to the rear patio and steps lead up to the kitchen.
Sitting at a higher level, the beautifully finished kitchen is equipped with integrated dishwasher, fridge, freezer and washing machine. There are country style cream base and wall kitchen units with solid oak worktops and a gas hob over electric oven and cosy space for a small dining table and chairs. A large built-in cupboard houses the hot water tank and controls for underfloor heating and air source heat pump.
From the lounge area an oak staircase leads to the small balustraded mezzanine which is presently used as a seating area but could be used as an extra sleeping area with the addition of a futon bed.
At the lower level of the cottage, the bathroom is fitted with freestanding roll top bath with shower over, low level WC and pedestal washbasin.
The gorgeous double bedroom has a tall window to the front and small floor level window to the gable and features exposed ceiling beams.
Some of the contents and furniture at Rose Cottage can be available by separate negotiation.
