Elliot Houses is a new holiday letting enterprise created by Elizabeth and Andrew Elliot. The houses boast luxurious self catered accommodation, with wood burning stoves (except for the compact Beach Bothy at Balnakeil), slate and oak floors, granite work surfaces, flat screen TVs, and memory foam mattresses with crisp white bed linen.
The interiors have been largely influenced by Anta designs. These are combined with solid wood Indigo furniture, creating a unique atmosphere which is contemporary whilst retaining a sense of the traditional - this makes the houses both relaxing and cosy enough for all to enjoy. Dignity, Time and Balnakeil House are featured on the 100 BEST GUIDE to cottages in Scotland.
Scottish Borders & SUTHERLAND
We have renovated four properties to a very high standard for 2012. We are delighted to open two new barn conversions in the Scottish Borders, Dignity (sleeps 8) and Time (sleeps 8-10).
Also the A-listed 9 bedroom Balnakeil house, which sleeps up to 17, as well as a compact Beach Bothy, for 2, will soon be opened. These are situated at Balnakeil near Durness (right on the north-west tip of mainland Scotland).
