Durrie Cottage (known locally as Blue Chimneys) is a cosy traditional croft house in the West Highland village of Torridon with stunning views over Upper Loch Torridon. The cottage sleeps four people and has two bedrooms (which can be doubles or twins), a large bathroom, shower room, kitchen/diner with open fire and a separate living room with woodburning stove. There is a large enclosed lawned garden with uninterrupted views across the loch.
