Durness Accomodation

In Durness, high season tends to match the summer school holidays, with mid-season a month either side. Mid-July til the end of August are the core weeks for the Durness school summer holidays. 

The private and state schools tend to have differing half-term dates, but normally the first half of June is summer half-term. Booking early is always a good idea. You have a much better chance of getting your preferred date and accommodation. But, that doesn't mean its impossible to get a late booking. 

More and more cottages seem to be signing up with agencies to help with their bookings.

Families, Friends and More

There are many benefits to a self-catering holiday in Durness. No pressure from the owner to eat meals at specific times, when you are self-catering the food is ready when you want it to be ready. 

And it also gives the freedom of eating out without needing to reorganise any plans in your accomodation. You don't need to tell anyone, just sit down and order! For many people the idea of a Durness cottage holiday allows them to relax, take long rambling walks and stop off at a country pub for a pint and a ploughman's lunch. 

For many, however, its a chance to really do something active, from running and mountain biking to swimming and climbing.
