With outstanding panoramic views over the sea to the Orkney Isles beyond this single storey cottage has a stunning setting

With outstanding panoramic views over the sea, to the Orkney Isles beyond, Clynescroft is a charming, single storey, holiday cottage. Originally the stables for the adjoining farmhouse, Clynescroft offers bright and spacious accommodation for up to three people in a stunning setting. The main living area is open plan. This delightful room looks out across the Pentland Firth, with Dunnet Head in the foreground and the distant Orkney Isles clearly visible. There is a good sized double bedroom with an extra single bed, making it adaptable accommodation for up to three. The modern shower room also has a sauna; ideal for pampering after a day’s exploring. Situated only 4 miles from Thurso and with miles of dramatic and scenic coastline right on the doorstep, it provides a comfortable base from which to explore this beautiful and unspoilt area of northern Scotland. Just 10 minutes’ away is one of the most fantastic beaches in the UK.  With miles of golden sand and massive sand dunes forming a backdrop, Dunnet beach is simply spectacular.  Surfing, body-boarding, sand-buggying, swimming, horse riding and wildlife watching are all local pastimes, yet this superb beach is never crowded.  Nearby Dunnet Forest has miles of lovely walks and cycling trails, with picnic areas and unusual sculptures to encounter on the way.  It is also close to the Highland Tourist trail that runs from Wick harbour in the east through to Ullapool in the west.  This trail follows a route right across the far north and west of Scotland, taking in some of the most dramatic scenery, with mountain ranges, secluded beaches and awe inspiring and ever changing coastline along the way. The nearby Castle of Mey, beautifully restored by the late Queen Mother, is a must.  This fairytale castle has a fascinating history and the gardens, grounds and views are superb. The whole area is renowned for its bird and sea life. Puffins, Great Skua, otters, seals, dolphins and whales are all seen around these coastal waters. An excellent boat trip runs from John O’ Groats to encounter the sea life close to hand and to explore this fascinating coastline from a different perspective. At Melvich, just along the coast, there is also a colony of puffins, and at Forsinard, Strath Halladale, there is an RSPB nature reserve where local rangers will take visitors to explore the bird life, flora and fauna of the area.  Historical sites and places of interest abound.  A local archaeological trail provides a tantalising glimpse into times past, with brochs, cairns and ancient sites along the way.  Take a day trip across to the Orkney Isles and explore Neolithic villages, standing stones, Scapa Flow and the amazing Italian chapel built by prisoners during the Second World War.  There are also many excellent golf courses in the region, and plenty of opportunities for fishing, coast and forest walking and cycling - taking advantage of the quiet country lanes and spectacular coastal scenery. The town of Thurso, 4 miles away, has an excellent selection of bars, cafes, shops and restaurants. Originally built by the Vikings and added to over the centuries it now offers visitors a fascinating mix of ancient and modern.  The new Caithness Horizons visitor centre is well worth a visit.  Facilities also include a swimming pool, leisure centre, cinema, boating lake, quad biking, horse riding and sailing.

    Magic viev from the window on Dunnet Head and the Orkneys. Wonderful large beach only two miles west. Severals very nice coastpaths nearby, not only at Dunkenby Head, also at Holborn Head! Friendly owners living next to the cottage who help in any case. Heating works quite good when it is a bit cold outside, and there is a small sauna in the bathroom that works pretty well! We would like to stay there again, we loved it!

    Nice, clean well-equiped property. Ideal as a base for touring the North Highlands or for visiting Orkney on a day trip. Only one niggle in that the TV reception was poor but could be vastly improved with an outside aerial.
