    Lovely property and hosts! Ideal base for visits to Caithness & Sutherland. The property is very clean and has everything that you need, it’s also great value for money. I’d definitely recommend this property and I’d stay here again when in the area.

    The cottage was ideally situated to explore Caithness and Sutherland. The village itself was quiet with a good butcher, general store and chip shop. The local hotel served excellent food. The cottage was warm and comfortable and very well equipped. The owners were friendly and helpful. There was even a hospitality tray provided for our arrival with tea, milk, coffee sugar and biscuits. We would definitely stay here again, it was great value for money.

    Great cottage, we'll equipped - everything you need for a self catering holiday. Very dog friendly. Good touring base for the far North of Scotland, or to enjoy the local beaches.

    Always warm, plenty of space. Shower could perhaps be hotter. Well-supplied, and bed comfortable. Owners friendly and helpful.

    Best stay everything you need supplied including a wonderful welcome pack. Owners friendly and helpful-will suggest places to visit. We were lucky with the weather and spent plenty time at the beaches and exploring the area. We had a list of places to go if weather inclement but did not require it! Would highly recommend and do plan to return again. Dog agrees 5*from all of us! Thanks.

    Gladstone Cottage is a spacious and very comfortable cottage, and was lovely and cosy despite the cold weather. It has everything you’ll need for your stay and the owners are really welcoming and helpful. There’s plenty to do in the local area. Castletown harbour is great for bird watching, there are some lovely walks and Dunnet Bay and Wolfburn distilleries are well worth a visit. We would definitely recommend the cottage to anyone looking for somewhere to stay in the Thurso area.
