    Received really warm welcome to a lovely, comfortable & well equipped cottage. Nothing was too much trouble for Jan & Alan. Well situated for exploring East & West & lovely beach within walking distance. Thoroughly recommend.

    We enjoyed our holiday in the cottage, which was spotless on arrival and we were welcomed by the owner, who lives next door. A dog bed, bowls and treats were left for the dogs, saving us having to bring them with us. The enclosed garden was a bonus. Tea, coffee etc was provided. There was lots to explore in the area, but unfortunately we had to leave early due to me having unexpected sciatica, meaning I couldn't walk far. WE would definitely use the cottage again.

    The cottage is an excellent base for visiting the far north of mainland Scotland, and close too to ferries to the Orkneys. It is extremely well equipped with a welcome tray provided. The village has limited amenities, a shop, hotel, take away outlets, and the most amazing butchers shop I have ever seen! The main advantage of the cottage is that it is comfortable enough, and large enough to have a relaxing day at home, so it suits those who are looking for a more relaxed style of holiday. Nearby Thurso has a good range of shops, the lack of traffic on the roads means that it is easy to cruise the area to look at the scenery, and to visit the few attractions in the area. The agents were extremely helpful, and ready to offer suggestions to supplement the leaflets at the cottage.

    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.
