    Fabulous views and a real get away from it all feel to this superbly equipped, characterful cottage. We spent a very relaxed New Year at Owl Cottage and would recommend to all. The area's attractions were all closed for winter during the time we were there so the fact that the cottage was welcoming and warm after our long beach and wild windy hill walks was perfect. Great location to get to John O'Groats too. Best bit was the stunning seascape view from the fantastic living kitchen. Only point we'd make is that the comfy chairs aren't quite! Thabks so much for a great start to 2019!

    Owl cottage is a very special place. If you are looking for spectacular views, in a comfortable warm and tastefully decorated home along with a great kitchen to cook in, then look no further. In a world that can seem too fast where there is little peace here up a hill in Helmsdale I find the quiet I long for. We love this place so much that we are already planning to come back in the spring, ideally for a fortnight. We added up we have been coming here for around 10 years now. Much of our time is spent looking out across the ever changing sea, reading books or on a clear night looking up at the stars that seem to shine so brightly here. There are also great beach walks where we often see seals and other wildlife but hardly any humans, a rare thing these days. There are lovely restaurants in nearby towns and fun things to do if you want to do them. However if you are looking for a holiday with great mobile phone coverage, super fast broadband and top michelin starred restaurants, this is not the place for you.

    Owl cottage is a very special place to go on holiday. The cottage is beautifully done out and is in an amazing location overlooking the sea. If you are looking for a place away from it all then you should come here. The cottage is surround by lovely countryside with some great walks and beautiful white sandy beaches. I've been coming here for the past few years and always enjoy myself and feel refreshed and relaxed after spending time in this wonderful place.
