Rural setting

The Ivy Wing and The Cottage are situated in the courtyard of Barrock House and surrounded by landscaped grounds and mature woodland. This provides shelter for an abundance of bird and wildlife with pleasant walks close at hand and the scenic beaches of Sinclair and Dunnet Bay are just 5 minutes by car. The Cottage makes the perfect base for touring this unspoilt and tranquil part of the Highlands. Visit the Castle and Gardens of Mey, the Queen Mother’s Highland home, John O’Groats, Wick Heritage and Lyth Arts Centre, or take a wildlife or distillery tour. Golfing, fishing, sea trips or walking along the many miles of rugged coastline are just some of the many activities available. Lyth is situated just 10 miles north of Wick and 15 miles from Thurso, making the beautiful Orkney Isles easily accessible by car ferry for day trips. Both properties can be booked together for larger groups (ref’s W42082 and W42083). Shop, pub and restaurant 4½ miles.

A great base for touring the area. Situated in a very peaceful, woodland setting this cottage was warm and cosy with a very comfortable bed. We especially appreciated the little touches that make so much difference i.e. bottle of wine, fudge and fresh flowers. The owner went out of her way to ensure that we had a very pleasant stay. We would certainly return
