A fantastic holiday home! The Herons is incredibly comfortable and well equipped. The welcome hamper with local preserves was delicious. We had some crazy wild weather during our stay but the house kept us warm and entertained! The views from every window are just gorgeous, and our dog loved exploring the secure garden. Whilst there, we visited Keiss Harbour, Wick, John O’Groats, Thurso, Dunnet Head and Duncansby to name a few. We will definitely be returning!

Everything thought of from emergency lamps and torches to a “ spares “ drawer with batteries and bulbs , information folders on appliances, fire regs , local amenities and even recycling info . Fall asleep and wake to the sound of the sea bliss Excellent stay

Overall, The Herons Holiday Cottage exceeded expectations. We were very impressed with its cleanliness, location and, how well equipped each room was. We were awoken each morning to breathtakingly beautiful views of the ocean and, the close proximity of the shore enabled us to indulge in a walk each dawn upon the beach. The furnishings within the cottage were exceptional - it was like a home from home! Would definitely stay again and we highly recommend to others.
