Although a little remote it is not far to access Northern Scotlands delights. Also shops and everything else you could need can be found in Wick. A separate 2 nd toilet is an absolute bonus.

The cottage was a delight, the views magnificient. To wake up and have breakfast with that view was fantastic, it just never got old The cottage was well equipped and clean, we found there was plenty of room and soon found the best places to go. We have already talked about returning to this cottage next year, but maybe for longer than 2 weeks.

The location of the cottage was absolutely perfect for us, as we like to be isolated and enjoy our privacy.
