    “There are only a couple of very small negative issues that we came across with the cottage but as every property has its quirks they where easy to live with and did not make our stay any less enjoyable, our double bed sank in the middle slightly meaning you had a tendancy to roll towards the centre, also the bedroom door if not properly clicked shut would swing inwards and hit the bed, very noisy waterworks - if someone went to the bathroom in the night it is heard through out the house also you can hear the slightest movement of anyone on the ground floor in the bedrooms above.”

    As we had dogs and understandably they are not allowed upstairs it would have been nice to have a stair gate available rather than monitor their movement all week.

Overall the cottage is fantastic, very warm and comfortable, and in a good position if you wish to explore the North coast or to fish the amazing river that is on its door step

The property

Resting on the outskirts of the pretty hamlet of Forsinard, in the Scottish Highlands, is this interesting listed croft dwelling which in its day was used as a school and a local place of worship.

The property has been renovated to provide an exceptional base for friends and families who are looking to escape to the countryside which includes underfloor heating making it a cosy place to stay.

Discover a well-presented open-plan living space, which has been styled with a lovely light decor and wonderful period features such as the stone inglenook fireplace, showcasing the wealth of character this property has.

There is a TV, WiFi and a large pool table available to keep you entertained during your trip, something your little ones in particular will delight in.

The kitchen has been fitted to a high-standard, with ashen wooden units and sleek worktops providing a selection of contemporary appliances so you can easily cook up a delicious home-cooked meal, to be enjoyed at the dining table.

There are four bedrooms, a double and twin resting on the ground floor and a further queen-size and twin situated on the first-floor.

Each bedroom has plush beds, plenty of contemporary furniture to store your personal items and best of all offers stunning countryside views from all angles, the perfect picture to wake up to every morning!

Due to your rural location, you will have easy access across the rolling countryside, the ideal secluded spot for those who enjoy a bit of exploring.

About the location

THURSO

John O' Groats 14 miles, Wick 20.4 miles.

Thurso is the most northerly town in mainland Scotland and also boasts the country's most northerly railway station! Guests can take a ferry across to Orkney. John O'Groats Ferries offer the popular day trip package of ferry and tour. Orkney is a great place to visit and the ferry crosses regularly throughout the year from Scrabster and Gills Bay. If you take your car then remember to book first! Another great place to visit is the Queen Elizabeth Castle of Mey, why not walk around the stunning gardens or take the children to the animal farm! Thurso benefits from a pretty seafront location and from here you can see the remains of Thurso Castle. The newer part of the town benefits from wide streets with Sir John's Square at the centre. The town offers a good selection of shops, restaurants and hotels and everything that visitors to the area could possibly need. The Dunnet beach is a fantastic beach to visit! It is also situated perfectly for a visit to John O'Groats, which is just 14 miles away and Durness, where Smoo Cave, Cape Wrath and the Durness Golf Course are well worth a visit.
