About the property

Lybster 2 miles.

This lovely, well-presented detached cottage is situated in a quiet location with sea views, within a beautiful and remote part of Scotland, two miles from the village of Lybster.

Rose Cottage is a fresh, bright and welcoming holiday retreat, a real 'get away from it all', where visitors will appreciate the unspoilt scenery with its rugged coastline.

Ideal for a family, couples or friends, this immaculate and tastefully presented cottage has three generous bedrooms, a contemporary shower room and well-equipped kitchen.

The sitting room with dining area has comfy settees and is a sociable room for relaxation at the end of an active day.

Double doors from the sitting room lead through to the sun room which is a lovely sunny area to enjoy the countryside views.

A well-kept garden surrounds the cottage and is a great place to sit and soak up the views whilst enjoying a morning cup of tea.

The village of Lybster is just two miles north and has good local services including pubs and shops.

The harbour is central to Lybster which was once a busy fishing port and today boats still fish there for lobsters and crabs.

Visitors will enjoy the quiet roads leading north and a drive to the top of the UK, where John o' Groats is a must.

Further along the coast is Dunnet Head with its famous lighthouse, marking the most northerly point of the Scottish mainland.

This is also home to the RSPB's largest reserve in the UK, where you can see puffins, razorbills, guillemots and more!

A vast unspoilt area to explore, but a fabulous cottage to return to at the end of a busy day.

About the location


Wick 13 miles.

Steeped in clan history, the Caithness village of Lybster sits in a sweeping bay with views across the North Sea and down to the Moray Coast. Lybster offers a wide range of amenities including hotels, shops and a golf course. In Lybster you will be drawn in by the blend of ancient history and stunning scenery with a story of sustained development and an ability to move with the times. An exhibition about the area's history and natural heritage explains how the community survived throughout the ages. This is an area peppered with archaeological sites; the Grey Cairns of Campster sit five miles inland on the Watten road, where visitors can travel back in time by crawling inside the 5,000 year old cairn or by exploring the Achavanich Standing Stones which stand sentry by Stempster Hill. Birdwatchers can observe breeding colonies of seabirds, on the cliffs around Lybster or view them seasonally through the camera link recording them.
