    Owners very nice and friendly and on hand to help.The cabin is really nice and has a good choice of lighting throughout. Shower nice and hot and seating very comfortable. We made our own meals and the oven and gas hob works a treat.We loved it and would recommend it .so much better than your normal sites as this is on its own and so peaceful. Go there,you not regret it.

  • "The Cabin was basically clean,but very worn,with signs of damp and mould everywhere, lamp shades on bedside lights, on wood in bathroom."

    When we got into bed on the first night the bedding felt very damp. The toilets where difficult to flush. Also the owners seem to have personal items in every room, allsorts in the kitchen drawers and cupboards, ear rings in the bathroom, and a couple of food items in the fridge and ice cream in the freezer. It was a wet and cold week, even by Scottish standards and the one fan heater provided was not enough. The boiler for hot water and central heating? Was running hot one minute and cold the next, we had a problem like this at home and the heat exchanger was broken. The views from the Cabin are beautiful, and wonderful sea views, the outside seating area is lovely.

Situated in Occumster, near the coastal village of Lybster in Highland, is this single-storey, two-bedroom lodge, The Cabin.

Boasting stunning sea views, ground-floor living arrangements, a rural setting with countryside scenery, and off-road parking, this family-friendly lodge is the perfect retreat for a family of four looking to enjoy the outdoors and nature-filled activities.

A well-equipped kitchen, dining room, and sitting room will greet you, featuring a Smart TV, electric fire, plush sofas, and all expected appliances to enjoy your self-catering break.

You'll also find two well-presented bedrooms, both with ample storage, one of which has a convenient en-suite cloakroom, along with a shower room, and a side-decked area, to take in your tranquil surroundings.

Travelling into the nearby village, enjoy an afternoon coffee and a slice of cake at Village Cafe, dine out at Dylan Harris Restaurant, or stock up on your 'nice to haves' at the local Premier convenience store.

For a coastal viewpoint, head to Freswick Bay, for the perfect walking route, follow Yarrows Archaeological Trail, and for a family-friendly day out, discover Ulbster Alpaca Trekking, inclusive of farm visits.

By car, enjoy a tour of The Wick Heritage Museum, reach Cairn of Get, a 5,000-year-old tomb, or perhaps climb Whaligoe Steps, alongside a 250 feet cliff.

Bird watching is one of the most popular activities in the local area, possible at Berriedale Braes Birds Watch, whilst visits to Dunbeath offers the chance to stroll around its resident Heritage Museum, or simply enjoy a picnic among Dunbeath Castle Gardens, offering something for everyone.

Make the most of your trip to Highland with a stay at The Cabin.

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.
