  • “A lovely location, most welcoming hosts with excellent knowledge about local history and facilities, a comfortable bed, ample hot water, well-equipped kitchen, reading materials provided, good parking facilities and easy to find.”

    Far enough from the main road to be nice and quiet. A good 'centre' for visiting Caithness and Sutherland.

    Far enough from the main road to be nice and quiet. A good 'centre' for visiting Caithness and Sutherland. Space for a drying clothes on a washing line was all that was missing.

The property

A charming stone terraced cottage situated in the friendly village of Dunbeath on the north east coast of Scotland.

This Caithness cottage enjoys a pleasant outlook and central location and is ideal for a small group of friends or couples who want to explore the stunning north east coastline.

Spacious throughout, this Dunbeath cottage is set over two floors with the first floor offering two sunny bedrooms and a bathroom, whilst the pleasant kitchen with dining area and lovely sitting room are on the ground floor.

To the front of this Dunbeath cottage on the opposite side of a road, is a pretty and very private garden, a real suntrap and an ideal place for a quiet morning cup of coffee whilst planning the day’s events.

A short stroll away is Dunbeath’s shop, pub/restaurant, heritage centre and harbour, and this Caithness cottage makes a wonderful base for walkers, fishermen and wildlife lovers who wish to explore the far north of Scotland.

Nearby Helmsdale offers enhanced facilities for both dining out and shopping and a visit to the Timespan Museum and Arts Centre gives an insight into the colourful history of the village and the surrounding area.

A comfortable and homely Dunbeath cottage in a truly unique and beautiful area ensuring a great holiday for all!

About the location


Helmsdale 15 miles; John o'Groats 37 miles.

Dunbeath is situated on the south east side of Caithness and is famous for being the birthplace of the famous author Neil Gunn who based many of his novels on and around the Dunbeath area. Rich in history, this area boasts numerous Iron Age Brochs, plus at one time Dunbeath was a booming fishing village with up to a 100 boats operating from the harbour, whilst today it offers a shop, pub and an excellent community museum located in the old village school. The A9 gives easy access along this rugged and dramatic coastline and the larger village of Helmsdale lies to the south just a short drive away, whilst to the north are numerous pretty coastal villages with John O'Groats being just 37 miles away.
