The garden is amazing and very secure if you bring a dog. Mine spend a very long time exploring all the previous dogs scents along the bushes and trees, and he loved the garden. It's a good base for exploring the wonderful northern coast. - Mr Mcclure, September 2018 “Wonderful cottage in a beautiful location.” Fantastic view to Dunnett Head. Quiet and Peaceful. Basic but clean and well equipped and warm. Would love to go back for more than one week and just sit in the peace and quiet. - Mr Sherwood, September 2018 “Our third visit and certainly not our last.” Excellent, well appointed accommodation in a peaceful setting. A large completely fenced in garden area that was well appreciated by Jack our Jack Russell. Ps Jack sends his thanks for the packet of doggy treats that was left for him! - Mr Ewan, September 2018 “We had a good break and the cottage was comfortable and as described.” It was situated in a good position to explore Caithness with a side trip to Orkney. However the instruction list had been lost by a previous tenant and had not been replaced. The hot water to the sinks was only luke warm and needed to be adjusted- but no instructions on how to do this. Some missing kitchen equipment as follows; bread knife and vegetable peeler. - Mrs Rickwood, June 2018 “The rural location, nearest house at least half a mile away.” The peace and quiet was amazing. Would love to go back. - Mr Green, June 2018 “The cottage is in a lovely quiet location with beautiful views all round.” It was warm and comfortable and we enjoyed out stay in an area we had not visited before. For anyone looking for a get away from it all break it would be hard to find anywhere more secluded. We our spent time walking and watching the birds at Duncansby and Dunnet Heads' as well as visiting secluded beaches and touring the area in general. The coastline in this area is spectacular and we were lucky with the weather. - Mr Haynes, May 2018 “Relaxing cosy cottage” Great holiday cottage very quiet and relaxing.

Occupying a slightly elevated position and approached by a long private driveway this pretty stone cottage has amazing far-reaching views and is situated near the village of Castletown. A real 'get away from it all' location ensuring privacy, peace and relaxation. This cottage would be ideal for a couple, a family group or group of friends who want to spend time together enjoying the natural unspoilt beauty of Caithness. Retaining its original flagstone floors this deceptively spacious cottage has a cosy sitting/dining room where guests can relax in comfort and the well-equipped kitchen is ideal for preparing tasty meals. There are two bedrooms, a double and a twin room and a spacious shower room, everything you need! The large surrounding garden is neat and well maintained and strategically placed benches ensure that visitors can enjoy the best of the sunshine as it moves around the cottage. There is a large storage shed to the rear of the cottage where cycles, rods and other equipment can safely be left. The area is indeed wonderful for both walkers and cyclists as the long straight quiet single track roads are ideal and the views are ever changing with the different weather patterns. Wildlife spotters will be very happy here so a good pair of binoculars and a camera are very important! The busy towns of both Thurso and Wick are close by and offer excellent shopping opportunities and of course famous John O'Groats, a further 16 miles north, has to be visited! This is a special remote cottage in a truly scenic location and will be enjoyed by all. Accommodation All ground floor. Two bedrooms: 1 x double, 1 x twin. Shower room with shower, basin and WC.

Calculate your drive time Submit About the location CASTLETOWN Thurso 5.3 miles; John O'Groats 14.2 miles. Castletown lies close to the north coast of the Highlands of Scotland, five miles from Thurso and features buildings made mostly from the local stone. With a hotel, grocery and butchers the village can cater for all your needs and if you feel like a night off from cooking you can visit the fish and chip shop on your way home. The village’s past can be discovered at the Flagstone Heritage Trail and the Castlehill Heritage Centre. Nearby Thurso is the most northerly town in mainland Scotland and also boasts the country's most northerly railway station! From here guests can take a ferry across to Orkney, leaving from Scrabster harbour just to the west of the town. Orkney is a great place to visit and the ferry crosses regularly throughout the year. If you take your car then remember to book first! Thurso benefits from a pretty seafront location and from here you can see the remains of Thurso Castle. The Caithness Horizons museum is housed in the old Town Hall and is certainly well worth a visit. The newer part of the town benefits from wide streets with Sir John's Square at the centre. 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.
