The property

This well-presented, semi-detached cottage is conveniently located in the friendly village of Halkirk in the beautiful Northern Highlands.

Furnished to a good standard, this single-storey Halkirk cottage is an ideal retreat for a small family or group of friends who will appreciate the easy access to the stunning countryside just on their doorstep.

There are two bedrooms in this Highland cottage, a double and a spacious triple bunk room, plus a smart fitted kitchen/diner.

This Halkirk holiday home is very well equipped, and the stylish sitting room has a picture window looking out over open fields.

There is a small secluded garden at this cottage in Halkirk offering an excellent spot for some quiet reading or a morning coffee whilst planning the day's activities.

Halkirk has good local facilities with quality restaurants, a selection of shops and a golf course, and for fishermen, the River Thurso runs through the village, famous for its salmon fishing.

This Highland cottage is a great base for touring the remote north Highlands, and visiting towns such as Thurso, Wick and John O'Groats, the most northerly village on mainland Britain, just 25 miles away.

There is so much to see and do, so at the end of a busy day, return to this welcoming Halkirk cottage to relax and unwind.

Note: This property is next to Ref. 5326, and together they sleep 9.

About the location


Thurso 6 miles; Wick 16 miles; John O’Groats 25 miles.

Halkirk is a peaceful little village in Caithness, said to be the "first planned village in Scotland", surrounded by moorland and spectacular views and with excellent access both up North Sea and down to the Moray Coast. Halkirk offers a handful of amenities including small village pub, shop selling local produce and a hotel with restaurant. Halkirk is ideally placed for touring this remote and beautiful area of the Northern Highlands. It is also situated perfectly for a visit to John O'Groats, which is just 25 miles away and Durness, where Smoo Cave, Cape Wrath and the Durness Golf Course are well worth a visit. The daily ferry to Orkney is a 30 minute drive along the coast, and The Castle of Mey makes an interesting day out. With awe-inspiring views over the moorlands and glens, Halkirk is ideal for quiet retreat with walks and birdwatching. There are also several more amenities in Thurso just a short drive away.
