  • "Excellent location for exploring the far north of Scotland, wonderful walks on the doorstep, with amazing beaches nearby; we spent 2 weeks here and would happily return."

    Property was fantastic for two of us, would be great for up to 4 (maybe 5) people. Easy to control effective central heating (needed on cooler windy June days), with an excellent electric shower in the downstairs wet room. Property very clean on arrival, and well equipped, we used oven, toaster, kettle, microwave, washing machine, and wifi, and all worked well. There is a slightly uneven 500m track to the house, but driven carefully our small car (with almost no ground clearance) made it fine. A few minor upgrades would makes this house perfect; pans a little tired and could do with a refresh; glasses a bit limited (we bought 4 and left them behind for the next visitors); in the almost-never-dark midsummer I'd have preferred blackout blinds or curtains upstairs. Nearby Borgie Lodge does good evening meals (book ahead); for coffee, visit the roadside cafe hut Coastal Coffee and Treats just beyond Bettyhill on NC500 towards Thurso. The nearby general store at Bettyhill (15 mins drive) has all the basics + fuel, but for a larger supermarket you'll need to drive for over an hour to Thurso (Co-op and Tesco) or Wick (Aldi, Co-op, Tesco Superstore). Many local roads (including A roads) are single track with passing places so getting places takes longer but views are amazing.

  • "Unfortunately the property was poorly cleaned on arrival and despite the owner apologising there was no offer to have another clean carried out during our stay."

    We discovered the oven didn't work and despite reporting it received no response from the owner so therefore had to waste food that had been bought to be baked. There was a paltry selection of glasses - not even enough for three people never mind five! The clothes airer was broken. We had been sent details for the TV and heating but there were no instructions for anything else and no visitor information pack like we have had in every one of dozens of other properties we have stayed at. The location is amazing and we will be back to the area, but not to stay here.

Tongue 13 miles; Thurso 30 miles.

Bettyhill is a friendly highland village on the north coast some 13 miles from Tongue and 30 miles from Thurso, the main town serving this part of Scotland. The special attraction here is the stunning Torrisdale Bay situated to the west of Bettyhill which boasts a mile long beach of fabulous golden sands. The village has good facilities for locals and visitors such as a general store and a post office along with a museum and tourist information centre and a leisure centre with an indoor swimming pool, gym, Jacuzzi and sauna. The area has always been popular with fishermen who enjoy trout fishing in the lochs around the area and the wildlife and rugged landscape captivate visitors time and time again.
