Toftingall Farm Cottages

Situated in the idyllic countryside of the Scottish Highlands hamlet of Watten is this charming duo of cottages, Toftingall Farm Cottages. Enjoying superb countryside surroundings and the appeal of the owner's own very large working farm, the cottages provide a wonderful escape to a scenic area at any time of year. The cottages rest one mile apart, making them fantastic for multi-generational families or a group of friends, allowing both privacy and unity for a wonderful self-catered break. The immediate area is perfectly suited for walking and cycling, while further activities including horse riding and climbing, can be found within easy reach of the farm. There are many charming villages and hamlets in the area, such as Halkirk, as well as coastal areas and slightly more built-up towns where you can stock up on essentials or dine out should you want a break from cooking, such as Thurso. Take advantage of the stunning landscapes in the area and venture a little further to the coast. Whaligoe Steps makes a lovely day of walking in the fresh sea air, while Ulbster Alpaca Trekking is a unique experience not to be missed. History buffs can spend a day discovering Cairn of Get, or an afternoon at the Dunbeath Heritage Museum. Savour the sea views and varying terrains of Nybster Broch, or head north from the cottages and visit the grand Duncansby Head Lighthouse and stroll around the Castle & Gardens of Mey. Whether you tour the area or unwind with your loved ones, Toftingall Farm Cottages is the perfect choice for a break in the picture-perfect Scottish Highlands.

Note: This property has a Good Housekeeping bond of £250.

Wick 8 miles; Thurso 12.5 miles.

Watten is a small hamlet situated in the far north of Scotland in the Caithness area. It is an area of wide open spaces with small single track roads leading from village to village. Watten is situated between the busy towns of Thurso and Wick and is famous for its large loch which boasts an abundance of brown trout and permits can be obtained locally during the fishing season. The small village itself has a busy local pub/restaurant aptly named 'The Brown Trout' and a Post Office. The area is ideal for walkers, cyclists and wildlife watchers and its close proximity to Wick is ideal for shopping and dining out.
