Enjoying lovely views across rolling fields towards the waters of Melvich Bay, this attractive and cosy, detached holiday cottage makes the perfect relaxing retreat.
Tastefully presented, it is equipped to a good standard. It has wood panelled walls throughout and a unique and interesting feature in the porch is the original mill stone set in the Caithness stone floor. There is also a locally commissioned sculpture set within an old millstone in the front garden.
Super location for touring this lovely unspoilt area - lots of beaches and rocky inlets to explore, mountain biking, fishing and sea trips are just some of the many activities available. A day trip to the Orkney Isles is highly recommended, or pay a visit to the 16th century Castle of Mey.

11th Comment A beautifully eclectic and relaxing property... just what we needed! March 2009.
12th Comment Photographs were good and a great indication of the property. Important to state that no TV, the low ceilings and narrow staircase where for us not a problem at all as we are young fit healthy and no disabilities. Lots of little touches made it feel like a lived in home. Small things like a bit of washing up liquid and a few toiletries and candles all made it feel homely immediately and it was really helpful on our first night to have the availability of some coal . Many thanks for a wonderful restful week. Feb 2009.
13th Comment Just excellent all round accommodation. Aug 2009.
14th Comment A beautiful cottage in a lovely location. The photos on the website don’t do it justice. Highly recommended, even in low season. March 2008
