4th comment: Super quiet location with wonderful views in a nice part of Scotland. Is a long way up north but worth the trip. House was ideal, big rooms, nice finishes, wi fi. We never even used the games room. Village an easy walk away and Wick is only 5 miles. lots of places to visit and see in the area and Orkney ferry just 20 minutes away. July 2011.

11th Comment Large, spacious, clean & modern. June 2010.

12th Comment The situation of the house was amazing, even though the weather was not good, to sit in the lounge and watch the sea and and the birds was great. We had our dog with us and he loved it. The large garden was completely safe when the gates were closed. The interior of the house was excellent, very well equipped even down to food and water dishes for the dog. We got a call from the owner a week before our visit and she was very friendly and told us everything we needed to know. We would definitley recommend this property for young families and older ones like us. June 2010.

13th Comment The cottage was well equipped and in a superb coastal location. Perfect for families or a group of friends, there is plenty to do with the beach at the bottom of the garden and amazing wildlife on the doorstep (almost literally), and on rainy days there is the pool room plus books and games in the cupboard. May 2010.

14th Comment Very well thought out and well equipped property. March 2010.
