Rural setting

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.

10th comment: The cottage was perfect and the caretaker most helpful. April 2009.

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
