  • We booked a stay for my parents and Angela couldn’t have been more helpful. My parents also said Angela couldn’t have been more obliging or done enough to help - an outstanding host!

    Sarah2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • This is a perfect place to stay if you are touring the North. It sits on top of a beautiful hill overlooking the bay. The house itself is clean and comfortable. Perfect for two!

    Rob2020-01-18T00:00:00Z
  • The Wee Hoosie is a lovely little stay, a really modern tiny get away.

    Brittany2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Angela was an exceptionally open and welcoming host, and it was a pleasure to stay in her wee hoosie. The space was well presented, very clean and tidy, and exactly what it said in the description. The breakfast bag was a nice touch as it is quite far from the shops for someone used to city living, so that came in very useful. The space itself was cosy and neat, decent amenities, and heated up very fast which was great for a December visit! All in all, a lovely place to stay on a weekend break!

    Tallulah2019-12-28T00:00:00Z
  • Angela went above and beyond to make my trip and stay as comfortable as possible. Will definitely be back again! Room was perfect and has everything you would need to eat sleep, clean and cook.

    Jack2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place to stay. Quiet spot, well furnished, friendly host and amazing how well such a small place works!

    Robert2019-12-18T00:00:00Z
  • She goes the extra mile to ensure you arrive at the right place, it is very clean, everything was thought of before we arrived. Although not in a main town or village the location is great with wonderful views for miles and miles.

    Welcome to my comfy Thurso pad. Just unlock the door, and you're home! Perfect for two, with luxury kingsize bed (that splits to two singles), kitchen alcove, washer, wifi, TV and bright shower room. Great for your night or 7 in the Far North. Just a short stroll away from takeaways and restaurants; and supermarkets too – create a tasty stovetop feast to enjoy in front of the telly. And relax.
    The king bed splits to two 2 foot 6 inch singles - for two friends to share the room without getting on top of each other ! Here are some more some do's and don'ts to consider before you decide to book, starting with the do's first: Do book if: - You like the idea of an ensuite hotel room without the hotel bit, and with the privacy and freedom to cook, and do your laundry when you want to. - You are travelling light - maybe in a wee sprightly car - and need to wash, iron and wear again your small cases of nice clothes before dining out in style. - You are up to 2 cyclists. it is just (underlined just) possible to bring a maximum of 2 bicycles into the apartment. It's a tight squeeze round the front door; you'll need to take off your panniers on the street to get your bikes through the door. - You have outdoor gear you need to stack up in the vestibule, and want to hang up such as wetsuits, rucksacks and the rest to drip and dry there.
    Perfect for enjoying Thurso Town Centre.
  • A good central location, comfortable bed, warm and cozy, great host

  • Jon is a great host who really took the time to show me round the place and tell me everything I needed to know. He also made sure to leave lots of information about the area including a map with locations of grocery stores and everything I needed to know. The place itself is cosy and neat, and I really enjoyed my stay there. Would definitely visit again.

  • Jon's place is perfectly located to get around town, and a great, cozy space to base yourself in to explore Caithness. The check-in process was flawless, and Jon has amazing tips for anyone who needs them! Thanks for a great stay!

    Christopher2020-01-08T00:00:00Z
  • Jon's flat was perfect for a short break and we had a great stay there this weekend. The unit is entirely self contained, very clean and cosy and has just what you need for a few nights in Thurso. Jon met us with a warm welcome and gave us a thorough introduction to the space before leaving us to our own devices, and was only a message and a few doors away if we needed anything. As we're familiar with the area we didn't require any the tips about the local amenities but everything was well provided for and I'd recommend this host and flat to anyone visiting Thurso or Caithness in future. Thanks Jon!

Close to everything you need. I was without transport so this place is ideal if you need to walk around. I had a blast, and 5 stars for the accomodation from me.

The location of the house was also very convenient! The house itself was sparkling clean, spacious and filled with little thoughtful touches. A really great place to stay in and definitely would recommend anyone else to stay there!

The view is such an incredible beauty and we were welcomed very warmly with a personal note, whisky and sweets. Don't miss to stay with them!

  • Amazing view, which can be with stars you can see from the bed before you sleep and meet fantastic mist morning, depends on weather of course, together with great hospitality Kathy and Tim can make great start for your NC500 journey, which was for me!

    Sergei2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing. It’s everything advertised and more. Beautiful home and the views are amazing. Even visited with some coos this morning. Perfect place. Wish I could have stayed longer.

    Martha2019-10-11T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place to stay. There is a wonderful “Kim Kardashian” shower to enjoy!

    Angela2019-10-05T00:00:00Z
  • Very stylish architect-designed house, a modern interpretation of the traditional crofting blackhouse, though timber clad. Spectacular views over the bay to Dunnet Head on a clear day (I imagine, as we had “Scotch Mist” for the whole stay, only lifted on our departure. That’s Scottish weather!). Such friendly hosts, made the stay a delight. They provided a bottle of local single malt in the apartment which is a self contained bedroom and luxurious bathroom. Parking on driveway. A superb and unusual stay, highly recommended.

    Malcolm2019-09-25T00:00:00Z
  • Very stylish, luxurious accommodation provided by a very warm and welcoming host.

    Moya2019-09-24T00:00:00Z
  • It is a wonderful place to stay. Very unique.

    Ine2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • Our time with Kathy was wonderful! The accommodation is modern and lovely furnished...We immediately felt at home. The large window is impressive. From here you can look directly from your bed at the landscape and (if you are lucky) enjoy the starry sky. The nicest thing about our stay was the conversations with Kathy. She is incredibly helpful and courteous. Kathy is always open for a nice chat, but leaves you enough privacy. We would come back at any time and hope for an opportunity to visit Kathy again. It was a pleasure to be her guest!

It had everything we could ask for and more, the little touches were lovely and we really appreciated the ring binder with all the helpful information. The place was a perfect mix of private/off the beaten track but still near enough a bigger town with everything we needed. Absolutely perfect week and would love to stay here again!

    David2019-10-25T00:00:00Z

  • My partner and I had a wonderful time staying in The Stable. It was so well equipped for a self-catering holiday and in a great location which was within close proximity of a number of places of interest whilst also being secluded. The lodge is beautifully decorated and feels very spacious, and we also loved having the hot tub as well! The amenities were great and Fiona was a great host. We would highly recommend this lodge and we hope to return in the future.

    Emma2019-09-27T00:00:00Z
  • A beautiful, extremely clean, comfortable, warm and cosy pod! Amazing hot tub with beautiful views, Fiona was great to respond and husband met us shortly after arrival to make sure we were ok and show us the hot tub. BBQ was great! Shower was very powerful, and the kitchen had everything we needed to cook! The bed was extremely comfortable and nice and big too! We couldn’t ask for anything more apart from possibly staying for longer! Best stay of our honeymoon so far! We look forward to another stay in the future!

    Victoria2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • The cottage is simply amazing! We especially enjoyed the loneliness, the calmness and the moments inside the Hot Tub. We can totally recommend the stay for everyone who comes up north.

    Jean-Paul2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • We had the most amazing weekend at The Stable! The pods are in the most beautiful location. They have amazing views and it’s so peaceful! The pod was so warm and extremely clean when we arrived. The hot tub was also amazing and it’s great having your own private area. Couldn’t fault the pod and can’t wait to come back again!

She offers a sweet little breakfast (slices of bread, butter, cheese, crossaints, chocolate bars, tea, coffee), she gives great recommendations for places to visit. She is such a lovely person. I stayed for only one night though but I felt super comfortable right away. Would definitely recommend her.

Meg has prepared a variety of breakfasts in the small fridge in the room, and there is also a kettle to boil water. In short, very satisfied with the accommodation.

    Fang2019-09-08T00:00:00Z
  • Meg was a great host and has a nice place it situated by the sea, and very comfortable bed.

    Paul2019-08-05T00:00:00Z
  • I had a really relaxing & enjoyable three day stay at Meg's place, right on the sea front & looking out to Dunnet Head & across to Orkney. She is a friendly, hospitable & helpful host who will willingly give you local information whilst never being intrusive. The setting is quiet & peaceful & only a few minutes walk from Thurso town centre. The room (& shower room/toilet) were spotlessly clean & well-appointed, & everything (& more) that I needed for my visit had already been provided. Breakfast is continental-style and varied, ample & conveniently to hand in the room (there is a mini-fridge, kettle, crockery), which had been thoughtfully equipped with everything you might need). The 4G mobile signal is good & very stable (Wi-fi is also available, I think). You can come & go as you please &, since the room is lockable, security isn't a problem. I can unreservedly recommend a mini-break or stopover in Meg's house.

    A family home that was ran as a traditional B and B for over 20 years by Jean, a recent refit for Airbnb . Set on the Beach Front on the Northcoast 500 route.
    A family home now run as an air B & B with a warm welcome from these mother and daughter hosts. Double bed room with a private Bathroom right next door to room, total privacy as you are the only guests upstairs. Situated on the beach front with private off road parking and secure cycle storage, easy to find on the Northcoast 500 route with good restaurants and lovely walks nearby, boasting all the amenities you are likely to need. Both rooms have a mini fridge plus tea and coffee facilities. Stay a little longer and we will be happy to help with laundry and are flexible with arrival and departure time other guests permitting. A warm and cosy shelter for all your needs in the Far North by the wild seas…. We look forward to welcoming you. Jane and Jean. Sorry no children under 14.
    We are situated at the Beach Front with spectacular views of Scrabster, Orkney Islands and Dunnet Head (the most northerly point on the UK mainland). We have an amazing coastal walk which will take you to Scrabster (Ferry to Orkney) a good two hour return walk but worth while if you appreciate good views. We are a 2 minute walk from Thurso town centre, where you will find shops, restaurants and bars. 19 miles from John O’Groats.
  • Thank you Jean and Jane for the very warm welcome.

    Mary2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • A nice upstairs double room overlooking the beach with easy parking and 5 mins walk to the centre of Thurso

    David2019-10-09T00:00:00Z
  • A great location with a wonderful view and easy access to town. This is a great place to stay particularly if you are catching the ferry to Orkney from Scrabster. The room was clean and comfortable and Jean and Jane provided a good continental /take away breakfast.

    Trevor2019-09-23T00:00:00Z
  • Easy to find with parking right out front. Nice friendly welcome from Jean and Jane. Lots of info re local places to visit /eat etc. The room was sparkling clean with a glorious view from the window. No TV in the room, but who wants to watch TV with a view like that? There was a small sink in the room, but use of a separate shower/toilet. We were the only guests for the night that we stayed so not a problem for us, but may be worth a check with the owner before you book if you want an ensuite.... No idea what the other rooms were like. I would definitely recommend this place.

    Arthur2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • The pictures of Jeans place didn’t do it justice. Her place had a certain charm which doesn’t translate to pictures in my mind. Maybe it is the fact that from the bedroom window we could see the Orkney Islands(it was clear that day but not the next morning).We were met by Jean when we arrived and she promptly gave us a tour of where we would be staying. She showed us both rooms and how everything was operated. Jean pointed out the coffee, tea and other goodies she had waiting for us. She asked what our plans were for the rest of the day and offered tips to enhance our experience which we took and they worked out perfectly. We loved the space at Jeans and would definitely stay there again. Before we left we explored the town a bit and that is a treat for the adventurous as well.

    Neal2019-09-19T00:00:00Z

  • This is a wonderful place! The location and views truly are breathtaking and the room and bathroom are very nice, I found that the pictures in the listing don't do the rooms justice. I met both women and they were very sweet and offered me a warm welcome and farewell. Hope to come here again one day when I can stay a wee while longer. 💙🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

  • Lovely spacious flat with two comfortable double beds. The flat was well kitted out with amenities and was sparkling clean. The location was great, close to town and Thurso east. Lynsey was always quick to reply and had kindly provided tea/coffee/shampoo etc, which although small gestures are often missed by most Airbnb’s. I would definitely recommend staying here if you’re looking for a nice relaxing break. Thanks again, Lynsey.

The cottage has absolutely everything you need and we enjoyed a fantastic, cozy and romantic Christmas. The night sky is incredible, if you are lucky you can catch the northern lights as well as the milky way and shooting stars. Highly recommended.

Thank you for the goodies, the fresh orange juice and the conversations and tips ! It is also the perfect location with its spectacular view of Dunnet Head, and Castle Mey.

    Phillip2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • This was an all-round great experience, litually in every way. The breakfast was made so cute and we really got the feeling of a short-term home. The room, as well as the bathroom, only for us, were tidy clean, there is a chill lounge with TV, but cause of the amazing beautiful view you really wanted to stare out the window instead. A sooo cute dog will catch your attention every time you pass by and will let you fell happy. I can just recommend this to everyone getting in this area!

  • The room at Jacqueline’s home is amazing! You literally hear the waves at night (and just close the window if you prefer quieter). Jacqueline is very kind, I wish I had a bit more time in town, I only stayed a night. Aa a great bonus, in the morning, Jacqueline was kind enough to give me a lift to help me catch my ferry on time.

    Levent2020-01-19T00:00:00Z

    Flagstone Cottages consists of two lovingly combined traditional labourers' cottages, dating from the mid nineteenth century. The Prince's Regeneration Trust took on the buildings as an exemplar project in 2011, & have spared no expense in restoring the original Caithness flagstone flooring, the slate roof, & the sash & case timber windows. Inside, the original box bed, fireplace and cupboards have all been returned to their former glory to present an interior that is of the highest quality.
    The cottage was opened by the Duke of Rothesay in 2012, recorded by a commemorative stone at the property. This property would be ideal for anyone who appreciates high quality interiors and has a sympathy for heritage structures. Flagstone Cottages in the news... BBC Report on Restoration 27th July 2012 https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-highlands-islands-18998111 BBC Report on Official Opening 7th March 2012 https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-highlands-islands-17286394 Featured in the Guardian’s top 10 Highland Hideaways, Nov 2013: https://www.theguardian.com/travel/2013/nov/28/scottish-highlands-hideaways-holidays
    Walking distance to Dunnett Bay beach. Only 8 miles to Castle of Mey, and 15 miles to John O’Groats. Fantastic opportunities to see Orcas, Dolphins, Puffins, and the Aurora Borealis.
  • Flagstone Cottage is an absolute gem in the rough; such a beautiful home with all original features, beautifully restored. David is a great host, good communication and local tips. We weren’t too keen on the area itself, appreciate things can seem more bleak in February though, but it was sad to see a lot of abandoned buildings that clearly once been very beautiful (particularly castle hill). As we live in Cornwall, we had to give John o Groats a visit and then on to Duncansbury head which was well worth the blustery walk.

    Poppy2020-03-01T00:00:00Z
  • Had the most wonderful time staying here. It was just what I needed! It had great amenities and it was super convenient having a little corner shop down the road. The house is super cosy and comfortable with a pretty cool box bed! I was able to use the buses to get to Thurso and John o groats pretty easily. I noticed there are some maps of the surrounding areas at the front door which is super handy. The heating was absolutely perfect for me, there is a wood burner but I didn’t get round to using it. Castletown itself is a little quiet but that was perfect for me as I was needing to escape the Hustle and bustle of city life. Would definitely recommend this place and I’m pretty sure I’ll be coming back again!

  • We had the best time at the cottage: it's incredibly cosy and comfortable. A short walk away, Dunnet Bay is beautiful and we managed to squeeze in a day trip to Orkney and some excellent coastal stomps. Can't recommend highly enough.

    Kate2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • We spent Christmas with our two dogs in the cottage and it was perfect, couldn't have asked for more. I only wish we had booked a longer stay! It is so cosy and has everything you could need. Particularly loved the box bed, haven't slept so well in a long time! The area is stunning, there are many beautiful places to walk and on a clear night the stars were breathtaking. The only slight disappointment was the pub as there only seemed to be a small back room for the public - which was empty and not very inviting. If you like proper pubs don't bother, the cottage is a much cosier place to enjoy a drink by the fire if you get some good local beers in! Communication with David was great and he quickly answered any queries we had. Would highly recommend.

Good location for popping through to Thurso, also did a day tour to orkney from john o groats which is less than half hour drive to ferry. Would definitely recommend flagstone cottage as a good base to explore the North!

  • Isobel was a great hostess, she welcomed us warmly and has a great sense of humor. She had great tips for eating out (ynot !!!) and for our further trip - worth seeing is Latheronwheel Harbor (over the bridge a footpath leads to the mountain). The room is a good size and can accommodate 3 people (1 double bed and 1 single bed). The decor was great. We would definitely book again at Isobel! Thank you, Isobel! :-)

    Catriona2019-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent little cottages.

    Jake2019-04-15T00:00:00Z
  • Gina's cottage is lovely - a real place away from the world, but also just 5 minutes away from Thurso and everything you could need. We throughly enjoyed making a fire for ourselves each day, before settling in a pleasant days exploring. The views in the evening from nearby have to be seen. Highly recommended for anyone looking for some time away.

    Luke2019-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • We had fantastic week in Gina's cottage. We loved the wood burners - thank you Gina for providing lots of wood and coal, we also loved the cows for neighbours (the only neighbours in fact ). We highly recommend this amazing cottage. Gina is a great host. Don't think twice, just book it! You won't regret it.

    Alexandra2018-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • A restored farm cottage situated on the inland road leading into Thurso town. Lovely surrounds and great sunsets. Perfectly located for exploring this part of Scotland.

    Brent2018-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • Gina is a fantastic host and was there to welcome us to the property, even though we were late due to a road accident. Gina also made sure that we had everything we needed. The cottage is delightful, with two wonderful fuel burners and was well equipped for our stay. It’s a great base for sightseeing in the area. We would definitely come back again!

    Caithness View Luxury Farm Lodges are situated on our family’s farm, Barrock Mains, in the most Northerly County on the Scottish mainland! With acres of lovely, south facing farmland for you to explore, these beautiful brand new deluxe lodges offer far reaching views which some say are the best in the County! The lodges are only a 10 minute drive from John O'Groats and 5 miles away from the NC500 route and the coast. The main towns of Wick and Thurso are only a 20 minute drive away. The lodges allow visitors to enjoy an authentic experience of the ‘great outdoors’ and ‘getting back to nature’ with the added luxury of very comfy beds and soft furnishings. The beautiful vaulted ceilings in each spacious lodge sets them apart from the rest. Our lodges sleeps up to 6 people and include a shower room, kitchen area, open plan living area with a sofa bed, a double bed and a further separate twin bedroom. All bedding and towels are supplied and included in the daily rate. The lodges also have private BBQ huts so you can “eat out” and enjoy a tasty meal using locally sourced, high quality produce if you wish to. Barrock Mains is a working farm and there’s always plenty to observe from shearing the sheep in June to ploughing the fields in the winter. There are also many wonderful walks to enjoy. An hour’s walk from the lodges, heading west, brings you to Oalston House. The views here are inspirational and only the sound of the Lapwing (Shochadh) and Curlew can be heard. Whichever season you choose to visit, Caithness View gives visitors the opportunity to experience a simpler way of life, which can be shared with friends and family, and to explore the wonderful county of Caithness and all it has to offer.
  • We loved our time at Swallow's Lodge which we used as our base for a number of day trips around the North. It was perfectly located to visit John O Groats, Thurso and further west to Smoo Cave. Sharon was the perfect host and helped provide clear instructions and research into some of the activities and locations we planned to visit. She really went the extra mile and it was greatly appreciated. The lodge itself was perfectly styled and had everything we needed for our stay. The BBQ hut was a nice addition we sadly didn't get to use, but the kitchen was great for preparing meals between outings. The beds were super comfy and the peace and quite made for a very relaxing stay. Loved the little fire place to stay cozy at night and the views from the balcony were fantastic. Would love to stay again but next time for longer.

    Craig2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Very good

    David2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Easy to find with the very clear instructions Sharon gave us, great communication & just overall amazing hosts. I left my battery pack in the lodge as we left & it was no problem at all for me to return & collect it. The layout was great, waking up to countryside views & sheep just metres away was beautiful. When we stayed we were the only booking so it was so lovely & peaceful, they really have done a great job with all aspects of the lodge. Would recommend to anyone looking for a place to stay in the area that wants some calm, peace & coziness.

    Ellie2019-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • If you are looking for a place for some quality downtime and for some peace then this is the place for you. With supermarkets a mere 15 minutes away you can stock up on necessities that you can use in the BBQ hut or in the lodge itself. The lodge is 20 minutes from John o’Groats which is a must visit. The lodge is so beautifully built and decorated, with windows over looking the vast farm and the night sky. Your nights will be staring at the night sky with tons of stars and your mornings will be waking up to sheep grazing quietly and greenery that stretches all around. Steven was an amazing host besides being accommodating, he entertained us with his jokes and stories, gave us tips on what to see and do and even offered to take us out to his farm for a taste of what it’s like to handle the daily chores with the animals. Communicating with Sharon was a breeze and she helped us find the lodge with no trouble at all. We didn’t feel like leaving and wished we stayed for longer.

    Arlene2019-10-24T00:00:00Z
  • The lodge was very cute and really spacious. Great facilities and lovely views out over the sheep fields. It was very quiet. There are only two lodges there and we were the only lodge booked so it was pure isolation. Would highly recommend and would be great for a family as it has a separate room with the extra beds in and they even provided badminton racquets. A lovely finishing touch.

    Emilia2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • With this Airbnb being new and not very many reviews it was a little worrisome, but from the beginning the host was very responsive to my questions. When we arrived we were greeted by the owner and felt very welcomed. The property is so inviting and very clean. The kitchen is very well stocked with everything you will need to make a nice meal. And the bbq huts are such an nice touch. Lots of parking. The beds are comfortable and the bathroom is spacious enough for a place this size. The location is very central to many sites. John O’Groats is a short drive as is Thurso. I will miss waking up to sheep grazing right outside the window. I would love the opportunity to come back for another stay!

We have an amazing coastal walk which will take you to Scrabster (Ferry to Orkney) a good two hour return walk but worth while if you appreciate good views. We are a 2 minute walk from Thurso town centre, where you will find shops, restaurants and bars. 19 miles from John O’Groats.
  • We had a lovely stay at Jean's place with a magnificent view of the sea and so close to town. A great base to get to the Orkneys as only half an hour's drive to John O'Groats. Thank you so much Jean and Jane for your hospitality.

    Pam2019-08-31T00:00:00Z

Maximum of 4 guests Wifi and Smart TV. Fast fibre broadband (Actual download speed 36.29 Mps, Upload 8.55Mps) Shed available. Dog Friendly. Parking for two cars Scott and Anne
    It is a great location for exploring the local area and you can expect to see flocks of starlings in the back garden, the local horse in the top field and plenty of sheep and cows all around. The corner aspect of the small housing area of Westfield also affords a wide view of the ever changing Caithness sky.
    We think Thurso and Caithness has a lot to offer visitors and will provide up to date local information so that you can make the most of your stay. Including maps and suggestions of local walks and information about fishing. Loch Calder is very close by and fishing suggestions can be found here. (URL HIDDEN)
  • Excellent place. Very clean. Such beautiful views across the countryside could sit there all day.

    Florence2019-09-21T00:00:00Z
  • I stayed with my family at Scott’s place for two nights and it was outstanding. It’s a 10 minute drive away from Thurso, in a quite and peaceful area, in the middle of farmland. The place itself was well equipped and had all the essentials. We had a very small problem with the WiFi, and Scott was kind enough to get his mum (within an hour) to come and have a look at it, which was great! That was a very sweet of him. He was very quick to respond and he gave us a lot of different recommendations of things to do. Would highly recommend staying at his!

    Aparna2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • Better than expected! Very spacious with a full dining table, kitchen and living room. House is clean and shower was nice. The location was a bit out of Thurso but it was no issue with a car. Parking was private right next to the house. Beautiful area for a quiet walk too!

    Jeremy2019-08-12T00:00:00Z
  • This place was our "home base" for 2 nights, during our family trip around Scotland, while exploring Orkney and Thurso area. Scott was communicative, friendly and helpful and the place was spacious and clean. It is just some 10min drive from Thurso and we found this quiet farmland location charming, a part of our authentic Scottish experience. All the important amenities are there, including washer/dryer, and parking comfortable and safe. All in all, we had a positive experience and i can recommend this place to anyone.

    Martin2019-08-06T00:00:00Z
  • Scott's place is amazing, very relaxing and it has everything you need almost from the moment you walk through the door - much to our surprise especially compared to other places we have stayed at. Clear and useful instructions were easy to find so nothing was an issue. The area itself was lovely - very quiet but perfect for what we were looking for. The location was also perfect as we explored both coasts and found loads of interesting thing to do and see. Scott's mum, Ann, was lovely too and really helpful. Thanks you for a fabulous home and stay.

    Janet2019-08-02T00:00:00Z
  • The house is located in a quiet and friendly rural community. Everything has a comfy homey feel and is very clean, with personal welcoming touches such as fresh cut flowers. I would stay here again without hesitation.

  • Amazing cabins with unreal views from the hot tub. Highly recommend!!

    Jonathan2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • We had 3 nights at the Burrows with our dogs, we found that it was in a perfect location for exploring the North Coast. Close to the amenities in Thurso. The burrow is one of 6 beautifully decorated and thought out pods, with the hot tub being a fantastic extra! We loved our stay, thank you!

    Samuel2019-09-19T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely place, very cute setting and a great getaway. For out of country guests just a tip in the spring/summer to bring a sleep mask. Did not know the sun would basically be up 20+ hours and was not prepared for the daylight constantly!

    Katlyn2019-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • Wow ! What an amazing stay we had! I couldn’t recommend this enough to anyone looking for a relaxing weekend away! I loved every minute & would stay for longer next time.

    Rebekah2019-05-20T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing stay! Spacious pod with the most amazing view, especially from the hot tub. We went for a surf lesson at Dunnet beach which only 10 mins drive. We will definitely be back! Wish we could have stayed longer.

    Lucy2019-05-18T00:00:00Z
