    About this place

    Best bits

    • The unforgettable views are definitely a highlight. You can’t beat waking up to the expansive horizon, or watching the sunset over dramatic landscapes.
    • It’s an exceptional location. If you can draw yourself away from the views, there’s acres of beaches, countryside and coastline to explore.
    • In such a rural location, it’s impossible not to slow down and disengage from the stresses and speed of everyday life, and parenting!

    Top tips

    • Visit with other families and friends. There’s a great range of accommodation for grandparents, parents and friends to holiday together.
    • Don’t forget your wet and cold weather gear. The exposed coastal location can fall victim to quick weather changes.
    • For an extra fee, four-legged family members are invited to join in the fun at a selection of pet-friendly lodges.

    About the owners

    Owner recommendations

    • Exhilarating boat trips around the fascinating East Caithness coastline are highly recommended. Kids and adults will love spotting birds, sea life and bouncing across the waves.

    • Just west of John O’Groats, the Castle of Mey is worth a visit. The beautiful gardens and impressive, historical castle are open from May to September.

    • For older children and adults – trying your hand at clay pigeon shooting at Kaithness Clays is worth checking out. 

    • No trip to John O’Groats is complete without a fair few coastal walks. We recommend checking out the dramatic, rugged Duncansby ‘stacks’ and sea cliffs. 

    • Take in the Caithness countryside from a new perspective: horse riding tours for beginners through to experienced riders are available at Achalone Activities.
