What our customers are saying about our Holiday Cottages In Caithness Shire To Rent.

"S22882 was a good, family-friendly and simple base for our family of six (plus our dog) to explore the north of Scotland. The cottage was clean & tidy upon arrival and everything worked correctly. Whilst some of the decor is a bit dated, we believe this is reflected in the cost. Overall, we felt the cottage represented good value for money.The cottage used to be a stable for the disused mill in the same grounds, which is full of history and very interesting to read about. Also next to this property is a bridge that was built by viking settlers around 1,000 years ago. A stoney beach is a short walk away, just follow the stream behind the property down to the sea.Duncansby Head offers stunning views of the famous sea stacks and plenty of opportunities for birdwatching, as does nearby Dunnet Head. We saw fulmars, kittiwakes, herring gulls, guillemots, razorbills, oystercatchers and shags during our time there. A good number of common seals have made Gills Bay harbour their home, in case you initially struggle to find them (as we did). Puffin Croft (the petting zoo) in JoG is small but excellent, our children loved it.We took the ferry out to Orkney to visit the Italian Chapel, the Standing Stones of Stenness, the Ring of Brodgar and Skara Brae, as this was easy to do being so close to the Gills Bay - St Margarets Hope ferry. This was a great day out and we really recommend making the effort to go.Only basic food items are available in John o' Groats itself, but major supermarkets can be found in Thurso and Wick which are not very far away.The owner would have appreciated better communication from us and better accuracy as regards arrival time, so this is worth keeping in mind when you make arrangements for key collection.Our only feedback is to try to address the temperature inside the property. Old wall-mounted electric heaters provide warmth and are effective, but cannot be left on overnight for safety reasons, so the temperature inside the property drops considerably (I should point out the temperature outside was between 0 - 4 degrees throughout our stay). A draught excluder for the front door could be a quick-win.People staying at this cottage during a cold time of year should take extra blankets, be prepared to sleep in their clothes and make full use of the 3 x hot water bottles that are provided. I wouldn't expect this to be an issue during summer months and we would stay again at a warmer time of year."

"We had a fantastic week at 'S22899' and wished we could have spent longer there! The location was very peaceful and relaxing though conveniently near to shops and amenities for supplies when required. The view across the bay from the sun-lounge was spectacular, binoculars were thoughtfully provided for us to see a variety of wildlife including many species of birds and even a seal!The cottage was immaculate and beautifully organised, with an ' in case you forgot' container as a handy standby, a welcome basket and a tray of home-baked cakes. The rooms were very clean and tidy with perfect attention to detail. The owner arrived to say hello on our first day and offered to give assistance if we needed any during our stay. This was not our first visit to the area as we were visiting relatives in nearby Lybster, but we noticed that there was plenty of literature for those new to the area with local maps for walkers and cyclists. The cottage had plentiful supplies of hot water, heating and reliable Wi-Fi; all very important factors to contribute to an enjoyable holiday experience. Thank you for making this an excellent break for us."

"We have not been further north than Innverness and decided to give the far north a try. We really like remote rural locations and this cottage gives you the feeling that your miles from civilisation, however local shops and amenities are all within a short drive. The cottage itself is very clean and well equipped despite being remote. There are plenty of good walks nearby which our two Greyhounds loved and the beach at Reiss is well worth a visit with acres of lovely white sand and crystal clear sea. We went in March so the weather was a bit unpredictable with bright sunshine at the start of the week followed by sleet and strong winds later on, but this didn’t detract from the holiday and if anything made it more enjoyable. The owner was really friendly and helpful even though she doesn’t live nearby, the phone call to check that we’d arrived safely made us feel very welcome. All said we would highly recommend this cottage and having been to quite a few over the years can comfortably say that this is o e of the better ones, you will not be disappointed. March 2012."

"If you are looking for a holiday rental with all mod cons then this property won't be for you. If you like quirky and quaint S22883 has it all. It was possibly the servants 'wing of a large country house at one time and still has lots of period features. We loved the location - it is very secluded and we had the courtyard to ourselves as the Ivy Wing was not occupied. It had a large bath which was great for a soak. Perhaps if you are less mobile this might be a problem as it is high to step into.There was no mobile phone signal but the WiFi worked well so we could use WhatsApp. Louise -the owner- gave us some beautiful flowers from her garden along with a lovely bottle of wine and some tablet. It was an ideal spot to tour around the North Highlands - we had a great week."

"We had a great stay at S22896. The location was perfect, isolated but within a five minute drive to Wick where there are plenty shops, Tesco etc. Fantastic views from the cottage, the photos don't do it justice. Lovely big garden. Inside the cottage was perfect, everything you could possibly need was provided, fuel for the fire, bin bags, toilet roll etc. Well equipped kitchen and the view of the sea while you sit and eat was brilliant. A 15 minute stroll down the road and you can visit the ruins of Sinclair Castle. A 10-15 minute drive away is Reiss beach which was fantastic for walking the dog, pretty much had the whole beach to ourselves and you can walk for miles along it all the way to Keiss. Had a brilliant stay and would definitely return."
