    About this property

    The Gate Lodge is a traditional stone lodge house at the entrance to an historic country house which was once the seat of the Duke of Sutherland.
    This attractive, detached 19th-century cottage has been restored by the current owners of the country estate. The main living accommodation is on the ground floor, with high ceilings, deep-silled windows and wonderful views across to the sea, all the rooms are bright and welcoming. The fully fitted kitchen leads through to the pretty living room. There is an attractively presented dining room adjoining, and a small shower room off the main hall. An original staircase leads up to three generously proportioned bedrooms on the first floor, all enjoying views across to the sea or open countryside.
    The Gate Lodge is situated at the start of the ¾ mile private lane that leads up to the main country house. This beautiful tree lined approach lane is bounded by mature trees with a pretty burn and waterfalls meandering alongside. With an abundance of wild flowers, the occasional otter and numerous local deer, it is a lovely walk direct from the cottage. The owners run a small café and local craft business from the main house and visitors are welcome to wander in the 24 acres of grounds and enjoy the surrounding countryside. The immediate area is noted as an area of outstanding archaeological interest. Brochs, cairns and standing stones are all found in the locality.
    There are numerous places of interest and sporting activities in the area. The nearby village of Lybster has an interesting past, built at the height of the 19th-century herring boom. With its pretty harbour and beach it is well worth a visit. This coast has some of the most outstanding beaches to be found anywhere. Fishing, golf, horse riding, kayaking, sailing, mountain biking and wildlife watching are all enjoyed locally, and puffins, seals, dolphins and whales are seen around these coastal waters. Beach 2 miles. Shop, pub and restaurant 3 miles.

    "We had a great time at the gate lodge, prefect for us as we were visiting family couple mile away, the Forse of nature cafe in the main house was lovely and even did vegan food n cakes, the owners were very friendly and welcoming"

    "This was so lovely and cosy. Great base to come back to. Very well equipped. The kitchen was fab. The utility/mud room was a bonus with us having dogs. It gave us somewhere for them to be fed without us falling over their dishes! We loved the garden and surrounding wood land area. The reason I gave an 8 and not a 10 for comfort was the master bedroom bed. It seemed a little small. The cottage was actually better than we were expecting! The photo's on the website need up dating as the present ones really don't do it justice."

    "Garden was described as enclosed, it wasn’t and would benefit from a wardrobe in the house, otherwise very nice and comfortable would certainly go again and recommend"
    Jan ‐ 29 May 2018
    "The property needs a good clean. There is thick dust on the skirting and the paintwork is shabby. It states garden furniture which were green plastic chairs but no table. The shower room and toilet were crammed into a small cupboard. Bath sheets would be better than bath towels."

    "Beautiful cottage, lovely warm welcome from the owners. Beds really comfy, however lounge furniture could do with updating. Location good, peaceful and quiet yet not far from Wick and Thurso. However is on main road and although don't hear the traffic in the cottage wasn't great for walking dogs along."
