What do you look for in a break?

Being woken by the rising sun, and strolling out with the dog across the bleak, beautiful cliffs of one of Scotland’s most stunning locations?

A long, lazy lie-in with your loved one in a cosy cottage, followed by a drive to a welcoming, bustling town for a traditional Scottish breakfast?

Or maybe it’s a long weekend with the kids, complete with arts and crafts, plenty of wildlife spotting, and a boat trip that takes in clowning puffins, majestic castles and mysterious caves?

Whatever you’re looking for, you’ll find it here in our newly renovated Lighthouse Keeper’s Cottage just outside of Wick.

About the cottage

Welcome to the cottage

Welcome to the cottage

Our cottage was built over 60 years ago for the Principal Lightkeeper and his family, making it perfect for a family break. It sleeps 6 people in 3 bedrooms, with a living room, a separate family/dining room, and a well equipped kitchen. Or you can cosy up with our DVDs, games and books, making the cottage the perfect base for your Scottish holiday.
Three comfortable bedrooms

Three comfortable bedrooms

The master bedroom’s super-king bed can be split into twins, and our twin beds and adult-sized bunks give you the flexibility to relax with family and friends, or to enjoy a little extra space on a romantic weekend.
Your base to explore Caithness

Your base to explore Caithness

Blow the cobwebs away on Caithness's magnificent beaches, wait quietly to photograph puffins or seals, or explore mysterious Neolithic sites. With castles and cottages, you can visit the Queen Mother's home at the Castle of Mey or find out how crofters and fisher-folk lived. Take in a tour and a tipple at one of our distilleries, or visit John o'Groats and pop over to Orkney for the day. If you like an adventure, take a sea tour or go surfing or kayaking, or even try some wild swimming.
Children and dogs more than welcome

Children and dogs more than welcome

We’re welcome adult dogs with no extra charge, though we ask you to keep your pet on a lead in case it's excited by being somewhere new. There’s a low sea wall between the lighthouse compound and cliffs, not to mention our neighbour's sheep and cattle, and baby birds in the spring and summer.
