Welcome to the cottageOur 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 bedroomsThe 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 CaithnessBlow 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 welcomeWe’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.
Book DirectBooking direct is quicker and simpler because there's no-one in the middle, in fact we have often found our standards of customer care are higher than most of the online travel-agents. You don't have to pay booking fees, and we can give better prices because we don't pay commission.
Prices, availability and bookingYou won’t find any hidden charges here. Our secure online booking calendar shows the prices and availability. Book from Monday to Friday. Our prices range from £350 to £850 for four nights, or stay eleven nights to really relax and recharge.
