About this location
The Caithness and Sutherland region
Caithness is the most northerly county in mainland Britain, well knows for its rugged natural beauty and often described as the lowlands beyounds the Higlands (the world famous Flow Country). The first impression here is a sense of openness with wide skies, dramatic seascapes and rolling moors merging westwards into rugged peaks.
Why not use the private foot path down to the beach and enjoy the beautiful views of Stroma and the Orkney Islands. Take a stroll to John O'Groats harbour, book various sea life adventure trips that let you cruise the Pentland Firth, pass rugged cliff scenery and explore the rich coastline. What better way to see Atlantic grey seals, dolphins, puffins, razorbills, kittiwakes and perhaps even one or two killer whales. If your feeling a bit more adventurous why not try the white-water RIB experience adventure, all available on your door step.
A visit to John O'Groats is not complete without exploring the famous Stacks of Duncansby, situated not far from Duncansby Head, where there is also a lighthouse. Here you can explore the area by different walks overlooking the Orkney Islands. There is also a lovely beach called Sannick that is worth a visit and if you're lucky you might come across some seals basking in the sun while being there.
The nearest main towns are Wick and Thurso, both located around the same distance away from John O'Groats (approx. 17 miles) or 20 minutes by car. Both towns have a selection off shops, bars, restaurants, supermarkets, swimming pools etc.
The globally famous John O'Groats is virtually on your door step with shops, café, tourist information, the famous Lands End to John O'Groats sign, various wildlife cruises, white-water RIB experience adventure and the passenger ferry which makes daily trips to Orkney and offers a variety of tours.
Seaview Hotel is walking distance from us which offers a fresh selection of local produce and large range of malt whiskies. The Schoolhouse Restaurant is another good option for those wanting a night off from cooking, offering a superb selection of fresh local produce and is in the village of John O'Groats about 10-15 minutes walk away.

A beautiful farmhouse, tastefully decorated and furnished. There were so many special touches. We had the most fabulous Christmas there. The views are spectacular and just a short walk from the coast and a wonderful view over to the Orkneys. The best cottage we've ever stayed in. Thank you.
