"Craiglea lodge"

Craiglea is one of the most relaxing places one can imagine. The accommodation is to a high standard and the pool area is spacious. The close proximity to the coast means that the views from the lodge are terrific. We enjoyed our trips to the old Pulteney distillery in WIck and to John Ogroats. Highly recommended if you are looking for a peaceful location but still want plenty to do.
