Nestled in a picturesque hillside in Latheronwheel, Caithness, Craiglea is the perfect place to escape from it all and where the only stress is to choose between the thrills of the many outdoor pursuits on offer or the tranquillity of stunning natural surroundings.

“Craiglea lodge”

Reviewed 18 Feb 2014

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.

“Great week”

Reviewed 20 Nov 2013

This was my son's 21st Birthday present. He wanted to go away with all his mates for a week and my husband and I tagged along as chief cook and bottle washer. The place is great especially the pool area where the young ones spent most of their time. Loads of space for everyone to be together or have a quite time in the barn. Couple of down sides were that we could not use the second kitchen in the main house which makes cooking for 16 a task running back and forth to the barn to put thing in and out the oven. The curtain were a bit of a nightmare, some you just touched and they fell down. Our pull cord ones in the barn bedroom fell off at the inside edge and when I went to fix them I got pricked with pins. Every time a curtain broke we found them to be hanging with pins and paperclips so they are obviously an ongoing problem. Good tip from previous review to order from tesco to be delivered. If you have a lot of frozen stuff ask for access to the chest freezer as the two freezers you have access to are quite small. Great stay would highly recommend for families and large groups

Owner's reply: Thanks for your kind review, we are pleased to hear you enjoyed your stay and that you would recommend to others. We will see to the curtain issue asap! Craiglea Lodge

“Spotless, comfortable, and spacious. Hope to do it all over again”

Reviewed 25 Aug 2013

I stayed at Craiglea Lodge together with friends. We both had young children. I was impressed by the complete experience. The booking process was excellent and professional. We were met at the lodge by the local agent who showed us around and kindly saw to all our needs during the stay. Each room was well furnished and comfortable and as advertised. There's a great spacious area for dining/ relaxing. The star is the pool area which is absolutely lovely; the pool clean and warm with music with surround sound, and a table tennis table to top it all off. The kids had a great time during the day and adults had some private time at night. Would surely recommend to families with children and adult breaks. A handy tip - I ordered a Tesco grocery order (Wick) to be delivered the evening we arrived which worked out perfectly.

“Paradise”

Reviewed 21 May 2013

Glorious location, near the northern tip of Scotland. 10 minute walk to the sea. Beautiful scenery. Hundreds of acres of countryside and genuine fresh clean air. Quiet & secluded. Peaceful and relaxing, yet dozens of activities for the restless: indoor swimming, biking, countryside walks, wildlife, shooting, whisky tasting, historical castle, sailing (during our summer visit), and I've left out dozens of other activities. Stayed there 4 times in the winter and once in the summer. Cannot recommend it highly enough. We had a thoroughly enjoyable time every time, and in all variations of weather. We've been with friends and family: everybody thoroughly enjoyed it, from the babies in their buggies to my elderly uncle in his eighties. My deepest regret: we cannot go this summer.
