Description

The Garden Apartment, Thrumster House is set in 20 acres of woodland and gardens, featuring an Iron Aged Broch which has recently been excavated and a summerhouse with a pond. Thrumster is situated 5 miles south of Wick in Caithness and 30 mins from the Castle of Mey, the Queen Mother's home during the summer.
Included in your let is fly fishing on any of our 5 wild brown trout lochs and with a booking in advance we can provide a rod and a boat on most of these for £10 per day .
We are only a couple of miles from the Yarrows Archaeological Trail dating from the Mesolithic era to the Iron age with Brochs, Stone rows, Standing Stones, hut circles and Cairns.
There are often archeological digs in the summer which welcome volunteers, with or without previous experience.

Caithness has a wealth of wildlife , ideal for bird watching. Along the coast there are lots of castles, some inhabited and some ruinous. Stunning coastal walks along the cliffs and Reiss beach

Caithness has a wealth of wildlife , ideal for bird watching. Along the coast there are lots of castles, some inhabited and some ruinous. Stunning coastal walks along the cliffs and Reiss beach is a must with two miles of sand and castles at either end.
The apartment has 3 bedrooms , two single, and a double , bath/shower and a log burner in the living room, during your stay you will be provided with plenty of chopped wood and coal.

The Caithness and Sutherland region

Caithness is the most north east county on the British mainland ,with a flat landscape it is famed for it's big skies and rolling flow country, one of the last wild lands of Scotland , all along the coast there are stunning cliffs and castles dotted all along. In Caithness we have a wealth of unexcavated archeology that rivals that of Orkney, but if you want to see Orkney it can be reached by boat from John O'Groats or Gills bay which is 30 mins drive from Wick.
The Castle of Mey ,was the Queen Mother's home for a few weeks in the summer and is half an hour drive from us .

Wick

Wick is a small harbour town that was built on the herring fishing until the 1920s. It is home to The Old Pultney whisky distillery who provide guided tours and small dram at the end.
The Caithness Seacoast tours are run from the Marina in Wick and is a great way to see the coast line which has lots of sea caves, stacks , birdlife, harbours, lighthouses and castles.
The Wick Heritage centre is well worth a visit and and houses the well known Johnston photographic collection.
There is horse riding, surfing and all sorts of activities available. Each let will be provided with up to date information on events, activities and places to visit.

“Comfortable”

Reviewed 18 Sep 2016

This apartment was very comfortable. Especially the bed. The kitchen was a little rough, and not very well equipped by our standards, and the shower was a bit grotty. However the grounds are lovely to walk in and the accommodation comfortable.

“In need of modernisation and then would be a great place to stay.”

Reviewed 5 Aug 2013

This place was in a great location. in the grounds of a former grand estate house. The apartment was attached to the side of the house and accessed from the side. The kitchen was basic and needs replacement really. There were always hundreds of flies near the door probably as the bins are so near the kitchen window. It was all very dated and dark and previous tenants towels were still in situ in one room. Expensive for the quality and standard on offer but accommodation hard to find in summer months.

I am very sorry you did not enjoy your stay at the Apartment , but this is not the usual experience from the majority of our guests. I was very shocked by such a bad review as I had spoken to you on two occasions and asked if everything was alright and I was assured everything was fine , maybe I could have had a chance to rectify any problems you were experiencing at that moment and not after the event. Regards Catherine
