About Far North Cottage

Offering a beautiful Cottage at spectacular Dunnet Head, Caithness. Nowadays the Far North Coast is easier to reach than the Isle of Skye and Far North cottage, the most Northerly Detached Cottage on the Scottish Mainland is accessed via a single track road from the little hamlet of Brough.

Refurbished with all modern Luxuries example optional extra Eco Hot Tub (£80 supplement) Sauna and Jacuzzi baths, yet retaining much of it's original charm Far North offers very comfortable accommodation with all 21st century Luxury, Full double glazing and total control electric heating throughout. Its thick stone walls keeping out the cold winters and oppressive summer heat waves away.

Living Space relax and settle into a good book before the Log Burner in the living room comfortably furnished with armchairs and sofas, this room is warm and well lit. In it you will find a Freeview TV, Hi Fi and lovely sea views. Or lounge in the Conservatory enjoying amazing Sea Views and benefiting from the sun from dawn till dusk.

Dunnet Head is Britain's most northerly point, it is also further north than Moscow and Stavanger in Norway - but more easily accessible.

Standing high above the surrounding Pentland Firth the views extend all the way from Cape Wrath at the north-western tip of mainland Scotland to Duncansby Head at its much closer north-eastern tip. In some ways, though, it is Hoy and Orkney to the north that command most attention.

And if you can drag your eyes away from the shoreline and seascape, the views inland to the surprisingly pointy peaks of Morvern and Maiden Pap simply complete the stunning vista.

Living with you during your stay on and around this most beautiful peninsula are Puffins, Eagles, Great Skua, Ravens, Rock Dove, Twite and of course deer....and if you want to see, Kingfishers, Otters, Seals, Dolphins, whales and a whole host of other wildlife...simply take a 1/4 mile stroll from the cottage down the single track road to "Brough bay" (sunrise picture above) Breeding Puffins are present from March to September and nearby Dunnet Bay includes Great Northern Diver, Common Scoter, Goldeneye, Red-Breasted Merganser, ducks and gulls. White-fronted Geese overwinter in nearby Loch Mey. Except for the cliff breeding colonies, there are birds in residence year-round.

The areas of Caithness and Sutherland form Scotland's northern wilderness offering superb panoramic mountain views and stunning scenery. Their scenery varies from wild cliffs and tiny islands to lonely moorland and remote golden sandy beaches. You will find Majestic castles like Dunrobin, Old Wick and Girnigoe, dozens of ancient monuments, quality tweeds and woollens, whisky distilleries such as Clynelish Distillery. Plus tree-lined twisting roads, spectacular bays, pretty harbours and foaming rivers rich in Brown Trout and Salmon.
