Code: ST01HI

Holiday property description

Station Cottage offers excellent family accommodation from which you have direct access to the fabulous Flow country which is acclaimed as one of the world's most enchanting places.   The nearest corner shop is approximately fifteen miles away and access to the cottage is along six miles of forest roads; alternatively you can catch a train to the Request Halt at Altnabreach Station (450m).  The scenery is startling and opportunities for outdoor pursuits are almost endless be it walking, mountain biking, fishing and of course enjoying the superb flora and fauna of this wild area.

While you could spend a week at this cottage taking walks everyday and not crossing the same path twice there is still good access to the other special sites and scenes in this fantastic area.   John O'Groats is close by with ferry links to Orkney making day trips to the islands possible. While just along the coast is Dunnet Head, the most northerly point of Britain, together with superb a sandy beach the bay which is a Mecca for surfing.   If more gentle pursuits are needed then the late Queen's Mother summer retreat at Castle of Mey should not to be missed together with awesome Castle Sinclair Girnigoe. This impregnable medieval stronghold is the most spectacular ruin in the North of Scotland and the only castle in Scotland to be listed by the World Monuments Fund.  

Wildlife abounds throughout the area both on your doorstep at the cottage or indeed along the rugged coast line which varies from superb sandy beaches such as Dunnet Bay or Melich Bay together with rugged coastal cliff walks.   The cliff walks are worth investigating to savour the sights of puffins and kittiwakes together with the chance to see whales, dolphin and porpoises.   With the coastline so near and together with the lochs and burns closer to the cottage water sports and angling are superbly catered for and brown trout fishing is available on the owners loch, Loch Dhu. 

Station Cottage makes a superb holiday location from which to explore the local heritage of the area including the quaint busy fishing towns of Thurso and Wick as well as seeing the great outdoors of Scotland at its best.
