The Antlers has the most fantastic view of the North Sea! The room was clean and very comfortable. The family were lovely, very welcoming. We had an evening meal and breakfast during our stay, both were excellent!

our trips to Caithness are not complete without a stay at Antlers, huge rooms, lovely and clean, and the breakfasts are huge, no need to eat for the rest of the day. 2106 is the next planned trip, but we will be back at Antlers for sure
