We have had difficulty in finding good accommodation in this area in the past, but good old Tripadvisor found Valley View for us this year. It is a new house, beautifully decorated and tastefully furnished throughout. Our room was lovely and we had an excellent nights sleep in a comfy king-sized bed. Our breakfast was excellent and Antoinette was extremely helpful in offering travel and dining out advice. The house is situated in a quiet location just 5 minutes from Thurso, although the Tomtom did have some difficulty in finding it!
We were only staying one night before catching the ferry to Orkney and I just wish we had found Valleyview two years ago when we 'did' the northeast coast and attractions such as Castle of Mey and Dunnet Head etc. We would definitely stay here again and recommend to others.
