    Keiss Harbour House is a stunning, contemporary-styled house created from the historic harbour fishing station on the edge of the Caithness village of Keiss, some 12 miles south of John O'Groats. The five bedrooms and spacious reception rooms make it ideal for entertaining groups of friends or family gatherings. This area is ideal for those seeking an active holiday, with surfing and golf being local specialities, or for a more relaxing break, with sandy beaches, fishing and many historical and archaeological attractions in easy reach. This is also an ideal base for trips to the Orkney Islands. Or why not just sit in an armchair in front of one of the three real fires, looking at the spectacular views out over the sea and drinking your complimentary bottle of local whisky!

    Additional amenities & feature info
    Keiss Harbour House forms part of the historic Keiss Harbour, and was built as the fishing station for the harbour. The building was restored and converted into a house around five years ago, and has a dramatic combination of history and contemporary styling. The house directly overlooks the harbour, which is still used by fishing boats. On sunny days, the harbour provides a delightful area for sitting outside, watching the boats come and go.

    The reception rooms in Keiss Harbour House are located upstairs, to take advantage of the sea views. The upstairs rooms comprise:
    • Spectacular ‘great hall’ style living/dining room with handmade wooden table to seat up to 15 people, two seating areas with sofas and armchairs, with an open fire and a wood burning stove
    • Hall with open fire and sma...

All the five bedrooms are very spacious with three bath rooms including a steam room and a well equipped... more
