I stayed here for 2 nights, the rooms was small and basic but clean and tidy, having all I would need for my stay. I would haply stay there again.

Just a lovely place in countryside: on the coast you can see seals and puffins. The Dunnet Head Lighthouse sits about three miles to north and The Castle of Mey about eight miles to east. The place is clean and silent, the rooms are homelike and the keepers Tina and Brian are helpful and kind. I warmly recommend.

Everything you would need for your stay is here, Fridge,...

The bed was extremely uncomfortable, bed springs digging in to our ribs on both sides of the bed. It meant very little sleep. The breakfast wasn't enjoyable and overall it was a poor experience. We payed extra to avoid the 'small double room' and we still could only just fit around the bed. Spend a little more money and stay...
