Arrived at cabin 16 for a 7 night stay 12/04/2014 accommodation first class with everything you would require for a self catering break ! Stunning location with views over the Pentland Firth and when the weather was clear you could easily see Orkney and other surrounding islands. Dunnet Head and the Stax of Duncansby are a must see and take your camera, fabulous.
Now the downside the kitchen tap was in dire need of repair as it had appeared to have lost contact with the sink and quite dangerous (especially when using the piping hot water) also the roofing on all the cabins is beginning to blow away with the constant prevailing wind that seems to gust on this part of the coastline although this did not effect our stay. My biggest complaint was I felt I had been ripped off I booked this accommodation in January 2014 at a cost of £901 imagine how I felt when I discovered I could have booked the same cabin for the same break on the 7/04/2014 for almost £300 less than what I was charged !!! (book early to save disappointment HA HA HA) Fortunately this did not take away from the break and I would recommend a holiday at this location to anyone, just beware of the pricing.
