We used Westwinds as a base while visiting the Atlantic Coast of the North of Scotland - Frankly couldn't fault the place, we simply didn't want to leave - would book it again at the drop of a hat. A real cosy and comfortable place with really good facilities.
Excellent venue, well situated with views across Pentland firth and access to local beaches
Comfortable and well equipped accommodation with wood burning stove, good kitchen facilities. Only draw back was only 1 toilet!
A lovely house in an outstanding location with views over the Pentand Firth to the Orkneys. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and good to cook in. The bedrooms and living areas are very comfortable. When we needed help with the television the owners responded quickky to resolve the problem.
From the house we walked down to Melvich bay, both through the dunes and across the rocks - a really stunning beach. Portskerra has a children's park and a small shop. Thurso is @ 20 minutes away by car where there are a couple of supermarkets, a swimming pool and a cinema.
The area is rich in things to see and do - we went over to the Orkneys to see the neolithic settlements and stone circles. By John O'Groats are the Stacks and a beach often populated by seals. There are many golden beaches that are worth exploring.

The photos of this house on the website don't do it justice. It is spacious and comfortable and spotlessly clean! Owner was very helpful and responded promptly to our messages. The area is stunning with many beautiful beaches nearby and easy driving distance to Thurso where there's a variety of restaurants/bars etc. Loads to do with John O'Groats nearby and day trips to Orkney, whale/dolphin spotting trips etc. fab holiday!
