We first stayed here 5 years ago and return at least once a year. It is just the perfect place to relax. The cottages are particularly well furnished/ equipped and are very cosy -we've even been here in winter when the storms are spectacular.
Tom and Nadia -the hosts are really lovely genuine people who could not be more welcoming and helpful.
The view from the window of big sea, sky right across to the Pentland Skerries would be hard to beat and it doesn't matter when you come or what the weather does-there is always something to look at. Wildlife birds, dolphins, whales, seals and ships of every shape and size that are back and forth along the Pentland Firth. The sea itself where the Firth meets Scapa Flow is mesmerising-changing colour/direction/flow as you watch it. Truly beautiful.
We love this place and have brought our children and friends here. We cannot recommend this place highly enough. If you love nature especially the sea - you must go to Cantick!
