2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 4
Mey, Caithness and Sutherland, Scottish Highlands, Scotland
Sleeps Two Adults and Two Children

North Winds was newly built in 2007 and is situated in quiet countryside with views over looking the Pentland Firth, Stroma and the Orkney Islands.

The rural area of Gills situated on the far north coast of Scotland is the ideal base for exploring the county of Caithness or arranging day trips to the Orkney Isles. The globally famous John O'Groats (the end of the road) is only a 5 minutes drive away and the historic Castle of Mey (Queen Mother's former residence) is also around 5 minutes drive away and we are literally only a few minutes away from the Gills Bay Car and Passenger Ferry.

The two bedroom modern bungalow contains a double room and twin room (with bunk beds) and is ideal for a couple or small families as it can sleep a maximum off two adults and two children.
