Situated on the coast, 3 miles West of John 'O Groats and on the door step of Gills ferry port to Orkney, this grand, recently built bed & breakfast, omits luxery whilst being affordable! The property boasts a beautiful large flag stone entrance with oak finishings through out, a spacious dining room where guests can take in the beautiful views over Orkney whilst enjoying their cooked breakfast. There is a living area for use by our guests, with a log burning fire. Each of the 3 bedrooms are spacious, light and airy with large on suits to relax in after a day out exploring. The property is also wheelchair friendly. Local amenities include a choice of Pubs / restaurants 3 miles West and East, John 'O Groats passenger ferry (summer months) 3 miles and selection of beaches and walks, bird / whale / seal watching to name a few.
