Lovely little cottage. It was centrally located for all our sightseeing needs, very handy to the local shop and pub!

“Fishing trip with friends”
Reviewed 9 January 2019 for a stay in June 2017

The location is fantastic basically next to loch watten and within easy distance to many other wild brown trout lochs. There is a shop next door for supplies and even better a cosy little pub next to the shop. Wick is the nearest town about 7/8 miles away. I would recommend the school house to any group of anglers, walkers or anybody that likes the great outdoors. I have booked to return again in June this year.

“Beautiful central location very quaint house”

person found this review helpful

Such a lovely house , everything you need.
Books / dvds/ board games 3 tv's.across 3 rooms.
Family of six and two dogs visiting.
On main road BUT very little road noise.
Shop next door very handy . Larder had the necessities left by previous guests and us, e.g salt , oil , fairy liquid soap powder etc.
Washing machine great but programs seem very long ,combi dryer but not ideal , to be fare radiators were great and we were there for a week .
Also some essentials in bathroom...we had forgotten loo roll ....
Both toilets ( and shower/bath) on ground floor and both had wee steps to get to them , fine for us , but consider the less firm when making your choice. 
Truly felt at home , as many dishes , pots n oans etc as you may need. 
Would suggest consideration given to updating couches and matress in main bedroom , whilst functionable just not the comfiest, but again we were there for a week..
There is a gate to back garden if you choose to close it , but front garden is open . 
Plenty of dog walking on safe pavements and poo disposal bins readily available..
My children enchanted with several honesty boxes close by for fresh produce , jams ,eggs and even home made tablet. 
Decent swing park within very short distance from house , 
Location is IDEAL ten minutes from Wick, 20 mins to Thurso , 30 mins to John o Groats on decent but few single track roads which is no issue bit worth mentioning .
Caretaker was located next door and introduced himself when we were unloading car .
Very good value for money, the owner was very flexible re dates and check in / check out too. 
Had a great family holiday and if in same position would most definately return to Watten and the Old School House .

“Watten”
Reviewed 12 May 2017 for a stay in May 2017

The School house Watten was the perfect location for our painting holiday. The whole house was warm, and very welcoming when we arrived.

The house was very well appointed and the rooms were clean and the beds were really comfortable. It was just like a home from home. The local shop next door was very useful too.

A very happy and pleasant stay.
