    2 Mayfield Cottages is a traditional croft cottage, set in open countryside and enjoying superb views to Dunnet Head, the most northerly promontory on the British Isles. The cottage has been extended over the years and now provides bright, modern accommodation for up to 5 guests. Most of the accommodation is on the ground floor and the cottage door opens onto a hallway. At the far end is the living room with a deep leather corner sofa, and patio doors lead out to a conservatory with further comfortable seating. The large picture windows and pretty conservatory look out over the garden to the dramatic cliffs of Dunnet Head on the far north coast, with the Orkney Isles clearly visible. Along the hallway there is a double bedroom and a single bedroom. The modern kitchen/dining room is well-equipped and French doors lead out from the kitchen to the lawned gardens beyond, making the room light and bright. There is also family-sized shower room on the ground floor and stairs lead up from the kitchen to the first floor bedroom with combed ceilings, so some restricted head room.

    The gardens are a real feature of the property, and surrounded by beautifully maintained dry stone walling, with lawned areas. The owners have cleverly incorporated the old sheep-shearing walls, planting the thick stone walls with a variety of small plants and flowers, creating a unique and attractive garden area that enjoys truly spectacular views across to Dunnet Head and the Orkney Isles. The superb wide, sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs, small bays and variety of villages all add to the magic of this distinctive and unexplored part of Scotland. The area is renowned for its bird and sea life with puffins, great skua, otters, seals, dolphins and whales all seen in and around the coast. A superb boat trip runs from John O’ Groats to encounter the sea life close to hand and to explore this fascinating coastline from a different perspective. The town of Thurso, just over 2 miles away, is steeped in history, built by the Vikings and added to over the centuries it now offers visitors a fascinating mix of ancient and modern. The Caithness Horizons Visitor Centre is well worth a visit. Local facilities also include a swimming pool, leisure centre, cinema, boating lake, quad biking, sailing and a good selection of shops, pubs, cafés and restaurants, as well as a wide variety of sports and activities close by. The renowned surfing beach at Dunnet, 4 miles, is host to the world championship surfing competition. There are many excellent golf courses in the region, together with horse riding, fishing, sailing and cycling - the cottage is situated on a cycle route and the quiet local roads and trails are ideal for this. Dunnet Forest also has miles of horse riding and off-road mountain bike trails for all ages and abilities. Return to 2 Mayfield Cottages at the end of the day and enjoy the spectacular sunset over the sea from its cosy conservatory. Beach 3 miles. Shop and pub 2 miles, restaurant 2½ miles.
