    Larachan is a spacious, detached holiday bungalow perched on the edge of the sea, in the quiet hamlet of Scarfskerry. It provides bright and generous accommodation, and the lounge has large picture windows that boast amazing uninterrupted sea views across the Pentland Firth to Orkney. There is a bright, modern kitchen/dining area and three attractively presented bedrooms. The garden grounds lead directly down to the sea with a private rocky beach. This area has some of the finest beaches to be found in the UK. At nearby Dunnet Bay, paths lead through the white sandy dunes to the sweeping beach below. Surfing, body-boarding, sand-buggying, swimming, horse riding and wildlife watching are all local pastimes, yet this superb beach is never crowded. It is also close to the Highland Tourist Trail that runs from Wick Harbour in the east, through to Ullapool in the west. This trail follows a route across the far north and west of Scotland, taking in some of the most dramatic scenery, with mountain ranges, stunning beaches and an ever-changing coastline along the way.
    The Castle of Mey, beautifully restored by the late Queen Mother, is clearly visible from the cottage and just a stones throw away. This fairytale castle has a fascinating history and the gardens, grounds and views are wonderful. The whole area is renowned for its bird and sea life, puffins, Great Skua, otters, seals, dolphins and whales are all seen around these coastal waters. Take a boat trip from John O’ Groats to encounter the sealife and to explore this fascinating coastline. Day trips are also available to the Orkney Isles, where visitors can explore Neolithic villages, standing stones, Scapa Flow and the amazing Italian chapel, built by prisoners during the Second World War.

    A phantastic place. We loved the view right from the living room looking over the ocean to the Orkneys. And we loved to walk down to the ocean right at the house. Furthermore, the house was full of nice little stylish details.

    Fantastic location. Plenty of supplies to wash clothes but no washing up liquid or dish washer tabs supplied?

    This cosy cottage is in a perfect location with breathtaking scenery. The little path at the end of the garden leads to the rocky beach and waves below. The sunsets are amazing. It is the perfect spot for touring and sightseeing. Thankyou for a wonderful stay.

    lovely location very peaceful, amazing views across to Hoy and Dunnett Head, with its own rock beach its a great place to get away from it all. great to have a welcome pack of tea, coffee, sugar and milk. nice touch was the bottle of wine and flowers. property was clean, and well presented. well stocked with everything you could possibly require in a holiday let. we did have an issue with no saucepans but after several phone calls this issue was rectified promptly. only thing that was annoying was the squeaky hall floor, not so noticeable during the day but at night trying to walk to the bathroom and not wake anyone up is a bit of a challenge. Plenty of things to do around the area. we had a lovely holiday and will return.

    We had a very relaxing stay, the sun rose over the Castle of Mey and the sea view from the picture window was great, every thing we needed in the cottage clean and warm
