This little cottage was ideal for us. We stayed for one week on our way around Scotland. It is very well situated as it allowed us to take day trips to Wick, The Orkneys and the lovely north coast towns and beaches. North Winds was beautifully appointed, comfortable and very clean. It will remain a special place for us.
Northwinds is ideally situated on the very North East tip of the mainland and has great views over the Pentland Firth to Stroma and Hoy.
The accommodation is really well equipped and has everything you need. The place is modern, warm and a great place to base yourselves for braving the elements.
Ethel and David (the owners) are really helpful and friendly, and made us feel very welcome. Their house is at the other end of the plot, and Northwinds is very private and feels very much on it's own.
I would strongly recommend Northwinds and the north east of Scotland for nature lovers and people who really appreciate the great outdoors. There are some great walks along the coast, and would strongly advise a trip over to the Orkney Isles on the Pentland Ferry from Gills, just 3 minutes down the lane. Great place to stay!
