“our favourite”

We have spent 5 weeks travelling through the UK and this has been our favourite place to stay. I say this without in any way detracting from the wonderful places we have visited. The cottage had so much character and it was extremely clean and very comfortable. There were 2 bedrooms, a fully equipped kitchen, a large and comfortable lounge room and bathroom. But it also had a wonderful decking out the back with magnificent views as you would expect from a lighthouse. You could breathe the peace and tranquility of the area as you sat out there. We enjoyed the slow setting sun for a couple of hours and then watched the sun rise over the water very early the next day. Sheila had made our stay very comfortable and welcoming. I also walked right around the lighthouse compound and thoroughly enjoyed photographing many aspects of the area. Excellent value for money. Pity we could not give it an extra star for the review.

“Amazing”
Reviewed 27 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

What can I say. This was a perfect place to stay. Right on the ocean. Private deck right off the kitchen. Fireplace in the living room. If I had any idea it was going to be this good I would have booked a week instead of 2 nights. Extremely friendly and helpful host. Oh, did I mention that I really liked it? Hope to return some day.

“Must experience staying here”
Reviewed 8 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

Very friendly welcome and the cottage is clean, very homely and we enjoyed the 'real' fire.
The location is superb and within easy distance to many interesting places and lovely walks.
Staying the lighthouse keepers cottage is an experience not to be missed-looking out to sea from the decking area, trying to spot wildlife and seeing the light on at nighttime.
Will definately be returning.

“Amazing experience!”

Despite the chill wind howling in from the North Sea, we were warm and snug in front of our blazing fire. This is a must do, spectacular scenery combined with the novelty of staying in a lighthouse keeper's cottage. Loved our stay! Just a niggle...our bedroom (second
bedroom)had two
uncomfortable and rickety
single beds with nowhere to put our bags. The kitchen had no cupboards or pantry space and our groceries were strewn
across the window sill. But the experience was marvellous.

“The most memoreable house ever!”
Reviewed 18 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

I'am a lighthouse lover, and it couldn't have been more perfect for me to stay 2 nights at the Skerry cottage! the house has been amazingly refurbished and this is the most scenic place i've ever rented! the cottage is very comfortable and beautifully decorated. I wished i could stay there longer. If you dream to sleep almost 'on the sea' and live the feeling of being a lighthouse keeper once in your life, I strongly recommend you to spend days at the Buchan Ness lighthouse, an A-MA-ZING place!
