The accommodation is first class and immaculate. We have used this company before and know that it has very high standards. On arrival, the place was spotless with not even a water mark evident. The onsite staff looked after our every need, including organising a Doctor's appointment extremely promptly (thanks Janette). We took advantage of the company's wildlife spotting trip on the 'rib' craft, a large inflatable type boat. This was fantastic and well worth the cost. We saw seals, puffins and guillimots on a trip that lasted at least and hour and a half. The company also has a cafe at the site and an outfitters type shop just in case you forget anything or want to treat yourself.
My wife also had some of the Spa beauty treatments which are also on offer through this company. She enjoyed this tremendously and would certainly recommend it to others.
Natural Retreats are also renovating the John O'Groats Hotel to their usual high standards and we were lucky enough to get a look at the work so far and the usual quality of finish (thanks Adam). Last year we went to Land's End - I much preferred John O'Groats which is far less commercialised, restrictive or otherwise inhibiting. At Land's End, everything was either out of bounds or attracted a fee of some sort.
The area is quite stark and barren but is also stunning. It is impressive on a big scale rather than beautiful (like the Lakes for example). For us, a place to chill out for a week with a few activities taken in. We would certainly do this again.
