We travelled from Cumbria/Lake district so was a very long drive and arrived when it was overcast and raining. However the cottage was fantastic, very warm with everything you would need. The rooms are very spacious and comfortable and the kitchen/diner is huge.
After such a long drive we all relaxed and had an early night. When we woke the next morning the weather had lifted and it was a beautiful clear morning and we all stood in the garden and said 'wow'. The view over to the Orkneys was breathtaking and there was a seal bobbing around on the shore edge which delighted the kids :-) To sum it up we had a brilliant weeks holiday and it was over way too quickly. If you want peace and quiet with spectacular views then Mey Cliff is the place to stay !!!!

“Perfect place to stay!”
Reviewed 2 December 2014 for a stay in November 2014

Although I struggled to find the cottage at first it is a fantastic little place near Thurso! It offers fabulous views with amazing sunsets and sunrises! Interior was lovely and modern, which gave a real homey feel. Even though it was cold when I traveled here in November it was still worth it! The cottage stayed warm, and the beds were warmer! :)

Will have to try here again in the summer time!

“Excellent cottage”
Reviewed 29 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

The cottage is well presented and clean, all the facilities you need are built in, the views take in Dunnett Head, Hoy, Mey Castle. The wildlife is constantly changing with resident seals, Fulmars, oyster catchers present all the time. We had a very relaxing and enjoyable holiday and would highly recommend this cottage.

“Very Relaxing”
Reviewed 27 May 2014 for a stay in May 2014

The cottage was fantastic and the views stunning, the photos really don't do it justice. It was very relaxing & peaceful just sitting looking at the scenery and listening to sea.

We would recommend going on the tour of Castle Mey, it was really interesting and the kids loved it. Also, a visit to Whaligoe Steps is a must and the cafe there does absolutely superb food.

Hopefully we will back again next year, throughly enjoyed our break away.
