About the neighbourhood
Gartymore is part of a crofting estate, and the surrounding countryside is still actively crofted. There is a wealth of wildlife quite literally right outside the door, deer and buzzards are often seen from the house, but golden eagles, otters, dolphins, slow worms and lizards have also been seen from the front garden. Helmsdale village has a selection of local amenities, with a general grocers, Post Office, Library, Heritage center and art gallery and selection of cafe's, restaurants and gift shops, you can get most things you might need. Places worth visiting are Dunrobin Castle, Falls of Shin, and any of the beaches. There are plenty of walks on the surrounding hills, as well as mountain bike trails in Golspie.
Getting around
The most convenient way to get around is by car. The train runs between Inverness and Wick, and can be a lovely trip in itself to see the scenery, but times are limited, so check the timetable to make sure there is a train back later in the day.
