Keepers Cottage offers accommodation in Forsinain, 16.2 miles from Thurso. The property is 29.2 miles from John O Groats and features views of the river. This is an amazing opportunity to escape from the citty buzz to remote location in the middle of nowhere. At night time it will become pitch black and it is so quite that you can hear the deers rutting. The oven completes the coziness factor while you are sitting on the very comfortable couch watching telly on the massive flat screen. The cottage is equipped with all the necessary cooking things and it is a pleasing experience to cook with a real fire. The facilities are all quite modern and comfortable. Free private parking is available on site. Towels and bed linen are offered in this self-catering accommodation. The area is popular for fishing and hiking.

About the neighbourhood
It is possibly the remotest place in the UK, perfect for those who are looking to escape from the city buzz. Perfect for hiking and relaxation.
If you are traveling from Inverness by train then you must let the conductor know that it is a request stop at Altnabreac. From Altnabreac you can also get to Thurso and Wick. You must let us know if you are planning to arrive by train so we can pick you up and escort to the cottage.
How to get there
Airport: Wick airport: 38.0 km
If you are arriving by road and do not have a four-wheel-drive vehicle, then we suggest that you travel on the A895 (turn off the A9 at Helmsdale) and the turn right over a small bridge about 2 miles after passing Forsinard Hotel, followed by an immediate right turn. You will have to open and close 5 gates, none of which are locked, and then come to Lochdhu Lodge (also in Altnabreac - the big house with wind turbines) to collect the keys.
