Why stay here
Set slightly back from a sandy beach, our tranquil site at Dunnet Bay enjoys views over the North Atlantic Ocean and lends itself to those wishing to explore the vast natural beauty of the Scottish Highlands.
Get away from the bustle of everyday life and delve into this beautiful and largely untouched piece of coastal countryside. We are tucked in just below Dunnet Head, the most northerly point of mainland Britain; and a short drive from John O’Groats on the north-eastern tip of Scotland.
Family days out
A boat tour to the Orkney Islands will take 40 minutes to cross from John O’Groats to Burwick. A coach will meet you and take you to landmarks like Skara Brae (Stone Age village), Scapa Flow, Stromness, Kirkwall, Churchill Barriers, Ring of Brodgar, Standing Stones of Stenness and the Italian Chapel.
Travel to Dunnet Head to the RSPB reserve and lighthouse, where you’ll look out from the most northerly point on Britain’s mainland. In spring, seabirds settle on the cliffs to build nests; in summer, you may see the birds feed their young and in autumn, geese from Greenland and Iceland pass overhead.
