Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday home in Wick - Keiss Harbour House

Harbour house in the north-east of Scotland, sleeps 12 people

Keiss Harbour House is a stunning, contemporary-styled house on the edge of the Caithness village of Keiss, some 12 miles south of John O'Groats. The five bedrooms and spacious reception rooms make it ideal for entertaining groups of friends or family gatherings.

This area is ideal for those seeking an active holiday, with surfing and golf being local specialities, or for a more relaxing break, with sandy beaches, fishing and many historical and archaeological attractions in easy reach. This is also an ideal base for trips to the Orkney Islands. Or why not just sit in an armchair in front of one of the three real fires, looking out over the sea?

The far northern highlands of Caithness are an unexplored gem of Scotland. There are fascinating archaeological remains and historic houses and museums to visit, surfing, golfing, walking, and easy access to the Orkney Islands. The stunning northern coast of Scotland and the north-western Highlands are also within easy reach.

Keiss Harbour House has five bedrooms and three reception areas, arranged over two floors.

The reception rooms in Keiss Harbour House are located upstairs, to take advantage of the sea views. The upstairs rooms comprise:

Spectacular ‘great hall’ style living/dining room with handmade wooden table to seat up to 15 people, two seating areas with sofas and armchairs, with an open fire and a wood burning stove

Hall with open fire and small dining table and 4 chairs for more intimate meals.

Fully equipped kitchen: Shower room with toilet.

The living/dining room, kitchen and hall all benefit from spectacular sea views.

The bedrooms and bathrooms are downstairs, accessed from a beautifully lit corridor: Three double bedrooms (two with balconies). One twin bedroom. Bunk room with two sets of bunks. Shower-room with steam room facility and toilet. Bathroom with hand-held shower and toilet. Laundry area with washing machine, iron and tumble drier.

The bedrooms and bathroom all benefit from spectacular sea views.

The house has the following facilities: Two open fires and a stove. Steam room. Table tennis table. Stereo with iPod dock. Games and jigsaws, books. Underfloor heating. Locked store for surfing gear, fishing equipment, etc. Logs and coal provided.

Keiss Harbour House forms part of the historic harbour in the village of Keiss. The house directly overlooks the harbour, which is still used by fishing boats. On sunny days, the harbour provides a delightful area for sitting outside, watching the boats come and go.

The Keiss village pub is five minutes walk away, as is the village shop, which stocks a range of useful supplies.

Just wanted to say thank you for letting us stay at your lovely house. There was no room left in the visitors book so we couldn't make any comments! We all thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the house was delightful.

We managed to drink the bottle of Whisky between us over the week and that was a lovely thought, thank you!

We all had a fab time in your wonderful house. We were blessed with great weather and managed to do a bit of sightseeing. The house worked out really well with our group. We stayed in the Lake District the week before and your house was much better.

Whether you are on a family holiday, sporting break or get-together of friends, you will find plenty to do with easy access from the house.

The sandy links course of Wick Golf Club is five minutes drive away, as is the surfers mecca of Sinclair's Bay. There are further renowned surfing beaches, around Thurso and Strathy, within half an hours drive. Fishing on nearby rivers and lochs is available, or you can fish off the harbour wall!

The Queen Mother's house, the Castle of Mey, is a moving and interesting place to visit, within half an hour's drive. Heritage Museums in Wick and Thurso provide a fascinating insight into the history of Caithness, and numerous archaeological sites such as the Cairns of Camster and Yarrows Archaeological Trail show the ancient civilisation of the area.

A day trip to see the sights of Orkney is a must, with Orkney less than an hour away by ferry from Gills Bay or John o' Groats, both around 15 min drive from the house.
