The Ha Farmhouse is directly facing you and driveway entrance is the first on your right (second driveway).
From Thurso take the A836 to John o’Groats, pass by Gills, Canisbay and Huna. We are on the left just before the Seaview Hotel.
A Bit More About The Area: Why not use the private foot path down to the beach and enjoy the beautiful views of Stroma and the Orkney Islands. Take a stroll to John o’Groats harbour, book various sea life adventure trips that let you cruise the Pentland Firth, pass rugged cliff scenery and explore the rich coastline. What better way to see Atlantic grey seals, dolphins, puffins, razorbills, kittiwakes and perhaps even one or two killer whales. If your feeling a bit more adventurous why not try the white-water RIB experience adventure, all available on your door step.
A visit to John o’Groats is not complete without exploring the famous Stacks of Duncansby, situated not far from Duncansby Head, where there is also a lighthouse. Here you can explore the area by different walks overlooking the Orkney Islands. There is also a lovely beach called Sannick that is worth a visit and if you’re lucky you might come across some seals basking in the sun while being there.

I am in love....
This is such a beautiful and peaceful place. We enjoyed the very large house and the hospitality of Katie and Andrew very much. In fact, we will be re-booking as soon as we get home - it was just that perfect. A path leads down to the sea and on to the village of John O' Groats and on to Duncansby Head and beyond. Stargazing was wonderful. The ferry to Orkney was also walking distance. The house had everything we needed....made one stop at Tesco and along with our welcome pack we were set for a week of exploring and relaxing. There are 4 large bedrooms, two nice baths - both on the main level - a den/lounge, and our favorite place, a sunroom. There is also a huge kitchen, great laundry room, and game room - we didn't use all these rooms but they would be great for some families. The house is perfectly situated and we were truly happy to be there. We are now touring Inverness, but had I known how great it would be, I would have just stayed at the Ha. I miss it!
Beautiful location, very comfortable stay
This house has beautiful views all around. It's equipped with everything you need for a lovely holiday. Perfect for a family. Our kids loved the playroom.
Excellent property for our family holiday
The Ha Farmhouse with its four bedrooms, well-equipped kitchen, sun lounge and children's room was perfect for our family holiday. The sea and village of John O'Groats is a very short walk away. There are plenty of coastal walks and landscapes to view. We just about kept our teenagers happy.
The owners provided a lovely welcome pack and were most helpful and informative. The house was very clean.
We would recommend it.
Excellent property, catered for all our needs
Thanks to the owners, the property is a real credit to you both. We had a fantastic time and would highly recommend. How lucky you are to live in the beautiful Highlands. Shame we had to go home!
Wonderful property and lovely hosts. Warm house, plenty of space and some very homely touches.
Seven adults and a dog stayed for 2 weeks in June. The house was warm and comfortable and the weather was good. I bought some lovely gifts in John O'Groats. We enjoyed a trip to Orkney as well as travelling futher afield.
The nearest main towns are Wick and Thurso, both located around the same distance away from John o’Groats (approx. 17 miles) or 20 minutes by car. Both towns have a selection of shops, bars, restaurants, supermarkets, swimming pools etc.
The globally famous John o’Groats is virtually on your door step with shops, café, tourist information, the famous Lands End to John o’Groats sign, various wildlife cruises, white-water RIB experience adventure and the passenger ferry which makes daily trips to Orkney and offers a variety of tours.
Seaview Hotel is walking distance from us which offers a fresh selection of local produce and large range of malt whiskies.
