Holiday Rental House
Keiss Harbour House is a stunning, contemporary-styled house created from the historic harbour fishing station 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 at the spectacular views out over the sea and drinking your complimentary bottle of local whisky!

The Keiss village pub is five minutes walk away, as is the village shop, which sells useful supplies. Ten minutes drive away is the local centre of Wick, with a wide range of amenities and shops, and an excellent Heritage Museum. More

About the neighbourhood
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 an hours drive. Kayaking and canoeing is also a great activity in the area. Fishing on nearby rivers and lochs is available, or you can fish off the harbour wall! The riding stables (Achalone Activities) in nearby Halkirk offers lessons, hacking and trekking for all abilities, and for the adventurous, there are exhilarating boat trips along the Caithness Coast from Wick Harbour and wildlife boat trips in the Pentland Firth from John o' Groats and Scrabster.

How to get there
Fly to Wick Airport, just 10 minutes drive away, with flights from Edinburgh with flybe.com and flights from Aberdeen with easternairways.com. Or fly to Inverness (around 3 hours drive away) from many destinations around the UK and then get the train or hire a car for the remainder of your journey. Travelling by rail is a great way to arrive in Caithness, with Wick railway station just 10 minutes drive from the house. Trains to Wick come from Inverness, which is linked by rail to a number of cities and towns in the UK. The train journey from Inverness to Wick is a spectacular trip though some of Scotland's most remote countryside. The sleeper train from London to Inverness is a wonderful way to arrive, see firstscotrail.co.uk for details. There are also bus links to Wick from Inver...
