Holiday Cottages North Coasts and Orkney Islands

The Far North Scottish Coast is almost unheard of by some. But for those in the know or simply seeking the great escape from the hassles and bustle of 21’st century life, this is the place to escape too. It offers spectacular Mountain ranges to the North West and 100’s of Coastal castles / fortresses and places of historical interest. Some of Europe’s finest sandy beaches including Dunnet Bay and Melvich are found on the North Coast. The Far North Coast also offers a great chance of seeing the Northern Lights and you could easily spend a month exploring the delights of at least some of the 70 Islands making up the Orcadian Arcapeligo.
