Helmsdale, Caithness and Sutherland, Scottish Highlands, Scotland
The Hoose is right on the Harbour at Helmsdale, in arguably the best location within the village, on a quiet no-through road within feet of the water's edge. Helmsdale is an easy drive up the A9 from Inverness (or you could get the train) has two pubs, shops, a bank, Library, Visitor Centre, the best fish and chips in the North and is well placed for Highland and Island exploration - though the view from the front door could keep you occupied for hours without moving an inch.

The Hoose has 3 double bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sitting room and a newly refurbished stunning modern kitchen/dining room/living room with amazing views of the harbour. There is a staircase in the living area of the kitchen which leads up to a 30ft playroom/study area which is a fabulous space for children to play in. This is awaiting carpeting which will be d...

The house was as good as it looks on the website. We rented it as additional accomodation for a family Christmas gathering but staying here turned out to be an excellent experience in its own right. Despite the wintery conditions, the house was warm and there was plentiful hot water for the excellent shower and luxurious bathroom. As a bonus,...

How to get there
Helmsdale is an easy drive up the A9 from Inverness. Follow the A9 from to Wick for approx. 70 miles, the roads are excellent but be careful as there is some twisty bends just before Golspie and Port Gower. The Hoose is right on the harbour in Helmsdale, on a quiet no-through road within feet of the water's edge.

Alternatively you can get the Train from Inverness to Wick calling at Helmsdale.
