Ocean View is perfectly positioned to take advantage of all that Caithness has to offer including Brough Bay which is only a 5 minute walk away with its resident seal colony and various nesting sea birds.
Dunnet Head is only a 2 min drive, or a pleasant 2 mile walk or cycle away, and has a viewpoint, magnificent cliffs with puffins and also a Stevenson lighthouse.
The famous village of John O'Groats is 12 miles away and is well worth a visit. Wildlife boat trips and day trips to Orkney are available from there during the Summer months.
The Castle of Mey is only 6 miles away and is an excellent visitor attraction with both the Castle and gardens being open to the public.
You may also be lucky and see the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) during your stay. Minimal light pollution and its northerly location make Ocean View an ideal place to see this amazing spectacle during the Winter months.
Ocean View is the perfect place to escape the stresses and strains of modern day living and fully immerse yourself in this truly stunning, wild yet unspoiled environment.
