Reload this mapWeydale Farm Cottage is a detached farm cottage situated on the owner's 140 acre farm, with rare breed sheep grazing nearby and open views across the fields to the mountains beyond. The cottage has recently undergone extensive renovation and refurbishment. This traditional farm cottage, with its wood lined walls, local flag stone kitchen floors and deep silled windows now provides attractive, homely accommodation in a very quiet setting.
- Approached via a 3/4 mile traditional stone road, Weydale Farm Cottage has no near neighbours and offers a real sense of space, with a 'get away from it all' feel to it.
- The large lounge, with traditional tongue and groove wood panelling has soft leather sofas and chairs.
- The farmhouse kitchen/dining room is very spacious and the bright, modern bathroom and two beautifully colour coordinated bedrooms add to its warm welcoming ambience.
- Whilst it is in a country setting, the cottage benefits from all the amenities and facilities of Thurso, which is only 2.5 mile away.
Weydale Farm Cottage
- Built by the Vikings and added to over the centuries the historic town of Thurso now offers visitors a fascinating mix of ancient and modern. The new Caithness Horizons visitor centre is well worth a visit.
- Local facilities also include a swimming pool, leisure centre, cinema, boating lake, quad biking, sailing and a good selection of shops, pubs, cafes and restaurants.
- There is a wealth of historic and ancient monuments throughout the region. The fairy tale Castle of Mey, beautifully restored by the late Queen Mother is a must. This most northerly castle in the British Isles has a fascinating history and the gardens are simply stunning.
- The local archaeological trail provides an interesting glimpse into the history of times past and brochs, cairns and ancient sites abound.
- Take a day trip to the Orkney Isles and explore Neolithic villages, standing stones, Scapa Flow and the amazing Italian chapel built by prisoners during the Second World War.
- The area is also renowned for its bird and sea life. Great Skua, otters, seals, dolphins and whales are all seen in and around the north and north west coast. At Melvich just along the coast there is also a colony of puffins and at Forinard, Strath Halladale, there is an RSPB nature reserve, where local rangers will take visitors to explore the bird life, flora and fauna of the area. A superb boat trip runs from John O' Groats to encounter the sea life close to hand and to explore this fascinating coastline from a different perspective.
- Superb wide sandy beaches, dramatic cliffs, small bays and pretty fishing villages all add to the magic of this distinctive and unexplored part of Scotland.
- There is a wide variety of sports and activities close by. The renowned surfing beach at Dunnet, just a few miles away, is host to the world championship surfing competition. There are many excellent golf courses in the region, together with horse riding, sailing and cycling - the number 1 cycle route runs past the end of the farm track and the quiet local roads and trails are ideal for this. Dunnet forest also has miles of horse riding and off road mountain bike trails for all ages and abilities.
