More information about Wheelhouse Cottage

Property information

Wheelhouse Cottage is located near the seafront of the picturesque village of Portmahomack; originally a fishing village, with a picture perfect harbour, there are now just a few fishing boats working but fishermen can sometimes be seen checking their creels. This scenic village commands spectacular views across the Dornoch Firth, the Sutherland hills and beyond. One of a group of four cottages, sitting in a row with large windows onto the sea, Wheelhouse Cottage has its own private fenced-in patio and shared use of a large lawn, fully enclosed by a boundary wall. These cottages are just a short walk from a sandy beach, an excellent restaurant. There is a post office, general store and an award-winning museum. Portmahomack has a golf course which is walking distance from the cottage.

As well as the local shop, just a few miles away is Tain which has two large supermarkets, both of which deliver to the cottages. However there are also excellent, small, independent suppliers and delivery services such as a fresh fish van which calls weekly.

From Portmahomack, there are coastal walks along the shoreline to the village of Hilton. The terrain is fairly flat and easy to follow for roughly six miles. Alternatively, walk to Tarbat Ness Lighthouse which, painted with wide red and white stripes, is the third tallest in Britain. It warns sailors, with its flashing light, of the rocky promontory around this area. Tarbat Ness has a dramatic history including an important 11th century Battle of Tarbat Ness when Thorfinn the Mighty (of Orkney) defeated Karl Hundason (thought to be King MacBeth) to claim Caithness and Ross.

These cottages bow to a startlingly beautiful panorama of the sea and hills and the sunsets are magnificent. Ideal for relaxing on a summer’s eve, taking in the view as the barbecue sizzles and the light dances, ever changing across the expanse of the Dornoch Firth.

The other three cottages, also featured on this website, are Starboard Cottage, Port Cottage and Sea Room Cottage – so families wishing to holiday together, but to have their own cottage can do so. Looking at the cottages from the sea, left to right, the sequence of cottages is Starboard, Wheelhouse, Sea Room and Port Cottages. Wheelhouse is the third cottage along from the village and is in-between Sea Room and Starboard.

Visitor comments

  • Julie and chris Hopkins
    We stayed at Wheelhouse cottage in September 2017 and had a great week. The cottage is in a fantastic location with an ever changing view across over the sea. It is very private and wonderfully quiet loads of bird life and seals, and you dont have to go out in a car as there are so many walks from the cottage, but if you want to venture out the location is perfect for exploring the highlands. The cottage is immaculately clean and has everything you need with great helpful friendly owners. Our dog was spoilt with the great walks and swimming in the sea. Great house and location , thank you.
