More information about Hill House

Property information

Hill House is a spacious and extremely comfortable 4 bedroomed house which has been furnished and equipped with good quality fittings and high end linens etc. This ensures a perfect home from home in a quality holiday house. Whilst ideal for families with its games room and outdoor activities, it is also a tranquil and relaxing home for those adults looking for that added special comfort. All bedrooms, including the single bedroom, are well appointed, attractive and meticulously maintained. The house sits in a 1/2 acre garden which has been fenced, walled and gated to prevent escapees of the 2 or 4 footed variety! For those unfamiliar with this Northern county, Caithness is a truly under-visited corner of Scotland which, once found, astonishes all in it's atmospheric beauty and tranquil, other-worldy nature. So unspoilt that much archeology is still so prominently visible and the names so evocative of the Vikings that those with an interest in this aspect of our history will love being immersed in so many reminders. Star gazers will, if booking in winter, have the opportunity of perhaps seeing the Northern Lights which can be spectacular so far north. But even if the 'Mirry Dancers' are dancing elsewhere, the blackness of the night, without light pollution, allows for a stunning display of stars, the Milky Way and the occasional display of meteor showers. It will be possible, from Hill House, to visit the most North Westerly point of the Scottish mainland, Cape Wrath, and the most North Easterly - John O'Groats - in the same day! Whatever you decide to do - travel around this fabulous county or stay put at Hill House, we are sure you will return with wonderful memories of Caithness, its people and fascinating landscape.
