- Wick, EnglandA fantastic conversion of a stable into a lovely, spacious holiday home for two people. The Stable has been cleverly converted to deliver brilliant open-plan accommodation for those holidaying in the far north of Scotland. The Stable is only a mile south from Wick just off the NC500. The minimum stay is three nights, but the accommodation and location suits longer stays. It would be a good choice to stay at The Stable for a week or more and explore the far north from a lovely base.
There’s so much to see and do in the local area, for example the coastal path between John O’Groats and Inverness is only a short stroll to the east of The Stable and this leads you beautifully into Wick via The Trinkie (seaside swimming pool!), Tinkers Cave and Telford’s amazing harbour. In Wick there are places to visit, including the historic Pulteney Distillery. You could of course keep walking north on the coastal path and see places near to Wick like Noss Head Lighthouse, Castle Sinclair, Ackergill Tower and Reiss Sands. But these along with more sites like Keiss Castle and Harbour, and Duncansby Head can be easily reached by car from The Stable en-route to your inevitable trip to John O’Groats.
From The Stable it’s highly recommended that you take a trip to Orkney from Gills Bay, which is a cheaper and quicker ferry than that from Scrabster. Near to Gill’s Bay to the west you have another place you must visit, Dunnet Head and Beach. The Castle of Mey in the summer is also worth visiting. The list of places to visit goes on and on, which is why a base in this far north east location is needed. And you can go quite far by car south and west, as well via the interior roads, to really see this magnificent part of Scotland.
The NC500 is your friend, because it efficiently guides you to the majority of the best places in the far north. Its owners live on the same croft and you can be sure of a fine welcome and unrivalled Highland hospitality. It’s an uplifting, friendly and wholly lovely place to spend a holiday.£78From price per night based on 7 night stay
