The location is inspiring with open countryside and stunning views in all directions.
There are a number of small villages in the vicinity and Thurso is the area’s principle settlement. Thurso, approximately 14 miles west of Creag Na Mara provides local amenities and services to a large catchment area and offers shops, restaurants, supermarkets, a leisure centre as well as schools and a college. Thurso has a mainline station providing services to Inverness and is also the starting point of the A9 which provides direct access to central Scotland. Airport facilities are also available at Wick.
Many tourists and general visitors are drawn to this area of Scotland and as such Creag Na Mara operates throughout the year. The area is extremely popular amongst those touring northern Scotland and visiting the iconic John O’Groats, a mere 5 miles from the property. Popular local attractions nearby include the Castle of Mey and Dunnet Head Peninsula. The business also reaps the full reward of its proximity to Gill’s Bay ferry terminal, Scrabster terminal and the passenger ferry at John O’Groats.
