The cottage is set in the scenic Strath Halladale and close to the Forsinard Flows, which is part of a vast expanse of beautiful heathland, sheltered straths and mountains known as the Flow Country. The Flow Country is one of Scotlands most important natural treasures with land that is rich in wading birds and plant life, the RSPB looks after more than 21,000 hectares of it. Craigton Cottage is 6 miles south of the NC500 route and the north coast of Scotland.
Caithness and Sutherland have varied scenery from cliffs, lonely moorland, remote sandy beaches and clear blue waters and superb panoramic views. There are many and various opportunities to engage with the outdoors such as fantastic river walks, hillwalking, on and off road cycling, fishing of all varieties for trout, salmon and beach and boat sea fishing. The area is well known for its surfing. The roads are great, well suited for motorcycling and enjoying being behind the wheel of a car too. The town of Thurso is approx 25 minutes away, where there are a variety of shops, including three supermarkets. The doctors surgery is at Armadale, 20 easy minutes away. A glorious and friendly place to live!
