>200 airbnb/trip advisor +ve comments over 12 years tells it all. Sea Otter Cottage and the separate Sea Shore Cottage, at an incredible location in Ackergill, just a mile from North Coast 500 route but <2 miles from Wick's supermarkets, gourmet restaurants and railway station. Open all year. We suggest: Fly Luton, Gatwick or Bristol ->Inverness then relax on ScotRail's Club 50s scenic "Far North Line" e.g. Fly 9.30-12, Rail 2-6pm. Total off season travel cost from £100 return!
“This place has it all. Fantastic views of the Sea. Additional blankets, towels, tea towels, bath robes and plenty of cutlery. Microwave, Electric hob and cooker, tumble dryer, heating, log fire. The property has a lived in homely feel and was perfect for our needs. If you want a relaxing time away from the city and gadgets this is the place to stay. I would include additional pictures of each room and its views as the photographs supplied don't give it the full justice it deserves. The decor is a little dated but who cares when you have views to die for.”

The village Smiddy now converted to a cosy and welcoming cottage with room for three plus a fourth on a fold up bed. Situated right on the Northcoast500 route it is ideal for a stopover or a full week’s self-catering holiday with the children with all the beautiful North coastline to explore!
“This was a great stop along the NC500! Everything we needed for a pleasant evening, and all the kitchen amenities for making a good breakfast in the morning. It was very homey. If you’re super picky about having a plush mattress then you might not be satisfied, but we aren’t and all had a restful night’s sleep.”
