Strathy Point Lighthouse is situated in a dramatic location on the end of a promontory on the stunning north coast of Scotland. The Principal Lighthouse Keeper’s Cottage forms part of the main building and enjoys unbelievable and uninterrupted seascape views all round. Overlooking the wild Atlantic Ocean, the lighthouse is no longer in use, but the surrounding hills, lochs, cliffs and rocky outcrops provide a wonderful location for walking, sea fishing, wildlife watching and just enjoying the spectacular and ever-changing seascapes that this totally unspoilt, wild and dramatic landscape offers.

The Principal Lighthouse Keeper’s Cottage is accessed via its own original entrance, which leads into the hallway and through to the accommodation, which is all on one level. The living room is bright and attractive, with high ceilings, deep silled windows and a leather suite. The kitchen/dining room enjoys amazing views across the grassy cliffs and out across the Atlantic Ocean. There are two double bedrooms and a single bedroom, all attractively presented. A second living room or snug provides an ideal space for a quiet read or to sit and enjoy a glass of wine in the rugged beauty of the surroundings. There is a contemporary, fully tiled bathroom and a separate cloakroom.

The immediate surroundings are a haven for wildlife. Dolphins, whales, porpoises, seals and otters all frequent this shoreline. There are numerous seabirds and wonderful and rare wild flowers in the grassy slopes, which have been cropped close by the local sheep. Nature lovers will be spoilt for choice. There is also a colony of puffins at nearby Melvich. The village of Strathy is just 2 miles away where you will find a pub, café and a beautiful sandy beach. The adjoining village of Melvich provides further facilities including a shop and small restaurant. The main coast road forms part of the renowned North Coast 500 route, which passes through some of the most spectacular scenery to be found anywhere in the UK. The thriving town of Thurso is just 20 minutes’ drive away with a very good selection of shops, pubs, restaurants and supermarkets. There are numerous places of interest in the vicinity, including historical sites, castles, stunning beaches and a wide variety of sports and pastimes, including kayaking, horse riding, sailing, golf and fishing (sea fishing is free, directly off the rocks down below the lighthouse). Beach 2 miles. Shop 5 miles, pub and restaurant 2 miles.

Principal Lighthouse Keeper’s Cottage can be booked together with South Keeper’s Cottage (ref UK30065) to accommodate up to 10 guests.
