Close to the village of John O' Groats and on the North Coast 500, the Old Smiddy (an old blacksmith's cottage) has been beautifully restored into a modern home, while keeping many of its original features.

The cottage sleeps 4 people in 2 double bedrooms (both en-suite) and has a fold-away camp bed for use by a small child. The cottage offers beautiful sea views across the Pentland Firth to the Orkney Islands and is the perfect base for exploring Caithness, Sutherland and Orkney.

The space
The Old Smiddy has recently been restored into a beautiful modern cottage. The property has a small porch, lobby, an airy living/dining and kitchen area, and two bedrooms, both en-suite. There is a fold-away camp bed available for use by a small child in addition to the two double bedrooms.

Huna is situated 2 miles from the village of John O'Groats in a peaceful rural area with stunning sea views. The Old Smiddy is the perfect base to explore the local scenery, wildlife and tourist attractions around Caithness, Sutherland and the Orkney Islands.

In John O' Groats itself, you will find a local hotel/pub, a shop, post office and filling station, as well as gift shops and cafes. In the summer months, a passenger ferry runs from John O' Groats to the Orkney Islands. Gills Bay, 2 miles away from the cottage, has a car ferry over to the Orkney Islands that runs all year round.
