A beautiful and remote location, with panoramic views over to Orkney. Lucky to be there on a warm, sunny day and even got an ice cream from the mobile van! Living at the lighthouse in the day would have been challenging, but its a stunning place and a nice easy walk around the hillside

We didn't visit the light tower, but we did a part of the trail. From Sinclair Castle to Staxigoe. Very beautiful walk and al lot of seals which were resting.

Very beautiful place! The wind was crazy but it definitely worth it. The views were amazing and you can find a lot of ornithologists taking pictures the birds!

We arrived at 2, Keepers cottage on 16 Feb having booked for 3 nights. The kitchen was very dirty and there was a mouse infestation in the kitchen with food that had been left on the shelves eaten through and droppings across the floor. I contacted the owner but no reply and still no reply by the following day. We had to source alternative accommodation as the place was too squalid to cook and store food in.

This is unbelievable. No. 2 keepers cottage dunnet head - state of kitchen appalling - oven greased up and mouse infestation - couldn’t stay there - but we’ve been charged £855 for 3 nights even tho the website states £555 - oh yes and no reply from owners all day. What’s going on? Just don’t book this!

Well maintained lighthouse, pretty to see with moody coastal weather.

Well worth a drive up to Dunnet Head for a little pit stop before driving on.

Easy parking.

I cycled to this site and loved the route out and back. The climb was worth the view of the Orkneys at the end of it but 15 mins at the site was enough to take in the experience. It was my second visit and I would do it again in a year or so.
