We stayed here for an entire two-month sabbatical in July and August. The views are unparalleled--fields, hills, the ocean, and LOTS of sheep. The house itself is no-frills but comfortable, with two full bathrooms, a sun room, and a living room with fireplace. The host...More

Fairburn is a cosy 3 bedroom cottage, spotlessly clean, with every amenity including a washing machine, dishwasher and heating - absolutely nothing to fault. It is close the Scottish Highlands and the Orkney Islands. We were spoilt for choice of beautiful golf courses. It is...More

About the neighbourhood
There is plenty of fishing available nearby. There is the whisky distillery 'Clynelish' in Brora which offers tours for those who like to indulge in a 'wee dram'. The fantastic sandy beaches on this part of the Moray Firth stretch for miles and are generally quiet and a great place to walk. There is lots of history. For example there is the Timespan museum in Helmsdale, Dunrobin Castle and Grounds/Falconry in Golspie. Further north is the gateway to the Orkneys and the interesting towns of Thurso and Wick in Caithness. Inverness is a very lively city just over an hour to the south with lots to see and do.
