A warm Highland welcome awaits you at The Auld Post Office B & B. Quietly situated on the main A9 route north, just a ten minute drive before reaching Thurso and fifteen minutes from Wick.
The Auld Post Office is a relaxed and friendly B&B nestled on the edge of woodland, in a central location between Thurso and Wick. A peaceful haven in which to relax and unwind and perfectly situated for a tour of the Northern Highlands, famed for its dramatic and rugged coastline, sandy beaches, shimmering lochs and heather moorland. The area is rich too in archaeological remains with some of the best surviving brochs and chambered cairns. The sweeping coastline from Dunnet Head, the most northerly headland to the great sea stacks at Duncansby, are a bird watcher's paradise.
There are two ensuite guest rooms, each have French doors inviting you to the patio and gardens beyond. The guest rooms are decorated in a blend of Art Deco and contemporary styles. A separate Annex Suite includes a comfy sitting room, with a reclining leather sofa by the wood burning stove and a Twin or Superking ensuite bedroom.
A leisurely, locally sourced hearty breakfast is served in the dining room with distant views across the moors. We'll toss a log or two on the stove if there's a chill in the air. Delicious eggs are from the rare breed hens in the secluded gardens. A haven for wildlife where the planting has been carefully chosen to encourage birds, bees and butterflies and you may see a roe deer in the woodland.
The Auld Post Office is in a perfect location to explore the beautiful county of Caithness, where the air is fresh and the walking is splendid. Close to salmon and trout filled lochs, three links golf courses, horse riding and clay pidgeon shooting can be arranged nearby. Quality restaurants are just a short drive in both Halkirk and Watten, as well as numerous bars and restaurants in both Thurso and Wick. We are happy to make a reservation for you.
Whatever your plans are for the day, our promise to you is that you will have a quiet and comfortable night in our Highland B & B.
We are proud to be members of Scotland's Best B & B's, and very much look forward to the opportunity to welcome you to our home.
