John O Groats, Wick, Caithness, KW1 4YR

    Natural Retreats John O'Groats is situated in a tiny hamlet set amongst some of the most sensational and extreme landscapes combining awe-inspiring coastal stacks, dramatic cliffs and forests.

    Making the most of its magnificent setting, Natural Retreats John O'Groats offers a range of luxury accommodation with breath-taking views. Three bedroomed, eco-friendly wooden lodges are dotted along the coast and have spectacular views across the Pentland Firth to the picturesque Orkney Islands. Here, stunning floor to ceiling windows bring the outside in, whilst the modern, open-plan living, dining and kitchen areas create a stylish feel. With exceptional attention to detail, the lodges have locally-sourced Caithness stone feature walls, wood burning stoves, designer wooden furniture and private outdoor seating areas. 

    For further accommodation there is also the beautifully restored 19th century inn with a colourful contemporary extension. Combining traditional features with the vibrancy of a new build, The Inn oozes understated luxury and offers charming one, two and four bedroom apartments. While each has its own unique design, the apartments each boast inspiring views over the dramatic Scottish landscape with sleek, designer touches. Regal armchairs can be found sitting beside wood-burning stoves, luxury beds can be found beneath traditional vaulted wood ceilings and lights can be found hanging from natural weaved ropes. 

    With the spectacular views from your luxury accommodation it is almost impossible not to be allured into the array of natural splendours around you. See killer whales in their natural habitat, catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights or discover your inner Indiana Jones with a spot of real-life treasure hunting; all right here in the UK at the most northerly tip of Scotland, John O'Groats.

    John O'Groats is blessed with some of the finest wildlife in the UK, from orca and minke whales to seals and dolphins. Just a stone's throw away from the largest RSPB reserve in Britain, the region is also rich in birdlife, including guillemot, kittiwakes and most famously, puffin. A guided walk can show you the best of the dramatic coastline and wild Dunnet Forest while an exhilarating boat trip can introduce you to some of the exceptional local wildlife.
