The Inn at John O’Groats

Self Catering

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.

    Natural Retreats have launched ‘The Inn at John O’Groats’ following the restoration of the iconic former John O’Groats Hotel, as part of Natural Retreats’ multi-million pound regeneration of this stunningly picturesque natural wilderness in Caithness in the North of Scotland.

    Over the last two years the hotel has been lovingly restored and a new Norse style extension added which provides a dramatic splash of colour against the coastal landscape. The interior combines high quality old and new styling in keeping with the marriage of the historic former hotel and the eye catching new extension.

    The Inn boasts bespoke self-catering apartments with 1, 2 or 4 bedrooms, each offering its own individual character and with all of the high quality facilities and luxuries you would expect from Natural Retreats.

    All of the apartments feature modern kitchen/living areas, stylish bedrooms and bathrooms and a variety of vantage points from which to enjoy far-reaching views of the dramatic John O’Groats coastal scenery across the Pentland Firth onto Stroma and the Orkneys, some of the most breath-taking coastal views in Scotland. West facing rooms are treated to spectacular sunset views.

    As with all Natural Retreats properties, the Inn at John O’Groats has been sensitively developed keeping sustainability top of mind. Local craftsmen using locally sourced materials, such as Caithness stone and Scottish Larch timber, have been used wherever possible.
