The Lighthouse Keeper's Cottage was built about 60 years ago for Principal Lightkeeper and his family. Other buildings in the compound are Noss Head lighthouse, an engine room and stable block, and our neighbours in the Occasional Keeper’s Cabin next door and in the 19th Century cottage by the Lighthouse.
The Lighthouse Keeper’s Cottage has 3 bedrooms and up to 6 people can stay at any time of year. Two of the bedrooms can be set up as doubles or twins, and the third bedroom has two large bunks for children or adults.
FOR FAMILIES OR GROUPS
We have a well-equipped kitchen, a family room with large table for eating or playing games, and a living room. There is one bathroom with a toilet, bath and shower. We also have comfortable parking for two cars outside. The cottage has free wifi, a TV and Freeview.
STAYING WITH US
Change-over days are Mondays and Fridays so you can book a long holiday, just a weekend or a midweek break. Our bookings calendar calculates prices automatically based on the dates you choose.
Noss Head is surrounded by water on three sides but is just three miles from Wick. It is a haven for birds, wildflowers and other wildlife and the cottage is walking distance from the ruined Castle Sinclair Girnigoe and the almost hidden Sandigoe Beach.
Noss Head makes a perfect base for exploring the eastern leg of the North Coast 500, with John o'Groats just 20 miles away to the North and Inverness a day trip away to the south. There are castles, brochs and beaches to visit and you can take boat trips to watch the wildlife at sea, or just walk out of the cottage for bird-watching on land.
