    How to get there
    Airport: John O' Groats Wick Airport: 25.0 km
    Railway: Wick or Thurso: 25.0 km
    Ferry: Gills Bay: 1.6 km
    By car: Follow the A9 north, then take the A99 from Wick following the signs for John O'Groats and the Gills Bay Ferry. This does involve a right turn a few miles out of Wick in the village of Reiss. After approximately 16 miles of being on the A99, you need to take a left turn sign posted “Canisbay 3 miles”.
    This is a single track road with passing places and after about 2 miles you turn right, this is again signposted “Canisbay”. Follow this road and shortly after you enter the village and the 30mph signs there is a left turn. Go to the end of this road at which point you should have the white Canisbay Church in front of you.

    Turn left (A836) and when you have passed two white houses on the right take the next left which is the road to the croft. It's on a bit of a bend s...

Our first visit to the the very north of Scotland, and we loved every minute of it. The peace and quiet - just the sheep, birds and (occasionally) the wind for company - made it a real haven for 2 weeks, which seemed to last much longer than normal. The cottage was everything we hoped for, cosy, comfortable, spacious and... more

5 of 5 stars Reviewed 29 June 2014 for a stay in June 2014

We stayed here for 1 week in June. The cottage was very easy to find using the directions provided by Sarah, the cottage owner. It is well set back from the main road and surrounded by fields. This made our stay very peaceful and quiet. The cottage itself is a good size and fully equipped with everything you could possibly... more

We have now visited Firthview twice in the last 6 months and are going back up again in 5 months. The cottage is lovely. Well equipped, nice and cosy and ideally placed for a relaxing holiday. Lots to do nearby and our 2 kids love it. Can't wait until we are back!!! more
