I spent several days at Graeme and Eileen's lovely home this past September 2016. The setting is peaceful and comforting. The home (and room) were nicely furnished and the breakfasts were excellent. But further, the hosts were genial and very welcoming

The house is located on the western edge of the small village of Mey on the main road. Our room was on the ground floor with a great view across adjacent fields to distant hills. The room was clean with modern furnishings and a practical walk-in wet room. The bed was large and comfortable and the wifi worked well. Great... More

Walking into someone else's home and feeling it's your own. So warm, so comfortable, so embracing, so pretty. A lovely welcome from Graeme and Eilean (and the delicious Molly!) was a great start to this weekend, and our stay was just the experience we were looking for. We love Caithness, and we were eating out in John o' Groats as... More

My partner and I stayed with Graeme and Eilean for two nights. They are both most hospitable. A room that is quite spacious and great to relax in. A nearby pub recommendation was really good, particularly as we booked the previous night (and returned home safely with the supplied torch as we walked on the dark night road). Small details...

We were pleased with our large room with good lighting, and a small bathroom with shower and every amenity imaginable including a heated towel rack. There was a lovely sitting room with a large TV, comfy couch and fireplace. The full Scottish breakfast in the bright dining room included a wide selection of delicious offerings, even haggis if you want... More

The place is very near to the embarcadero to Orkneys (remember to book the ferry and the tour in advance). Very large and clean room. The breakfast is wonderful and the people are very kind. Carpark Included. Suggested!

After camping in the wind and rain for a couple of nights this was our oasis. Beautiful room and spotlessly clean. Owners made us very welcome with loads of extras in the room. They were both very helpful in helping us find somewhere nice to eat in the village and their own food was lovely .

Stayed for ten nights in July, lovely welcome from the hosts. Rooms are large, well set out and very clean. Breakfast was excellent, freshly cooked to order every morning. I can't find any fault at all, thoroughly recommend staying here if visiting the area.

We stayed here for 1 night whilst following the North Coast 500 and what a great choice it was. We were greeted warmley by the owners then shown to our room forvthe night. To say we were blown away by the size of the room would be understating the fact. The room was not only large, and on the ground... More
