“excellent house and location”
Reviewed 19 January 2014 for a stay in January 2014

stunning house, huge with plenty of space, some friends joined us during the week so was 7 of us and the house still felt huge which was great. under floor heating and 3 fires meant the house was always snug. Stunning walks along the coast and lots of tourists spots all within easy distance including ferry for the orkneys. All kitchen equipment provided.

dogs are welcome and mine loved it!

Village was very friendly and welcoming. Had a few storms which was amazing to watch from the house (not the best idea to look from the harbour as you may get washed away). Booking etc was easy and would happily recommend this house.

“Totes Amazeballs!!!”
Reviewed 17 November 2013 for a stay in November 2013

Stunning House in a beautiful Seaview location! The house is well equipped and the shower was to die for! Loved the roaring log fire. We just stayed for a weekend but wished it was longer. Perfect location to celebrate my friends 40th! the pictures online looked good but the real thing was even better and the views were 2nd to none!

“Spacious, Pampered, practical & high-class accommodation for 2+ dogs”
Reviewed 3 November 2013 for a stay in October 2013

As a well travelled visitor to Scotland's far flung places I was aware that a 10 day visit to Caithness in Oct was unlikely to be a stroll in the sun but more likely to provide more long lasting memorable moments/experiences. And so it was that after being blown North from Leeds for 9hrs by a SE'erly gale we made our dramatic arrival at our storm lashed venue with waves, spray & spume leaping over the harbour walls whilst the local's vessels lay snug in the inner sanctuary. For the next few days, from our sanctuary of Harbour House, we had a "Ring side seat" to see and feel the power of nature (A First.... seaweed on bedroom windows!!) whilst being able to retreat to the indoor luxuries so adequately described in previous reviews. From its situation next to the harbour it is clear that this was, & indeed, continues to be a very special building, in a special part of Britain..... maybe this contributes to one feeling, quickly, at one with the community..... from passing Hello's to the locals, to more lengthy chats with the man who caught the crabs, from the boat below the windows, that went into the sandwiches on sale in the village shop..... lovely. After the storm there was calm and an email enquiring about playing opportunities to the secretary of Wick Golf Club produced a prompt response which lead to an enjoyable round in the company of friendly locals who signed me in at guest rates, ...... bonus :-) From dog walks on the beach and woods to visiting the Orkneys to see buildings older than the pyramids at Scara Brae this area offers such diverse experiences/opportunities and all from, what can only be described as "An Iconic Property" Keiss Harbour House!!!

“Cosy, beautiful house with amazing view to the sea”
Reviewed 9 September 2013 for a stay in May 2013

10 of us stayed for two nights at the Harbour House. The property has a large, comfortable, freshly renovated cosy living room, which is perfect for socialising. The furniture are new, there are cards , board games and all the necessary tools provided, to let us forget that there were no internet connection.

The best part of the house is the layout of the rooms. All the bedrooms are located downstairs, separated from the social areas, keeping some peace for those who want to have some rest. We didn’t even feel that 10 of us were staying in the house, it was that huge.

The equipment of the kitchen is excellent. The size of the fridge is perfectly enough for storing plenty of food and the kitchen encourages the visitors to stay in and cook instead of going out.

The village itself it not that attractive, but Wick is close for shopping and most of the spectacles of this area easily accessible by car. The morning view from the harbour is priceless especially in clean weather.

“Great place to stay to explore Caithness”
Reviewed 28 April 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Brilliant location easy access and fabulous views, we had elderly relatives with us who enjoyed the space in the house and the great vistas from all windows, the dog enjoyed the freedom of the quiet setting and the beach walks. The house was well equiped and made our stay in the area very comfortable indeed.

“Ideal place for a get together! It was everything we wanted and more...”
Reviewed 18 March 2013 for a stay in March 2013

My friends and I are just back from a weekend in Keiss Harbour House. We came here to celebrate my sister's hen weekend. It was just perfect! The Friday night we chilled out in the sitting room after getting some treatments done. It was bliss. A beautiful cosy fire, comfy sofa, large tv, an ipod doc and a huge table to all eat around.
On the Saturday night we invited people to the house for a party and everyone was so impressed! The steam room & the large bath are fab along with a nice shower room upstairs. The kitchen was fully equiped with everything you need as were the bedrooms/sitting room.
We will definitely be returning again. We are just vexed that it books up so quickly!!

Thanks again Keiss Harbour House!!!
