Skerry cottage is a beautifully renovated lighthousekeeper's cottage at the base of Buchan ness lighthouse, the most north-easterly point in Scotland.
Buchan Ness lighthouse was built by Robert Stevenson, and is one of the few remaining working lighthouses in Scotland.
Skerry cottage has a bright ,airy galley kitchen, with cooker, grill, fridge, microwave, and coffee- maker.The kitchen table seats 4 comfortably.Great place to sit out and have your morning coffee, and also to sit in the evening, with perhaps a glass of wine, to watch the lighthouse beams revolving slowly above your head.
The kitchen door leads onto a decking area which faces east, where the sun rises over the sea and rocks.

If you are looking for a quiet get away, then this place is it. Its a lovely spot along side a quiet village with lovely views.The cottage has all you need for self catering including a solid fuel fire for cosy moments. There are pathways for walking nearby but we didn't get that far. If you are looking for places to go nearby there isn't much to visit without travelling some miles.

Thank you so much for this positive review. Hope to see you again !

We stayed in Skerry Cottage for 2 nights on the 25th October, what a gem we found! The cottage itself is beautiful and had the most outstanding views (especially the view from the kitchen). We were greeted with a warm welcome from the owners upon arrival who showed us around the cottage and gave us some tips for things to do nearby.
