The Hawthorns Bed and Breakfast

A Bed and Breakfast in Caithness

Photo - The Hawthorns Bed and Breakfast

Just a short walk from the Castle of Mey and adjoining the Mey Games Field, site of the traditional Highland Games in August, we offer spacious accommodation and stunning views across open countryside towards the cliffs of Dunnet Head ( Britain's most northerly mainland point).
With the ferry to Orkney just 3 miles along the road, and John o'Groats 6 miles, we are ideally placed for exploring the Islands or starting or finishing your end-2-end adventure! Some of the nearby attractions include the wonderful Duncansbay Head, where you can see sea birds, seals and also the occasional orca passing by! Just a few miles down the road is the Caithness Distillery, where they make their own gin and vodka.
We offer a selection of breakfast options from a simple continental style to full cooked Scottish breakfast to a more decadent smoked salmon and scrambled eggs, all prepared fresh to order.
It is a very short walk to the local pub/hotel, who serve excellent evening meals.
We have drying facilities for walkers, cyclists, or guests unlucky enough to be caught out by the Scottish weather! Guests who have been away from home for some time, may wish to use our laundry facilities too.
Ample private parking and a shed to store cycles... and if you need any thing else to make your stay perfect, please just ask!

The Private House Stay's Guide

Caithness

Caithness in the far North of Scotland is certainly full of wonders. The drive North on the A9 takes in some breathtaking scenery into a land littered with ancient archaeological remains and wide open spaces. You get more time to appreciate the things to see around you if you come to stay here a while and visit the local landmarks and attractions such as the Whailgoe Steps. Its peaceful and beautiful and you get frequent exposure to the Orcas and puffins of the coast in their thousands as well as views of the stunning Northern Lights
