Holiday Rental House
Keepers Cottage offers accommodation in Forsinain, 16.2 miles from Thurso. The property is 29.2 miles from John O Groats and features views of the river. This is an amazing opportunity to escape from the citty buzz to remote location in the middle of nowhere. At night time it will become pitch black and it is so quite that you can hear the deers rutting. The oven completes the coziness factor while you are sitting on the very comfortable couch watching telly on the massive flat screen. The cottage is equipped with all the necessary cooking things and it is a pleasing experience to cook with a real fire. The facilities are all quite modern and comfortable. Free private parking is available on site. Towels and bed linen are offered in this self-catering accommodation.

Loved this little cottage. It was clean and comfortable with all you need. No where near people or shops, and the only sound, apart from pure nature, is the occasional two carriage train. This is a wonderful place to recharge your batteries. Lots of lovely...More

About the neighbourhood
It is possibly the remotest place in the UK, perfect for those who are looking to escape from the city buzz. Perfect for hiking and relaxation.
Getting around
If you are traveling from Inverness by train then you must let the conductor know that it is a request stop at Altnabreac. From Altnabreac you can also get to Thurso and Wick. You must let us know if you are planning to arrive by train so we can pick you up and escort to the cottage.
