Discover our magical little bothy in Strathy Lighthouse.

Enjoy stunning uninterrupted sea views while sipping on your morning coffee from this cosy studio apartment. The lighthouse is out of use, but is surrounded by dramatic coastal scenery that provides a wonderful setting for walking, wildlife watching, sea fishing and Northern light spotting. Situated in a tranquil rural setting 4 miles off the NC500, this comfortable retreat is the ideal place to relax, unwind and recharge.

The space
The studio is small but perfectly formed with all mod cons for an ideal short stay.

We fully understand the need for a good nights sleep and have a wonderful Eve mattress on a double bed for you to rest your weary head at night with a king sized duvet and lovely Eco Organic Cotton sheets to keep you warm and cosy.

There is a small, fully-equipped kitchen for you to prepare your meals. We provide the basics such as tea, coffee, sugar and olive oil so you don’t have to try and remember it all!

Facilities include free Wi-Fi, flat screen smart LED television (ariels do not survive on the Lighthouse so there is no terrestrial TV) , gas hob, electric mini oven, fridge/freezer, kettle, toaster, iron & (mini) ironing board, hairdryer, shower (no bath), Organic cotton linen, towels and eco friendly soap.

There are East facing patio doors that have direct sea and sunrise views. Additionally, we provide two camping chairs so you can watch the sea from wherever you choose. The sunsets from the West side of the Lighthouse can be spectacular!

Due to the space being so small it really is only suitable for two people. Unfortunately we cannot accept your human or fur babies. The surrounding cliffs are un-fenced and can be dangerous. Care must be taken at all times.

We are mindful of our environmental impact so we use eco friendly cleaning products, reuse and repair what we can, recycle, compost and source items locally where possible.

Where you’ll be

Strathy, Scotland, United Kingdom

You don't visit Strathy for the wild nightlife! The apartment is located very rurally (which is one of the things we love about it). There are places to eat / drink 10-20mins drive away (Srathy Inn, Melvich Hotel and Bettyhill hotel) and the villages of Melvich and Bettyhill have small village shops for your basic requirements. Thurso is 25miles away, where you can find a selection of restaurants, bars,supermarkets and other shops or hop on the ferry to Orkney for the day! Tesco deliver to the Lighthouse (you would need to be in to accept this as we do not live on site).

We love everything that Scotland has to offer (even the weather.... but maybe not the midgies)! Both of us enjoy yoga, the outdoors, and of course - surfing! We always have lots of different projects on the go and now we have a toddler and crazy dog that keep us on our toes.
