We never even used the games room. Village an easy walk away and Wick is only 5 miles. lots of places to visit and see in the area and Orkney ferry just 20 minutes away. July 2011.

  13. The situation of the house was amazing, even though the weather was not good, to sit in the lounge and watch the sea and and the birds was great. We had our dog with us and he loved it. The large garden was completely safe when the gates were closed. The interior of the house was excellent, very well equipped even down to food and water dishes for the dog. We got a call from the owner a week before our visit and she was very friendly and told us everything we needed to know. We would definitley recommend this property for young families and older ones like us. June 2010.

We would definitely visit The Herons again through your company as everything was well organised & professional. Jan 2010.
