Sea Shore Cottage & the adjacent, but entirely separate Sea Otter Cottage, are at an incredible location in Ackergill Haven just a mile from the North Coast 500 route yet less than 2 miles from Wick's supermarkets, restaurants and railway station. Try "Sea Otter" on (Hidden by Airbnb) for information updates.

Sea Cottage is a wonderful, spacious homely apartment right on the sea shore with amazing views. Rupert has fitted it out well and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. I would certainly stay there again if fortunate enough to be in the area. Well recommended.
