Burnside Cottage is located just off the NC500 in Gills, Canisbay, a scattered former crofting and fishing township on the far north east coast of Scotland. Gills bay overlooks Stroma and the Orkney islands.
John O’Groats is close to the east & the Castle of Mey is 4 miles to the west. We are situated approximately half way between Wick & Thurso & are conveniently located for those travelling to the Orkneys as the Pentland Ferry harbour is around ½ a mile. The nearest airport is 17 miles away in Wick.
Big skies, rugged cliffs, spectacular sea-stacks, mysterious moors, long summer nights……these are just some of the natural features that give Caithness its special appeal. These are the lowlands beyond the Highlands, a county described by its most literary son, Neil Gunn, as “The land of exquisite lights”.
