Bed & Breakfast @ 4
Bed and Breakfast at 4 offers a superb town centre location in Thurso, Caithness, for both tourists and business people alike and there is a fine choice of bars and restaurants on the doorstep.
There are beautiful walks nearby along the river and esplanade. From the cliff tops of the esplanade, there are views over the port of Scrabster and the Orkney Isles.
The train station is a mere 10-minute walk, and there is a bus route which stops almost at the door.
There is a taxi rank 1 minutes walk along the road.
The ferry to Orkney departs from Scrabster, which is a 5-minute drive or bus journey away.
Cyclists, surfers etc are welcome and we have a secure shed to lock any bikes or equipment.
The bed and breakfast is a traditionally built town house which has recently been refurbished to provide you with warm, comfortable and relaxing accommodation. The rooms are all well appointed with en-suite facilities which include a fully pressurised shower. Guests also have use of a lounge which has a large flat screen TV and fridge. Free Wi-Fi is also available for your convenience.
Through the Highland Highlife card scheme, we can now offer our guests free access to the local swimming pool, sauna, and gym (the latter requires an induction/familiarisation course so will only benefit those staying for an extended duration, or who regularly return to the area).
Breakfast is served in our recently added light and spacious conservatory. Whenever possible we endeavour to use locally sourced produce and cater for all diet requirements.
My husband and I have spent time lovingly restoring this townhouse to a high standard, sympathetic to the period of the house. All rooms have good quality wooden furniture throughout.
One of the bedrooms has an original fireplace, and another has a large bathroom with free standing bath tub.
All en-suites have fully pressurised showers which leave you feeling refreshed and set up for the day.
ALL rooms have digital TV's, hairdryers and tea-trays.
THINGS TO DO
Caithness has a varied geography, providing lots to see and do particularly for those who love the outdoors. Why not investigate:
• the stunning coastline, from sandy beaches, rocky foreshores, steep cliffs and a wide variety of seabirds including puffins! Seals, porpoises and the occasionally the odd Orka has been spotted in our waters.
• Thurso's renowned rock breaks, which have hosted the O'Neill Coldwater Classic World Surf Competition.
• Day trips to the Orkney Isles. Visitors to Orkney can check out the ancient neolithical site of Scara Brae, or perhaps visit the famous Italian Chapel, or try the local ales or the renowned single malt, Highland Park.
• Other tourists spots include the Castle of Mey (the Late Queen Mothers holiday home), the Old Pulteney Distillery, Caithness Horizons or John O'Groats
Delightful hosts who were great to talk to and very helpful. Super clean accommodation with comfy beds. Wi-Fi worked really well and the cooked breakfast was amazing
