Guest Comments

"We had a great time at John O'Groats Mill Cottage,enjoying nature,wildlife and trip to Orkney islands."

Sandra, August 2021

"Charming cottage in a quiet rural locality with friendly and welcoming owners, highly recommended."

Gary , November 2020

"We loved our stay here. Loved the view of the sea from the living area window It was well equipped except no freezer in the fridge and no dvd player or WiFi. So a good place for reading books! There are lovely walks, wee souvenir shops, the local pub (in the Seaview hotel) where the food was delicious, very generous portions too, all within walking distance. We would definitely recommend and hope to stay again."

Claire, October 2020

"Lovely cottage with stunning views, myself and my family enjoyed staying here, Would have stayed longer if we'd had more time of work, it created a comfortable and great base for us The lady who owned the cottage was lovely and it was interesting to hear about the history of the mill itself"
