There is also a 9-hole golf course in the village and the renowned course of Brora is just 10 minutes’ drive away. Travel north to visit the Castle of Mey, John O’Groats and even the Orkney Isles.

Guest Comments

"We could not fault the accommodation and facilities at Sunrise - a beautiful house, kept spotlessly clean and with every facility we needed. The setting, uphill on the outskirts of Helmsdale provided 180 degree views, down to a small bay. We arrived amid a deep haar, but the next morning woke to sunshine burning through; the sunrises, for which the house is named, were memorable and a highlight of our stay. The owner had provided extensive information both for the house and places of interest in the area. We certainly hope to return."

"Sunrise Cottage is a beautiful house with the most amazing views. The house is really well equipped and is the cleanest holiday let I have ever arrived at. There are lovely walks straight from the house and it is in a great location to explore the east coast of the highlands. The WIFI signal got top marks from our teenage daughter. The views from the house are absolutely spectacular and the highlight of every day was sitting outside (or in the comfy chairs by the patio doors) with a glass of wine looking at the sea all evening."

"We had a wonderful holiday at Sunrise. The view from the house is breathtaking and it’s the most cosy and homely cottage we’ve ever stayed at. The garden was a paradise for our collie: fully secure so he could have lots of fun running after rabbits. Thanks Frank and Kathy for letting us stay and for all the helpful advice before and during our holiday. Can’t wait to be back!"
