SITUATION
Stain Croft lies close to the village of South Keiss near Wick in Caithness. The property is in a stunning setting, just above the spectacular sandy beach at Sinclairs Bay which follows the coast to Keiss village in the north and Noss Head lighthouse in the south.

This beautiful and dramatic Caithness coastline sits against a backdrop of spectacular mountain scenery, home to a wide variety of native wildlife and providing ideal hill walking and climbing. Wick has a good range of shops and facilities including schooling up to secondary level, North Highland College, supermarkets, a railway station and a hospital. Wick Airport lies just outside the town and has regular flights to Aberdeen and Edinburgh. The North Coast 500 www.northcoast500.com is an initiative designed to develop economic growth across the North Highlands. The route has been enormously successful, attracting tourists from all over the world bringing with them a demand for goods and services.

DESCRIPTION
The current owners purchased the property in 1969 and completely renovated the cottage, bringing-in services and incorporating the barns at either end of the dwelling. The property has been well-maintained and, although in need of further modernisation,
has charming and characterful accommodation retaining many original features. Recent
work includes the installation of a replacement hot water tank, installation of a new wood/coal burning stove, new night storage heaters and repainting the exterior.
