Greenland Cottage is an investment property tucked behind Greenland House in the popular village of Castletown in Caithness. The property was built in 2007 to a high specification which is evident on inspection. The hardwood oak flooring, and oak joinery throughout along with the attractive fixtures and fittings make this a superb letting property with no shortage of tenants. The current tenant has been in the property for some time and is quite content to remain, however if new owners wish, the relocation will not be an issue.
Greenland Cottage can be accessed via its own separate entrance from the main road. This unassuming property is an excellent living space and would also make a fabulous family home. Access through the front door leads into a long corridor, with a spacious bedroom immediately to the left and another to the right. Along the hall and to the right is a double bedroom, next is the family bathroom which is fully tiled with excellent quality fittings. Across from the bathroom is the master bedroom which has an en-suite shower room, in a ‘jack and jill’ formation allowing private access from bedroom 2 also. An attractive feature of this property is the spacious lounge, which is bright and airy, containing a feature wood-burning stove with patio doors leading to an area of decking with views to the garden. The kitchen leads from the lounge and is fully fitted, there is space in the lounge for a dining table, as well as al fresco dining on the decking.

The village of Castletown has a number of shops and social services. Additionally, the town of Thurso, which is located 5 miles away, boasts a broader range of excellent facilities. Caithness itself is an area tremendously rich in opportunities for both the resident population and holidaymaker alike. Breathtaking cliffs host innumerable seabirds including the puffin, one of the ornithologist’s favourites. Beautiful golden beaches stretch for miles, none more so than nearby Dunnet Bay with its high dunes. Indeed, such is the setting that the area is a well-known destination for surfers and hosts many national competitive events. Sea excursions are available, whether to watch seabirds, Grey Seals, Pilot Whales or Dolphins. Nearby passenger and car ferries offer a choice of day trips to the popular Orkney Islands. Genealogy research, ancient Brochs or perhaps the local Camster Cairns are aspects that appeal to guests.
For history enthusiasts, the 16th Century Castle and Gardens of Mey is one of the region’s most popular tourist attractions and remains to this day a striking architectural achievement and a fascinating day out. For those interested in fishing the excellent Caithness trout and salmon fishing is renown; the rivers Thurso, Wick and Forss are all well-known and are highly productive as are loch’s St John’s, Heilan and Watten. During the winter months the county is also popular with wildfowlers and several nearby sporting estates offer deer stalking and the opportunity for both walked-up and driven shoots, these activities undertaken outside the general tourist season. Staying on the sporting front there are several 18-hole golf courses within comfortable reach, namely Thurso, Wick or the links course at Reay.
