A warm Highland welcome awaits at The Auld Post Office B & B, quietly situated on the main A9 route north, just a ten minute drive before reaching Thurso and fifteen minutes from Wick. A peaceful haven in which to relax and unwind and perfectly situated for a tour of the beautiful county of Caithness.

The Auld Post Office is a relaxed and friendly B & B nestled on the edge of woodland, with views across the moors to the peaks of Sutherland. A former 'But 'n Ben' cottage, once derelict and now lovingly restored.

A unique Gin Tasting experience can be pre-booked, with more than 100 Scottish Gins in the Tasting Room. Enjoy the full flavour spectrum with fresh garnishes hand-picked from the herb garden, as well as Gin Cocktails in the garden.

The two en-suite Guest rooms each have French doors to the private patio and gardens beyond. The Annex Suite has a sitting room with a reclining leather sofa by the wood burning stove and a super-king or twin en-suite bedroom.

Wake up to a delicious hearty home-cooked breakfast, with delicious eggs from the hens in the garden. We'll toss a log or two on the stove if there's a chill in the air.

Vegetarian, vegan, or any special dietary requirements, please just let us know when making a reservation.

Quality restaurants are a short drive in both Halkirk and Watten, as well as numerous bars and restaurants in Thurso and Wick.

Free WiFi anywhere in the house or garden; digital flat screen TV/DVD player, silent running fridge, hospitality tray, hairdryer, comfy bathrobes and spa therapy toiletries await in the pristine en-suites.

Caithness is rich in history, if you have the time visit the Castle and Gardens at Mey. This combines well with a visit to Mary-Ann's cottage at Dunnet.

Take an exhilarating walk down Whaligoe steps, now 339 to the tiny fishing harbour and cliff-top walks at Duncansby Head, a bird-watchers paradise.

If time allows take an unforgettable day trip to the Orkney Islands. The tour begins at John O'Groats on the passenger ferry to South Ronaldsay, where a guided coach tour awaits, leaves daily from May to September.

We are very proud to be members of Scotland's Best B&Bs and look forward to the opportunity to welcome you to our home.
