“Helmsdale Tardis - a true Scottish Sanctuary”
Reviewed August 3, 2015 for a stay in July 2015
people found this review helpful

Just back from a very relaxing stay at Scottish Sanctuary. Very impressive, clean, warm property in a quiet, friendly coastal village. This house is an excellent base for exploring the North. The house is centrally located, has more rooms than the Tardis and is minutes away from the harbor, shops, pubs and hotels. Would recommend the Belgrave Arms for food (esp the steak), fish and chips from the renowned La Mirage and drinks in the very friendly Bannockburn Inn. We went to The Orkney's for a day trip (Scrabster is quickest from Helmsdale) Visited Skara Brae, Standing Stones, Italian church, St Magnus Cathedral and still time for shopping in Kirkwall!! - great views of the Old man of Hoy from the very modern and well equipped ferry. Loads of sandy beaches, lochs and sheltered coves in the Helmsdale area.
