About the neighbourhood
Rowan Cottage is situated just 5 minutes away from one of the most fantastic beaches in the UK. With miles of golden sand and massive sand dunes forming a backdrop, Dunnet beach is simply spectacular.

The postcode is KW148TB although this will take you only to our neighbours once you hear that you have reached your destination drive further up the single track road and take the dead end road that goes off to the left, look for the first driveway on the left , there is a Woodlands sign and a green Victorian style post box at the bottom of the drive, turn up this driveway and Rowan Cottage is on your right up the drive, our house is a little further up the same drive. The single track Tain road that we are on is off the B876 Wick to Castletown road about two miles outside Castletown, the turning is off to the right if you are heading Castletown to Wick.
Inverness airport has low cost airlines, Wick airport has Flybe and Eastern Airlines
