"A luxury Scottish getaway at the very pinnacle of mainland Britain."
Feel on top of the world, or at least on the top of Scotland! In your luxury two-bedroom apartment at The Inn at John O’Groats, you will stay at one of the great natural landmarks of the United Kingdom, a place that attracts visitors from all over – even intrepid individuals all the way from Land's End in far-away Cornwall. Staying in an apartment within a restored hotel, your spacious living quarters combine the modern with the traditional and are complete with everything you need to kick back and enjoy your Scottish getaway.
The apartment is not only designed with nature in mind, but is also built to provide multiple vantage points for surveying the sea views from the comfort of your living room. However, for an expedition beyond your windows, there are plenty of possibilities, including day trips to the Orkney Isles and opportunities to visit a local castle and distillery. Your apartment at The Inn provides the perfect setting for embracing the wilds of Northern Scotland.
Natural Retreats look to develop their properties in positions which not only fit with landscape and ecological constraints, but also maximise natural light and warmth. In keeping with this, careful attention has been paid at The Inn at John O'Groats to ensure that your stay is as sustainable as possible. For keeping the cold away in the harsh Scottish winter, the Inn has been fitted with higher than regulation standard insulation, as well as E-solar glazing to minimises heat loss. In the warmer summers, the Inn's large windows maximise the effect of natural light, limiting the need for artificial lighting. Plus, any lights that are used all have low-energy bulbs.
During their stay at the Inn, guests can also swing by the nearby Bumblebee Conservation Trust which works to support the growth of the ‘Great Yellow’ Bumblebee - a species on the brink of extinction. Natural Retreats collaborates with and supports this company, helping them to fund their campaign to preserve the wellbeing of bees. Bees help to pollinate various flowers and crops which enable the land to become more fertilised and suitable for farming. Visitors will receive an extensive knowledge on how bees benefit our environment and the work the Trust does to ensure their welfare.
