Fantastic large property with pool
We recently stayed at Craiglea and it was fantastic! Having read a few previous reviews I had my concerns but on arriving at Latheronwheel none of these were relevant. The property is large and well decorated, all the beds were comfortable and plenty of towels provided for bathrooms and for pool use. The swimming pool was amazing, very warm room with lots of seating space around and speaker system for playing music (although connection was for iPhone only). There was no issues with heating or hot water so showering regardless of time of day was no problem. The main house has 6 lovely bedrooms and the barn is a great separate dwelling.
There was plenty of seating in lounge and dining room and plenty cutlery and crockery in kitchen.
We shopped at butcher who is a few doors down from house, lovely man and very helpful. We also got eggs from local chicken farm which were excellent. The nearest shop is a few miles north in Lybster it is a small Premier express but they had a great variety for a local store. We did a bigger shop at Wick Tesco which is about 20 mins away. The playpark down the road from house was excellent for the kids and they loved the Fairy walk which is near the harbour. There is so much to do outside locally especially places to walk, check out the Whaligo steps we enjoyed it there.
Avi the owner was so helpful with all my questions before we arrived and Mary who met us on arrival was lovely.
Overall we had a fantastic time and will definitely be back as soon as we can.
