Forss House nestles in 20 acres of woodland beside a picturesque water mill just 4 miles outside Thurso.

Overnight visits for the past 19 years have witnessed great progress at this property. All bedrooms in the main hotel have been furnished to an extremely high standard - a professional input apparent with quality furnishings and fabrics with the comfort of the guest enhanced by the newly installed biomass system. There are 4 de-luxe bedrooms within the grounds of the hotel - suit the slightly disabled with parking at your front door.

Dedication of head chef Andrew Smith and his brigade was very evident here on my visit. Clear ambition to achieve high standards with a bit of innovation - seasonal fresh produce and well-defined flavours. Meal perfectly executed. Breakfast taken in an attractive conservatory setting (9am deadline!).

Great ambience from the pre-dinner drink through to the coffee. Cocktail bar boasts over 300 malts and there is a function suite that can take up to 14 for private dinners etc.

Gills Bay ferry to Orkney is ‘just down the road’ as is John O’Groats and Castle of Mey, Plenty to do here – stay a bit longer this time and enjoy.

Your host of many years and well known to all: Anne Mackenzie.

(First visited, 1998).
