We would like to offer you a warm Highland welcome to our Bed and Breakfast in Scrabster.

We are located where the Orkney car ferry leaves to go to Orkney. It looks down onto Scrabster Harbour and has a beautiful panaramic view of Thurso. It is an ideal place to stay whether you are waiting for the ferry, exploring Caithness, passing through on the North Coast 500 or just looking for a scenic view and a friendly place to stay!

Scrabster bed and breakfast is a walking distance from local shops, the beach and Scrabster harbour.  It’s also a 30 minute drive from John O’Groats.

There is ample parking and the nearest bus stop is just across the road.

We have two bedrooms available. One en-suite double / family room and one double / twin room with hand basin in the room and access to a shared bathroom. Both rooms have a smart television and the en-suite room has a lovely view of Scrabster harbour, and if you’re waiting to catch the ferry to Orkney you can even see it from the room! Both rooms are non-smoking.

Each room will be serviced daily and an iron and ironing board can be available on request.

You can enjoy a full hearty Scottish breakfast in the morning, if you have any special dietary requirements then you can be sure that we will do our best to accommodate them.

We offer our guests the use of a visitors lounge to watch tv, unwind and relax. A complimentary tea tray with home baking and biscuits are served here. Also feel free to use our garden and outdoor seating area.

Free wifi is available.

Check in time is after 4.15pm. If you are going to be later than 6pm please telephone to advice of expected time of arrival. Check out on day of departure is 9am. Payment should be made by cash or cheque only as we are unable to process credit cards.
