Cabin with seating and information boards

General

  • Touring pitches on a family-run farm five minutes from Melvich beach
  • Thurso, Puffin Cove and Wolfburn Distillery within a half-hour drive
  • Farm tours, fishing and farm produce available on site

You may well spot a few Highland cows by the side of the road as you roam through the Highlands and Islands – but how about a stay where you can get so close you can actually brush that gorgeous ginger hair?

Indeed that’s one of the options on offer at Kirkton Holidays, a family-run working farm five minutes’ drive from the north coast at Melvich. This is a place where there’s always something going on, and the folk on site are eager to welcome guests in for a true taste of farming life. Come along in April and May to poke your nose into the lambing shed, or schedule a trip between March and June to catch the calving season in action.

Even outside of those busiest seasons, there’s plenty to see and do here: settle in for trout fishing (in season), take mountain bikes out onto the tracks or wander along the farm’s pathways to spy wildlife, meet pygmy goats Harris and Tweed, feed the sheep and play with the dogs (as long as they’re not on duty at the time).

For even more insight, sign up for a farm buggy tour where you’ll get taken around the farm, learn a bit about the farming calendar and take in the stunning views from the highest hill around. And yes – have a little stroke of those hairy Highland cows…

At the end of the day, pick up some home-bred beef or lamb (in season) to grill on your barbecue; serve up on outdoor tables or in a cosy wooden cabin.

Please note

From the manager...

Hi. I’m glad you had a good stay but was disappointed you marked us down for the facilities as we do state on the listing there are no waste disposal on site and you do need to be self contained.
We hope this hasn’t put you off to stay again .

Local attractions

In among all the antics on site, it’s worth finding time to explore the local area – as so often with the Highlands, it’s rather gorgeous. For starters, there’s a splendid sandy beach a mile and a half away at Melvich, and you can take a walk out to the cliffs at Puffin Cove to see the birds from may to early August.

For a tipple or two to go with your evening meal, swing by the Wolfburn Distillery (25 minutes’ drive) for your whisky or Rock Rose (40 minutes) for a bottle of local gin. The seafood’s pretty good around here too – stop by at Scrabster or Thurso (both 25 minutes) to see boats coming in and see what you can find to eat.

Alternatively, grab your golf clubs for a day on the course at Reay (10 minutes), stroll around 16th-century Castle of Mey (45 minutes) or take a day tour to Orkney from Thurso. If you’ve not yet snapped a pic of yourself by the John o’Groats sign, that’s slightly less than an hour away.

Must see

  • The Castle & Gardens of Mey (25.6 miles)
