3 Braehead House

3 Braehead House is our brand new self catered accommodation. A high spec 1 Bed SC Apartment on Thurso’s beach front. Perfect for guests who want to be self sufficient ! 

It offers grandstand viewing for the many surfers, kayakers heading North to surf our waters plus the variety of the wildlife out in Thurso Bay. These  include Orcas, dolphins, seals, otters and 100’s of different birds.  

Plus possibly a glimpse in the winter of the Aurora Borealis (Northern Lights) if conditions are right. Thurso harbour’s breakwater, 100′ in front of the flat, is a designated viewing spot for these spectacular dancing lights. Check  out :


3 Braeheads Bedroom
Window Seat

3 Braehead has a generous sized bedroom with a zip link bed ( complete with topper so no ridge in the middle ! ) so it can be set up as a 6′ Super King or as Twin beds. We use 200 thread count Egyptian cotton bedding so you can sleep comfortably to the sound of the waves and thick white cotton towelling bathrobes are provided for your use. 

The bedroom has a seafront window seat. Perfect for reading a book or looking over to the Orkney Isles or catching those whales and dolphins breaking the waves of the Pentland Firth. The Northlink Ferry can be seen departing Scrabster for it’s daily journeys to Stromness in the Orkney Islands. One of 3 ferries available.




The sitting room has a electric log burner, flat screen TV and, like all the rooms, front line views of Thurso Bay, the busy port of Scrabster, the dangerous shipping lane, the Pentland Firth, the magical Orkney Isles and the most northerly point on the British mainland, Dunnet Head. Now a RSPB nature reserve

The bathroom has a bath and a powerful mains shower, luxury ‘Scottish Fine Soaps’ toiletries and fluffy white towels.

The kitchen has a fridge, hob, oven/microwave and all the utensils you need for leisurely breakfasts, quick cuppas, at the breakfast bar overlooking the beach. Or cooking dinners for 2 for cosy nights in, in front of the fire.
