2 pods and a shepherd's hut - self catering cabins

Glamping Accommodation

Come back from your day out, surround yourself with stunning scenery and just keep enjoying each other's company. Peace and quiet awaits in an idyllic location in our cozy accommodation with some amazing sunrises, sunsets and starry skies. Take a walk from The Crofter's Snug along the coast going west past the Castle of Mey or east to St John's Point all the while looking across the Pentland Firth to the Orkney Islands and spotting the wildlife: sea-birds, seals, otters and dolphins can all be seen at various times of the year. If you're here for a few days then you might go further afield - you might even have booked a trip to The Orkney Islands. However you've spent your day, come back to a cozy evening in our snug accommodation - perhaps toasting marshmallows over the fire or enjoying a glass of something while watching the sun set. You'll love it :-)

We have three self-catering options to choose from:


One night stays before 31st July 2024 released

 🐾   If your pets are taking you on holiday, Pod 1 and 2 are pet-friendly (max 2 pets) with a total pet fee of £20/stay.  🐾  



Pet T's & C's here

Pod One

From £95/night

Sleeps 2+2

Double Bed + sofa bed (+£30).

Kitchenette. Ensuite.

Pet Friendly (max 2 dogs)


Pod One was the first to be built in 2016 and was such a big success Pod Two and the Hut soon appeared. Book now to follow in many a weary traveller's footsteps and share our little slice of Highlands heaven. 

Pod Two

From £100/night.

Sleeps 2+2.

King size Bed + sofa bed.

Kitchenette. Ensuite.

Pet Friendly (max 2 dogs)


The main differences between the two pods is that Pod Two has a King rather than double bed, a waterfall shower and a slightly bigger TV. Both have a double sofa bed - ideal for families. A lovely stop on your travels.

The Hut is the newest addition to the Crofter's Snug family and is just lovely: cozy and deliciously romantic. You will enjoy a different way of cooking using the wood fired stove or just fire it up to keep warm and cozy and use the electric hotplate instead.

Value for money at this place is incredible - one of the cutest, cosiest little places we have ever stayed with the most beautiful sea view. The hut is immaculate, wonderful shower and wood stove facilities, pictures don’t do it justice until you see it in real life! A real ‘wow’ place. Karina and Jo are so lovely and friendly, we felt so at home and would love to return!


We stayed and totally fell in love with the place. We totally recommend this to everyone who wants to live a beautiful experience! Love From Italy!!

We had a lovely stay! We rented one of the pods, it was really comfortable and well-equipped, with a breath-taking view on the North coast and Orkney. It's been a perfect trip for us and we couldn't recommend it enough. Thanks again!

Stayed in the Shepherd’s Hut for 1 night. Absolutely lush with gorgeous views over the PENTLAND Firth. I’ll be back

Allan M

Wow. Simply wow. Do not miss this place. We are at the end of the world (it's not an image). You can cook in or over a wood fire. Sun setting in the sea.

It is a very cosy, warm and clean place. Lovely location. Very welcoming hosts. Myself along with my granddaughters aged 8 & 6 would highly recommend staying here


What an amazing place! Location is perfect. Definitely worth a visit just for the sunrise and an starry night skies. You feel like you have the coastline to yourself. Perfect hosts, with great knowledge of the area, so welcoming and accommodating! Will definitely be coming back 


The place and location are breathtaking, we arrived just before sunset and the view blew us away. If this is glamping I just discovered a new way of having my holidays.

Incredible! One of the best places i’ve ever stayed. The pod has everything you need. Communication was excellent and check in was easy. Bonus points for the enclosed pen to let your dog out! Definitely will be back!


Loved this place! So cosy and perfect! It has an amazing shower! Really good!


Amazing views, amazing pod and an amazing location. Lots of gorgeous walks from the property. The pod was so clean and cozy! It’s also nice and private. I couldn’t recommend this place enough.

Laura E

Welcoming hosts and a lovely pod! Everything you could need for your stay was provided. The website was really useful for ideas! The views were amazing! We would love to stay again!

Amy N

What an amazing place! An incredible location with stunning views! We’ve already changed next year's holiday plans so that we can come back.

Our second visit and each time it just gets better. This time we bought along the mother in law and her partner, they stayed in the shepherds hut and loved it! We all had a fantastic time and to top it off we saw a group of dolphins. We will be seeing you again very soon!
