Travel & Connectivity

The Building Plot for sale at Seabreezes, Munro Place, Bettyhill, Sutherland is set in one of the most beautiful and unspoilt parts of the United Kingdom. It is literally as far from the madding crowd as is possible, whilst still remaining on mainland Britain.

Our Building Plot is about midway between John O’Groats and Cape Wrath. On the wonderful…..

The Road To Cape Wrath

We would highly recommend you visit Cape Wrath which is a very pleasant day out to the west of us. We are in the middle of the top coast. Cape Wrath is to our far left/west.

A genuinely unspoilt and breathtaking part of the country. Summer up here is really like the South of France, but don’t tell anyone – it is a reasonably well kept secret!

This is the amazing area you will be spending real quality time at:

Yet up here is remarkably accessible with very good road connectivity and noticeably car free roads to the local, very civilised Wick John O’Groats Airport which is a direct 50 mile road journey from our Building Plot at Seabreezes to John O’Groats Airport. Also a very pleasant drive to a few miles along the east coast to the MAIN HUB airport to MANY locations around the UK and the world beyond via

As well as good air travel links, the relatively small size of Britain, when say compared with America or Europe means that the North Coast of the country may seem and feel far from the polluting fumes, frustration and crowded city life, but it is just a relatively short drive away from friends and relatives throughout the UK.

Jeremy Clarkson can drive to John O’Groats for the sheer pleasure of it …

Jeremy Clarkson – John O’Groat Jaguar Drive

Top Gear’s Jeremy made this journey from London to our easterly neighbours at John O’Groats in less than 10 minutes. Though in real life it does take a little bit longer.

Jeremy Clarkson’s Jaguar Journey to John O’Groats starts at 25 minutes into this Youtube clip.

At 26 minutes into this clip we have an all too familiar traffic jam at Birmingham.

At 33 minutes in there is a wonderful thing called “Fuel Bingo”.

At 34 minutes, Jeremy utters the memorable phrase that he seems to have “Run Out Of Country” at John O’Groats,

All in all the road journey for this Top Gear episode illustrates nicely the difference between too many cars and traffic congestion, versus true beauty and a quality of life place to live and work.

So all in all, maybe worth taking a drive yourself for a look-see.

Please don’t tell too many folk, but one of the pleasures of driving in the Highlands is that you can go for an hour without meeting another car. Traffic jams are such a rare thing, you are more likely to see Elvis Presley.

It is a fact that many, many people actually walk from Lands End to John O’Groats to complete the iconic journey. If so many folk walk and peddle cycle the road from one end of Britain to the other, then the car trip is literally a breath of fresh air – well once you join the A9 and commence driving in the Highlands properly, with fewer and fewer cars as the farther north your journey takes you.

On a personal note, the writer of this website bought the lighthouse buildings nearby to Seabreezes – at Strathy Point in 1999, and truly wished this had happened 20 years earlier. Such is the utter beauty of the North Coast, and friendliness. A fact born out by the number of family and friends who have moved up to live at the North Coast and find the hidden gem that really is life looking towards, and almost within touching distance of the Arctic Circle.

For those who are looking to enhance a quality of life, here are just a few photos of the commute to the North Coast. The journey that renowned motoring critic Jeremy Clarkson so much enjoyed.
