About Nigel Miller

This is a family home which has been in my family for many generations. I inherited the house upon the passing of my Father, as it has been in my family for many generations I decided to hold onto the property so that it can pass to my son.

Why Nigel Miller chose Wick

Crofting is a unique system of small-holding found only in the Highlands and Islands. It dates back to the 19th century and refers to the land rather than the house upon it. This particular croft has been in my family since 1850, and was last lived in in its original form by my father and his parents up until the 1960's. Upon my grandfathers death the croft passed to my Father you substantially improved the property including building an extension so the original part became the bedrooms. Situated on top of the cliffs with stunning views North, East and South it is a real 'get away from it all' location.

What makes this cottage unique

Peace and solitude without being totally isolated.

Great spot

  • 4 of 5

Great location for walking and exploring the local archeology and history of the area. Situated right on the end of a lane just near the cliffs and beautiful outlook over the sea. Fantastic views and heaps of local history. Ideal for seeing John O Groats just 17 miles away and easy access over to Orkney and the route 500 across the top of Scotland. Lots of walking available along the cliffs with information points on most walks to keep you informed. Recommended for anyone who enjoys the outdoors and finding things out for themselves about the local area.
