About Caithness

Caithness is the most northerly county on the British mainland.  It has a dramatic and rugged coastline,  It was a principality of the Vikings long before it became part of the Scottish kingdom.  Caithness has something for everyone and the pace of life is slower than in most parts of the country.  Yet the two main towns of Thurso and Wick offer a good selection of local amenities and shops.

Caithness Horizons is the recently opened museum in Thurso and is well worth a visit to find out more about the history of the area.  In Wick, there is the Heritage Museum, which tells the story of the 19th century herring boom town.

There are ferry links to the Orkney Isles and rail and bus links to Inverness.

John O’Groats is undoubtedly one of the best known places in Scotland and every year sees a precession of  “end to enders” making the long journey to/from Land’s End.

If you head west to the county of Sutherland, a short drive away, you will be rewarded with spectacular scenery and come across the most deserted and beautiful white sandy beaches.

There is the opportunity to take part in extensive outdoor pursuits (see activities page), like walking, fishing, cycling, surfing, the list is endless!
