About the location
Wick 13 miles.
Steeped in clan history, the Caithness village of Lybster sits in a sweeping bay with views across the North Sea and down to the Moray Coast. Lybster offers a wide range of amenities including hotels, shops and a golf course. In Lybster you will be drawn in by the blend of ancient history and stunning scenery with a story of sustained development and an ability to move with the times. An exhibition about the area's history and natural heritage explains how the community survived throughout the ages. This is an area peppered with archaeological sites; the Grey Cairns of Campster sit five miles inland on the Watten road, where visitors can travel back in time by crawling inside the 5,000 year old cairn or by exploring the Achavanich Standing Stones which stand sentry by Stempster Hill. Bird watchers can observe breeding colonies of seabirds, on the cliffs around Lybster or view them seasonally through the camera link recording them.
