About the location


John O' Groats 14 miles, Wick 20.4 miles.

Thurso is the most northerly town in mainland Scotland and also boasts the country's most northerly railway station! Guests can take a ferry across to Orkney. John O'Groats Ferries offer the popular day trip package of ferry and tour. Orkney is a great place to visit and the ferry crosses regularly throughout the year from Scrabster and Gills Bay. If you take your car then remember to book first! Another great place to visit is the Queen Elizabeth Castle of Mey, why not walk around the stunning gardens or take the children to the animal farm! Thurso benefits from a pretty seafront location and from here you can see the remains of Thurso Castle. The newer part of the town benefits from wide streets with Sir John's Square at the centre. The town offers a good selection of shops, restaurants and hotels and everything that visitors to the area could possibly need. The Dunnet beach is a fantastic beach to visit! It is also situated perfectly for a visit to John O'Groats, which is just 14 miles away and Durness, where Smoo Cave, Cape Wrath and the Durness Golf Course are well worth a visit.
