THINGS TO DO

The Castle of Mey

 

The Castle of Mey, a big crowd-puller for its Queen Mother connections, is 6 miles west of John O’Groats. The exterior is grand but inside it feels domestic and everything is imbued with the Queen Mum's character.

Wolfburn Whisky

Wolfburn is the northernmost whisky distillery in mainland Scotland. With a deep and exciting history well worth exploring, the multi-award winning Wolfburn is now available worldwide in over 20 countries.

Grey Cairns of Camster 

 

Dating from between 4000 BC and 2500 BC, these burial chambers are hidden in long, low mounds rising from an evocatively lonely moor. You can enter the main chamber, but must first crawl into the well-preserved Round Cairn

Dunnet Bay Distillery

There's something rather fetching about this small-batch distillery on the main road through Dunnet. The very tasty Rock Rose gin and Holy Grass vodka are made here, using botanicals grown out front in a rockery and under a little biodome. It's best to book tours in advance.

Castle Sinclair Girnigoe

Three miles northeast of Wick is the magnificently located clifftop ruin of Castle Sinclair. It's a short walk from a car park, with some interpretative signboards along the way.

John O' Groats

Though the most northerly point in mainland Britain is nearby Dunnet Head, John O’ Groats is one end of the longest distance between two points on the British mainland. The other point, of course, is Land’s End. Many charity cycle runs or walks begin and end here.

GUEST REVIEW

Andy is one of the nicest hosts to have accommodated us via Airbnb. His property is spotless and the stylish decor ensures it is a home away from home, we won’t be staying anywhere else when we visit our Thurso family! Thank you Andy! - Lauren
