Go the Extra Mile & Venture North

Whether venturer or adventurer you will find a region rich in unique leisure opportunities. Go surfing at Thurso East at the world famous reef break, or join the ‘end-to-enders’ and visit the northerly extremes on the UK mainland at Dunnet Head or John O’Groats. Have a change from seascapes in Scotland’s first European Geopark with its 3,000 million year old rocks and classic hills, like Suilven and Stac Pollaidh, amongst the wildest places in Britain.Take time to unwind under gigantic skies in our ancient land and tread in the footsteps of our Pictish and Norse ancestors whose enigmatic architectural remains cover our landscape. If you’re lucky you might even see the Northern Lights in our clear dark skies.When you’ve climbed, trekked, mountain-biked, surfed, gazed, explored and recharged, come inside and enjoy the Highland warmth and hospitality. Time to venture north!
