There are two bedrooms which are used for B&B; one twin room with bathroom, and one double with en-suite shower. These are arranged around the gallery which surrounds the main hall.
The house was designed to host parties of friends who would meet to enjoy all the activities associated with a family-run country estate. We maintain the old-world ambience of a traditional sporting holiday in relaxed and friendly surroundings. The farm and gardens provide a ready supply of fresh quality food, to supplement game from the estate and a wide range of delicious fish and shellfish from the neighbouring port of Wick.
Thrumster House is situated close to the Yarrows landscape containing an unrivalled concentration of prehistoric remains through which a trail has been made out. Every year we conduct excavations or research in which we welcome volunteers, no experience required. This can range from fieldwalking ploughed fields for flints and other artifacts to full scale excavations. Ask us about dates if you are interested in joining in.
The shooting at Thrumster is very varied, being an area of very diverse habitats. The estate has 5,000 acres of grouse moor, and the rest is composed of mixed arable ground, in the small holdings known as crofts, and of rough pasture, marshes and waterside ground near our lochs, burns and ponds.
Thrumster has some of the most beautiful trout waters in Caithness, all, apart from Warehouse, a hill loch located in the Yarrows Hills, are easy of access, each being a very short walk from a public road. Each loch has good stocks of wild brown trout, each producing subtly distinct fish of good quality. Robert, the Gamekeeper is always on hand for advice as to the best locations and the flies to use.
Throughout the 19th century, Thrumster was the home of the Innes family, whose crests adorn the upper walls of the vaulted hall. This most interesting and colourful family became dispersed all over the world, but their history is fully documented in the vast body of correspondence which is held in the house.
Thrumster is situated in the County of Caithness, the sea-girt 'Land Beyond the Highlands' and is renowned for its rich diversity in its landscape and wildlife. Thrumster Estates can offer you a variety of sports from fishing in some of the most inviting trout lochs in Caithness to roe stalking in the woodlands and moors. We also offer bed and breakfast and self catering accommodation.
