Our location is one of our major assets. From our site on the outskirts of Thurso we overlook Thurso Bay and the Pentland Firth. Stay with us and you will have a convenient base from which to explore the further reaches of Caithness and Sutherland as well as the Orkney Isles. Orkney is ninety minutes away via the three ferry companies based at Scrabster, Gills Bay, or John O’Groats.
