About Caithness

Caithness has often been described as "The Lowlands beyond the Highlands". "Spectacular" is the best description of the coastline where high craggy cliffs alternate with peaceful harbours. Along the coast are a number of Heritage Centres which tell the story of these Northlands, of the local Clans and of the Viking influence.

Wick and Thurso are the two main centres of the area, both with a good selection of High Street shops. There's also Wick Heritage Museum, telling the story of this 19th-century herring "boom town".

The county offers a wide range of outdoor activities. Water sports and sea angling, hill walking, bird watching, boat charter, wildlife cruises, golf, fishing are just some of the activities on offer here. Caithness really is a spectacular county with a special atmosphere of its own.
