The Scottish Highlands region
Caithness is the most northerly county in Scotland. During your visit you can see the Castle of Mey, home to the late Queen Mother, Dunnet Head, the most northerly point of the UK mainland and many other attractions. There is a wealth of history, geology, archaeology and wildlife. During the summer you will see puffins nesting at Dunnet Head, seal colonies at Brough Bay and Scotlands Haven, and, if you are lucky, orcas in the Pentland Firth.
The climate can vary so bring a good selection of clothes. If you are a keen walker, bring boots and wet weather gear. There are lots of walks in Caithness, both guided and self guided. The area is also great for horse riding, fishing, kayaking and wildlife watching. There is a walking festival in May, a western music festival at Easter, and lots of galas and Highland Games throughout the summer.
Caithness is a 2.5 hour drive north of Inverness, 5 hours from Edinburgh and Glasgow.
