The Caithness and Sutherland region

The Highlands is not only blessed with wonderful countryside, there are also miles of dramatic coastline, with quiet pristine sandy beaches, picturesque sea lochs and a scattering of pretty coastal villages close to clear turquoise waters. This is a place to really enjoy 'The Great Outdoors', with plenty of activities from mountain climbing and white water rafting to gentle family walks and mountain biking for all abilities.

This part of the British Isles is also a great place to see wildlife; unsurprisingly wildlife flourishes in this great wilderness and there are plenty of opportunities to get out and about on land and sea - take one of the many boat trips on offer for close encounters with seals, whales and dolphins or simply get out into the glens, hills and forests to see eagles, deer and maybe even the elusive pine martin to name but a few.

For a holiday at a more leisurely pace visit the region's many historical sites, ancient castles, stately homes and fascinating museums, learn about the Highlands rich history and culture, its clans and conflicts, the tragedy of the Highland Clearances and its role in the Jacobite risings.

The whole area is renowned for its bird and sea life. Puffins, Great Skua, otters, seals, dolphins and whales are all seen around these coastal waters. An excellent boat trip runs from John O'Groats to encounter the sea life close to hand and to explore this fascinating coastline from a different perspective. At Dunnet Head just along the coast there is also a colony of puffins, and at Forsinard, Strath Halladale, there is an RSPB nature reserve, where local rangers will take visitors to explore the bird life, flora and fauna of this area. Historical sites and places of interest abound. A local archaeological trail provides a tantalising glimpse into times past with brochs, cairns and ancient sites along the way.

The town of Thurso, 8 miles away, has an excellent selection of bars, cafes, shops and restaurants.

Facilities also include a swimming pool. leisure centre, boating lake, quad biking, horse riding and sailing. The local beach plays host to the world championship surfing competition and the wide sweeping sands are enjoyed by visitors of all ages.
