Self-catering holiday cottages in Thurso

Thurso is known for being the most northerly town in mainland Scotland, just 20 miles from famous John O’Groats. It has a pleasant sandy beach and is home to some of the best surf breaks in the UK which attracts surfers mainly between October and April. The other body of water which attracts visitors is Thurso River, which is popular for fishing, particularly from January to October. Our holiday cottages in Thurso provide the perfect base from which to enjoy the activities on offer.

In the town are a host of shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. The Fisher Biggins is the oldest part of Thurso and, as its name suggests, used to be the area where the fisher folk of the town lived. The area features in artist L.S. Lowry’s painting ‘Street Musician’s which was sold in 2014 for £842,500. Another iconic place to see in Thurso is its castle, half of which is now a private home. The best way to appreciate it is on a walk along the beach (dog-friendly year-round). As for visitor attractions, Wolfburn Distillery (1.4 miles) which overlooks the Pentland Firth offers weekday tours during which you can witness the careful way in which the malt whisky is made.

If you enjoy walking, there are plenty of scenic routes in the vicinity, including the walk to Holborn Head where you can admire the imposing cliffs and sea stacks, and a route along the river which begins at the park.

If you’re planning a holiday in this northernmost area of Scotland, take a look at our Thurso cottages which offer everything you need for a comfortable and memorable stay. You’ll find our self-catering accommodation in Thurso listed above.
