There are sea stacks, huge cliffs, beautiful long sandy beaches. The Whaligoe Steps are a must-see, and the cafe there is one of the best restaurants in all Caithness. But the entire east coast of Caithness is beautiful and you can walk it if you try. Accommodation is about a day apart for walkers and there is also bus service... More

We booked the short trip down the coast as the short day tour to Orkney had finished at the end of August and we hoped to show my brother around. The staff couldn't be more helpful and professional and safety conscious so even though the sea was not the calmest we never felt at risk. The skipper was very knowledgeable... More

Many years ago we went on holiday to this area. Particularly from John o Groats to Tongue. The place wove a magic spell on us. The empty roads, the friendly people, the breath-taking views. The wildlife in abundance, quaint shops and coffee shops and the wonderful cliff walks. We were so beguiled by this area we moved there......................to Portskerra and... More

I had my third adventure recently on the rib from Caithness Seacoast Ltd and once again had an excellent experience. This time the trip went to Lybster Harbour and it was really very interesting. All safety aspects are covered and warm, waterproof clothing is supplied ( although I would recommend wearing a few layers underneath as even on a good... More

Some of the most striking scenery in the country. But so much better when the sun is out and the wind is not over hundred miles an hour. Simply stunning.

I took 2 short sea trips on consecutive days. The first one was to the South of Wick, where we saw zillions of seabirds nesting, the Castle of Old Wick and other local landmarks. I enjoyed this so much that I went back the next day to make a short trip to the North, which included seals and puffins and... More

A trip around many of the coastal spots is well worth it - make sure you see the stacks near John O Groats - it's worth the short walk through the fields to see the dramatic coastline of the three rocky pyramids, and passing the interesting area of seabirds making quite a racket in the cliffs - someone with a...
