Northern Scotland. Castles, bays and fishing villages. Beautiful scenery. Try the Mackay Hotel in Wick, and the Stroma, a local single malt liqueur.

This was a fun trip in a small, fast boat. We're grateful that the captain was willing to go out with just me and my husband. It took several phone calls to decide on the trip because the weather was iffy, but we ended up having only a little rain. And it was fun getting into all their cold weather/sea... More

We thought this was going to be good but not this good! On arrival staff were welcoming and helpful, assisted us to get into our waterproofs and into the rib boat. Our on boat "guide" was informative and knowledgeable and as he is local to the area he had lots of anecdotes and was evidently passionate about the area, it's... More

We booked a trip after reading all of the great reviews and were more than happy with the experience! The skipper and the lady who run the trips are really lovely and helpful. It was especially refreshing to see the kind and inclusive way they helped a disabled gentleman into the boat where many others may have turned him away... More

We went on the 75-minute boat tour going North from Wick. We got a great view of Sinclair's Bay and our guide told us some really interesting stories about the sights we saw on the way. There was plenty of wildlife about - lots of birds and some seals. On the way back the boat sped up, which was great... More

We have had many a great trip on this boat. The family who run it are very safety conscious and knowledgeable of the area. The trip is excellent value for money. The length of the trip depends on the route they are doing.

My first seacoast trip was along the south coast from wick. Amazing views of the cliffs and inside some of the caves. We got to see a lot of birds nesting and a couple of seals as well. The first boat tour was so good, I had to go for another one. This time it was along the north coast.... More
