The north east of Scotland is a visual delight to the eye with outstanding natural beauty and wonderful seascapes. Reward yourself and visit.

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...

I have done this trip twice and highly recommend it to locals and visitors alike. Safety is a major consideration and they will not go out in unsafe conditions so you have to ring and discuss the options as regards the weather and tides You are provided with proper life-jackets and waterproofs and full safety briefings.. One of the best... More

This is real sea with waves and cliffs. The harbour in Wick has been made into a Marina for smaller boats as there is no fishing here now.

Was recently up in Caithness in January and February and it was wild and windy but none the less amazing. The coastline is beautiful with amazing views. Walking along the cliff tops watching the waves crashing is is fantastic and does certainly clear your head. I visited the coastline from Thurso to John O'Groats and Wick and did it all... More

What a remarkable coastline. Day 1 we walked south from Wick harbour & were rewarded with the best crashing waves and clifftop views. On day 2 we took the north path along the shoreline. the sun shone on both days but boy was it windy. No wonder there are no trees in Wick

This is a way to see the coast from underneath the cliffs- and beautiful they are, multi coloured, and very intimidating to people, but not the wildlife which inhabit every nook and cranny. The drivers are very experienced seamen, don't feel nervous about going, it's a lifetime memory you're experiencing here! Thanks guys!
