Interesting place, just because it is the most notherly point in GB.

We were lucky with the weather, I would say it would be quite bleak in bad weather. I had a 200mm... read more

Came here with Caithness Tours to see the puffins and they are everywhere. Can get quite close and spent a happy hour watching them and the other birds. Well worth visiting just for the puffins alone...

I'm afraid I can't answer your question as I'm not a tour operator. If you're on a cruise ship you could try asking the Purser or someone in their travel office. Have a great trip.😎

There isn't any at the location. The one road approach at the start has a Pub/Hotel. That's about it I'm afraid ☹️
