About Self-Catering Holidays in Halkirk


For walks, the coastline around Dunnet Head is said to be particularly picturesque.  When it comes to fishing, there are a number of lochs where you can fish in Caithness.  Some also like to try their hand at sea fishing from the shore.  Keen golfers will be pleased to hear that Thurso has a golf course.  There is also a castle on the outskirts of Thurso but this is in a ruinous state.  Thurso has a tourist information office and to get the best out of your holiday in the area it is advisable to pop in to the tourist office on arrival for free information and recommendations.  One exciting benefit of staying in Caithness is that from Scrabster you can catch a ferry to take you all the way to the Orkney Isles.  The Orkney Islands are renowned for their wild, rugged beauty and for their birdlife and whale watching opportunities.  We hope you find good quality self-catering accommodation in or near Halkirk for your Scottish holiday.   

Book a Halkirk cottage and look forward to discovering some of the best of Highland on holiday.
