More about Thurso…



Thurso is in striking distance of unforgettable sights and experiences in every direction: Sutherland’s beauty to the west, Flow Country wilderness to the south, Orkney and Shetland up north, and historic Caithness all around.  We’ve created itineraries built from remarkable places around Thurso to guide your discovery of Scotland’s far north.


About this project

Discover Thurso is a creation of the community-led Destination Thurso project – a year-long project promoting Thurso as a strategic point along the North Coast 500 to explore Scotland’s far north.

Through a series of curated itineraries, this website aims to help you discover the places that make Thurso; and through our blog – the people who make this town what it is.

In 2018, the Thurso Community prioritised the need to enhance your experience of exploring our home – we encourage you to join us in deciding how that should be done.
