On The Map: Thurso is located on the northern tip of mainland Scotland. The town is most easily reached via the A9 road from Inverness, some 110 miles / 2 hours to the south.
Thurso is the most northerly town on mainland Scotland, and gateway to the Orkney Islands. Thurso’s origins date from as early as the 900s, at which point Vikings settlements were well established, using the river mouth as a port and fishing base. In modern times, the often turbulent seas off Scotland’s northern coast have become a massive draw for surfers from all over the world, but Thurso is most often used as starting point for exploring the amazing scenery of the region. The 140 mile northwestern route via Durness to Ullapool, is often heralded as Scotland’s most spectacular scenic drive. Back in town, Shore Street is very picturesque and the seafront is well worth a stroll. Also of note is Caithness Horizons, a modern museum housed in the old Town Hall and Carnegie Library.
