“It’s closed down - go to Horizons tourist info place in Thurso instead”
Review of Dounreay

Dounreay
Reviewed 6 May 2013

We went into the Horizons tourist information centre in Thurso today - in the old town hall. The Dounreay visitors centre stuff has moved here from the Dounreay site. It’s fascinating and the staff are helpful but lacks the scale of the Dounreay site itself.

You can't even get past the gate. Interesting golf-ball thing. There is still radioactive waste in the site. Great work environment even though it is in the middle of nowhere! Hopefully someone else will enjoy their trip too! :)
