“The coastal scenery is second to none”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

This is real sea with waves and cliffs. The harbour in Wick has been made into a Marina for smaller boats as there is no fishing here now.

“A wild and windy place”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

Was recently up in Caithness in January and February and it was wild and windy but none the less amazing. The coastline is beautiful with amazing views. Walking along the cliff tops watching the waves crashing is is fantastic and does certainly clear your head. I visited the coastline from Thurso to John O'Groats and Wick and did it all by bus. It is possible and what a great way to see the countryside, even in winter. Was amazed at how many tourists/visitors were actually around. Great for wildlife too and taking photos.

“Blow the cobwebs away”
Reviewed 24 March 2014

What a remarkable coastline. Day 1 we walked south from Wick harbour & were rewarded with the best crashing waves and clifftop views. On day 2 we took the north path along the shoreline.
the sun shone on both days but boy was it windy. No wonder there are no trees in Wick

“Exciting for ANY age!”
Reviewed 19 October 2013

This is a way to see the coast from underneath the cliffs- and beautiful they are, multi coloured, and very intimidating to people, but not the wildlife which inhabit every nook and cranny. The drivers are very experienced seamen, don't feel nervous about going, it's a lifetime memory you're experiencing here! Thanks guys!
