Northern Scotland

Jump to last reply

I will be travelling to Scotland in April '15 and have an interest in neolithic history. Whilst on a cruise in 2011 I took an excursion on the Orkney Islands but spoke to a local lady who said there were actually an extraordinary number of rarely visited sites in the northern part of the Scottish mainland, many more than Orkney, which would seem to be Sutherland and Caithness?

I would be very grateful for any advice the Scotland experts can give on this area as many sources give it very little space. I expect to have three weeks from arriving in Glasgow to flying out again and will probably be travelling alone however, my two daughters (18 year old twins) saw Thurso on one of the maps I was studying and have suddenly become very interested in joining me as it has something of a reputation amongst the surfing fraternity.

Will I have any problems finding accommodation for three and what will I find in the way of amenities. I'm hoping to hire a vehicle locally, will that be possible? And what are the roads like in that area?
