The full-day Discovery Tour lasts approximately seven hours, costs from £80 per person, and can be tailored to suit your interests. So much of Caithness is hidden from the casual visitor; the abundant wildlife, stunning coastal scenery, precarious cliff-top ruined castles, and hundreds of mysterious stone age structures. Join a Discovery Tour to get a flavour of the region, and you can have the secrets revealed and their mysteries explained.

Ancient Caithness Tour
Half-day tours of Ancient Caithness take approximately four hours and cost from £60 per person (min. two people). We will guide you through six thousand years of human habitation in the far north. Some of the oldest castles in Scotland dating from the 12th Century can be found in Caithness, often perched high above the sea on narrow rock promontories. There are also more broch sites dating from the iron-age (c 700 BC to around AD 500) in Caithness than anywhere else in Scotland, and there is an abundance of neolithic cairns, standing stones and stone circles.
Ben Hope Hill Walk and Wildlife
Conquer Ben Hope with Caithness Wildlife Tours and King Mountaineering on a day of hillwalking and wildlife watching, with transport from Thurso. Ben Hope is the most northerly of Scotland’s Munros with spectacular summit views extending along the north coast from Cape Wrath to Orkney. The walk up Ben Hope follows a well defined track with a short but steep ascent of 946 m, and takes 4 to 6 hours.
This will be a full day on Ben Hope covering a distance of 7.5 km. The walk offers the chance to see deer, ptarmigan, mountain hare, golden eagle, and other wildlife, with a stop at Dun Dornaigil broch if time permits. A good level of fitness is required, and you will need outdoor clothing and walking boots.
