  • Always worth visiting when in town, great exhibitions, in a wonderful old building. Fascinating history of the region of the nature and the people. The film is a must and a coffee and one of the fine home made cakes a great way to finish the trip.
  • Friendly delicious homemade cakes cheap excellent service interesting place within museum and gallery
  • Almost a tenner for soup, sandwich and a cup of tea but it's nice in here, quiet too if you just want a bit of peace and quiet to yourself. Nice cake selection as well.
  • Use Horizons regularly and always made welcome. Really enjoy it .....
  • A brilliant place to start finding out about the area, Start with the film upstairs and then work your way back down.

Where to stay in Thurso

The best way to enjoy your time in Thurso is to stay at one of its charming bed and breakfast venues or cottages for rent. Here, cottages, inns, and smaller accommodations are much more common than hotels, and much less expensive. Opt for a more private rental or relax at a lovely inn after a day of touring the Highlands. If you want more amenities and don't mind spending a little extra during your trip, some luxury hotels in the area could be worth the splurge.
