  • Love visiting here. Staff always extremely friendly and home bakes delicious. Great cuppa! The waitresses are first class. Cosy atmosphere, and welcomes. Love the artwork of local interest. Also great historic exhibition of times past and the important days of Dounrey, without which we would never have moved north as kids in 1957. Shame it's all gone. Happy memories from Town Hall days too. Thank you all.
  • A brilliant place to start finding out about the area, Start with the film upstairs and then work your way back down.
  • Use Horizons regularly and always made welcome. Really enjoy it .....
  • I think its a great museum for such a small town and I think I'm quite lucky coz its only down the road from me!
  • It has amazing displays for all the family a good day out in Thurso
