Mackays’ Top Weekend Activities

Posted: October 18th, 2017 | Posted in: General News

With the changing seasons and darkening days, it’s easy to think that weekend activities are increasingly designed to be spent sulking at home! However, at Mackays we have braced the winter for over half a century and with this have become rather skilled in creating new ways to enjoy the Highland landscape, regardless of the weather!

Walks along Reiss Beach

Reiss Beach
Walks along Reiss Beach are perfect for those seeking to get away from the everyday hustle. Surrounded in planes of sand breathe in the sharp sea air and enjoy the fleeting moments of sunshine poking through the clouds!


It’s all about History

Wick Heritage Museum

It will come as no surprise to anyone who has previously frequented the Highlands that the lives of our ancestors are embedded deep into the heart of our culture. What could be a more befitting way to discover the origins of our culture than visit the abundance of Heritage centres spread across Caithness?
Granted this option may initially scream excitement! However, with interactive workshops, cafes and activities for the young ones you’d be surprised how entertaining a day out of the house can be!


Did someone say Masterclass?

You might no longer be lounging on a beach with a Pina Colada in hand, but a Mackays Masterclass will surely take your taste buds away onto your next holiday! Spend an afternoon with your own Barista as he guides you through a selection of Mackays favourite Cocktails. Bookings are available up to two weeks in advance with a variety of party packages available.

Old Pulteney

Old Pulteney

As mentioned before, heritage is a huge part of our culture. Old Pulteney without a doubt holds significant historical presence in the town of Wick. Mix all that heritage with a Whisky tour and cheeky dram and you are bound to have an incredible (and educational!) afternoon.

Movie Day!

At home or Thurso Cinema its entirely up to you! Gather your nearest and dearest and stock up on your favourite nibble collection, it’s time for a movie day!


Seasons may change but at Mackays we will always be there to provide quality entertainment and comfort. Whether you need to get away and spend some time in the great outdoors or you are craving a quality meal, we will be right by your side come rain or come shine.
