Whilst there is nothing some of us love more than exploring a local area and seeing what we can discover, there are others of us who need a bit of a helping hand. This is where tours can really help. Tours, particularly in the Highlands come in a variety of forms. Some may be guided walks to historic monuments, some might be packed full of culture, and some might be a tour that takes you a little closer to the natural world around you.
There are a number of different tours available in Caithness and Sutherland and to help you find one that is right for you, we have put together the best tours that you can take in the area.
Maxi Day Tour of Orkney (John O’Groats)
Want to take your exploring a little further afield? If you do, then you might want to book on the John O’ Groats Ferry Tours. There are three options to consider, however, we feel that the Maxi Day Tour is one of the best value for money. Departing from the port at 8:45 am, this tour gives you plenty of time on the Isle, letting you explore a fascinating part of the country.
Caithness Wildlife Tours
Want the best chance to see the wildlife that calls Caithness their home? If you do, then you want to book in one of the Caithness Wildlife Tours. Experts in not only the habitats but the creatures themselves, this tour company gives you some real insight into the fascinating local wildlife.
Not only can you pick a Puffin Tour, a North Coast Tour but they also offer Ancient Caithness Tours and a Wildlife and Hill walk that is designed to get you out and about whilst you learn.
Free Spirit Trekking
Not too sure that you would be able to manage some of the walks on your own two feet? Want to borrow something that is sure to get you where you need to be? Why not book in one of the pony trekking tours that this particular company operates? Not only do you get to ride a horse, which is great fun in itself, but you also get a chance to get out there and see the local landscape from a totally different point of view!
If you feel at your most comfortable on the water, then a highly recommended tour is the Sea Kayaking for the Day offered by Ridgeway Adventure. Allowing you to get out on the open water and paddle yourself around, this particular tour is ideal for those that don’t like to sit around and would rather get active as they learn more about the area.
So, what are you waiting for? If you want to find out more about this beautiful part of the world, then why not book in one of these tours? Not only this, but after a hard day exploring, you could always stay at Mackays and find the ultimate place to rest your weary head!
