Taste of Caithness Champions' Dinner

Come and celebrate the best that Caithness has to offer with our Taste of Caithness Champions’ Dinner at Mackays Hotel in Wick. With Champion beef and lamb, purchased by Mackays Hotel owner, Murray, at the Aberdeen and Northern Mart. Murray is delighted to secure the prime cattle and lamb champions at the Christmas Sale and then showcase these at the dinner. A full vegetarian menu is also available. Add the wine pairing for a truly first-class experience. Explore the finest produce available in our local region and learn more about how to pair wines with your meals. This is an unmissable event in the Caithness calendar!


Whenever we are up here, there’s only one hotel that we stay in! Murray, and his team, always make every guest feel so at home. The rooms are cosy, hotel well situated, by the river, and the restaurant and bar are fab. Excellent food and a great selection of drinks. Even with the covid restrictions, our stay was still lovely and we will definitely be back!

Showcasing Scotland's best produce

This event has been running for many years here at Mackays. The idea behind it is that we collaborate with some of our very best local farmers, sourcing their award-winning meat and putting it together into a delicious dish for our guests. We are proud to support Scottish farmers, serving up meat and produce in our champions’ dinner is not only award-winning but locally sourced.
