Above and Beyond Tours
Guided tours of the north coast of Scotland
Explore the north coast of Scotland with Above and Beyond Tours. A perfect way to see the best of this beautiful area, while in the hands of an expert and knowledgeable guide. Above and Beyond offers tours of the towns Wick and Thurso, local highlights, history, nature, whisky day trips and more. Run by locals, Isobel and Angela, they share some of the hidden gems of Caithness, that you might otherwise miss.
Driving on the north coast
There’s a varied selection of driving tours to choose from. For example, the Highlights Tour takes you up north to mainland Britain’s most northerly point, Dunnet Head, and most northerly village, John O’ Groats. You’ll see dramatic views of the Duncansby Stacks and discover the history, myths and legends of this remarkable part of Scotland. What’s more, you can arrange to be picked up direct from here at Mackays Hotel!
Back to Wick and Mackays Hotel for a couple of nights. And not disappointed, as before, a lovely friendly welcome from the proprietor and given the room above the shortest street in the world (Ebeneezer Place, see Guinness Book of Records). Room splendid, food great, beer excellent, wine ditto, pleasant and helpful. Will be back again soon, a real home from home. Thanks to the Lamont family!
Exploring Wick and Thurso
Above and Beyond now also offers fascinating walking tours. Get to know our home town of Wick, or neighbouring Thurso. Your local guide will show you all the sights, while sharing their insider knowledge and stories of the area. Or, enjoy a nature walk in Thurso with a wildlife expert.
