Accommodation Description:

The Ulbster Arms on the banks of the River Thurso has long been the venue of choice for the travelling business person or holidaymaker who wants to enjoy a comfortable stay in a quality highland hotel. Our extensive programme of bedroom refurbishment has now been completed. This means that all our guests can benefit from the upgraded amenities you would expect from a modern 3 Star establishment including free Wi-Fi throughout the Hotel Freeview TV and coffee & tea making facilities in all rooms.

We also offer total flexibility with early and late check-in and out times available on request and plenty of on-site car parking. The hotel restaurant is noted for its high quality cooking and imaginative dishes using local produce whenever possible. For a more informal atmosphere the Anglers Nook Bar is the ideal place to relax and enjoy a leisurely dram or drink of your choice from our well stocked bar and is a firm favourite with the locals and visitors alike.

Ideally situated just a few minutes from Thurso and Scrabster Ferry Terminal and a ten minute drive from Dounreay it is the perfect base for the business or leisure traveller to access everything that the far North and Caithness area can offer.
