Highlands and Islands
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.
