Business trip 7th-8th March 2021
I've stayed at the Ulbster Arms before whilst fishing the river Thurso. This time I was staying on business. Despite the very difficult circumstances with covid restrictions I still had a very pleasant stay. Every member of staff I've ever met at the hotel always goes the extra mile to make your stay as comfortable as possible and each individual is a credit to the business.
