Thurso lies along Thurso Bay and is officially the most northerly town in Scotland. It's a charming place, whose population balloons during the summer months with visitors coming to explore the gorgeous Scottish coastline. It's a vibrant little place with a ton of traditional little shops, quaint teahouses, and several fine restaurants that celebrate Scottish produce and cuisine. If you come to stay in a Thurso bed and breakfast at the right time, you can catch a glimpse of one of the world championship surf competitions held in town. Alternatively, hire a surf board and hit the consistently good year-round waves. You can also use the town as a jumping-off point for exploring the windswept Orkney Islands.
There's just something so impersonal about hotels. Fortunately, there's no shortage of Thurso bed and breakfasts, which offer a homely atmosphere and friendly welcome when you arrive. Nothing beats staying in one of the seafront B&Bs and waking up to the sound of waves lapping onto the nearby beach. Plus, most are a fraction of the cost of a hotel, leaving you more cash to spend on the restaurants and things to do. Sold on a B&B? You can always find your perfect match on Expedia, which lists every property, along with detailed descriptions and photos. All you need to do is plug in your dates, location and budget, scroll through the listings and book your favourite property in just a few clicks. Arranging your travel just got a whole lot easier, with Expedia. Coming on a romantic break? One of the cosy cottages overlooking the wild sea might be just the ticket. Alternatively, if you're bringing the kids, try one of the traditional B&Bs in the centre of Thurso, which offer much more than you would expect for the money. Whichever you pick, you're always assured of a comfortable stay when you book your accommodation through Expedia.
If you're driving up to Scotland, don't miss picking one of the Thurso bed and breakfasts that have secure parking spots. When you arrive, you'll be welcomed in by your friendly hosts and when you've gone through the simple check in process, you can settle into your home away from home. You'll find most of the guestrooms come equipped with everything you might expect from a hotel, like a kettle for making hot drinks, a flat-screen TV on the wall and complimentary WiFi, which you can use to plan your break. Whether you're looking for a double, twin or family-sized room, you won't have any trouble finding what you're after on Expedia. Come daybreak, you can fuel up for the adventure ahead on a property Scottish breakfast, with veggie options, or bowls of porridge also on the menu. If Thurso doesn't sound right for your break, how about a few nights in the capital, enjoying Edinburgh activities instead?
It's true that most visitors come to stay in Thurso bed and breakfasts to explore the astonishingly beautiful surrounding countryside. You could go fly fishing in the salmon-rich River Halladale, lace up your boots to take on the challenging hike up to Dunnet Head, or take up a new water sport, like surfing or sea kayaking. If none of those are your bag, you could always head up to Thurso Golf Club to swing your clubs along some of Scotland's finest fairways. Alternatively, walk up the eastern side of the bay to Thurso Castle, hauntingly beautiful ruins overlooking the wild coastline.
