I know it may seem busy to some but its how we like to travel. The 3 days in Thurso is the only thing not currently booked, I know a few people have made some great suggestions around Thurso, is there any cant be missed things we should explore over those three days? Is a trip to Orkney worth it?

In case you need something for July 30 and 31, the town of Nairn is a few miles east of Inverness, just east of Cawdor Castle. It has its charms. I can recommend Tali Ayer B&B though there are lots of other B&Bs in town. The restaurant The Classroom is excellent.
