Halkirk is well-placed for touring the SCENIC NORTHERN HIGHLANDS in any direction including further north across the Pentland Firth to ORKNEY.

St Duthus is an ideal overnight stop on the way to ORKNEY ~ ferries from Scrabster & Gills Bay approx. 8 and 20 miles from Halkirk.

We speak English and a brave attempt at French
(le français pas couramment!).
