One of the most incredible places to visit in Scotland
Ackergill Tower lies in beautiful Caithness, where the magnificent Scottish Highlands give way to wide open countryside rolling down to the sea. All just 10 miles from the famous John O’Groats.
From the low-lying coast in the east to majestic high cliffs and offshore stacks in the north, this is arguably one of the last true wilderness areas in Europe, and because of this, you can see an abundance of wildlife, from puffins and eagles to seals and otters. There are local distilleries to discover too and the world-famous John O’Groats, the most northerly point in Britain. Or take yourself wind-surfing or sand yachting at Sinclair Bay. Whatever you do, be sure to drink in all the sights and sounds of this remote yet remarkable part of Scotland.
