Setting up home in the North of Scotland
We understand that the area we cover is large and that where you call home needs to provide the right opportunities for you, your business and your family.
Choose from stunning locations with sea views, wide open spaces, a house in a village with a strong sense of community, or an apartment right in the centre of town.
Wick and Thurso are the two main towns and both are situated in the county of Caithness. Thurso is the only town on the northern coastline of Scotland and both are a popular residential area for many.
To help you get your bearings, the Dounreay Nuclear Site where many people in Caithness and North Sutherland are employed is 12 miles from Thurso, from Wick, 30 miles and from Helmsdale, 51 miles.
There are a number of outlying villages in Caithness and North Sutherland with small, friendly communities boasting modern and traditional housing stock.
