Town: Halkirk is a peaceful little village in Caithness, said to be the "first planned village in Scotland", surrounded by moorland and spectacular views and with excellent access both up North Sea and down to the Moray Coast. Halkirk offers a handful of amenities including small village pub, shop selling local produce and a hotel with restaurant. Halkirk is ideally placed for touring this remote and beautiful area of the Northern Highlands. It is also situated perfectly for a visit to John O'Groats, which is just 25 miles away and Durness, where Smoo Cave, Cape Wrath and the Durness Golf Course are well worth a visit.
