Located on the Scottish north coast in Thurso Bay, Scrabster is one of Scotland's most northerly, and most important, fishing ports.
Located just a short drive from the Castle of Mey and within walking distance of Thurso, Scrabster is the second largest town in the Highlands. This tiny settlement is a popular gateway to the Highlands and its beautiful rolling landscapes that cry out to be explored. Alternatively, the traditional fishing harbour and the hustle and bustle of the busy fish market are both worth experiencing.
Scrabster Castle, alternatively known as Bishop's Castle or Bishop's Palace first recorded in 1328, is visible today as an earthwork and upstanding ruins. The area also
includes the remains of prehistoric settlement and World War II defences. Almost nothing now remains of the castle beyond a couple of grassy mounds and a rather more
modern pillbox built on the site.
