Attraction Information

Thurso Beach

Thurso is famous for its rich fish beds, fish remains and scales can be found everywhere along the foreshore, the rocks are full. Fish teeth and complete fish are also found. Fossils can be found either on the foreshore platforms, cliff face or within smaller boulders.

The foreshore can be slippery and the rocks are extremely hard, so do be careful.

In winter and spring Thurso turns into a world class surfing beach!
