It was a rainy overcast day in Thurso and I was looking for a nice place for lunch. Let Bistro offered free WiFi, always a winner. I ordered fish and chips and an Icelandic beer. The beer and the food was very good.

If you follow for A96 for Inverness then the A9 to Thurso. This would take you to us although this is about a 4.5-5hr journey from Aberdeen. Hope this helps. Best Regards Brian
