About the neighbourhood
Lyth is small, rural community but boasts it's own Art Centre regularly showing exhibitions, theatre events and musical evenings. Rolling farmland leads to distant view under a big sky, with Northern Lights seen in the winter. In close proximity there are golf courses, beaches and picturesque harbours. If history is your interest Caithness has an extensive historical built environment from the early days of brochs to the herring industry in more recent times. For outdoor enthusiasts Caithness has walks, quiet cycle routes over forest trails and countryside with wildlife and birdlife abounding everywhere you look.
Getting around
Since this is a rural area private transport is essential.
