Gills Bay has one of the longest stretches of low-lying rock coast on Caithness’ northern shore and its main feature includes a small harbour and a lively pier. It’s a quite popular spot for watching seals all throughout the year on the rocks and swimming everywhere in the firth. They can usually be spotted basking on the rocks while Porpoises can also be seen. Basking sharks are a bit rare but can be seen between the months of May and August. Simply sit back at Gills Bay and observe the fantastic wildlife prevailing in the area.

  • Best way to get to Orkney. The ferry takes about an hour, you get to see some beautiful sights and the staff have always been really friendly. Food on board is great too - simple, but quality. Only downside is that you can’t take dogs indoors on the boat. I understand why, but it’s a little annoying to have to sit outside with them for the whole journey (as you can imagine, it can be rather chilly), or a shame to leave them in the car. At least it’s only a short journey!
