Gills Bay - Review

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.

  • Disgusting how they treat customers..never sail with them...use superior to them cowboys....

  • Just coming into Gills bay from Orkney on the Catalina. Fantastic cliffs and a great crossing. The boat serves basic food and it is a reasonable price. Would recommend this way to Orkney.
