Thurso is the principal market and shopping centre for West and Central Caithness and a wider hinterland reaching deep into North Sutherland. The town, which lies at the mouth of the River Thurso overlooking a deep sheltered bay, also acts as a hub for services and social centre for the area.
Thurso contains a good range of local shops as well as national retailers. Traditional shops, now a rare sight in many a town centre, are in abundance in the area. Explore a shopping map of the town using the link on the right.
