I have a free return ticket on the East Coast mainline to use before the summer is out, so was thinking of maxing it out and going up to Inverness, then getting a train to Thurso.
I don't drive, so hire car is not an option - I am entirely reliant on public transport. i'm conscious that Thurso is a small town in a wildly rural area and that everything may be very far apart - is it realistic to have a decent experience in the north of Scotland relying entirely on public transport? Will I be able to walk from the station to accommodation, will I be able to get out of Thurso to landscapes worth seeing - either by foot or bus?
Thanks in advance!
