Location

While staying at the Pentland Hotel, guests will have the opportunity to explore the local area, travel around Caithness, and indulge in the varied activities we have on offer.

The Pentland Hotel is located in the central of Thurso, a small town situated on the northern coastline overlooking the Orkney Islands. Thurso's history stretches back to the time of the Vikings, when it was once referred to as Thorsa, translated meaning 'Thor's River'. Thurso shares its famous history of the fishing industry with its neighbouring town Wick, but is also well known among surfers and kayakers who travel from all over the world to experience the swells our sea has to offer.
