View the Old Man of Hoy from the Castle of Mey

On a clear day you can see right across the Pentland Firth to Hoy from here and take in some unbelievable scenery as you do. That’s not all though because this castle also offers a delicious tearoom, shop, animal centre and beautiful grounds and gardens to walk through.

An interesting fact about this castle is that it used to be an abandoned castle known as Barrogill Castle until the Queen Mother spotted in in 1952 and decided to save it.

You can find it between Thurso and John O’Groats.
