A warm welcome awaits at the Ulbster Arms Hotel and Lodges

You’ll find our traditional Highland hotel on the banks of the River Thurso, in the village of Halkirk. The hotel exudes 19th-century charm with traditional log fires and a host of charming rooms, while our lodges offer the same comfortable surroundings but with a more contemporary feel.


Our hotel and lodges offer the perfect base for exploring the wonders of Caithness and Sutherland, the two most northerly counties in the Scottish mainland.

Book a stay with us and you’ll enjoy a great night’s sleep and freshly cooked food that’s always served with a smile.

Start each day of your holiday or business trip feeling refreshed. We’ll do our best to ensure you leave us filled to the brim with good memories – and with plans to return!
