The Area

Gills is a remote coastal, scattered crofting township and former fishing village, with views overlooking Gills Bay it is situated on the north coast of Caithness. The township is located directly between the villages of Mey to the west and the village of Canisbay to the east and approximately 3 miles to the west of John O'Groats. Canisbay is a small scattered community with a nineteenth century church used occasionally by the Royal Family as it is just a couple of miles from the Castle of Mey, the late Queens Mother's Caithness residence. It has a modern medical centre, youth hostel, village hall, church and primary school. Nearby John O' Groats is undoubtedly one of the best-known places in Scotland, and every year this North-East tip of Caithness sees a procession of "End-to-Enders" making the long journey to Land's End. John O' Groats itself is very much a focal point for tourism, and the village boasts one hotel and a guest house, a campsite, numerous B&B establishments and a number of craft shops and studios. As well as being a destination in its own right, it is also a springboard for trips across the Pentland Firth via the short sea crossing to Orkney, as well as the all year round car/passenger ferry from Gills to St Margaret's Hope (Orkney).
