Mackays Hotel is located in Wick, in the beautiful area of Caithness. The hotel has gained wide recognition for its high standard of award winning service and fine food. You'll find yourself relaxing ...More from the moment you arrive with our uniquely warm rooms, each furnished to capture the gentility of a Highland getaway. The No 1 Bistro is one of Caithness's tastiest dining choices and takes pride being the only restaurant in Wick recognised for culinary excellence with an AA Rosette. Using only the best local produce and fish straight from the boats at Scrabster, our No 1 Bistro has gone to great lengths to ensure a mouth-watering Highland menu which offers something for everyone. Our guests can also take advantage of free entry to the local pool and gym and fast WiFi throughout the building. At Mackays, we like to keep things simple. Affordable luxury and excellent company.
