Thurso East, Highland

Thurso East is Scotland's prime surfing venue on the north coast of Scotland. Thurso East is located at the mouth of the River Thurso, overlooked by the remains of Thurso castle. The reef is made of layers of Caithness flagstone (the same stone that paves the Strand and much of Paris). Thurso East is a fast reef break and has hosted many international competitions.
