Thurso is the main town within the area and it has a population of approximately 9,000.

Inverness, Capital of the Highlands, lies approximately 112 miles to the south, has a full range of commercial, educational, recreational, retail and transport facilities which you would expect for a city of approximately 80,000+ inhabitants.
