North Lands Creative is in Lybster, a village on the east coast of Caithness, the most northerly county in the Highlands of Scotland.

Caithness is a county of wide, vaulted skies, rolling moorland and dramatic seascapes. It has historical monuments to visit and warm and welcoming people.

The weather in Caithness in September can often give an ‘Indian Summer’ of clear, sunny weather, but the county displays the green of regular rainfall and the wind can blow cold. Caithness has a beauty which has inspired, among others, Diana Hobson, Tessa Clegg and photographer Craig Mackay. You will find an unpopulated, unspoiled ancient landscape, varied bird and animal life, uncommon and rare plants, and a rich cultural heritage.

Lybster has a convenience store and a post office, two pubs, a hotel and a harbour-side café which is open over the summer. Cash-point facilities are available in the post office. The nearest bank is in Wick.

The nearest town is Wick which is approximately 13 miles from Lybster. Bus services are regular but somewhat infrequent. Petrol is not available in Lybster; the nearest petrol station is in Wick.
