The area is well-served for those looking for business premises of all kinds, with quality properties available at prices and rents well below those on offer in more built-up areas of the country. Some key locations, as well as links to commercial property specialists in the area, are given below:
Naver Business Centre
Located in Thurso, just a stone’s throw from the town centre, this well-appointed, modern business centre offers a range of office space designed to suit a variety of business needs. The space on offer ranges from single-person offices up to suites suitable for seven or eight, and tenants have access to boardroom and conference room meeting spaces.
With no requirement to take on a long-term contract, this is a perfect option for those looking to test the waters before committing to a more permanent space. Naver Business Centre also offers a hot-desking space, which can be hired for as little as a single hour, and virtual office services provided by Caithness Chamber of Commerce.
Thurso Business Park
Home to major providers of business services including BT/Manpower and Equiniti, Thurso Business Park is ideally situated for those looking for a more substantial office space while remaining close to the town centre. With excellent transport links to the town centre and close proximity to other major business services providers, this is an ideal location.
Forss Business & Technology Park
Situated just outside of Thurso and near the Dounreay nuclear site, for companies working in the nuclear industry, Forss offers an unrivalled set of advantages, including ONR approval and presence within the Civil Nuclear Constabulary jurisdiction, allowing “list X” and classified work to be undertaken.
Forss also offers an ideal base for companies working in the renewable energy sector. Proximity to the Pentland Firth and to proposed onshore wind sites in West Caithness and Sutherland ensures your team can remain close to site while enjoying the comforts and conveniences of modern office accommodation.
Wick John O’Groats Airport Industrial Estate
Wick Airport Industrial Estate is long established and located close to Wick John O’Groats Airport. The business development site, which was developed by the Highland Council, comprises a mixture of businesses and organisations.
The site’s proximity to the airport, with its connections to Aberdeen and Edinburgh, is ideal for those working across multiple sites or with close connections to suppliers or clients elsewhere in the UK.
