Lyth Arts Centre
Lyth Arts Centre is a multi-arts centre in Caithness, presenting a year-round programme of live performances. From some of the most exciting small-scale touring companies in Scotland to internationally acclaimed artists, the programme includes theatre, dance, comedy, traditional music, jazz and much more.
Every July and August the performance space evolves into a gallery presenting a visual arts exhibition of local and international talent, alongside a programme of family friendly daytime events.
Lyth Arts Centre is a hidden gem between Wick and Thurso, just a short detour of the NC500 route. Pop in for teas, coffees, homemade cakes and local produce in our cosy lounge and garden.
