B876 Reiss - Castletown
This article is about the current B876 from Reiss to Castletown.

Lower Thura

The B876 follows part of the alternative route from Wick to Thurso. It was originally part of the main A88 but was downgraded later in the 1920s to gain its present number.

The road starts at a TOTSO on the A99 just outside Wick at Reiss Junction. Heading north west, the road runs in a series of straights, some long enough to pass slower traffic, some frustratingly short, but good progress can normally be made. It is a busy road, used by a lot of Wick - Thurso traffic, but busy in Caithness still means relatively empty! A couple of villages have 40 limits, and some interesting fingerposts point to Tain and Greenland! The further north the road gets, the twister it becomes, until it finally comes into the 30 limit for Castletown, terminating on the A836 at a simple give-way T-junction, where we turn left for Thurso or right to return to the A99.
