The 018472 area code is used for Thurso (Council of Highland) and the areas directly surrounding Thurso, which includes 8 distinct locations. Most 018472 numbers are used for landlines. However, they can also be purchased by companies or organizations to be used for services that don’t have any connection to the Thurso area.
Previously, the area used 08472 as their area code. This changed in April 1995 during the phONEday event, where it was changed to the 018472 area code to accommodate the growing population and supplement the shrinking supply of phone numbers in Highland.
