More About Caithness

For examples of two contrasting lifestyles, you can also visit the Castle of Mey, Caithness home of the late Queen Mother, or, alternatively, Mary-Ann's Cottage, showing how successive generations of a crofting family lived and worked.

The coast between Wick and Thurso is spectacular and includes, near John O' Groats, the Duncansby Stacks, as well as Dunnet Head, the most northerly point on the British mainland. All of which provide stunning views of the Orkney Islands.

Dunbeath Heritage Centre portrays early settlers, crofting, fishing and the life of writer Neil Gunn. Laidhay Croft Museum brings the farming past to life, while, further north, clan history is portrayed in the Clan Gunn Museum by Latheron.

A variety of early archaeological sites, particularly between Latheron and Wick, include excellent examples such as the Grey Cairns of Camster, while north of Wick, the Northlands Viking Centre reveals the Scandinavian influences.
