The sedimentary rock
laid down over 400 million years ago has provided our area with
both a beautiful landscape and a long standing industry. Caithness
flagstone can be found in buildings all around the world providing
a wonderful, natural look. At Caithness
Stone Industries they have continued this tradition and have
introduced new products. They allow groups to view the works and
provide demonstrations of how the stone is prepared. These have
to be organised in advance. Their showroom is well worth a visit.
View the cliffs and
birdlife from the sea-side either around Duncansby
with a guided boat trip.
walks with specialities in wildlife for example puffin walks,
whale watching from the shore, native plants, geology and many
more … or just for the scenery.
If there are not enough
people to make a tour you can still do all of these activities.
