There are a number of picturesque harbours along the coast in addition to Lybster Harbour which dates back to the early 1800’s and was used for the filming of the award-winning Netflix drama, The Crown.
It was also the subject of the film, The Silver Darlings, depicting Lybster as once being one of the biggest herring fishing ports in the country.
Other local harbours including Latheronwheel, Dunbeath and Berriedale are all worth a visit along this stunning coastline.
There are also some great archaeological sites close by including Camster Cairns, Yarrows Archaeological site, numerous Broch’s and Standing Stone arrangements. Caithness is home to some of the most spectacular and nationally important archaeology in the country, ranging from the sites of the Mesolithic hunters and gatherers to the Broch builders including the mysterious stone rows all found on the east coast.
