(NC500) - Follow the signs north from Castletown village centre along a narrow lane to the Castlehill Heritage Centre. Park here and follow the Flagstone Trail to see this view.
Castletown lies close to the wide sands of Dunnet Bay, a few miles east of Thurso. People have lived here since the Iron Age, but the present village dates back to 1825 when it was built by James Traill to provide accommodation for workers at Castlehill Quarry, begun in the early 1800s. Good quality flagstone was quarried here and exported through Castlehill Harbour all over the world. The industry died in 1920 when concrete began to replace flagstones, but the harbour is still used by small boats, and the Castlehill Heritage Centre and Flagstone Trail, from where this painting was done, commemorate the commitment and labour of those long-gone quarrymen and their families.
