Welcome to East Caithness


The village of Dunbeath is spectacularly set in a deep glen. Lybster is a purpose-built fishing village dating from 1810, with a stunning harbour area surrounded by grassy cliffs. In its heyday, it was Scotland’s third-busiest port. Things have changed – now there are only a couple of boats – but there are several interesting prehistoric sites in the area.
