29 December 14 Along the coast from Castletown to Thurso. Mostly sunny.
The route starts at the Flagstone Trail. This structure was once a windmill
which was used to power saws for cutting the stone.
The first section is a very muddy track.
Soon we drop to the rocky shore. Dunnet Head in the distance.
Through the keyhole..!
Easier walking for a while.
But soon we have to take to the higher ground.
Good views of Dunnet Head.
Dunnet Head over Dunnet Bay.
Further along we pass remnants of a former wireless
station, a US Navy Communications Station.
These were the anchors for the mast support cables.
Looking towards Holborn Head.
Looking back towards Dunnet Head.
