Scarfskerry (The Haven), Dunnet

This photograph shows a small headland on the north coast of Caithness called Scarfskerry Point which lies a quarter-mile northwest of Scarfskerry and a half-mile north of Rattar. The headland shelters Scarfskerry Pier in the small inlet known as The Haven, lying immediately to the west.

A small settlement on the north coast of Caithness, Scarfskerry overlooks an inlet of the Pentland Firth, 7 miles west of John o' Groats and 2 miles west of the Castle of Mey. The ferry house dates from the early 19th century.
