Group photo taken at Dunbeath Strath

This photograph shows a group of people standing on a swing bridge at Dunbeath Strath, in Caithness. Standing left to right are, Barbara Ross and her children George, Barbara and Jean.

Dunbeath Strath is situated on the south east coast of Caithness, about 23 miles from the town of Wick. At the mouth of Dunbeath Strath sits the village of Dunbeath, birthplace of the well-known Scottish author Neil M. Gunn. One of the author's books, 'Highland River', was based around the Strath and the river that runs through it, Dunbeath Water. The Strath, having been inhabited for thousands of years, is also famous for being a site of archaeological interest. A heritage trail now runs through the area and points of interest on the walk include an old Meal Mill, a standing stone, Dunbeath Broch, a chambered cairn, an old crofting settlement, and the Prisoner's Leap Gorge.
