Caithness, 1925 - Occumster

This is a page from a book of photographs of Caithness from 1925. It shows a photograph of Scaraben and Morven taken from Occumster. Occumster is a small settlement situated twelve miles south west of Wick.

The mountains of Scaraben and Morven are found in Caithness. Scaraben rises from the Langwell Forest to a height of 2053 ft (626 m). It is a long quartzite ridge with three distinct summits. Morven is the highest point in Caithness at 2316 ft (706 m). Because of its isolated position it can easily be seen as far away as the Moray Firth and on a clear day Orkney can be seen from the top.
