Quarrying in Caithness

A photograph of Caithness Quarry workers.

It is likely this photograph was taken at South Head quarry which was used as the main source of stone used in the construction of Thomas Telford's model town and harbour at Pulteneytown, and also the ill-fated Stevenson's harbour breakwater, in the early part of the 19th century.
