Lifeboat

A photograph of the Scrabster lifeboat. This is most likely "The Sarah Austin" (ON 585) which was funded from a legacy left by Miss Sarah Austin of London. The Sarah Austin was launched 22 times and saved 63 lives. She cost £1,622

Situated on the Pentland Firth in the sheltered Thurso Bay, Thurso is the most northerly town on the Scottish mainland. Thurso is a long established town with origins dating back to Viking times when it was an important Norse settlement and the major gateway to mainland Scotland.
