Sailing Vessels at Castlehill

A photograph of sailing vessels at Castlehill.

Castlehill was built as a major part of the flagstone industry in Caithness. Flagstone had long been used as a building material in the north of Scotland for paving, field dykes, walls and roofing. However, when James Traill came to Castlehill House, overlooking the harbour, he commenced the production of paving stone on a commercial basis. The first cargo left Castlehill harbour in April 1825. The house was destroyed by fire in 1967.
