 Caithness:Maps & Plans

Caithness is a low-lying, green, windswept landscape with distinctive flagstone field boundaries. Though smaller than the others, it has two of the Highlands' largest towns - Wick and Thurso. Agriculture and fishing are important along with small scale industry. The Dounreay nuclear reactor, now decommissioned, still employs many around the area.
