Caithness Films - Short clips on many aspects of Caithness life and work

The name "Caithness" is an amalgamation of two reflections of its early history. Namely Cait, a Pictish province and a Norse word ness for promontory. The county reflects its history in many of its place names. The influence of Norse/Scandinavian, Anglo/Norman as well as Gaelic testify to the rich diversity in a small area over the centuries. This diversity has been handed on to many parts of the world as people from the north of Scotland emigrated to Australia, Canada, New Zealand, United states of America. Many of the place names of Caithness are repeated with their counterparts showing the need of original inhabitants in new lands to have a reminder of their past both cultural and geographical.   A small book is available from local booksellers (See business index) giving much information on Caithness places - Caithness - An Illustrated Architectural Guide by Elizabeth Beaton The Rutland Press ISBN 873190 27 1  The guides are available on several counties.  Thousands of photographs are to be found in these sections with more being added every week.  The following list is not exhaustive and many smaller places remain to be added.
