Caithness Waybaggers Walk February 2002

Our Walk on 3rd February 2002 was planned to be from Halkirk to Thurso down Thurso River.  Because of the wet winter we have had it was decided to give this a miss as the river was flooded in places.  Instead we decided to walk from Thurso East along the coast by Murkle and Castletown finally ending at the Pavilion at Dunnet beach. 

 The day started cold, overcast and dry.  By the time we stopped for a bite to eat at 12.30pm the first spits of rain were falling.  This rapidly turned into a deluge which never stopped the whole way to Dunnet.  So much for avoiding Thurso River in the hope of staying dry!


All that remains of fishing boat which went aground on January 1997.
