Prehistoric Caithness 
There are a huge number of prehistoric sites in Caithness.  Little has been done to investigate most of them.  The listing here gives only a small number of the easily accessible sites.  There are about 100 known Brochs and many standing stones, rows and circles.  Other sites are being discovered regularly by keen local historians and walkers.  
Many interesting walks taking in particular sites are organised by Caithness Field Club who are happy to welcome visitors.
