Getting There Etc.

Achanarras Index     Map    History    A - Z Caithness
The Achanarras quarry can be found about 1km west of the junction at Mybster.  Turn right  and go along the track beside a forestry plantation where you can find a car park.  Go up the hill for about 800 metres and pass a disused farm building to a gate which is the entrance to the quarry site beside another small plantation.

The track is on private land and the Country side Code should be observed leaving everything as you find it. 

The ground can be rough and boggy in parts so heavy shoes or boots are advisable.

Eye protectors should be worn if any hammering is to be carried out.

Fish can be found by by splitting the slabs from the heaps of flagstone.

Power tools arte not allowed on the site.  Excavation of the bedrock is also forbidden to prevent damage to the site.

More information on the site and for permission to take away finds can be obtained by contacting Scottish Natural Heritage
