  A to Z Index


A farming area on the coast with great views.  
There is a museum formerly call the "John Nicolson" but is now the
"Viking Centre".   Digs have been carried out on the beach at Freswick and details are to be found at he Centre.

Sited nearby is a Broch still watching over the Pentland Firth after all the centuries.  The Brochs belong to a period much earlier than the vikings.
