History

The Trust developed the biggest archive about WWII history in Caithness. The plans of the military installations at Burifa Hill and Dunnet Head were held at  the tearooms at Dunnet Head, along with an archive of information until 2016 when it was moved to the Castletown Heritage Centre. There is an extensive photographic library and letters from people who were stationed at both sites during WWII.

You can now purchase the book “WWII Sites in Caithness” on Lulu.

You can subscribe (free) to the history group and if you become a Friend, you will receive a copy of the catalogue and our quarterly magazine, the North Highlands Explorer, which is packed full of information about Caithness and Sutherland.
