Caithness flagstones were once a major industry in this area and can be seen as field boundaries, roofing slates, and house building material everywhere locally. This route combines three short walks - the Flagstone Trail which explores this heritage, a walk along the coast above the wavecut flagstone pavement, and a small sculpture trail through the community woodland.


Well-prepared trail, coastal track, optional woodland section can be very muddy.
