A small stretch of sand, popular with surfers.
Murkle Beach is a small and tranquil part of Caithness, where you enjoy a stroll on the sand, taking in some WW2 defences, or have a paddle. A huge underwater cable runs from Murkle Beach to Rackwick Bay in Orkney.
Human bones, iron spearheads and a brass horse-shoe were reputedly found here. The bones and spearheads were found in 1840 when the sand slipped away, and the horse-shoe was found by Mr Murray some years afterwards. According to the 'Name Book' of 1872, "Cartloads of human bones can be found along the sandbank at this place."
