A picturesque harbour, with great views of Dounreay Nuclear Power Station.
The harbour itself was built for Major William Innes of Sandside, for both trade and fishing. The bay was likely utilised by Norse settlers, with both place-name and archaeological evidence pointing towards their presence in the area.
There are a number of attractive buildings and features to admire, and the harbour has enigmatic views of Dounreay in the distance.
