Caithness

Caithness is in the furthest north-east corner of the British mainland, separated from the Orkney islands by a few miles of sea across the Pentland Firth. Whilst part of the Highland region administratively, it has a different character to the rest of the Highlands, being largely lowland! In the west of the county blanket bog and peatlands abound and form the eastern part of the Flow Country that extends west into Sutherland. In the east there is less peat and more farming. The land is rolling and populated.
