Clyth herring station, Caithness, had four fisher houses and a cooperage according to Ordnance Survey in 1871 and is supposed to have the remains of a curing house as well. We recommend a visit as places like this will disappear entirely over time.

The Battle of the Pass of Brander (Loch Awe) in Scotland forms a small part of what's known as the Wars of Scottish Independence, which was a victory for King Robert Bruce over the MacDougalls of Argyll. The date is not exactly know but the late summer of 1308 is most likely.

The Eagle Stone is a Class 1 Pictish Stone in Strathpeffer. It was originally located further down the hill, towards Dingwall, but was moved to its current site in 1411. The stone is associated with the prophecies of the 16th century Brahan Seer who predicted that if the stone fell three times, the surrounding valley would be flooded, and the stone used as an anchor.

Campbeltown on the Kintyre Peninsula used to be known as "Kinlochkilkerran" and was renamed in the 17th century. At one point it had over 30 distilleries and proclaimed itself "the whisky capital of the world"! And it is home to the Wee Picture House, dating from 1913 which is believed to be the oldest surviving purpose-built cinema in Scotland.

Next time you're passing Loch Oich on the A82, check out the Well of the Seven Heads. We bet you've driven by and missed it! This monument is topped by a sculpture of a hand holding a dagger and seven severed heads - a stark reminder of one of the most gruesome episodes in Scottish clan history.

The Isle of Eigg is not without its own gruesome history! On the island is “Massacre Cave” which carries a harrowing tale from 1577. The high point - "Sgurr" - is millions of years old and the result of a volcanic eruption. The core of the volcano forms neighbouring Rum. A fascinating litle island!

The remains of a building can be found on a small fortified island on Loch Moy near Inverness. An inscription indicates it was built in 1665 and it is said that “The Mackintosh of Moy requests that the name "Castle" be removed, and the building left undescribed”. A beautiful area and little known loch.
