Brough near Thurso

Brough just north of Dunnet. This house was owned and may have been built by the Ryrie family in the first decade of the twentieth century. Past the house can be seen the Pentland Firth and the island of Hoy, one of the Orkney Islands, famous for its “Old Man” a 137m high vertical sea stack.

This page is part of Coastal Knowledge, an online exhibition mapping some of the amazing places on the coast of Scotland.  It includes pictures, memories, artworks, stories and videos submitted by a variety of people including scientists, artists, coastal dwellers, tourists, and community organisations.  We want to share the beauty of the Scottish coast, but also its vital role in the day-to-day lives of people in Scotland- for example, its many industrial roles.

This exhibition is dynamic and ongoing- and we’d love for you to share contributions for it too!  To learn more and submit your own coastal knowledge, visit the main page of the exhibition.
