Freswick Bay, Caithness

Submitted by Owen McCafferty on Sun, 2009-11-22

A salvaged Scapa Flow battleship, on tow to the breaker’s yards, broke it’s tow and landed on the rocks South of Freswick bay. Completely broken up now but a good rummage, with the bonus of being an excellent scenic dive under the ruins of Bacaholachie castle. Launch at Kiess.

Freswick Bay is on the east coast of Caithness, 4 miles south of Duncansby Head. Freswick Bay (to the north of Sinclair’s Bay) occupies a small asymmetrical embayment on the east coast of Caithness between Sinclair’s Bay and Duncansby Head.

The coast to the south is one of low cliffs and rocky shores, while northwards the cliff height rises to the spectacular cliff scenery culminating in the Stacks of Duncansby.
