Castletown, Highland, United Kingdom
Just five miles east of Thurso, Castletown village is another Iron age settlement most prominently seen in the Broch just west of the village. Almost all the buildings in the village are built from local stone which featured heavily in the early growth of the settlement. You can find out all about this by following the Flagstone Heritage Trail or by visiting the Castlehill Heritage Centre. You will also find a lot of local independent shops here, including a fantastic butcher where you can pick up some lovely Scottish meat for a late night barbeque later in your journey around the NC500. Just southeast of the village is the former RAF Castletown which opened in 1940 to defend the famous Scapa Flow in Orkney.
