A vehicle and passenger ferry plies across the Pentland firth to Orkney from here.  Scrabster is still a fishing port and is the main Caithness port for the sport of sea-angling.  There is a fine walk along Holborn Head, north of Scrabster.  Care should be taken near the cliff edges, especially in wet or windy conditions.

                                                   Pictures taken 18 October 2000.
Weather was fine and the harbour area busy with the ferry leaving for Orkney and timber being loaded from lorries on to a waiting vessel.  Cattle from Orkney were still being loaded.  With the fish market earlier in the day Scrabster was certainly buzzing.  The harbour in recent years has had major improvements and more are in the pipeline.  Already many new offices and the fish market have improved facilities.  Proposals to increase the size of the Pier at the harbour will significantly increase the size of boats able to dock.
