'Egypt in Far North'
In his The Province of the Cat, George Gunn refers to Caithness as being a part of the country about which many people are unaware. Yet it is rich in evidence of prehistoric settlements which were a driving force in our cultural history as indicated on the BBC website. The county's off-shore island of Stroma was thriving until well into the second half of the 20th Century. However, change came suddenly and its relics of the past were clearly described and pictured in the book, Stroma. of which George Gunn was a co-author, also published by The Islands Book Trust.
