The Auld Man of Berriedale

Berriedale is a small estate village on the northern east coast of Caithness, Scotland, close to the boundary between Caithness and Sutherland. It is sheltered from the North Sea. Berriedale is located at the end of the eighth stage of the coastal John o' Groats Trail.

In 2019, archaeologists made the finds from the Mesolithic, the Middle Stone Age, in an excavation carried out ahead of construction work at Berriedale Braes. Evidence of the camp included an array of stone tools, such as flints. Archaeologists believe the finds date from 6,000 BC and that the camp was used as a base for hunting.
