The Caithness Biodiversity Collection is set of over 400 images of the wildlife, landscapes and land uses of Caithness. The collection is available to anyone – communities, businesses, organisations, agencies or individuals – to use, as long as the images are not profited from directly. They are accessible in both slide and digital formats, from Marina Swanson, the Caithness East Ranger, Seadrift Centre, Dunnet (Tel: 01847 821531) or Ian Mitchell, Scottish Natural Heritage, Main Street, Golspie (Tel: 01408 633602). Digital pictures are available as TIFF approx 18 megabytes or jpegs approx 1 megabyte in size.
The photographs were taken over a 12 month period. The photographers were Ken Crossan and Iain Sarjeant who drew the project together. Sue Scott contributed underwater photographs and Keith Ringland a few to fill in gaps.
