A plot of land at the most northerly point on mainland Britain has been sold at auction for 1,600.

The site at Dunnet Head in Caithness, which has impressive views across the Pentland Firth to Orkney, measures just 5m by 5m (16ft).

Scottish Water had owned the site where there had been a water tank.

The plot is further north than the more famous John O'Groats and close to Dunnet Head Lighthouse, which was built in the 1830s.
