What's with the Y?


The symbol is 1 of the 8 trident spikes from the Old Norse symbol - The Helm of Awe.


The rune was commonly carved into the shields, swords and spears of warriors as a mark of protection and sanctuary from harm.​

The Bay Dunbeath

We see The Bay Dunbeath as a place of sanctuary from the North Highland elements, a place to relax after a long journey, a hard days work and somewhere you are made to feel welcome.

The full Helm of Awe symbol when whole reminds us of the highland people. They have not survived here living in isolation. Its by being part of a bigger community that brings strengths to it's parts - stronger together.

Caithness has strong Norse history. Local Villages and residents still bear names of Norse origin.
