Morven was the highest point in the historic county of Caithness, standing at 706 m (2,316 ft). Due to the county of Caithness being quite low lying, Morven’s conical appearance makes it a prominent feature to the surrounding area and can be seen from miles around and can be seen from across the Moray Firth. The route to the summit is mainly pathless.
The mountain side was tragically the spot where Prince George, Duke of Kent, was killed in an air crash on 25 August 1942, whilst serving in the RAF.
