|The Dounreay Dome - Watercolour, 13 x 18 cm|
One of the bestl-known landmarks in Caithness is the white dome of Dounreay Nuclear Power Station. The first nuclear facility in Britain was built here in this remote location in the 1950's. Despite the dangers it was generally welcomed by local residents because of the prosperity that it brought to a declining region.
Dounreay is no longer operational and is being decommissioned. Current plans are for the dome to be dismantled, despite calls for it to be preserved as a monument.
