Clett Rock is a solitary sea stack off Holborn Head on the Pentland Firth near Thurso. Its top is covered with grass and the ledges down the sides are home to a great number of sea birds. The rock is about 30 metres high, made of Caithness old red sandstone and separated from the mainland by a 15-metre-wide channel.
