Jayne Blackburn at Castlehill Heritage Centre in Caithness has kindly sent pictures of all the baskets they have in their collection. As well as the unusual back creel featured in the article ‘A Caithness Creel’ they have quite a collection of other baskets. Amongst other things they have a good collection of egg baskets, an unusual frame style shopping basket, a berry picking basket, linen baskets and bicycle baskets. Pictured are close ups of a few of them.
