View west from the A99 near Keiss, Caithness, showing the 7.5km narrow gauge track used to move welded sections of pipeline. Completed lengths are sealed and hauled out into Sinclairs Bay by tug. The system appears to be out of use at present, despite there being near 2km of welded pipeline visible on rail mounted cradles between the welding station and the hilltop. Pipe sections are moved along the track using cable haulage.
