Caithness Glass is a Scottish artistic glassware manufacturing company established in Wick, Caithness, Scotland in 1961 by Robin Sinclair, 2nd Viscount Thurso. The company was founded to help create additional employment in the face of continuing decline in local fishing and agriculture, and to further take advantage of the proximity of sand for glassmaking in the area. They acquired Whitefriars in 1981 though themselves went into liquidation, with only a very small workforce relocating to Crieff, Perthshire, in 2006.
