Taj Mahal Destroyed by Fire

Possibly the most northerly Indian take-away on the British mainland, the Taj Mahal in Castletown, was completely gutted by fire in the wee hours of Thursday morning.

Undoubtedly the most dramatic thing to have happened in Castletown since… well… it must have been dramatic.

When I lived in Castletown, this was a greasy-spoon caff, but since became “the most popular curry house in Caithness” (stop that laughing at the back). There are dark hints of sabotage, although not by the owners, which mercifully didn’t result in any injuries (doubly-so as it was next to the local garage and petrol station).

A terrible shame.

    That’s very sad. I hope the north gets a new curry house soon.

    Thurso has a very classy sit-down place and a carry-out. Truly this was a loss, though.

    You have a relatively uncommon surname. Welsh borderland?
