No description can quite convey the sheer wild beauty of this remote corner of Scotland. But we will try! From rugged mountains and white sandy beaches to heather strewn hills and ruined castles, you don’t come here expecting a Starbucks! But you can expect some hidden gems and some of the most amazing scenery you’ve ever seen. Oh – and you simply have no excuse not to re-charge your batteries!
The north coast of this area has a main village, Durness, famous for many thing including Loch Eriboll, Balnakeil Craft Village and the fascinating Smoo Cave. Its coastline is rugged and there are cliffs to be explored, hidden beaches to discover and we mustn’t forget the most northerly Munro, Ben Hope. If you make it this far, then a trip to Cape Wrath is a must. Far from being unhospitable, you can take a tour and enjoy the scenery with a local expert.
