The current dispute over access to the now privately owned Rubha Reidh lighthouse, near Gairloch on the west coast of Scotland, has served to highlight the ongoing fascination that visitors have with these strange and incongruous towers, that leap up from our tallest cliffs and remotest of islands. Mostly from the Victorian era, these marvels of engineering are a reminder of a time of industry, increased prosperity and a ‘can do’ attitude that has stood the test of time.

The North Coast 500 route hits the top-left corner of the mainland at Durness. Just outside the village is the beautiful Balnakeil Beach, where cows often wander along the sand. Check out the nearby Balnakeil craft village, created in the 1970s from a disused military camp and now a creative community of artists. Don’t miss the hot chocolate and sweet treats at Cocoa Mountain.
