Northwest Sutherland is one of the most sparsely populated and yet hauntingly beautiful landscapes in Britain. Stunning but deserted sandy beaches lie along the coast like jewels whilst the vast moorlands and glittering lochans are overlooked by gaunt, bare and rocky mountains ascended by few. This is a special place.

The main villages are Scourie on the west coast, Tongue on the north, and Durness, the most northwesterly settlement in Britain, just a few miles from the dramatic cliffs of Cape Wrath. Whether you are an experienced climber or country rambler, Sutherland offers unspoilt trails and walks to suit everyone. Please visit Walk Highlands website for more information.

The Highlands and Islands allow you to experience some of the most remote and scenically beautiful courses to be found anywhere. Here, you can enjoy the pleasures of a secluded round of golf amid a quite breathtaking panorama. Golf in the Highlands of Scotland is an experience to be savored and over 150,000 golfers come north every year with their clubs in tow to do just that. With a warm, welcome that is traditional from the Highland locals, golfers will relish every moment of their stay. Indeed, the locals are more than a little knowledgeable when it comes to golf and visitors can expect pre-round tips from the locals to help them on their way.

The Highlands is blessed with 46 wonderful testing courses. Some of the world’s greatest links courses reside in the north of Scotland. The names of the courses themselves (Royal Dornoch, Brora, Nairn and Tain to name a few) should be enough to make you pack your clubs. Please visit Golf Highland website for course information.

Located at the very top of Scotland, including the scattered islands lay two counties that are rich in natural beauty. Once almost a part of Norway, Caithness still has a heavy Norse influence. Sutherland wasn’t attacked as much and has strong Celtic traditions. Some attractions beside the open land full of trails and breathtaking views would be the ruined castles and monuments that are still standing.

The area is a haven for cyclists. Lovely forest trails and extremely quiet roads ensure your cycling is safe and enjoyable. There is no better way to travel between the villages. You can stop anywhere on the roads for those special holiday snaps. Please visit Cycle Route for maps and detailed information.
