Local area around Durness
The ancient village of Durness, the most northerly in mainland Scotland, remains largely unspoilt and offers a truly peaceful location amidst wild, awe-inspiring landscapes. Steeped in history, the village houses evidence of an eighth century Christian settlement as well as the Viking invasions and various early cave dwellings. The surrounding rugged coastline is a mixture of imposing cliffs and sweeping sandy beaches and makes a fantastic place for birdwatchers to spy some rarer species. Within easy reach of the Highlands and Britain's most northerly golf course, the region also offers visitors the chance to see a large colony of puffins at nearby Faraid Head. Situated on the site of an old RAF base, the local craft village offers a vide selection of local artwork and produce.
