Durness in North West Sutherland is a crofting village set on a limestone outcrop.  As a result its green fields contrast with the surrounding heather covered peatlands and mountains. This gives a rich diversity of plant, bird and wildlife. In addition its numerous fine sandy beaches, dunes and cliffs are an endless source of interest and beauty.  There is evidence of very long term occupation in this fertile area dating  back to the Bronze Age.  The old church at Balnakeil was originally built as a Celtic Foundation.

There is a Countryside Ranger based in the local Tourist Office who provides regular informative walks in the area.  You can take a short ferry trip and bus ride to Cape Wrath, the most North Westerly point on the British Mainland.

Famous landmarks are easily reached Smoo Cave and Cape Wrath Lighthouse
