The Area

Durness is  on the corner of the road networks and natural stopping place. The scenery around here is magnificent and for those accustomed to city dwelling the sheer scale of the landscape is awe inspiring. 


This is surely one of the most beautiful areas of Europe with sparkling rivers, scattered lochs, shimmering beaches, rugged mountains and vast expanses of open moorland, where visitors will find peace and quietness; an absolute abundance of wildlife, clean, uncrowded beaches; some of the world's great fishing; and space in which to enjoy the clear invigorating air.  


Sango Beach

Smoo Cave is located at the eastern edge of the village of Durness, on Scotland's most northerly coastline. A trip to Smoo Cave has to be included in any stay in Durness. Set into limestone cliffs, Smoo Cave is quite large - 200 feet long, 130 feet wide, and 50 feet high at the entrance.

Eighteen kilometers from Durness Village is the most north-westerly point on the British mainland. The Cape Wrath lighthouse stands more than 121 meters above sea level on staggering cliffs facing the stormy Atlantic Ocean.Scotlandís most north westerly point can only be reached by a bus journey of about 11 miles through wild unspoiled scenery.
