Durness and the land surrounding, is the ancient home of the Clan Mackay, as well as the most north westerly community in mainland Britain.
The area has a fascinating archaeological heritage, with evidence of cave dwellings, stone circles, chambered cairns, Christian and Viking settlements and the notorious Highland clearances.
The coastline provides the most spectacular silver sand beaches, extremely high cliffs and very deep caves. This is the place to get away from it all - to explore the solitude of the Highlands of rugged mountains and vast expanses of open moorland, or to witness some wonderful wildlife, to spend time fishing or golfing. To reach the far north west point at Cape Wrath, visitors can take the short crossing by passenger ferry across the Kyle of Durness, and a mini bus service takes you to The Clo Mor cliffs - the highest on mainland Britain at 780 feet (240m).
The peninsula stretches out to sea past Balnakeil Beach, and for wildlife enthusiasts Faraid Head is a good observation point for watching puffins, porpoises, seals, dolphins and whales. The Countryside Ranger provides regular guided walks throughout the summer.
