About the neighbourhood
The most North Westerly village in mainland Scotland, the ancient village of Durness, unspoilt by modern convention, offers a truly peaceful location amidst awe inspiring landscape.

Vist Smoo Cave, a large sea cave with a tiny river running through, and the large colony of puffins at nearby Faraid Head, offering a superb opportunity for wildlife photography. The local Cr... more
