Overview

Walking in Caithness - & Some Sutherland 'Caithness has a huge range of walking possibilities from coastal paths along spectacular cliffs or inland to see castles, brochs or pictish places.   Caithness is also one of the least developed counties in Scotland so you may often find that interesting places are not sign posted.  A map or local book of the area will be of great help ...'

'As the largest of the RSPB reserves, we manage a vast peatland landscape which visitors can experience by exploring one of our two self-guided trails or joining one of our guided walks. The new Flows Lookout Tower gives a unique perspective of the pool system on our Dubh Lochan Trail, which is a classic example of the type of pools that are found throughout the Flow Country.'

Overview

'Sadly we have no survey of the whole of this route. However, it has been reported to us that access is dissuaded by a painted notice on the gateposts at the Kinloch Lodge road end. Although this is the line of the Moine Path right of way, a suggested alternative is to use the estate track that lies 400m further north along the public road. This passes the derelict Kinloch House and joins the Moine Path at NC551525. Any recent survey of this right of way would be very welcome indeed ...'

'A walk in along a bleak moorland track is amply rewarded when the fabulous views of Sandwood Bay come into view, perhaps the most beautiful beach in Britain. Spend time exploring the mile of golden sand and dunes, with rocky cliffs and a giant sea stack to complete the scene. Despite its popularity, Sandwood Bay never seems busy as the beach is big enough to absorb the visitors.'

'Walkers & Climbers - whether experienced or not - are spoiled for choice here. There are two Munros in the area - Ben More Assynt and Conival, located on the eastern edge of Assynt are popular with the keen mountaineer. But there are many more walks & climbs to suit all ages and abilities – low level walks, coastal strolls, and rock climbing on the sea cliffs or the mountains.'
