Inverness is such a beautiful place. Take a walk at dusk along the canal and admire the beautiful old houses. Do a MacBackers tour through the higlands. Cheap as chips and a fabulous experience.
I have visited Durness on several occasions this year and cant get enough of the place! The views and the locals are second to none. I was unfortunate to lose my dog in the area and the locals could not have done enough to help by letting me put up posters in their shops,pubs, etc. There are plenty of stunning walks along the beaches or the cliffs, the amenities include a general store, camp site, Bunkhouse, Garage, Sango Sands complex (Restaraunt & Bar),Stonemason shop (owner's a smashing guy!), and the nearby Balnakeil craft village. I would recommend Durmess as a "must-go" place to visit.
Durness is an amazing place. I went there this summer and it may the most beautiful place that I have ever been. It is also wonderfully peaceful. I could have sat on those beaches for hours. I didn't want to leave.
I expected to be blown away by Durness as I had read about how amazing it was, but I would only recommend looking around for a couple of hours at most. The whole place is terribly backward and a bit like Craggy Island from Father Ted!
In 1999 friends from county Durham took my husband and me on a wonderful drive around Scotland. We had been as far north as Lochinver by car before, but this time we got as far as Orkney. I had longed to see Durness for years, and it was all I expected. We had a gorgeous meal as well at the bookshop at Balnakeil Bay. Northwest Scotland is fabulous!
Last summer my friend and I visited Durness. We had heard that it was a very beautiful an unique place, but when we got there we were simply blown away! There is a special spirit around Durness. Some may find the life up there too simple and lonely, but my opinion is that if you need a place to completely relax and want to experience a piece of the greatness of nature, Durness is the place to put on your travelmap. The "Balnakeil Beach" is so beatiful with its black cliffs, everyone owes themselves a visit to Durness!
