The Highlands Comments

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!
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.
Inverness is a lovely town, one of the most beautiful places in Scotland -- and in Europe, I think. It's clean, secure, quiet, with a pretty castle on the top. It's the best place to visit the incredible Lake Ness and try to photograph Nessie, the mythical monster.
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.
