Northern Sutherland

Photos from Northern Sutherland in the far north west of the Scottish mainland; an area of mountains, moors, lochs, rock, bog and wild and beautiful coastlines, with welcoming settlements nestled in sheltered locations. Sutherland comprises of the most north westerly area of the British mainland and is an area of stunning natural beauty, it has a feeling of space and solitude, perhaps more so than any other area of the mainland. The North Coast 500 scenic route follows the main roads around the coast of the former county and provides access to many of the wonderful sites, with many more accessible for the adventurous further off the beaten track. Ben Hope, the most northerly Munro, Ben Loyal, Ben Klibreck, Foinaven and Arkle are the most significant and celebrated mountains in the area.
