Ard Neackie And Loch Eriboll

On the east side of Loch Eriboll, just before the A836 road turns away east towards Tongue, there is a layby with wonderful views down Loch Eriboll with the peninsula of Ard Neakie below. Ard Neakie is joined to the mainland by a narrow isthmus and has an interesting history of lime quarrying (from the outcropping Durness Limestone), lime kilns and as home to the harbour for the Heilam Ferry across Loch Eriboll prior to completion of the road. Down the loch the hills are Foinaven, Cranstackie and Beinn Spionnaidh. This is one of the very fine viewpoints on the North Coast 500 route.
