Sutherland and Caithness are the most northerly parts of mainland Britain. Northwest Sutherland is a stunning landscape of perfect sandy beaches and sweeping moorland studded with glittering lochans, overlooked by some of Scotland's most remarkable mountains, individual peaks each with great character. Caithness, further east, is more fertile and populated but has some fantastic coastal scenery with dramatic castles, great sandstone cliffs and towering sea-stacks, as well as the larger towns of Wick and Thurso.
Further south is Sutherland's east coast with the beautiful old town of Dornoch. This area too has some great beaches as well as interesting shorter walks. This latest pocket guide features 40 of the best walks in this popular area in an attractive and accessible format.
