    Cape Wrath lighthouse-you will undertake a journey consisting of a crossing by ferry of the Kyle of Durness where you will be met by a mini bus to complete the eleven mile trip by road to the lighthouse. From the lighthouse, on a good day you will see a spectacular sight not to be missed.
    Smoo cave- a large inland limestone cave. You can take a boat trip inside the cave which was used up to 6000 years ago by early settlers.
    Balnakeil Craft Village- a disused army camp-now home to craftsmen happy to explain and demonstrate their various crafts.
    Balnakeil Church and graveyard- containing a number of fascinating graves and monuments, including that of Rob Donn the Gaelic poet.
    Balnakeil House- once home to Lord Reay, Chief of the Clan Mackay.
    Balnakeil Golf Course- the most northerly on the British mainland and with unbelievable views.
