WHAT TO DO IN THE AREAThe North West of Scotland, is the furthest point of Scotland and rewards those that make the journey. With impressive beaches, hills and vast open spaces, it is exactly the image of Scotland that is imagined in advance. Mountains like Ben Hope and Foinaven stand proud over the landscape and are a haven for walkers. Places like Kinlochbervie, Durness and Tongue are synonymous to the area. For golfers, the nine-hole course at Durness is the most north westerly on the mainland. Nearby is the Cocoa Mountain café, which is a must for all chocolate fans. Fishing for brown trout in hill lochs and sea fishing can be arranged locally. This area is known for its sand, sea and setting.
