Beach at Durness

Durness is the most north westerly village in mainland Scotland. It lies northwest of Loch Eriboll and 13 miles northeast of Laxford Bridge. Visitors come to the area every year to visit the spectacular coast line which includes Smoo Cave and Sango Bay. Cape Wrath also lies just to the west.

The former Beatle John Lennon spent a number of summers with his cousins on a croft in Durness.
