Home   Our Facilities   Where We Are

Durness is in the county of Sutherland that is the southern land of the Vikings. It is the most remote county in Britain yet easily accessible to the rest of the country. It is the only county in Scotland without a town and has the lowest population density in western Europe. Also, it has three coastlines - north, east and west  which provide a stunning coastal landscape of towering cliffs and golden beaches, backed by rugged mountains and barren moorlands. The empty glens of today bear witness to the great clearances of the 19th century when people were forcibly removed from their homes to make way for sheep farming
