Sutherland is a fabulous area to visit

This beautiful scenic area in the North East of Scotland is a haven for wildife, particularly famous for red deer and birdlife. Hill and sea shore walks are on offer here or in the nearby Flow Country and summer swimming in the sea is very popular from the pristine sandy beaches. There is an incredible choice of outdoor activities and sports available. Try salmon fishing or take a boat trip for some excellent bird-watching, sight-seeing and sea angling. Archeological and historical remains can be seen nearby and Brora is definitelyworth a visit. Visit Dunrobin Castle; take a scenic rail journey to Thurso; go gold panning at Baile an Or, near Kildonan; take in the Highland Games in August or join in the ceilidh in the local hotel any summer Saturday night.
