Northern Highlands

This route boasts some of the most magnificent scenery in Europe with wild mountains and lochs, foaming salmon rivers, rugged coastlines with mighty sea cliffs and secluded sandy bays, isolated crofts and large farms, small fishing villages and bustling towns.

Starting at the thriving fishing village of Ullapool, the route winds its way north through magnificent mountain country, passing the picturesque villages of Achiltibuie, Lochinver and Kinlochbervie as it makes for Durness in the north-west corner of Scotland.

From Durness, the route heads east through gradually softening scenery to John O'Groats, taking you from one end of Scotland's north coast to the other.
