This is a shortish walk but one which grants amazing views along the coast of northern Scotland.

Strathy Point is a well-known whale-watching spot and on a clear day you can see from the Orkneys in the east to Cape Wrath in the west. With the ever increasing popularity of the North Coast 500 this walk gives the ability to take a break from the road an get breath of fresh air. This walk is longer than the simple out and back walk to the lighthouse and gives opportunity to enjoy more of the seascapes with caves and a natural arch, and then crosses the peat moor to make a circular stroll. The landowners request that dogs are not taken, given the potential danger to sheep.

The proximity of unfenced cliffs and moorland landscape mean this is not a walk for bad visibility and requires appropriate footwear. Please take care.
