I rode my electric bike from home in Dunnet to Dunnet Head. I usually go before the start of the holiday season so I am not inundated with travellers some of which do not know how t negotiate single track roads.The Head was completely deserted which mad the visit all the more enjoyable

The North Highland Way passes through Dunnet Head, the most northerly point of the UK mainland. Dunnet Head has been described as Caithness in miniature. It is a beautiful wild place, far from the madding crowd. The views to Orkney are stupendous, and you can see puffins, orca, minke whale and, last week, even a walrus!

Visited on a cold, sunny afternoon and experienced the most amazing views across to the Orkney islands. This would be a great place to walk in summer and take in the vista and wide variety of bird and sea life
