This tour follows part of the North Coast 500 and probably has the most distinctive landscapes of any part of mainland Scotland. Communities here are generally small with only Lochinver, Kinlochbervie and Durness of any size. Assynt is a small parish of just over one thousand people tucked away in the far North Western corner of Scotland. It is bounded on four corners by the Point of Stoer, Kylesku, Elphin and Inverkirkaig.
Further north, cruises from the pier at Kylesku will take you west for a view of the Eas a' Chuil Aluinn, the highest waterfall in the UK. Visit Cape Wrath, the far north-west point of Scotland. The Clo Mor cliffs, between the Kyle and the cape, are the highest on the Scottish mainland. From Durness you continue east along the north coastal road to Tongue and Thurso, the most northerly town in mainland Scotland. Come visit, slow down, breathe and discover this most hidden part of Scotland for yourself.
