This is a historic county, in the Highlands of Scotland, Sutherland and Caithness are the most northerly parts of mainland Britain.

There is much to see in the county, it is a haven for the outdoor enthusiast, further south Sutherland extends along the the east coast of the northern highlands, it runs from the Moray Firth right up to the fishing town of Helmsdale, here you will find the beautiful old town of Dornoch, sitting on the edge of the Dornoch Firth in the county of Sutherland, unique with its world-class golf course, a championship course, ranked No. 5 in the world and No1 in Scotland by Golf Digest 2016, here you will find charming towns and villages, this is a perfect holiday destination, blessed with a particularly sunny climate thanks to its sheltered position, and has miles of golden sand beaches.

Cape Wrath is probably its most famous point and it reaches across to just past the village of Melvich, bordering with the County of Caithness, Ross-shire to the south and the Atlantic to the north and west, reaching across to Lochinver, Kinlochbervie and The Minch, like its southern neighbour Ross-shire, Sutherland has some of the most dramatic scenery in the whole of Europe, especially on its western fringe where the mountains meet the sea.

There is much to see and do in the county such as walking cycling, fishing, sailing. Northwest Sutherland has a stunning landscape of perfect sandy beaches and sweeping moorland studded with glittering lochans, overlooked by some of Scotland's most remarkable mountains, individual peaks each with great character and the most northerly Munro, Ben Hope, including high sea cliffs, and very old mountains composed of Precambrian and Cambrian rocks.

The area today is sparsely populated, having been ravaged during the Highland Clearances, mostly during the 18th and 19th centuries, the Clearances were a complex series of events occurring over more than a hundred years.

A Highland Clearance has been defined as "an enforced simultaneous eviction of all families living in a given area, such as an entire glen".

Caithness, further east, is more fertile and more populated and has some fantastic coastal scenery with dramatic castles, great sandstone cliffs and towering sea-stacks, as well as the larger towns of Wick and Thurso.
