Dunnet Bay, you will find sandstone rising to over 400 ft and the most northerly tip of the British mainland. The view seawards to Orkney and along the coast is breath-taking. The lighthouse is sometimes open to visitors.

Dunnet Head is the Cape Oreas of the Greek historian Diodorus Siculus and thus the first-ever place in Scotland to be mentioned by any writer.

Dunnet itself runs along the line of the A836 coast road, but then extends north west in a highly scattered pattern of houses and cottages interspersed with meadows full of flowers, the B855 will take you to Dunnet Head, a headland quite high there’s a bit of a climb towards the end where there’s a car park by the lighthouse from here it is a short walk to a rugged peninsula in Caithness, located on the north coast of Scotland, the most northerly point of mainland Britain, with views over to Orkney on a clear day, it is a wild and untamed landscape, with stunning sea cliffs and coastal grasslands which are home to puffins, razorbills, guillemots, fulmars and kittiwakes.
