Climbing and Walking

Sutherland boasts some of the best walking in Britain, from rugged mountains ascents to gentle strolls.

Altnaharra Hotel is ideally situated to cover the two most northerly Munros in Scotland (mountains over 3,000 feet in height) – namely Ben Hope and Ben Klibreck.

In addition there are numerous Corbetts and Grahams, including Ben Loyal at 2,504 ft, a stunning Highland Corbett with views over the Kyle of Tongue.

For those looking for a less energetic experience, there is a countless choice of walks across gentle slopes, loch-sides and beaches. There are also a range of forest walks and highland trails:

Borgie Forest Walk
Strathnaver Trail

In addition, a full schedule of guided walks is organised by the Highland Council between April and October.
