Relax on Durness Beach, a wide expanse of soft, powdery sand tucked between craggy promontories and dotted with rugged boulders. Brave a dip in the cold waters of the north sea, grab a board and hit the waves, or stroll along the wild coastline. You'll find a restaurant and bar just behind the beach, and an adjacent campsite makes an ideal base for walkers and surfers. A short walk will take you into town.
