Situated in the Northern Highlands of Scotland, Sutherland is a county that commands incredible, vast areas of remote and startling beauty. A varied but wild landscape of glens, mountains, hills and fjords, Sutherland is one of the most sparsely populated areas in Scotland but also one of the most beautiful. Named by Norwegian Vikings who called any area below Caithness ‘Southern Land’, ‘Sutherland’ has some of the most dramatic scenery in all of Western Europe, particularly when the mountains meet the sea and the great sea cliffs are born. With rugged beaches and remnants of the majestic Caledonian Forest, Sutherland is also the last haunt of the native wolf, which disappeared in the 18th century. Root yourself in the heather and look up - you might see the flight of the golden eagle who, ever discerning, calls this vast and beautiful landscape home.
