About the location


Brora 10 miles; John O'Groats 50 miles

Helmsdale is a pretty coastal village on the east coast of Sutherland and has a long history dating back to the Vikings who established a settlement here. Once a busy fishing port it is now a lot quieter although some fishing boats are still based at the pretty harbour. Helmsdale boasts the Timespan Museum and Arts Centre which gives a colourful history of the area and is well worth a visit. The village has excellent local services and is served by both buses and trains. It also has a quirky restaurant called La Mirage, which boasts excellent reviews, and there are many other local eateries. Visitors will find excellent walking routes and the Helmsdale Circuit takes in the shoreline and the harbour. The area is rich in castles with Dunrobin Castle and the Castle of Mey situated close by, and the beaches in the next villages are very highly rated. Fishing on the local river is accessible for visitors, and a licence can be bought in the village shop. For an unforgettable day out why not visit Cape Wrath near Durness Scotland's most north westerly point with its lighthouse and fantastic views and wildlife. Nearby Handa Island (SWT) is a must for bird spotters as each summer some 100,000 seabirds gather here to breed and visitors can guide themselves around the 6km trail.
