This circuit makes a very varied exploration of the environs of Helmsdale, taking in the harbour, a short coastal walk, a climb across the hillside overlooking the village, and finally a riverside stroll.
Paths throughout, from grassy and pebbly going by the shore. One section runs beside (and crosses) the busy A9 and care is needed; after that, the path rising behind Helmsdale is rough.
Helmsdale is well served by both buses and trains.
Car parking at the west end of the Main Street in Helmsdale; above Timespan Heritage centre.
