Strathy Point

Hear pronunciation Press to hear pronunciation

Strathy Point projects sharply out from the central section of Scotland's northern coastline. Visiting its lighthouse makes for a straightforward walk with some excellent coastal views including a dramatic arch. It is also a great place to watch for cetaceans, with whales and dolphins frequently seen in the summer months.


Tarmac road (private); optional variation on return across pathless but short-cropped grassy pastures.
