Dornoch Point
An excellent, and often breezy, coastal walk with good opportunities to spot sea birds, seals and many different shells.
From the Point there are good views up the Dornoch Firth to the mountains beyond.

Littleferry and Loch Fleet
This walk explores the eastern part of the Loch Fleet National Nature Reserve.
It has fine views, a spacious sandy beach, Scots pine woodland and great opportunities for bird-watching.

Badvoon Forest circuit, near Ardgay
This lonely circuit to the south of Ardgay heads through both forestry and across boggy heather.
The walk is well off the beaten track and offers views over the Dornoch Firth.

Gunns Wood, Lairg
A short walk through natural woodland and plantation, with some limited views over Loch Shin. Can easily be walked from the centre of Lairg.

Helmsdale Circuit
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.

Falls of Shin
The Falls of Shin is one of the best known sights in the area.
Although not particularly high the falls have great power, and salmon can often be seen attempting to pass up the falls in the summer.
This walk combines a visit to the falls with two short waymarked loops to make a short walk.

Loch Fleet and Balblair Wood
A beautiful exploration of Loch Fleet National Nature Reserve, a haven for birds, deer and pine martens.
This circular walk takes in the shoreline which has good mountain views and the scots pine and mixed woodland.
