I was in the area and decided to visit Dunnet Head to check out the wildlife. I’d read there were Puffins, which was good enough for me, I mean who doesn’t love Puffins?
Dunnet Head is about as far north as you can go on the mainland. Its vertical cliffs overlook huge waves crashing over rocky outcrops. There’s a small viewing area next to the lighthouse, but I felt going out along the cliffs would give me a better view. Be warned though, whilst you can go off and explore the areas above the cliffs the ground is very soft and unstable especially around the cliff edges.
