  • This is the third time i have visited but first time in sun and warm sun, lovely place again its such a pity no where to say  more »
  • When you arrive at Sango Bay, Durness, you feel at the end of the world, to the extreme. The feeling you get in front of the huge waves crashing on the beach, the rocks high cliff-like mountains, stretching into the distance, to the Green dogs playing and running around. Indescribable. Take a moment, a pause and breathe the air of the North. If the weather is good advice to have a picnic and eat on the beach with the most amazing view you may have before you.
