The Highland Council Ranger Service is a partnership between the Highland Council and Scottish Natural Heritage with the aim of promoting public enjoyment and appreciation of the countryside and conserving wildlife.

By offering a range of guided walks and illustrated talks, the Highland Council Ranger Service provides the opportunity to discover many of the natural hidden treasures of the area.

Dotted along the wild Caithness coastline, rangers are available to guide you through spectacular scenery looking at wild flowers, animals, birds, geology, archaeology and local history.

There is something to suit all interests and levels of fitness. Come along and join the Caithness ranger service for a guided walk this summer!
