It was a nice clear winter day. Although it was a cold and frosty morning the sun was shining brightly.  Eight of us set off from Dwarick Pier glad to get walking to get us warmed up.

Dwarwick Pier To Dunnet Village

A short climb uphill at the start gave us some great views.  We could see Ben Loyal, Ben Hope to the west covered with a dusting of snow. Further on we came across Loch of Bushta - it was very calm.

There are some lovely Geos along the west coast of Dunnet Head which make some spectacular scenery. We looked across the sea at Holborn head. The St Ola was leaving Scrabster making her way across the Pentland Firth.

Many Lochs

Loch Bushta To Dunnet Bay

As we rounded the Head - Hoy came into sight. As we looked inland there were these small lochs - Many Lochs. Before we came to the lighthouse we came to the ’Long Byre’ - a long gully where farmers are said to have sheltered their stock in bad weather.

We went up to the viewpoint at Dunnet Head - as usual it was blowing a gale. The wind had got up and we were meeting it head on as we went down along the East Coast of Dunnet Head. We cut our walk a wee bit shorter as the sun was setting so we cut across the heather and headed for the road.

Long Byre

Dunnet Lighthouse

A coastal walk around Dunnet Head is a really good walk with plenty of superb views and scenery.
