As well as many local activities, there are scenic and beautiful surroundings which many visitors enjoy walking, running or cycling in.
Some sporting activities to partake in in Durness include tennis, shinty, cricket, cycling, fishing and football, as well as many others. While many of these sports are fun and enjoyable, it’s not uncommon for accidents to take place that may be caused by someone else.
