Administered by Highland Council.
The three northern crofting counties (Ross & Cromarty; Sutherland; Caithness ) are remote and diverse. Often overlooked by the tour buses yet they offer some of the most dramatic coastlines and mountain scenery in Scotland.
Sparsely populated, the scenery ranges from dramatic coastlines in the west and north to blanket peatbog and formidable mountains in Wester Ross and Sutherland.
I've separated Ross & Cromarty into 'Wester Ross' and 'Cromarty and Black Isle'
