The highest cliffs in Great Britain! These can be found approximately 5 miles from Cape Wrath. You will find a huge range of seabirds with Puffins, Terns, Razorbills, Fulmars and Kittiwakes among them. The cliffs have a drop of 281 metres!

The cliffs provide sanctuary for a significant colony of breeding seabirds. They have a drop of 920 feet (nearly 300 metres), which affords spectacular sea views, immense sea bird colonies with tens of thousands of puffins, razorbills, fulmars, kittiwakes and guillemots. Smoo cave is a large sea cave on the beach, accessible at all times with a waterfall into an inner chamber and when conditions are suitable you can take a short boat trip into the inner cave system.

Sutherland holds 50,000 pairs of puffins at Clo Mor cliffs. Durness is a coastal parish, which lies in Highland Council Area, some 35 miles (56 km) northwest of Lairg and 41 miles (67 km) north of Ullapool in Highland.
