This circular walk climbs Ben Bhraggie hill in Golspie. The hill stands at a height of 397 metres (1,302 ft) giving fabulous views over Sutherland. At the summit you will find the Sutherland monument. The 100ft statue represents George Leveson-Gower, the first Duke of Sutherland. He remains a controversial figure for the part he played in the Highland Clearances where thousands of Sutherland tenants were forced out of their homes in the early 19th century.
The walk begins in the pretty village of Golspie on the North Sea coast. You then follow waymarked paths through forest and over heather moorland to the summit. You descend to Golspie on more woodland trails through Ben Bhraggie Wood.
The area is also fantastic for mountain biking with a wildcat trail billed as the longest freeride descent in the UK.
