Sutherland is a county that generates superlatives. There are championship standard golf courses, beaches rated by many as the best in Britain, some of the very finest mountain scenery, and world-class angling.
Sutherland cuisine is rapidly gaining a reputation for its excellence: fresh salmon, seafood, venison and other game are available across the county. The standard of service is higher than ever before, with a range of accommodation from youth hostels to luxury hotels with their own sports and leisure clubs.
These days, the county hosts a number of increasingly popular annual and occasional events, such as Geopark guided tours, village gala weeks, wildlife "Wild Encounters", forest walks and even continental markets.
