Durness Walking Network leaflet

The routes as described in this booklet are largely traditional routes and tracks, many of which have been 'improved' to make a surfaced path. In many cases, such as the Kyle and Aodann routes, there is merely rudimentary waymarking to guide people at certain points. This approach has been agreed locally to limit the impact of the path network on the landscape, people and wildlife.
