What a place to visit, it was blowing a hooligan, dark and stormy and very cold, even though the temperature was about 6 degrees, that wind chill made it feel a lot colder. This is a fantastic viewpoint with a lot of old building, now u used and it really made you wonder what went on there and when. If you have the time take sufficient clothing and food to spend the day just wandering round the open Lindt was beautiful.

It's a thrill to see the top of the UK and the lighthouse. Well worth the drive and only a little walk.

For me, visiting Dunnet head is worth it for the narrow, winding road that takes you there across open country. Although the viewpoint itself is small, the little lighthouse adds interest, and there is a good view of the sea and the cliffs. I was pleased that I made the effort to visit again.

What a magnificent road up to Dunnet Head. Once you're there, the views take your breath away. We were lucky enough to go on a clear day. Definitely worth a visit.
