Looking north this panorama takes in the summit of Spionnaidh (Spionnich) in the middle distance and the mouth of the Kyle of Durness entering the sea between Faraid Head and Balnakiel Bay to the east and the Cape Wrath peninsula to the west. Just visible are the important sand dunes in Balnakiel Bay. The Kyle of Durness is the estuary of the Dionard River draining Strath Dionard.
Over to the east runs the impressive sea loch of Loch Eriboll, the location of the classic field work in the late 19th century that unlocked the so called Highland Controversy in Geology. The Island of Eilean Choraidh is clearly visible as is An t-Sron point and the tombola of Ard Neackie with its ruins of the lime kilns that exploited the so called Durness Limestone. All of these locations played a key role in the unravelling of the geological history of the Northwest Highlands.
