South Sutor walk
Viewing point and Walk in Easter Ross & Black Isle
This varied and signposted walk from the historic town of Cromarty offers plenty of interest. The path climbs through woodland to the South Sutor viewpoint with fine views over the Cromarty Firth, one of the deepest harbours in Europe. In spring, the wooded hillside is carpeted with spring flowers and resounds with bird song. Near the top, the remains of gun emplacements used in both World Wars can still be seen. The path can be muddy in places and includes a couple of steep sections known locally as the “Hundred Steps”. The walk there and back is approx. 3 miles / 5 km. The viewpoint can also be reached by narrow road, which leads to a small car park from where a pathleads you up to the viewpoint (look out for the small sign). Cromarty is a lovely town to explore and is also known as base for viewing offshore sea life, including the Moray Firth population of bottlenose dolphins
