Knockan Crag National Nature Reserve ***
Region: Caithness, Sutherland & Ross
At Knockan crag, you can bridge 500 million years of history with your bare hands.
You can see for yourself the marvel that allowed one of the world's greatest geological mysteries to be solved. The crag is a globally important geological site and was formed by the Moine Thrust- the force of two continents crashing together. Explore the Reserve through the Rock Room, Rock trails and art- or if you are looking to explore further, why not follow the Rock Route through the North West Highlands? There are three trails to choose from, catering for different abilities and all of which provide fantastic views over the rugged mountains and glittering lochs of this dramatic landscape. The Highlands in the raw!
