Kyle of Durness is a coastal inlet on the north coast of Scotland in the county of Sutherland. The danger area associated with the range includes sea areas to the north of the bay and the range is used for live firing from Royal Navy vessels as well as for bombing practice by the RAF. The River Dionard and Grudie River flow into the Kyle at its southern end with the Daill River and a of minor streams also flowing into the Kyle along its length.
The geology along the eastern side of the Kyle is limestone with rolling grasslands dominating. The A road runs along the eastern shore of the kyle in its southern section, with an unclassified road leading to Keoldale, the only remaining settlement on the shore.
The western shore of the Kyle is uninhabited with the former farmste at Achimore and Daill the only settlements. The Cape Wrath road runs along the shore from the ferry slipway. This dates from the s having been built to supply the lighthouse at Cape Wrath. Ina skull was discovered next to a sub-rectangular cairn to the West of the Kyle.
Further excavations of the cairn found two burials, one adult male and one teen of unknown sex. They lived sometime during the 1st century BC to the 1st century AD. Traditionally the practice of burying people in a sub-rectangular cairns was thought to be a Pictish practice but this discovery has led archaeologists to believe this practice started before the Picts.
