North west Sutherland received a visit last week from representatives of Scotland's tourism organisation, Visit Scotland.
The group, comprising four visitor advisors from Inverness, Kessock and Daviot tourist information centres, were given a tour of Kinlochbervie and the surrounding area, pointing out attractions and facilities on offer for visitors to the area.
Special emphasis was placed on outdoor activities and the group were impressed by everything the region has to offer.
Amongst attractions visited were Jennie Corbett's Free Spirit Pony Trekking Centre and Oldshoremore beach, and Rebecca Ridgway spoke to them about the Ridgway Adventure School based at Ardmore.
A photographic exhibition of other attractions it was not possible to visit on the day was put on at the Kinlochbervie Hotel, who also provided delicious cakes and refreshments.
The visit was organised partly in response to criticism that Visit Scotland have received in the past that they do not adequately promote the north and north west of Scotland.
The event was organised locally by community councillor Gary Sutherland and a second party is visiting the north coast, taking in Durness.
