The first geopark in Scotland, the NWSG is the least populated area of Scotland, a region where the wildlife vastly outnumbers the people, and lonely mountains slumber in undisturbed splendour. The park encompasses over 2000 square kilometers of territory, much of it uninhabited, stretching from the north coast of Sutherland to the southern boundary of Wester Ross. This is an area of mountains, forest, craggy coastline, sandy beaches, and peat moors, bounded on the east by the Moine Thrust Zone, a geological formation that is still helping shape this remarkable region.
