Castellfollit de la Roca, Village on a Cliff

Castellfollit de la Roca exists from its peculiar geological spit of land with sheer cliff edges. The village sits on a basalt crag 50m high above the valley floor and 1km long. The crag was formed from a lava flow in this volcanic region and the surrounding land was eroded from the two nearby rivers Fluvia and Turonell. Like Besalú, the streets are dark and narrow, but ooze charm.

Tabart Ness

Tabart Ness is a small peninsula on the north-east coast of Scotland, between Golspie and Findhorn. It is a rolling spit that protrudes into the North Sea while dividing the Dornoch and Cromarty firths. While this lies between busy destinations it therefore offers a quiet pleasant off-route from the main A9 road with rolling farmed fields and Portmahomack village.
