Firth the ground is generally low and sandy. The
surface consists chiefly of mountainous moorland, varied
by numerous straths or narrow valleys which open
towards the sea. The highest summit is Ben More
Assynt, alt. 3273 ft. The principal streams are the
Oykell, Brora, Helmsdale, Halladale, Naver, and Hope.
Of numerous lochs the largest are Lochs Shin, Assynt,
Naver, Laoghal, Hope, and More. The angling in the
lochs and streams is good, especially for trout. The
coast fisheries are considerable. The amount of arable
land is comparatively very small. There are extensive
deer forests, and sheep are grazed in great numbers.
