The Cocoa Mountain CHOCOLATE BAR is located in the Balnakeil Craft Village , half a mile north-west of Durness - the most north-westerly village on mainland Scotland .
Travelling north from Inverness to Durness, it is impossible not to travel through breathtaking scenery. We would recommend travelling via Bonar Bridge and Lairg taking the A838 from Laxford Bridge , OR the glorious west coast route via Ullapool , OR via Thurso, Bettyhill and Tongue on the North Coast
All roads offer unrivalled sightseeing, not to be missed
Security is the main consideration for online purchasing which is why we take security very seriously at Cocoa Mountain.
Whenever your personal information is sent to or from us we ensure that the information is sent securely using the latest SSL encryption (Secure Socket Layers). This means that the information cannot be intercepted and decrypted by anyone else - for tech-heads, we use a variable SSL encryption at 128 to 40 bit dependant on the browser capabilities. All of your orders and details are kept in a secure database on our webserver and can only be accessed by key members of the Cocoa Mountain staff and are not shared with anyone else.
But don't take our word for it!
Whenever you login / register / order you will see this in the top right hand corner of the screen:
This is an unofficial reminder to you that you are in a secure area of the website, but the official confirmation can be found by looking for the locked padlock icon on the bottom right (Internet Explorer) or bottom left of your browser window. This shows that you are using secure encryption. If you double click on the padlock it will bring up more details about our security certificate including the encryption level and the fact that the certificate is in our name!
You can also tell you are in a secure area by looking at the url of the page (in the address bar of your browser). This will always start with " https:// " instead of plain old http://
If you have any other questions about our security, please feel free to contact the webmaster
