Highlights of the North West Highlands:

  • Enjoy a wild walking experience in an awe-inspiring corner of Scotland
  • Walk amongst the breathtaking peaks of Suliven, Stac Pollaidh and Quinag - some of the most majestic mountains in the British Isles
  • Walk into Sandwood Bay - one of Scotland’s most magical beaches

At the very edge of Europe, the majestic peaks and sparkling lochs of the North West Highlands remain relatively unvisited. This landscape is a walker’s paradise and a perfect destination for a self-guided walking holiday.

The hills here have mesmeric quality, quite unlike anything else in Scotland. The coastline is equally rewarding - sandy beaches, cliffs, waterfalls, sea-stacks and islands provide many opportunities for wonderful days of walking.

This remote and starkly beautiful corner of Scotland is found between Ullapool, a picturesque fishing village and the main ferry port to the Western Isles and Cape Wrath, the most north-westerly point of the British mainland.

It is home to some of the most beautiful and unspoilt scenery in the world, with undiscovered beaches and hidden glens, all caressed by the gulf-stream which feeds the tropical gardens and ensures comparably mild weather.

Despite being less than 2 hours from Inverness, you will feel like you are a world away as you explore this wild and stunningly beautiful corner of Scotland.

Please note that a car is necessary for this itinerary as local public transport is unsuitable for reaching the start points of many walking routes. We would be delighted to arrange car hire for you, with collection from Inverness or from any major UK city or airport. Please request this when making an enquiry
