  Hill walkers will be familiar with our local mountains which provide some rewarding days out - Quinag, Suilven, Canisp, Cul Mohr and Stac Pollaidh, in addition to our one 'munro' - Ben Mohr Assynt.  Further north are Ben Stack, Arkle and Foinhaven, with Ben Hope and Ben Loyal along the North Coast.

  Lower level walks include the walk to the top of our highest waterfall, Eas Coul Aulinn; the walk from Kylestrome to the head of Loch Glendhu, or alternatively from Kylestrome on the Stalkers' Track round Ben Strome and back down past the Maldie Burn - visible across the loch from Maryck.

  A favourite coastal walk is from Stoer Lighthouse to the stack, the Old Man of Stoer, where numerous seabirds nest on the cliffs.  To see even more birds, take the ferry boat from Tarbet to Handa Island, cared for by the R.S.P.B.

  Woodland walks can be found at Lochinver, and from Inverkirkaig up to the Kirkaig Falls.  Everyone should take the winding coastal route between Lochinver and Kylesku where you pass several beautiful sandy bays - Achmelvich, Clachtoll and Clashnessie.

  Further north are more wonderful beaches and walks - the famous Sandwood Bay, or if you are not so energetic, the delightful Oldshoremore.  At Durness you can explore Smoo Cave and Balnakeil Bay, where you can walk across to Faraid Head and find the puffins.  Or, take the ferry across to Cape Wrath, where a minibus will take you 11 miles to the lighthouse - Ministry of Defence permitting!

  For a lazier day, take the 'Statesman', the ferry which most days goes up Loch Glencoul, to see the seals and their pups (June onwards), the highest waterfall, geological formations unique to the area, and on occasion, the golden eagle in flight.

  Come and enjoy a holiday in a beautiful and unspoilt area of North West Scotland, where everyone is friendly and looks forward to welcoming you!
