Scotland's Extreme North West22nd Oct 2024
The rugged and remote north-west coast of Scotland takes on a majestic character in the early spring and autumn months as Mother Nature lays on a spectacular display of beauty. Enormous waves roll in from the Atlantic and hurl themselves against the shore in an awesome display of raw natural power. The coastal views and landscapes are even more breathtaking and the warmth of our highland hotel even more welcoming at this time of year.
From our base in Kinlochbervie, overlooking the fishing harbour with panoramic views over lochs and hills to the open sea, we seek out some of the gems of the north west coast, such as Oldshoremore, an exquisite beach of white sand and Smoo Cave at Durness, a huge sea cave with a waterfall and a ‘blowhole’. In the evenings we can enjoy fine food, good company and a fireside dram.
NC500: Please note that this itinerary features part of the North Coast 500, the highly scenic coastal route which begins and ends in Inverness.
