Introducing North & West Coast
Quintessential wilderness such as this, marked by single-track roads, breathtaking emptiness and a wild, fragile beauty, makes this perhaps Scotland's most evocative region. The scenic majesty is never forgotten.
Durness to Ullapool
Perhaps Scotland’s most spectacular road, the 69 miles connecting Durness to Ullapool is a smorgasbord of dramatic scenery, almost too much to take in. From Durness you pass through a broad heathered valley with the looming grey bulk of Foinaven and Arkle to the southeast.
Ullapool to Kyle of Lochalsh
Although it’s less than 50 miles as the crow flies from Ullapool to Kyle of Lochalsh, it’s more like 150 miles along the circuitous coastal road – but don’t let that put you off. It’s a deliciously remote region and there are fine views of beaches and bays backed by mountains all the way along.
