Beinn Eighe & triple buttress walk

This is a fantastic all day walk in the heart of the Torridon Mountains Ð a real classic. On a clear day the views are some of the most spectacular (some say) in Scotland. There is a good path all the way but you do need good walking boots as it is still a rough trail...(read more)

Inverewe Gardens & Poolewe

Head north to Kinlochewe (fuel available here) and turn left towards Gairloch/Ullapool at the T junction. Past the Bienn Eighe visitors center, well worth a visit if you have time, with a good interpretive / exhibition area covering some of the local geology, flora & fauna...(read more)

Train to Plockton or Kyle of Localsh

It is not that easy to get to back from Strathcarron station by public transport later in the day – by far the simplest and most flexible scheme is to drive to the station, park, then let the train take the strain. From Strathcarron station you can go to Inverness, Kyle of Localsh...(read more)
