The scenery in Wester Ross is wonderful

Stunning unspoilt beaches, wide-open green spaces, fresh fish from line to lips and friendly locals looking to share a story and a sing-song. The joys of Scotland’s north have been there for centuries.

The internet is awash with itineraries suggesting how travellers should navigate some or all of the North Coast 500, seen by some as Scotland’s version of the Wild Atlantic Way, and although you can zoom around the route (which is actually 830km) in a few days, this stunning area should be slowly appreciated.
