Highland Wilderness Tour

Highland Wilderness Tour

 

I have devised this tour to the remote and awe-inspiring area of North West Scotland, this private tour takes you to Wester Ross and Sutherland.

Here, you will discover stunning mountain landscapes, deep vast lochs, sweeping glens, clean sandy beaches, ancient settlements and local communities.

The expanse of the North Highlands will bring you complete freedom and tranquillity in this most sparsely populated corner of Europe.

The epic mountains of Canisp, Suilvan, Stac Polliadh and Slioch are but a few where you can sit back and enjoy the spectacular views.

The beaches in this area are of white sand with clear blue water, such as the beach at Mellon Udrigle. Here, you can enjoy breathtaking views over the water to the Coigach Mountains.

The local villages of Ullapool, Lochinver, Kinlochbervie, Durness and Gairloch offer warm highland hospitality with local shops, small museums, visitor centres and services.

Local businesses like Highland Stoneware, Cocoa Mountain, and a Highland Perfume Studio are a delight to visit and a great place to do some quality shopping.

North West Sutherland is home to the North West Highlands Geopark. At some 3000 million years old, the rocks at the seashore are even older than the surrounding hills and mountains. Whatever your interests are the Geopark has some fantastic activities and amenities on offer for everyone, all year round.

The Clans associated with this area are, MacLeod, MacKenzie, Ross, Mackay, MacDonells of Glengarry and MacNicols.

We have hand picked some of the finest accommodation in this area from cosy guest houses to small hotels, including the wonderful Inverlodge Hotel.

Durations from two nights to ten nights.

Pick up and drop off from anywhere in Scotland.

This tour can be done on a self drive basis. Please see our Travel services section.
