Wester Ross in the NW Highlands of Scotland - a land of stunning loch and mountain scenery, magnificent white sand beaches, abundant wildlife, wide open spaces and peace and tranquility. This is the region referred to as one of the top five "Lonely Planet" places to visit in the whole of the UK!
Enjoy Wester Ross with activities, walks, and experiences that can show you the wild side of Wester Ross! Then arrive back to an evening spent in great company, great food, music - and some local ales! Look what we had last October......
And for 2015, there will be another! Follow our events listings for full details once they are announced - Provisional dates are October 9th - 19th!
How do you get to Wester Ross? Well, one way is to come from Inverness along past Rogie falls, then on to Corrieshalloch Gorge (one of our "Big 5" reasons to visit Wester Ross!). From there, head South towards Inverewe Gardens, (another "Big 5"!), near Poolewe. Here's a video from the National Trust for Scotland that shows you the way!
This route forms part of the "North Coast 500" trail, which takes visitors through 500 miles of stunning mountain and coastal scenery - take the 500 at your leisure, and experience the many attractions of the beautiful corner of North Western Europe at its best! For just a flavour of this.....
