Located in The Scottish Highlands on The Wester Ross Coast with it’s perfect combination of stunning beaches and mountain ranges. If you are doing the North Coast 500, recognised as one of the world’s great car journeys, we are about a third of the way round, anti-clockwise from Inverness.

If you are un-aware Scotland created the North Coast 500 a few years ago to help give the Northern Highlands an identity as a road trip. If you use (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) there are many groups with information about the area.
The North Coast 500 passes the top of the lane and the beautiful beaches of Mellon Udrigle and Little Gruinard Bay are a five-minute drive, both perfect for a picnic and relaxing on.
Depending which direction you are coming from, the main route comes through Laide from both directions on the A832
If coming via the Kyle of Lochalsh (North West) from Inverness, you may want to cross the bridge and have a day exploring the Isle of Skye (Laide is approximately three and a half hours from Portree.) From there the route along Lochcarron is truly beautiful and on to the Torridon Mountains. It also gives you the opportunity to travel to Bealach na Ba Road, (Applecross) a driving experience needed with care. Although part of the journey is single track with plenty of passing places.
If coming from Inverness towards Inverness / Ullapool (North East) you will turn off at Braemore Junction on the Corrieshalloch Bridge and Gorge, which is well worth stopping at, the bridge a “need a little head for heights” then through the An Teallach Mountains along Little Loch Broom and through Dundonnell, passing Gruinard Bay on onto Laide.
Drive carefully as we do have Wild Red Deer and Goats and sometimes they run onto the road.
If you are keen on wild life Wester Ross a wide variety of birds, including Golden Eagles, Sea Eagles, Buzzards, Ravens, finches, Owls, sea birds, Cuckoos and many more varieties. From the sea shore you can often see, seals and dolphins and a boat trip from Gairloch offers the opportunity to go whale watching. Red Deer and wild goats are all round and of course the famous Highland Cows are fantastic to see in the fields.
Wester Ross has fantastic beaches including Mellon Udrigle, Red Point, Big Sands, Little Gruinard, Slaggan. Walking offers something for everyone, an evening stroll on the beach, forest walks and some of the most challenging mountains in the British Isles.
Cycling gives you a slower pace to see everything up close, with many villages as destinations or off road on the mountain bike trails.
Every season offers something different in Wester Ross, snow on the mountains and log fires in country pubs to summer days on the beaches

I am normally about when you visit, on the occasion I have to leave (Take Marvin out etc) I'll let you know.
I love the area I live in after moving to the Highlands from Yorkshire. I am still exploring the area myself as each corner or mountain I come across opens up a whole new world. I enjoy the wildness of the countryside and the friendly and welcoming community has helped me settle in and make new friends.
Please note we we have a family pet dog, he's very friendly but please let us know if you are nervous round dogs.
