Wester Ross

Wester Ross contains all the classic elements of Scotland's coastal scenery - dramatic mountains, sandy beaches, whitewashed crofting cottages and shimmering island views, all come together in spectacular fashion. Although popular with holidaymakers, places such as Applecross and the peninsulas north and south of Gairloch still maintain an endearing simplicity and sense of isolation.
There is some tough but wonderful hiking to be had in the mountains around Torridon and Coigach, while boat trips out among the islands and prolific sea and birdlife are another draw. The main settlement is the attractive fishing town of Ullapool, a pleasant place to use as a base and the port for ferry services to Stornoway in the Western Isles.
