Scotland west coast trip.. tell me where to go!!


Recommended Posts

Up there soon... hindered with the outlaws tagging on. They've never been up there.. or to Scotland at all.. i'm feeling a bit of pressure to show them some West coast highlights.. they're mid 70's bless em.. so i know for a fact they'll never come back.

I've got a day on Skye planned.. we had a week there a few years back.

So.. I'm looking for recommendations..pubs.. beaches.. view points.. good roads to drive... anything really along the wast coast. 

Cheers in advance folks...👍

First week at the top blob... second week at the other.. near Oban..

Some way up that is mate!! We're moving south for our second week on Saturday. Staying on the shore of Loch Melfort. The father in law has brought a few rods along so we'll see what comes of it.

depends on how far you want to drive each day.....a nice drive from where you are the first week would be up through Torridon ...kinlockewe ...up the side of loch maree to Gairloch ....then at poolewe you could drive up lochewe to firemoore sands beach which is stunning and if you have kids they will love that beach as will you....if the tide is out there is a natural pool about 2 feet deep that quite large but great for the kids to play in ...also at poolewe if your in laws or yourself are in to gardening there is Inverewe gardens to have look round ...its national trust so if your a member its free...

theres a nice little eatery at Gairloch called the steading little bistro type place ...if its nice weather its nice sat outside ....or of course have a picnic at firemore sands

two other beaches i have thought of that are stunning ...but further up....Achmelvich and  Clachtoll  probebly a 3 hour drive from where you are staying....but worth it if its nice weather and you can be arsed.....you could stop off at Ullapool and have a look round...its a big town for up there so if your in a self catering cottage or caravan you could kill 2 birds with one stone and get some shopping in at the supermarket...
