Gairloch, Poolewe and Aultbea

Gairloch, Poolewe and Aultbea

Gairloch, with its fine sandy beaches, has been popular with visitors since Victorian times. It is still the main centre for exploring a of coastline, with attractions such as Inverewe Gardens at Poolewe. There are wonderful beaches all along this section of coast from Red Point in the south right up to Gruinard Bay in the north.

Just as fine as the coastline is the hinterland of little-visited rocky mountains. The highest summits here are magnificent peaks, set well back from the road in one of Britain's remotest wilderness areas.
