Exploring the North West Highlands

Exploring the North West Highlands by car or by foot offers an opportunity for the traveller to see and experience some of the most spectacular wilderness scenery in the whole of Europe – some say the world. It would be impossible for me to do justice to this topic in this short information item. In reality, all that’s required is that you get going either by foot or in your car and just keep your eyes open. The rest will just happen.

Everyone has their favourites. Maybe the forbidding and rugged coastline with extraordinary hidden beaches most often found with no one else there but yourselves. Perhaps it is the magnificence of the mountains to which so many are inexplicably drawn. The forests, glens, waterfalls and lochs provide equally awe inspiring scenery and experiences for the traveller, especially those that are prepared to get out of the car and go exploring.

Some of the most breathtaking scenery anywhere in scotland

This part of Wester Ross has recently been designated a UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, along with other places such as Yellowstone Park and the Galapagos Islands of the Pacific.

This is wholly justified and represents a recognition of the unique and extraordinary landscape and diversity of flora and fauna to be found in this special place where the mountains reach the Atlantic Ocean.
