We have had 2 weeks in this beautiful part of Scotland
After 20 years of covering to Scotland, This is the worst weather we have ever had – rain for 2 weeks & no sun except for the first day. However, the only thing we were prevented from doing was getting to the Summits of Ben more, Cut mor & Cut Beag – The mist was just too thick (decided against the helicopter rescue option!)
The walk from here to Reiff and then around the head and towards Achnahaird is great walk – a beautiful protected sandy bay not fun from Reiff ( We wish had taken swimming stuff) We did not do the complete circle had an exhilaration day.
The best walk was certainly from Achnahaird & towards Garvie Bay & back along the wood to Achnahaird – wonderful coastline & seats to be seen! Evenly new view is great. The waves were pounding the cliffs on the day we went which was even move spectacular.
The pear road from ‘walking around achiltibue’ was surprisingly good.
The Summer Isle ‘Curise’ from Achiltibue guay was wonderful – we did the free day which meals you have 31/2 hours on Tanera More – The load to Lochinver is beautyful but we were not impressed by the town even the ‘pie shop’ couldnot tempt us. As vegeraunans the vegetable curry pie, gave us a bad feeling. However, the ‘Achins’ coffee shop & bookshop was good or a proceed to the 2 mile walk to the falls of Kirkaig – a scramble at the end but you don’t have to go all the way down to see the falls. Stac Pollaidh is a must – needless to say.
We liked the an fuaran – good beer & atmosphere. Bar food at Summer Isles hotel excellent. Clups or hed cullen beer at the ‘sea forth’ in Ullapool also good.
We be came absences by the blackcurrants from the stall near the smokey – wonderful.
