There is so much to see and do in this part of the country it's difficult to know where to start. Every corner of the road brings another fantastic scenery with huge amounts of walks from peaceful walks along the coast to hidden caves in the side of mountains. Seeing springs bubbly out of the side of mountains and being able to drink it does something for the soul.
There are lots of beautiful beaches across this area such as Achmelvich beach with its fantastic white sand. The beach was awarded the prestigious yellow flag this year. Clachtoll Beach lies on the far North West coast of Windyhill between Lochinver and Point of Stoer but past Achmelvich. A well known beach with some rugged, rocky terrain including the Split Rocks.
