Achiltibuie and the Summer Isles, part of the North West Highland Geopark, offers enough to let you have a great holiday – all the natural attractions plus galleries, restaurants, pubs and shops. A week goes by all too quickly and many who have come before for a week, come back for two. Two weeks lets you explore a little further afield. Within easy reach by car are the fishing ports of Ullapool to the south and Lochinver to the north.
As well as providing more shops, restaurants and an award-winning museum, Ullapool is the main ferry port for the Outer Hebrides, and a return trip to Stornoway can be made within the day. The Assynt Bone Caves lie to the north on the Lochinver road, not far from Britain’s highest waterfall and on the way to Handa Island. Spectacular mountains, lochs and seascapes meet you with every turn in the road.
