Inchnadamph: “place of stags” and wonderful mountains too!
July 25th 2017
Explore this wild and glorious place from Inchnadamph Lodge.
Inchnadamph Lodge Hostel way up in the North West of Scotland is described by one of its guests as ‘Heaven on Earth’. It is certainly well loved by those who have visited. The guest book is littered with ‘wonderfuls’ and ‘beautifuls’ describing the landscape, the lodge and the hospitality.
“This ‘bunkhouse’ is misnamed – it is more like a quality hotel,” wrote one.
“Wonderful, silent, back to nature place”
Another gentleman, breaking a long distance walk, rested at the lodge and was effusive with his praise, “I had the good fortune to spend two nights at the Inchnadamph Lodge… It was all a person in my situation could ask for! It’s a lovely old building with a very interesting history in its own right (there may or may not be a ghost in the building and royals have stayed there when it was owned by wealthy families). There are lots of books to read and always interesting people to meet and chat with. I spent two great mornings down at the mouth of the river that flows next to the hostel and got lovely photos of the loch, red deer stags (Inchnadamph means “place of stags” in Gaelic), and the mountains. The hill walking in the area is simply outstanding.”
It certainly is, with Munros to climb right from the door; dramatic Assynt mountains including the iconic ridge of Suilven; there are many lower level walks too along the coast cliffs and beaches; and the long distance Cape Wrath Trail and the new Sutherland Way Trail pass close by.
Are you getting a picture of this wild and glorious place? We hope so!
