Walkers, climbers and mountain bikers enjoying the Torridon Mountains and wilderness areas will be delighted to find the Kinlochewe Hotel with its warm, welcoming bar and bunkhouse accommodation. There are over 20 Munros within 20 miles and this is a great base from which to explore them. It is also on the amazing North Coast 500 road route. The hotel bar is open all the year round and serves excellent home-made food, a selection of real ales and over 100 malt whiskies. The bunkhouse is ideal for outdoor enthusiasts with a well-equipped self-catering kitchen, an efficient drying room, hot showers and internet.
