Right on the North Coast 500.
Running West from Inverness, across the peaks to Applecross, up through the Torridons and weaving in and out of the West Coast. Right across from Durness to John O’Groats and back south through The Black Isle and on back to Inverness, never once travelling south of The Great Glen an never once leaving the stunning scenery of the Highlands or the coast. The North Coast 500 would be, in the words of the late Iain Banks “A Great Wee Road”. Except that its a mighty 500 miles long. I sort of expect to see the Proclaimers coming the other way.
It is no wonder that it is heralded by CNN as one of the top ten road trips in the world.
Kinlochewe Hotel and Bunkhouse provides beds, good food and company, on the North Coast 500. This road trip is fast becoming one of the must-do trips for adventurous tourists. Heralded by CNN as one of the Worlds Top Ten Road Trips, the quiet single-track roads snake for miles over moorland as they skirt the coast of the North of Scotland. The route turns at Kinlochewe to head East away from the West Coast to the beginning of the loop at Inverness.
…a distinctive and memorable landscape…
I can’t help thinking that Kinlochewe Bunkhouse might be for the rugged and the intrepid.
On On the edge of ‘The most beautiful Loch in Scotland’, Loch Maree and surrounded by the imposing Torridon Maountains, Kinlochewe Bunkhouse boasts an impressive location. Rich in fish, and swum by otters and overflown by golden eagles, the loch is rightly prized for its wildlife. Its peace and tranquillity are contrasted by the mighty martial turrets and bastions of the Torridon Mountains. There are 20 Munros within striking distance of the Bunkhouse. With their steep sides, terraced slopes and craggy castle-like summits, theses mountains make a distinctive and memorable landscape.
Afterwards, glowing with achievement and happy fatigue you retreat to the bunkhouse. There is a fully-equipped kitchen, but you might prefer a homecooked meal from the adjoining hotel. Yes indeed! Tumble into the orange fire glow of the bar, linger over the wide choice of real ales and malt whiskies and stretch out your legs in anticipation of the arrival of a hot home-cooked meal.
Who’s rugged and intrepid now, eh?
