Don't get me wrong the scenery is stunning. And the village is quaint and cosy. The small island in the middle of the loch apparently boasts holding habitats for endangered species. But... as all things on this planet it only takes a selfish bumbling moron...More

Short walks, long walks, scrambling, ambling, views to die for. It's fantastic with a terrific sense of place.

We stopped in this cute village for a snack break while on a tour of the Highlands. The quaint village was a delight as was the views. We highly recommend Nanny's for great scones.

We walked here for hours with our dogs and hardly saw a single person. Some absolutely breathtaking scenery.

The scenery is outstanding. We took a hike from the town up into the hills nearby and the view from there was breathtaking. It's a perfect place to stay for a few days and unwind. Unfortunately we had to hit the road after one night.

This area is like stepping back into Scotland's prehistory. Unbelievable and fantastic scenery of mountains, moorland, lochs, ancient pine forest and coastline. If you're lucky, you'll see some wildlife as well like I did. The mountains seem to rear up from sea level in isolation...More

Exquisite location with breathtaking views which are a must see. Well worth the long drive. There a few stops to catch the view but not enough and you are not permitted to use the passing places.

The scenery is fantastic. Wonderful mountains. Loch Torridon has extensive views. The road through the Glen is lovely

This is an amazing place to visit, the scenery is unbelievable. There are some great waterfalls nearby near Sheildaig but be careful it's a bit hair raising to get there.
