This was a diversion on our North Coast 500 road trip. It is well worth the diversion to go to Stoer Light House. A really rugged, high cliff coastline. We rook the cliff top walk to the Old Man of Stoer sea stack. Well worth...More

A very scenic lighthouse with, of course, great ocean views. Well maintained, quality paint work and quite a photo stop.

On a clear day the view is amazing. The lighthouse itself is an impressive sight. Plenty of lovely walks. It can be windy but don't let that stop you. There is a small kiosks thats sells hot and cold refreshments. Well worth a visit.

This is a long way off the main (single track) road, it is signposted and also single track with passing places. There is a car park and small kiosk selling drinks and snacks but no toilets. Lovely views and walks.

Walking out to the old man of Stoer and back over the hill for views of the mountains and further isles is an absolute much. Truly magical part of the world.

It didn't take long for me to figure out that the lighthouses in the Northern Highlands are all gold and white! It's pretty remote but worth the drive and the walk out to it with great views along the way. You cannot go up to...More
