Scotland Road Trip – Day 7

Today has to go down as the best day so far. It was moving day so we were heading further north towards a little place called Scourie. As the distant from Ullapool to Scourie wasn’t as far as the last jump, we decided to take the coastal route.

This took us to a secluded beach called Achnahaird Beach, which has to be one of the best beaches I have ever been to. I may even go as far to say as it’s the 3rd. Not topping Hawk’s Nest or Palm Beach (Home & Away) in Australia, but very close.

We walked down to the beach & had a paddle, the water was actually quite warm at the break but freezing cold the deeper you went (which wasn’t far!)


We then moved on a little further & the landscape changed again. Up from the ground shoots Suilven, Scotland’s most distinctive mountain. He was fantastic…and you would have got good views from the top of him.


We finally arrived at our new home for the next 2 nights. A little croft with only 2 rooms, overlooking their own shoreline! The views from the bedrooms are fantastic. Only a short walk (ok, about 20 mins) and you get to the Atlantic…which we did for a spot of fishing and otter spotting, both of which were elusive.
