Not only does Gairloch lie just on the western fringe of the infamous “Wilderness” tract of unspoilt mountainous land, it can also boast Torridon just to the South and Coigach and Assynt by Ullapool to the north. These areas have some of the best mountains in Scotland, with a large number of Munro’s (mountains over 3,000 feet), and many other great climbs of lesser heights to attract rock climbers and walkers. On lower ground, there are many great walks around the many lochs and glens that offer panoramic views to the hills and across the sea to Skye.
