Experience the West Coast of Scotland
This is a great tour for those looking to experience the natural beauty of Scotlands north west coast.
Our first stop will be the Beinn Eighe visitor centre on the banks of the mythical Loch Maree. This excellent base for the Beinn Eighe National Nature Reserve is filled with information about the area and its wildlife using panoramic displays, photography and information boards. Hopefully you will see lots of wildlife from the viewing window that looks out onto the woodland over a pond and bird feeders. Sightings can include red deer, pine martens, crossbills, divers and if you’re really lucky, golden eagles.

Beinn Eighe, Loch Maree and Red Point
From the Beinn Eighe Visitor Centre we will make our way west along the banks of Loch Maree and its beautiful islands to Red Point Beach. Red Point Beach is one of Scotlands finest. With beautiful dunes to explore and stunning views of the islands of Skye, Lewis, Harris and Uist.
Time for lunch! A short drive from Red Point Beach is the excellent Badachro Inn. The Badachro Inn is situated in Badachro Bay with lovely views over to the village of Gairloch and beyond. There is a large decking area where you can enjoy some of the best grub the Highlands has to offer.
Gairloch, Poolewe and Inverewe Gardens
After lunch we make our way through the villages of Gairloch and Poolewe and arrive at the world famous Inverewe Gardens. Named the impossible garden, Inverewe Gardens shouldn’t exist. Helped by the Gulf Stream and the vision of Osgood MacKenzie who created the garden in 1862, Inverewe is full of amazing species from prehistoric Wollemi Pines to Tasmanian Eucalyptus. Highlights include an interactive museum, the Sawyer gallery, the savage garden and an excellent gift shop.
The final stop on the tour will be to the Gairloch Heritage Museum. Take a journey through time and see how local people lived and worked in the Highlands through the ages.
