Towns & Villages

    Gairloch is a holiday resort and base for exploring spectacular Wester Ross and the north west Highlands.

    Situated on the shore of Loch Gairloch amongst the awe-inspiring scenery of Wester Ross, the town offers a wealth of spectacular scenery and activities for visitors. There are several good sandy beaches in the area, such as the brilliantly-named Big Sand, and at Redpoint, which has lovely views to Raasay, Skye and the Western Isles, and unforgettable sunsets across the Minch, plenty of history at every turn, and a wide array of wildlife including dolphins, porpoises and seals. The area has plenty of rocky coastline to explore as well, such as at the Rubha Reidh Lighthouse, from where visitors might occasionally see whales offshore, and enjoy a remarkable vista spreading north to the volcanic peaks of Assynt.
