Overlooking the Summer Isles and open sea, Achiltibuie is set in magnificent mountain and coastal scenery on the remote north west coast.
This small adjoining hamlet from the parish of Coigach lies scattered on the hillside above the rocky coast and sandy coves. Boat trips to the Summer Isles are a popular excursion and visitors can enjoy a full range of other activities ranging from fishing and birdwatching to sailing and cliff climbing.
The village lies within 4 different areas of special landscape and marine designation or conservation including the Wester Ross National Scenic Area, the North West Highlands Geopark, the Wester Ross Biosphere Reserve and the Wester Ross Marine Protected Area.
Other local attractions include a new geology trail which covers a series of walks close to the village and provides a fascinating insight into the landscape and the history of the Earth.
The road north from Achiltibuie through Inverkirkaig is spectacular all the way, working its way through a rocky landscape of valleys and moorland, passing the peaks of Cul Beag, Cul Mor and the sugar-loaf-style Suilven.
