It’s a fabulous place to stay, with a huge choice of accommodation for your holiday. For many, getting close to nature by camping on one of our many campsites, is the favoured way to experience Wester Ross in the wild. There are plenty of hostels which provide great value accommodation, especially for single travellers and families. There are a range of hotels, from small family-run to luxury. The classic way to experience the Scottish Highlands is to stay at a B&B (bed & breakfast), where you stay in a local family home to experience Highland hospitality at its very best. There is a choice of unusual accommodation too, with everything from eco-glamping pods to a holiday in a lighthouse.
Throughout Wester Ross, visitors can taste the best of our natural larder, with many established eateries and artisan food producers. The cool, clear, unpolluted waters of our coast yield fabulous fish and shellfish, and game from the hills and moors, locally raised meat and locally grown fruit and vegetables and widely used in our restaurants and cafes.
There are lots of things to do in Wester Ross, apart from just soaking up the amazing scenery of lochs, mountains and coastline. Nature lovers will be in paradise with the seas around Wester Ross providing some of the best whale-watching in Europe, and there is plenty to see on land and in the air too, with native species including the white-tailed sea eagle, pine marten, black throated diver, red squirrel and hundreds of other species. Those who enjoy the outdoors will be spoilt for choice with walking, mountaineering, rock-climbing, mountain biking and kayaking. Wester Ross attracts more than its fair share of artists and crafts people, who are inspired by the beautiful scenery and quality of the light here. Their wares can be found on sale in studios, galleries and markets.
