The Wester Ross region of Scotland is filled with an abundance of wildlife including roe and red deer, pine martins, golden eagles, sea eagles, barn owls, golden plover, greenshank, and the rare black-throated diver.

On our doorstep, you’ll find the UK’s first National Nature Reserve - Beinn Eighe which is famed for its ancient Caledonian pine forest and stretches from loch-side to mountain top. Be inspired by the variety of nature and take a trip to the visitor centre to learn more about the reserve. Gairloch Museum is a short drive up the coast as is the stunning Inverewe Garden and Estate which showcases some surprising flora and fauna that you might not expect to see in the Highlands.

Of course, Loch Maree is part of the North Coast 500 scenic route that stretches 516 miles along Scotland’s idyllic northern coast. This route takes in rugged landscapes, museums, castles, sandy beaches and whisky distilleries as well as some of the prettiest scenery in the whole of the British Isles.
