Leaving the attractive town of Ullapool with its whitewashed houses, the tour's first stop is at the Measach Falls in the Corrieshalloch Gorge.
Experience the ‘Gateway to Nature Centre’ the newly purpose built visitor centre. Explore this impressive venue before making your way down the accessible meandering pathway that will lead you to Corrieshalloch gorge. This natural wonder, located a short journey from Ullapool, offers a truly exhilarating opportunity to view one of Scotland’s finest waterfalls, The gorge is carved by the Droma River and features a breath-taking 46-meter (150-foot) waterfall called the Falls of Measach. The word "Corrieshalloch" means "Ugly Hollow" in Scottish Gaelic, which is quite ironic considering the stunning beauty of the gorge. Witness this breath-taking gorge from the famous suspension bridge and viewing platform, both offering fantastic vistas of the gorge and falls. Before setting off, enjoy the visitor centre and café set within divine architecture which naturally blends into this exceptional environment.
Drive onward through Dundonnell Forest and witness picturesque Northwest Highland scenery. The landscape can appear harsh and unforgiving, so it is perhaps surprising how many traces there are here of earlier people. People lived along the coast more than 3,000 years ago when the mountains were covered with a dense forest that was home to bears, wolves, and wild boar.
The tour skirts scenic Little Loch Broom and passes through crofting villages. From the hilltops enjoy outstanding views over the Summer Isles just off the coast. Stop again at the unspoiled and picturesque beach of Gruinard Bay, where time allowing, take a stroll on the beach and savour the views of this spectacular landscape.
Return to Ullapool taking in dramatic landscapes, coastal areas, and charming villages which make up this corner of the Scottish Highlands.
