Achiltibuie, Wester Ross
Achiltibuie is a real gem of a holiday destination. The area is crofting country and it offers a welcome change from the hustle and bustle of life in the towns and cities. The magnificent Scottish highlands, with tremendous scenery and a relaxed pace of life, are an ideal location for unwinding and getting back in touch with nature. There are lovely walks amongst the hills and along the coastline with a choice of fantastic beaches and there are a whole host of activities to suit all the family.
Patagonia has stunning views of the Summer Isles and overlooks the island of Tanera Mor. This area has an abundance of things to do: bag a few Munroes; fly a kite; go kayaking; or just relax. There is salmon and sea trout fishing available (Garve, Inver and Kirkaig to name but three), brown trout trips on local lochs, and mackerel fishing off the harbour wall (children love this!).
Bring your bikes as there are lovely cycle rides and bring your golf clubs too (Ullapool has a fun and challenging 18 hole golf course). If you want to go further afield you can drive the 'wee man road' to Lochinver fishing port where you can see the Highland Pottery Shop and watch the potters at work. Alternatively just relax with a book, paint, draw or play games.
Patagonia is the perfect place to do as much or as little as you want - and then return to a roaring fire!
