Lochcarron is located on the North Coast 500, a spectacular coastal route that runs to and from Inverness, venturing round the capital of the Highlands, up the West Coast and back via the rugged north coast. The route offers the chance to see some of the most magnificent scenery that Scotland has to offer, together with the opportunity of spotting the local wildlife and tasting some of the finest of Scotland’s larder.
From Lochcarron you have an extensive range of locations for days out and trips. A couple of recommendations would be to the Isle of Skye, or over the Bealach na Ba to Applecross, then take the coastal route through the small coastal villages of Cuaig, Arrina and Fearnamore, and stop off in the pretty village of Shieldaig. The scenery on the Isle of Skye is constantly changing, from the awe inspiring peaks of the Cuillin Mountains to the striking and unusual landscape of the Trotternish peninsula.

Nice, comfortable, spacious cottage on the seafront in the village of Lochcarron. It looked like it had been recently refurbished. It suited our needs - as a base for walking the hills to the north and south of Strathcarron - perfectly. Everything was as we wished.
We had a lovely stay in Tor Fionn. There was a warm welcome on arrival (oatcakes, jam, tea and milk) and all the arrangements (address, key etc.) were as agreed with Wilderness Cottages. The cottage is cosy, comfortable and well-equipped. The views from all the windows across Loch Carron are superb both during sunshine and when it rains. Shop/post office are in walking distance and Tor Fionn provides an excellent base for exploring Wester Ross. We did walking both in Loch Carron itself and munro walking (slightly further afield) and had a very nice visit to the Applecross peninsula. A great stay in a really nice cottage.
