There were parts we avoided while heading north as they connected with the North Coast 500 which since its creation a few years ago has become incredibly popular. We are always keen to avoid large groups especially during Covid and we prefer quieter locations anyway.
We worked our way up to Ullapool for an overnight stop before exploring the beautiful Achmelvich Beach the next day. There are actually a couple of beaches at Achmelvich and we thought the second beach was even more beautiful. The incredibly clear water here was glowing turquoise when the sun hit it. The car park is a little small and does get busy quickly. Luckily we arrived early, but by the afternoon there were no more places to park. Also be aware of the road leading to Achmelvich, it is very tight and narrow.
Our time in Scotland was coming to an end and we started to head back down south. We parked overnight near Loch Ness before heading back to Glen Coe for one last photo session in the beautiful sunshine. We have always been lucky with the Scottish weather, but even the weather on this trip had surprised us. We had two days of on and off rain and the rest of the time we had dry sunny weather.
Scotland is a magical place, the last wilderness in the UK, and one of our favourite places to explore which is made even better when visiting in a motorhome.
