Beaches

•The beach at Sand, 3 miles north of Applecross is better, this is where the BBC series “Monty Halls’ Great Escape” was filmed and “Beachcomber Cottage” is still there.
•There is a pretty pebble beach at “smugglers Cove” about 3 miles from Lochcarron, 500m west of Strome Castle. Please be careful if swimming as currents can be strong.
•Between Poolewe and Ullapool there are several fabulous beaches including Firemore, Mellon Charles, Mellon Udrigle, Gruinard and Little Gruinard.
• There is a lovely coral (white sand) beach 4 miles south of Applecross near Ard Dhubh – park near the Ard Dhubh turning and follow the signposted (and sometimes muddy!) footpath for 1.5 miles to Coillegillie.
•There is another coral beach 3 miles north of Dunvegan Castle in Skye.

Diving
•5 Bells Diving operate diver training and dive trips in and around Loch Carron .

Driving
The driving is beautiful in every direction but these are a few suggestions:
•Drive over the Bealach Na Ba (the Pass of the Cattle) to Applecross for lunch at the Applecross Inn - we recommend you go early as it gets busy in peak season. Either drive back the same route (2 hours return + lunch) or take the coastal road north from Applecross and return via Shieldaig (add an hour).
•Drive to Shieldaig and explore the pretty little village, then on to Torridon (2 hours return) and possibly out to the pier and road end at Diabaig (add an hour). Try the Gille Brighde restaurant at Diabaig – it’s a pleasant surprise in such a remote location. It is also an option to return via Kinlochewe and Achnasheen (add an hour).
•Drive to Badachro for lunch at the Badachro Inn or to visit Redpoint Beach, drive there via Shieldaig and return via Achnasheen (4 hours return). Extend to a full day by exploring Gairloch area.
•Drive to Portree on Skye, to explore the harbour and village (about 4 hours return). Extend with trips to Eilean Donan Castle or Talisker Distillery.
•Drive to Glenelg and explore the well preserved Brochs (Iron age buildings) and continue to Sandaig where Gavin Maxwell’s “Ring of Bright Water” was based. Lunch at the atmospheric Glenelg Inn and return via the tiny ferry to Kylerhea on Skye and back across the Skye Bridge to Kyle of Lochalsh (about 4 hours depending on ferry times).
•Drive anywhere in North Skye it’s all beautiful! (It’s about 2½ hours to Uig). We particularly like the area east of Uig – around The Quiraing and Kilt Rock.

Eating In
•Buy local scallops and fish from Applecross Smokehouse, Kenmore, Applecross.
•Buy smoked salmon and pates at Torridon Smokehouse, Shieldaig.
•Lochcarron Spar also has a good range of local produce.

Eating Out
•Bealach Café - soup and sandwiches at the turnoff to Applecross (6 miles away).

Reraig Forest
•Reraig forest is the sporting estate 4 miles from the cottage and the owners are keen to make it as accessible as possible. Walking in the forest is encouraged and the friendly local gamekeeper (Colin) also offers Argo tours (in an all-terrain-vehicle) to get very, very close to the deer. Some of our guests have done this and it comes highly recommended.
•Clay pigeon shooting and deer stalking can also be arranged.

Sailing
•Lochcarron sailing club

Single Track Roads
There are many miles of single track roads in the area so please follow the following guidelines to keep the ‘locals’ happy and you safe!
•Stop at a passing place to let oncoming traffic pass. Who does the stopping is generally dictated by who is closest to the final passing place you approach. Don't drive past the final one in the face of an oncoming vehicle or you will be expected to reverse.
•Only enter a passing place on your left. If the passing place is on your right, stop opposite it and let the oncoming vehicle enter the space.
•Passing places are also there to enable traffic to overtake. Check your mirrors regularly and if there is a car behind you, please pull into the first available passing place on the left and stop to allow them to overtake.
•Don’t park in passing spaces.
•It is common practice for drivers to acknowledge each other with a small wave as you meet at a passing place to thank each other for the courtesy shown.
•The roads are usually quiet and the scenery is always breathtaking, so relax and enjoy the drive, you’re on holiday!

Shopping
•The nearest bank is in Kyle of Lochalsh - although there is an ATM (fee) in the village and the Spar and Hotel in Lochcarron both offer 'cashback' with purchases.
•Patterns of Light in Kishorn sells some super gifts.
•The Spar in Lochcarron sells most of the daily essentials along with logs, coal, fishing tackle and a surprisingly well stocked hardware section upstairs.
•The petrol station at Lochcarron Garage in the east end of the village sells a good range of food, milk and bread.
•Tesco, Inverness (63 miles) is the nearest superstore. Inverness has a wide range of shops selling everything you could need.
•Local seafood can be purchased at McIver Shellfish in Kenmore, Applecross and smoked salmon at the Loch Torridon Smokehouse in Shieldaig but there are a lot of fishermen locally - chiefly landing langoustine, crab and lobster so look out for roadside signs or ask around.

Sport
•Watch the traditional Highland sport of shinty played in Lochcarron most Saturdays.

Taxis
•Unfortunately, there is currently no taxi service in the local area.

Trains
•An exceptionally scenic train line connects Strathcarron to Inverness or Kyle of Lochalsh.

Walking
•There are an almost unlimited number of walks in the area and a selection of walking books and maps will be provided in the cottage for your use.
•There are several walking websites but Walkhighlands is one of the best and has many informative walks plus maps.

Wildlife
•Dolphins and porpoises can often be spotted in Loch Carron, and the seas between Lochcarron and Skye.
•Otters and seals are regularly spotted anywhere in Loch Carron. Any time of day is good for otter-spotting but it is easiest when the loch is calm.
•Golden Eagles can be seen almost anywhere in the area but the glen between Lochcarron and Kishorn is a good bet.
•Pine Marten frequent the whole area but can be tricky to spot.
•Sea eagles (white tailed eagles) nest on Shieldaig Island and also in the cliffs around Portree and there is a cctv feed of the nest site at the Aros Centre just south of Portree.
•There are red deer everywhere in the area!
