Castles and watersport
The white sands of Achmelvich Beach glisten in the sunlight, lapped by clear water that rolls across the gently shelved gradient out to sea. The area's unparalleled morphology makes for striking hikes along the coast. Children will get a thrill from windsurfing, kayaking, and water skiing in the bay. You can also enjoy family fishing trips – catch haddock, whiting, and mackerel to grill up for a tasty meal.
Kids are dwarfed by Clachtoll Broch, one of the most visually imposing Iron Age settlements in Scotland. Not far from sandy Clachtoll Beach, the ruins of a vast roundhouse tower at over three metres, despite collapsing in around 150 BCE. A visit to Hermit's Castle will inspire little ones. Supposedly Europe's smallest castle, this petite pile was built in the 1950s by English architect David Scott. Though it is now uninhabited, it remains an enthralling building, positioned imposingly atop a coastal crag.
Falls and climbs
The Falls of Kirkaig reward those who have trekked through the moorland and dappled glens along the path to arrive here. Crashing water breaks the tranquillity, falling in sheets down the rocky precipice. Take care as you descend, as the path steepens rapidly. Why not hire a kayak with NorWest Sea Kayaking and paddle around the Lochinver coastline? Spot wildlife, from surfacing seals to dolphins, off the coast in this atmospheric spot.
Suilven, one of the finest mountains in Scotland, rises in a blimp-like form from its base. Despite being only 731 metres in height, its strange shape differentiates it from the rest of the escarpment. Deer stalk its slopes, and sublime views await those intrepid enough to ascend to the summit. Don't miss out on a trip to the Inchnadamph Bone Caves, where ancient bones of reindeer, wolves, and bears have been discovered. The walk to the cave is around four kilometres, and suitable for families.
