Accessible only by boat or on foot, the Knoydart Peninsula is often referred to as ‘Britain’s last wilderness’. If you travel to the far north of Scotland, you may consider this something of an exaggeration but it is certainly exhilarating to explore an area that you know only those who really make the effort get to see. There are excellent, quiet walking trails which afford fantastic views of the surrounding country and out over the islands of the Inner Hebrides.
Naturally, the far north coast of Scotland gets fewer visitors than much of the rest of the country and those that do make it there are often just passing through on their way to Orkney or Shetland. However, the north coast is the perfect place for those who value solitude and wild, empty landscapes: narrow country roads wind around inlets and lochs, pass isolated beaches and are loomed over by some of Scotland’s highest mountains.
