Kintail & Morvich

An isolated wonderland of rugged beauty

  • Enjoy the stillness and isolation of one of the last pockets of truly unspoilt Scotland.

  • Look out for red deer on the lower slopes and golden eagles soaring up high.

  • There’s a good choice of outdoor activities, including sea kayaking and conquering the iconic Five Sisters, a mountain ridge incorporating three Munros.

  • Seek out Cill Fhearchair, a 2,000-year-old standing stone and burial ground, and the nearby site of the Battle of Glen Shiel.

The sharp peaks of the Five Sisters dominate the horizon, while tucked away in a cleft of the glens lie the dizzying Falls of Glomach.

A network of trails will lead you up and around the mountains, lochs, glens and coastline. You’ll also find a multitude of other challenging outdoor activities to experience here – sea kayaking, climbing or high-intensity hill walking.

Meanwhile, photographers and artists will fall head over heels for vistas that bring together the most iconic features of the Highlands.
