Walks on the Melvaig Peninsula

Some of the best views in Wester Ross are from the series of peninsulas – Applecross, Melvaig, Scoraig and Coigach – looking north along the coast to the mountains that stand in a line towering over the Minch. This picture was taken earlier this month from the Melvaig Peninsula on the high ground near the summit An Cuaidh at 296m. It looks north east to the mountains of Dundonnell.

Melvaig Peninsula Looking North

The walk the drops steeply down into a ancient birch forest (below) before turning west to the dramatic beach and bay at Camas Mor. From there it is a short but rough walk to the Rubha Reidh Lighthouse. At around 5 miles it isn’t too ambitious but it is varied and occasionally very rough make it an ideal adventure for families and groups looking for something that combines hills, coastal views and somewhere very beautiful for lunch! One of the best lower-level walks in the area for groups of any age.
