Uncover the mysteries of ancient Scotland by heading northwest, and staying in hotels situated deep in the heart of the Scottish Highlands. Here, in the county of Sutherland you will be treated to pristine scenery and imposing mountains.
Climb Mount Arkle
Scotland has a long relationship with hikers; they have traversed every part of the country, but the part that has remained unspoilt by human hands, is the most north westerly region of the Highlands. One of the area’s biggest draws, especially for avid hill walkers, is Arkle. This impressive mountain puts its climbers to the test, as like its counterpart—Foinhaven—this peak is made from slippery quartzite, making the 880m ascent on fairly difficult terrain, that much more demanding to scale.
Find Hotels in Ullapool and Inverness
If you’re thinking of climbing Arkle or taking part in the walks around Sutherland, there are lots of options when it comes to accommodation. Stay along the north western coast in Ullapool where you can fit in a long day of climbing and head back to a soft bed, or for a mixture of sophistication and wilderness, book a hotel in Inverness, which offers trips out to this stunning region of Scotland.
