Ben Hope is the northern most of Scotland’s famous Munros, and though the hike that leads to its summit is relatively short in distance, it’s steep mountainsides and vast panoramas make summiting the peak both challenging and rewarding. Visiting Ben Hope and staying in hotels situated in the country’s most northwestern region also gives you the chance to discover a variety of quaint towns and scenic landmarks. Such as taking a walk along the shores of Loch Eriboll and Loch Hope, which offer fantastic trekking routes and views of the North Atlantic.
Cape Wrath and Wester Ross
The region of Wester Ross is the ultimate destination for exploring the wild and rugged landscape of the Scottish Highlands, and there are few places where you’ll find more serenity and seclusion than in Cape Wrath. A short trip from the base of Ben Hope, Cape wrath holds UNESCO Geopark status, and its ancient sea-cliffs made from Torridonian sandstone and Lewisian gneiss are a sight to behold.
There are plenty of great bed & breakfasts, guesthouses, and hotels scattered throughout the Wester Ross countryside, but if you’re looking for a little more action on your holiday, then consider using Expedia’s search tool to research your stay in the fishing town Ullapool, located on Lochbroom.
Don’t wait, a Highland adventure is waiting for you, so book your visit to Scotland now.
