A vast array of stunning beaches might not be the first thing that crosses your mind when you think of Scotland, but the Scottish Highlands and Hebrides are replete with sandy coves, rolling dunes, and long stretches of golden sand.
Staying in hotels in this area will afford you the chance to see these coastal beauties, as well as one of the most dramatic of these beaches, the famous Big Sand Beach. This popular stretch of sand sits sheltered from the wind by Longa Island, and boasts spectacular views of the Munros in Torridon and the mountains of Isle of Skye.
Torridon and Ullapool
Just to the south of Big Sand Beach sits the stunning landscape of Torridon, a National Trust for Scotland site. Visitors can enjoy the pleasure and challenge of summiting three of Scotland’s famous Munros, including the 1054m tall Liathach, as well as exploring the shores of Loch Torridon.
East of Big Sands Beach and Torridon you’ll find the quaint fishing town of Ullapool, a perfect place for you to base your local adventure from. Using Expedia's handy search tool will help you find the right hotel, bed & breakfast, or guesthouse for your break away.
