My first days in Assynt last year were during a bit of a heat wave, 2021 was such a dry and warm summer for the Scottish islands and the mainland, but it is so different this year! It´s been almost four weeks of travelling in the Outer Hebrides for me and I can count the dry days on the one hand. 2022 is a very wet, cold, windy summer for the Western Isles.
But back last year, lots of people drove up all the way from Inverness to enjoy the beaches and sunshine.
I was staying near Stoer and Clachtoll was very close and probably the beach I went to the most.
Probably the first time I´ve seen so many people on a beach in the North of Scotland or any Scottish beach.
Also stunning and really worth the drive on the very, very narrow single-track road – just hope no Camper will come your way. If it happens hope the driver knows how to handle it.
The parking was completely filled and I think the small camp site made a pretty good buck renting parking spaces out, I was lucky enough to get one of the last ones.
The mountains on my way back – stunning in every light!
