I drove the long and winding road to Huisinish – everyone had told me that it is such a hard drive, but honestly, after driving in Assynt I found this one lovely and relaxing with a really well-maintained road and the most glorious scenery.
And suddenly there was a castle – Amhuinnsuidhe Castle. Built from 1864 to 1867 for the 7th Earl of Dunmore. Today they rent out cottages and also the castle.
After around 11, 12 miles I got my first glimpse of Huisnish beach.
Huisinis itself is a small collection of cottages and crofts at the west end of the beach, and you approach either along the beach or along the road behind it. (Undiscovered Scotland)
Going up the hill you will get a view of the Isle of Scalp – something I will have to do next time.
