From its beginnings in Inverness to its conclusion in Sandwood Bay Kinlochbervie, which is located in Scotland, is around 94 kilometres away. It is a major drive for motorbikes and cars along single-track roads leading northward through quiet villages, isolated communities, mountains, coast lines of startling beauty and wild and uninhabited moorlands, dramatic shorelines of deep sea lochs and sheltered coves of pure white sand backed by towering mountains, looking across to numerous Hebridean isla This route is located to the north of Loch Ness, and it will take you through some of the most distant and unspoiled scenery that Scotland has to offer. This is an ideal base from which to explore the wild and nearly deserted far Northwest of Scotland, the landscape becomes ever more dramatic, here you will find a huge moorland punctuated by isolated peaks and shimmering lochs with narrow and torturously twisting roads winding up the coast past deserted beaches of sparkling white sand washed by a turquoise sea, even further north is Ullapool, which is one of the main ferry ports taking passengers across to the Outer Hebrides and beyond Leave the hamlet and travel down the A801 in the direction of Oldshoremor until you get to the turnoff for Sandwood Bay that is clearly marked. The most inaccessible area of the region is home to Kinlochbervie, which has the distinction of being the most northern port on the west coast of Scotland. You will be able to experience the full force of the Atlantic here, with some amazing waves and towering cliffs. You will also find wide open blue skies and the Am Buachaille, a sea stack that is located around 5 miles south of Cape Wrath. This is a natural harbour that may be found on the most northernmost point of the mainland's western coast. The breathtaking, almost always deserted, unspoiled, and secluded mile-long beach is the primary draw here. The Sandwood Loch is a body of fresh water that is tucked away behind the massive dunes that surround the bay and can be uncovered by following certain clues. The trail is passable, although depending on the weather, it can be a little muddy and you might have to wade through some water at some point. The John Muir Trust has installed some stepping stones along the trail in case you get stuck in any of the spots that are very muddy or flooded. It is approximately four miles in each direction from the parking lot to the beach, making the total distance between the two around four miles. The hike is well worth the effort, provided that you take your time, check the local weather forecast before you go, and make sure that you are well-prepared. The trip is going to be well worth it.
