Walk to the left of Mackay Clan House ‘Big House’ and work your way up to one of the highest points on the North Coast. Beautiful views can be had and the amazing feeling of being on the top of the world.

Portskerra Harbour

Approximately 30-40 minutes walk from the campsite. Walk right out of the campsite towards the village past and bear off to the right when you reach ‘The Melvich Hotel’. Walk past the ‘Melvich General Store’ on your left and either follow the coast around to the right or take the high road to the left. It is one big loop so you will not get lost. The harbour is sign posted for you. You also have the choice of walking the coastal path or go down to the beach and walk over the rocks back to the bay.
