Things To Do
Many of our guests come to the hotel to enjoy walking and climbing in the world-renowned Torridon Mountains. The peaks of Beinn Eighe, Liathach, Slioch, Beinn Alligin, and Beinn Damh are all close by. We can provide information about the main trails and can organise guided walks and treks on request.
Torridon & Skye Munros, winter skills, rock climbing: Private guiding available for all abilities, all year round.
Beinn Eighe offers the only way-marked mountain trail in Britain and is a National Nature Reserve preserving the largest remaining ancient Scots pinewood in the Western Highlands. The Beinn Eighe Visitor Centre on the outskirts of the village has details of walks and climbs, from easy strolls to challenging treks. The Centre also hosts an interesting and informative display about the history, geology, flora and fauna of the area.
The area has long been one of the best kept secrets for both landscape and wildlife photographers. We are delighted that Kinlochewe Hotel has been chosen by some of the country's best photographers to run courses catering for all levels of photographer from beginner to experienced. Stunning scenery inhabited by amazing wildlife and beautiful trees and other flora provide infinite opportunities to capture lasting and memorable images.
Wildlife abounds in the area with pine marten, otters, golden eagles and deer regularly sighted.
If you want to take advantage of some "insider knowledge" we are able to arrange for you to be accompanied into the wild landscape with a local expert who knows the best places to go "stalking with a camera". Eoghain Maclean will take you to places off the beaten track where you will see vistas and wildlife of which most visitors are unaware.
Loch Maree is thought by some to be the most beautiful loch in Scotland. With a fascinating history surrounding its many islands the Loch is a must for visitors. The Loch is home to the Black-throated Diver, one of Scotland's rarest birds that breed on the loch every year and the mighty sea eagles that live on the islands.
Fishing permits for some of the local lochs are available from Kinlochewe Hotel.
Visit the famous Inverewe Gardens, beautiful at any time of year only 40 minutes drive away.
