Fodor's Review

Bold souls spending time at Lochinver may enjoy the interesting single-track B869 Drumbeg Loop to the north of Lochinver—it has several challenging hairpin turns along with breathtaking views. The junction is on the north side of the River Inver bridge on the outskirts of the village, signposted as "stoer" and "clashnessie". Just beyond the scattered community of Stoer, a road leads west to Stoer Point Lighthouse. If you're an energetic walker, you can hike across the short turf and heather along the cliff top for fine views west over towards the Isle of Skye. There's also a red-sandstone sea stack: the Old Man of Stoer. This makes a pleasant excursion on a long summer evening.
