Fodor's Expert Review Drumbeg Loop
Bold souls journeying from Kylesku to Lochinver may enjoy taking the interesting single-track B869 Drumbeg Loop. It has several challenging hairpin turns along with breathtaking views. Head 2 miles south of Kylesku on the A894 and hang a right when you see the brown sign to "An Druim Beag." Although it's only 20 miles to Lochinver, it will take around an hour without stops—but plan on longer, because you'll definitely want to stop. Just before 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 toward Lewis and Harris. There's also a red-sandstone sea stack: the Old Man of Stoer (not to be confused with the Old Man of Storr on Skye). This makes a pleasant excursion on a long summer evening.
