Loch Achilty, Scotland

Discover the Hidden Beauty of Loch Achilty

Hidden by trees, lies this small loch – a peaceful, serene location tucked away from the busyness of towns and noise.

We found this amazing place and we couldn’t wait to show it to you! 

Following on from yesterday’s post about starting the North Coast 500, we wanted to show you where we spent our first night!

Loch Achilty is a small picturesque loch set within sloping birch and oakwoods, not far from Contin. At the far end of the loch is a charming pebble beach with quiet picnic places hidden amongst the silver birch, rowan and heather. In summer, wildflowers bloom and butterflies flit. In autumn the brilliant colours of turning birch and oak leaves are reflected in the calm waters of the loch.

We really weren’t sure where to go first so we took a look at some of our favourite spot-finding apps. After a quick search we found this beautiful spot just 40 minutes from Inverness. Hidden by trees, lies this small loch – a peaceful, serene location tucked away from the busyness of towns and noise.

We were shocked at the beauty of this place, we couldn’t wait to take a look around and snap some photos so we could share it with you!

Loch Achilty, Scotland

It’s a small, free car park with space for about five, but we spent the night alone. 
In the whole night just one car drove past on the road above!

It’s a great spot for some swimming, a float on the water or just chilling on the waters edge reading, writing or drawing! There is even a handmade swing – I did not fall into the water! 🤐

In case you’d like to visit this place yourself, here are the coordinates and link to Google Maps.
