Melvaig from South

This photograph shows along the coast line of Wester Ross towards the small coastal settlement of Melvaig. Located on the northerly extent of the B8021, which passes through the crofting and fishing community of Gairloch on its way along the north coast, it is the largest settlement north of Gairloch on this route. Melvaig is located eight miles from Gairloch, and attracts visitors primarily wishing to explore its magnificently rugged surroundings.

Rubha Reidh Lighthouse, at the furthest extent of the road, is a popular tourist attraction in the region and has now been converted to offer hostel accomadation, from which guided walks in the region can be organized. The village possesses one restaurant.
