This is the minor road that runs south for about 30 miles (first part along the eastern shore of Loch Hope and gives access to the climb up Ben Hope). There is a large grassy lay by about halfway down the Loch on the left hand side.

This is seriously remote and very atmospheric (the road is said to be haunted and it's foundations were built from the highland clearance village that was in this wild valley - all the inhabitants were lost to sea on the way to Canada).

The road is very narrow but I've driven my C-Class all the way down it - there was only one vehicle passed our van on a beautiful summer evening - a fisherman returning home.

It is a very desolate road. We came down it in the summer and our LT was bouncing around. There are great spots to pull up and nobody to bother you.
