The North West Highland Snorkel Trail

A selection of easily accessible sites on the coast where you can explore the abundance of marine life inhabiting the clear Atlantic waters around our shores.

The coastal areas of Wester Ross and Sutherland are renowned for the quality of the shellfish caught here and a trip below the surface is a glimpse into the world they inhabit.

The Scottish Wildlife Trust has produced a leaflet which can be downloaded from the link below. The leaflet highlights some of the best spots to start your journey beneath the waves but please read the safety guidance before you set out and you may want to wear a wetsuit to keep you warm.

Click here to download the leaflet from the Scottish Wildlife Trust Website.

You can also pick up a printed copy of the leaflet from various places along the coast.
