Stoer in Sutherland, Scottish Highlands, Scotland.
Stoer village is on the single track road, the B869, which is a truly scenic travel route just north of Lochinver. While many people follow the main route north on the A837 which skirts Loch Assynt and then goes up to Kylesku and further north, the adventurous take the quieter coastal route that passes Achmelvich and Clachtoll to arrive at Stoer.
Stoer Beach and Bay
From Stoer village you can visit the Stoer Head Lighthouse and also take the walk to the Point of Stoer which is known for the Old Man of Stoer, a 200 foot high sea-stack, which provides a challenging climb for experienced climbers.
Old Man of Stoer at the Point of Stoer
To get to the stack you first need to cross the short distance between the mainland and the stack, by swimming, and then setting up a Tyrolean traverse to allow other members of the team to come across dry as well as getting the climbing equipment to the sea-stack.
The Point of Stoer and the Stoer Head Lighthouse are both locations which are popular for whale and dolphin watching. The wildlife in this area is one of the reasons why this place is visited on a regular basis. Nearby to Stoer is the lovely beach at Clashnessie.
