The coastal road winds its way through this sparsely populated area, from loch to loch and village to village, and provides a number of excellent viewpoints.

Shores alternate between steep rocky headlands, coloured by lichens dotted with barnacles and limpets, and small boulder-strewn bays draped in brown wrack seaweeds.

Clumps of the multi-branched, almost bladderless form of knotted wrack lie unattached on tiny pocket beaches and seagrass beds grow in sandy shallows.
