Art & Photography



Right on the door-step of the Smoo Cave Hotel are many really good Photographic, as well as Drawing and Painting opportunities.

Just some suggestions,
- Landscapes, Mountains, Moorlands, Beaches & Cliffs
- Flowers (including Primula Scotica)
- Birds, Deer, Badgers, Otters, Whales, Seals, Puffins, Porpoises 
- Crofting Life
- Highland Games
- Skies and Night Skies (the Northern Lights | Aurora Borealis)



Feel free to ask our staff if you need any inspiration on where to go or if you are looking for a snack and a packed-lunch to take with you. On returning you may want to enjoy a well earned hearty meal, in the Summer take-in the sun-set or northern lights and in the Winter rest-up by the fire with a wee dram.



If you are thinking of walking anywhere, as some local estates have seasonal stalking and Cape Wrath has a live firing range, also check in case any of these are in progress before you go to these areas.



We encourage you to pay attention to the Outdoor Access Code and take the upmost care, especially if you are venturing anywhere near sea cliffs or indeed when climbing a mountain.



If you are driving whether in a car, towing a caravan, in motorhome, in camper-van or on a motorbike or bicycle please pay attention and obey the Highway Code, road safety and vehicle rules. Equally remember to drive on the LEFT, keep your speed down and that you observe the 'single track road' etiquette of using passing places to let other vehicles pass and that groups of vehicles do not bunch-up together too much making passing impossible. Please also do not park in passing places nor obstruct roads and gates.


This is a special place, respect others wishing to use the area at the same time.
