Balmacara Estate

UK»Scotland»Highland»Balmacara Estate

Balmacara Estate: Outstanding, unspoiled coastline with extensive views over the Inner Sound to Skye and the Cuillins and to the Applecross hills.

The mosaic of arable in-bye fields around small settlements, with outlying moorland common grazing reflects a historically important land use of the west highlands which remains relevant to local communities today. The estate also includes Lochalsh woodland garden. The garden has a calm and quiet atmosphere, which contributes to its significance in comparison to other west coast gardens, and stands as an example of horticultural achievement in relatively difficult terrain.
