This remote peninsula is Scotland’s last true wilderness. Population: 113. Awesome factor: Off the charts.
Because you can spend your free time wandering through landscapes like this.
Like the beautiful, unspoilt Inverie Bay, which looks stunning from above.

In fact, Knoydart is full of gorgeous hikes.
Keen hillwalkers can participate in the hallowed activity of "Munro bagging" (a Munro is a mountain in Scotland that's over 3,000 feet). There are 282 in total, and five in Knoydart. This is Meall Buidhe, looking fine.
Like the walk into the peninsula itself.
This is Kinlochhourn, one of the starting points that takes you into the peninsula. If you're planning to walk in rather than take the ferry from Mallaig, you should contact the Knoydart Foundation's Ranger Service for help and advice on the 16-mile trek.

Or you could hike to The Old Forge, the most remote pub on U.K. mainland.
The Old Forge (first white building on the left) in Inverie is seven miles from the nearest town, and the perfect place to unwind with a beer, and sample some locally-sourced venison. The Old Forge is currently closed, but will re-open in spring / summer 2017.
