Fangomore

At Fanagmore, is an old school long out of use but from the outside in near perfect condition. A tiny little building in every respect typical of the Sutherland education establishments built around the county by the Sutherland Estates. At a guess after the education ceased in this building the Church used the structure for services and worship. Standing very close to but not attached is a converted croft house of considerable size. To enjoy a trip on Loch Laxford there are cruses offered from here. The cruises last nearly two hours and a variety of wildlife can be observed including common and Atlantic seals, otters, porpoises and sometimes whales.

 

To access the “Pier” follow the grassy track around the back of the house down to a home made and rather ingenious jetty to board the boat for the Laxford Cruises. Signs at the road end advertise the trip and there are posters around the area. This area is astounding in the splendid scenery. There are fish farms using parts of the loch where there is shelter and accessibility but this does not distract form the magnificent views. Fanagmore offers both limited parking and turning opportunities and a small harbor and slipway. With its scenic delights, plus white house and red phone box, there can be few more attractive spots in Scotland. From Fanagmore after a walk over rough and boggy ground to Rubha Ruadh or Red Point at the mouth of Loch Laxford, the entrance to Loch Inchard, Ardmore and Handa Island can be seen.
