The C1003 is a fantastic little road which winds south from Lochinver, dodging along the coast into Coigach, one of the most scenic parts of the North West Highlands. Whether looking inland to the magnificent, shapely hills of Canisp, Suilven and Stac Pollaidh, or winding round the hidden little bays at Inverkirkaig, the scenery is always changing, and always dramatic. At the southern end, the road meets the C1047, which continues deeper into Coigach, reaching Achiltibuie, overlooking the Summer Isles. Heading east, the road runs down to the A835, and so Ullapool.
