Overview

'This is the original route through Glen Affric which fell into disuse when the present public road on the north side of the River Affric through Chisholm's Pass was made in the 19th century. It is shown on Roy's map of 1755 as Road from Kintail to Inverness ...

'The original route on the south side of Loch Beinn a' Mheadhoin is now very difficult to pass due to forestry. Some intrepid surveyors have managed to hack their way through and poles were placed along the route some years ago, but these are unlikely to be easy to find.  However it is a great shame that the whole of this path is ignored for the difficulty in passing a relatively short stretch.  The views are apparently far better than those of the shoreside path.'
