Overview

'Officially opened in 2015, the Affric Kintail Way runs from Drumnadrochit on the shores of Loch Ness, to Morvich in Kintail, near the west Highlands seaboard. The start point enables it to be linked to the Great Glen Way and through that to much of Scotland's long distance footpath network. The end point at Morvich enables a link with the much more challenging and serious Cape Wrath Trail.'

From here, the route is signposted on the east bank of the burn and is waymarked through the forest on to the open ground of Gleann Suileag ... Despite the proximity to the public road, this area gives a great feeling of isolation.'

Distance (miles)25
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.'
