Easy Walks

A gentle walk is a great way to explore the area, breathe in the fresh Highland air and marvel at the scenery.

Glencoe Lochan
A very picturesque stroll around a small Loch in Glencoe village. Just down the road from the film set of Harry Potter III, you can enjoy a pint and a snack at the famous Clachaig Inn.

Go into Glencoe Village and pass over the bridge at the far end. Just around the corner is a sign for the hospital on the left. Turn here and bear right when the road forks.

Grey Mares Waterfall
This is a good trip out for the less energetic or able bodied as a proper wheelchair access path has recently been constructed.

The walk goes up through the woods giving nice views of the waterfall.

Grey Mares is in Kinlochleven on the left (signposted) as you enter the residential part of the village. Take the road on the north side of Loch Leven. Call in at the Kinlochleven Seafood Centre on the way home.

Sunart Oak Woods
These are a series of areas that have been replanted with Oak trees, with low level, easy walks through them. The walking is all on Birch wood chip paths and there are nice views out over Loch Sunart. There is plenty of wildlife and a hide at one of the areas.

The Oak woods are between Strontian and Salen on the left, and there are 3 areas you can park and walk from.

Ariundle
This is a picturesque walk with half of the walk in the open looking out over the mountains, and half walking back through the Oak woods.

You can combine a walk here with lunch/snacks at Cosy Knits tea shop just down the road. Well worth a visit for their homemade soup and cakes.

Take the Corran Ferry and head for Strontian. As you go over the bridge out of Strontian, turn right and travel for about 3 miles.

Glenachulish
A nice easy walk up through the forests and into the foothills beyond. There are several options of walk, all of varying difficulty. It is probably the best place locally to see Golden Eagle. Keep you eyes on the ridge to the right as you go up the Glen.

Go across the bridge at Ballachulish and take the road to Oban. Turn left just past the Dragon’s Tooth Golf Course and continue to the car park about a mile up the road.
