2. The Af­fric Kin­tail Way

Country Walking Magazine (UK) - - Discover -

Opened in 2015, the Af­fric Kin­tail Way is com­pletely signed and way­marked, and you’ll find it on OS maps too. It runs for 44 miles from Drum­nadro­chit on the shores of Loch Ness to Mor­vich on the sea-loch of Loch Duich on the west coast. It sticks mainly to the glens– no­tably the stunning Glen Af­fric (above) – and fol­lows old drove roads most of the way. There’s plenty of grad­ual as­cent along its four-day course (over 6000ft in fact) but it doesn’t re­quire you to sum­mit any of the big beasts along the way – just to gawp at them. It can also be ex­tended to or from In­ver­ness, mak­ing a coast-to-coast cross­ing of Scot­land at one of its most beau­ti­ful waist­lines. WALK IT: The of­fi­cial web­site www.af­frick­in­tail­way.com has down­load­able route guides and maps plus plan­ning info too.
