POSTCODE: PH38 4NA GRID REF: NM 741 836 HOW TO GET THERE: The A830 runs all the way from Fort William to­wards Mal­laig. When you pass Lochailort you have roughly 2.5 miles to go to Pol­nish WHERE TO PARK: Close to the turn off for Pol­nish is a lay-by on your left. There should be plenty of space to park here TER­RAIN: This path is marked with cairns on the moorland but most of it is easy to fol­low but with some steep worn ar­eas at the be­gin­ning. Once up on the moor the views add to the walk and when drop­ping down to the set­tle­ment – breath­tak­ing! FA­CIL­I­TIES: The bothy can fill up at week­ends if you in­tend to stay overnight. Sea Kayaks can make it here so don’t go by the num­ber of cars in the car park for your guests for the night! PUB­LIC TRANS­PORT: Lim­ited buses from Fort William to Mal­laig, web: trav­e­line.org.uk. The train is ideal for mak­ing this jour­ney, of­ten with win­ter re­duc­tions.
