Walk 15 - The Heights of Kinlochewe (14 miles circular walk)

This a long walk into a remote area, on good paths. We recommend you do this walk clockwise for the best views, so from the car park at Incheril follow the Kinlochewe river to the mouth of Loch Maree. After approx 3 miles you cross the bridge over the Abhainn an Fhasiagh which you then follow up stream for approximately another 3 miles to the beautiful Loch Fada. Now the tricky bit - the 20ft wide Abhainn an Fhasiagh will need to be crossed so prepare for wet feet, take spare socks with you! Once at Loch Fada cross boggy ground to pick up the good footpath to the Heights of Kinlochewe. A lovely walk.

Walk 17 - Glas Leitire Trail, Beinn Eighe (approx 3ΒΌ miles)

Starting from the Beinn Eighe car park, this is a relative easy walk on a well maintained path, through beautiful scots pine forest. As you climb out of the forest, the path becomes steep in places (watch out for slippery tree roots) and it certainly gets the heart pumping, but the views while you stop to catch your breath are rewarding. From the summit cairn called the Conservation cairn (which is too big!) the views over to Beinn Eighe are impressive. The way down is straight forward with no problems. A small diversion to the top of corbett Mheall a Ghuithais is recommended.
