Walk 1 - Diabaig to Redpoint (7 miles), via Craig (2.5 miles) (14 miles including return)

Fairly easy but long walk on the coastal footpath starting from the front door to the wonderful beach at Redpoint, via the YHA at Craig. Provides wonderful views over the Minch, Raasay, and the Isle of Skye and the Old Man of Storr. Return same way.

Walk 2 - Tigh Brachen to trig point on Creag an Fhraoich above village - circular walk (4 miles)

Walking over rough ground to trig point you are rewarded with fabulous views over Upper Loch Torridon, Diabaig and Shieldaig. Great place for a picnic with children. Look out for the red deer and wild goats! After taking in the views you drop down to pick up the footpath coming from Inveralligin.   See Photo album for more pictures.

Walk 3 - Tigh Brachen to Alligin Shaus - circular walk (7 miles)

From the bridge outside the house follow the coastal path to Allign Shaus. Wonderful walk giving views of upper Loch Torridon to Shieldaig. Join the road at Alligin Shaus for a short distance then follow the path round Loch Diabaigas dropping back down the hill to return to the back of the house.

Walk 4 - Upper Diabaig to An Ruadh-Mheallan (5 miles including return)

Nearly from the front door! Drive up the Diabaig road to the blind summits and park next to the little Lochan. Walk across rough boggy ground, following the Abhainn Alligin to An Reidh Choire. Then head directly to the summit of An Ruadh-Mlheallan on easy, but steep grassy ground. Although not particularly high it will certainly make you puff, but the views from the summit are stunning!
