Walk 194 – Glen Orrin from Strathconon, Ross-shire – 8.5 miles

A fantastic circular walk starting at Inverchoran Bridge in the Strathconon Estate, from where you will head into the scenic and remote Glen Orrin to Luipmaldrig bothy. The return section is via a spectacularly scenic hill pass. This is the perfect day out if you want to feel deep in the mountains of the Scottish Highlands without going too high.

Walk 186 – Plodda Falls, Scottish Highlands – 0.8 miles

Simply jaw-dropping! Experience how a bambling burn – Allt na Bodachan – is peacefully flowing through the forest one minute and then without warning is suddenly hurtled 46m vertically down a rock face. Possibly the most impressive falls I have ever seen!

Top Walks for the Festive Season

If you’re anything like me, come Boxing Day cabin fever is setting in and you NEED to get out a walk. Here are my top picks for you! BEST FOR….. WEE HILLS BEST FOR….. WATERFALLS BEST FOR…… A WANDER THROUGH THE WOODS BEST FOR…. LOCHS BEST FOR…. BLOWING THE COBWEBS AWAY

Walk 183 – Fairy Glen Falls, The Black Isle, Scottish Highlands – 1.6 miles

A short linear walk through the aptly named Fairy Glen, near Rosemarkie.  Follow the Markie Burn to not one, but two pretty waterfalls hidden away in the most tranquil of settings.

Walk 182 – Rogie Falls, Scottish Highlands – 0.9 miles

The colour of the trees…… the quirky uneven footpath meandering through the forest….. the sound of the falls long before being able to see them…. the purpose-built suspension bridge affording uninterrupted views of the gushing torrent that is Rogie Falls….. There was much to love about this walk! 

Walk 181 – Corrieshalloch Gorge, Scottish Highlands – 1.25 miles

This short walk leads to THE most spectacular narrow gorge I have ever seen! Doing the route in a clockwise direction as described below leaves the pièce de résistance for the end: a Victorian suspension bridge allowing you to cross directly above the incredible Falls of  Measach which plunge 46m into the gorge below.   It’s no wonder this area is a NTS National Nature Reserve. 

Walk 147 – Steall Falls & The Wire Bridge, Glen Nevis – 6 miles

This is a linear walk through the beautiful Glen Nevis to one of the highest waterfalls in Scotland – An Steall.  Surrounded by the Grampian mountains, the route begins by passing through a pleasant woodland. It then follows the single track Glen Nevis Road to the Steall Falls path. This trail takes you through the Nevis Gorge, said to be the only gorge in Britain to be of true Alpine proportions. Will you be brave enough to cross the wire bridge?? Don’t expect to get this walk to yourself: it is very popular! And is it any wonder with such stunning scenery all around!? Total walk length: 6 miles.
