Category: Affric Kintail Way
The Affric Kintail Way is a fully signposted, cross-country route stretching almost 44 miles from Drumnadrochit on Loch Ness to Morvich in Kintail. Given the proximity to the Great Glen Way, it is quite possible to extend your route to/from Inverness and enjoy a spectacular coast to coast trek. The trail takes in a variety of landscapes with stunning views – ancient drove roads, deep lochs, towering glens, ancient woodlands, The Glen Affric National Nature Reserve and an optional stay at the Alltbeithe Youth Hostel the most remote in the Highlands. Some sections can be quite strenuous and there is in excess of 6000 feet of ascent over the course of the trail.
