SOME OF OUR TOP PICKS FOR PLACES TO WALK IN THE CENTRAL HIGHLANDS

GLEN AFFRIC

Plodda Falls and Tweedmouth Trails

There are two walking trails in this area, created by the Forestry Commission of Scotland – The Plodda Falls Trail and the Tweedmouth Trail. Both feature amazing views of the 46 metre high falls. They start at Tomich village. Simply follow the signs to the car park and the trails are waymarked from there.

Dog Falls and Coire Loch

The Dog Falls Trail through beautiful woodland takes you up to a viewpoint overlooking Dog Falls. The Coire Loch Trail leads to a hidden loch. Waymarked by the Forestry Commission.

GLEN NEVIS

 

Nevis Gorge and An Steall

A lovely walk through the steep-sided Nevis Gorge to an impressive waterfall, An Steall, cascading from a hanging valley (Coire A’ Mhail). This is a very impressive short walk with much geological and botanical interest, as well as stunning mountain views of the slopes of Ben Nevis. There is an interpretation board at the start of the route, introducing the walk, wildlife and geology. The path begins at a large car park at the end of the Glen road.
